Bevin had come under scrutiny after he told a reporter children left at home could be susceptible to sexual assault or even be poisoned.
“I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them,” Bevin said Friday in a video tweeted by WDRB-TV reporter Marcus Green.
“I guarantee you somewhere today a child was physically harmed or ingested poison because they were home alone because a single parent didn’t have any money to take care of them. I’m offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what’s truly best for children.”
Hateful douchebag asshole
