Virginia Republican Jokes that His Wife Refused to Have Sex With Him After He Pushed the State-Rape Bill

This video of Virginia state rep. Dave Albo joking about how his wife refused his overtures after seeing the contentious debate over that trans-vaginal ultrasound bill would be funny, except for the fact that it's kind of sick how light-hearted these conservative men are when discussing their efforts to punish and humiliate women seeking abortions in their state.

As Yes! Magazine's Brooke Jarvis noted on Twitter, it's telling that he can sponsor a bill mandating that an 8-10 inch probe be inserted into women's vaginas for no reason whatsoever, but can't bring himself to say the word "trans-vaginal."
