Kansas NOW delivers $4,000 worth of miniature tires to Rep. Pete DeGraaf for his rape comments
Abortion-rights supporters gathered at the steps of the Kansas state Capitol Wednesday to demand an apology from Rep. Pete DeGraaf for his comparing the preparing for the possibility of a rape pregnancy to keeping a spare tire in your trunk, but law enforcement stopped them from personally delivering spare tires to DeGraaf.
“We had the tires, and they told us we couldn’t have them in the state building,” Kari Ann Rinker, state coordinator for the National Organization for Women, told The Pitch. “The police confiscated them, and I had to ask for them to give the tires back to us for our presentation. DeGraaf was supposed to be in today, but I think he snuck out the back.”
