Congressman Trey Gowdy made an impassioned speech on the U.S. House floor in support of the House version of the Violence Against Women Act, telling the story of his experience as a prosecutor in Upstate South Carolina. The House version offers less protection than the Senate version does for lesbian, transgendered, Native American and undocumented immmigrant women. This disparity sparked a partisan divide, though the measure passed 221-205 in Wednesday.
