ST. PAUL, Minn.– The Minnesota state lawmaker involved in a rest-stop sexual encounter with a 17-year-old boy says he won't run for re-election after all.

Rep. Kerry Gauthier told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he made the decision on his own after multiple conversations with Democratic leaders who urged him to drop out. Gauthier had said earlier in the day that he would not drop out.

Gauthier also told AP an overdose of muscle relaxants he took last week was a suicide attempt.

You ever hear of speaking or writing in metaphores or paraples. You might take the Adam and Eve story literally. Or Noahs ark. Maybe you think that Moses actually parted the red sea. Why do you keep telling me to GFM. Is that the limit of your intelligence? I've said from the beginning I believe in the 2nd ammendment. If there is a God, I think He is disapointed in you. My guns are in pristine condition and are locked and loaded. Stay away from me. You're the moron!! I usually don't consider people inferior to me, but I'll make an exception in your case. The problem with you is your mind is slammed shut. I hope you can pry it open someday. Try a crowbar.

This from a John insisting to protect a rapist's right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and probably to own guns all because he wants to escape responsibility, when getting a woman pregnant, thus like so many Democrat males, browbeating a woman into killing her baby and living a life of regret and shame.

You can twist things pretty good. go hang out with your buddy Rush Limbaugh. My guns are virtual and I don't plan on killing anyone. What about Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Bush? If there is something that has gone wrong it's the fault of all of us, peabrain. We all sink or we all swim.
I stand for food, shelter, health, clean air and water and a pretty cool place to leave to all the life that comes after mine. I thought we had the brains to do all that after talking to some people here, I'm not so sure. We should stop praying to God and start cooperating with Him.
Quit being such a dickhead.

Dear, don't be so histrionic because nobody is asking anyone to "kill their baby" and, dear, many women believe their serious pro-choice decision is not full of "regret" and "shame".

Such ignorance. Amerikkkkkkka be proud.

The complete distortion of Akin's words by the media and Leftists cannot be allowed to direct the discourse about the killing of 57 Million human beings for convenience by Democrats and seldomly, those they've confused.
In fact, simple mathematics clarifies the fact that few rapes result in pregnancy, because there are very few rapes in society. There are phenomenally few abortions performed in response to rape. 99% of abortions are performed for convenience alone. Therefore, logically there are very few pregnancies, or abortions from rape... so few in fact, that making it a foundation of trying to rationalize abortion is intellectually dishonest and designed to mislead people with an almost nonexistent occurrence.
Oh PLEASE. Akin's statement about women and rape was VERY clear, there is NO "distortion," other than what the rapepublicans are trying to con everyone else into believing. They're trying to convince women, which is half the VOTERS in this country, that Akin, Romney, and Ryan don't have these backward beliefs against women. Too bad for them that their efforts AREN'T working.

Akin made the PUBLIC statement about women and rape, now he can own it. So can Romney/Ryan, because there's no way they can HIDE these private beliefs, not with their public records.

It is a very frightening ord e livein now.

Knowing that a fool can run things! This poor man is crazy thinking anyone man or woman would ever want to be raped or has the capacity for a pregnancy caused by rape, that a person's body could reject it?

It even sounds crazy do you really want someone like this leading your country?

The appalling about the Akin touting his line of thinking as fact is that victims of rape who do end up getting pregnant will think they LET it happen....since, according to his line of thinking, she had the willpower to biologically prevent it during the rape.
Way to take the whole, "you dress skimpy, you're asking for it" thought to a completely whole new level Akin.
Sen. Barbara Boxer explodes: Maybe Republicans 'just don't like their moms or first wives'...Maybe Barbara should call John Edwards, Weiner, Gore, Clinton, the Kennedy’s and Barry Baker Obama and ask the same question. Hypocritical bitches are what liberals like her are.

FLASH: THIS JUST IN FROM THE FAIRNESS NETWORK………A New Report from Women For Fairness ……is asking the DNC if their key note speaker, Bill Clinton will be asked to not attend the DNC convention due to his rough and abusive treatment of women. They pointed out that Bill Clinton is the only President to be accused of rape, and defiling the Oval Office and of being convicted of perjury. It is only fair to all women that the DNC ask Bill Clinton not to appear.
