Trigger Warning: Domestic Violence

Rachel Maddow exposes Timothy Johnson, the former Vice Chair of the the North Carolina Republican party and one of the signatories of a letter to congress that strongly urges Republicans not to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, as a domestic violence abuser:

"He got a suspended sentence of 18 months in prison after admitting to beating his wife into the hospital, breaking her nose, breaking her toes, breaking a piece of furniture over her back. Police found his wife in the couple’s home on Christmas Day, bleeding from the face and suffering from other injuries. He plead guilty to felony aggravated assault in that case. He is now one of the signatories to the vote against the Violence Against Women Act letter, right? It’s a letter signed by him and by all those groups that have the word ‘values’ in their names."
