Rape Victim Abused by Word-Fearing Judge

This stunt by St. Senator Chambers intends to mock frivolous law suits. However, I don't think taking on God is an appropriate response in the case of Tory Bowen, an alleged victim of rape who was not allowed to use "certain words" during her trial. She then sued the District Judge who imposed these verbal restrictions, but was struck down. Chambers claims her attempt at redress is frivolous, ergo his "God" suit. How ironic that she is a republican and he's an African American! Read these two reports and look for further developments in the future:
