Haha, violence against women is no laughing matter. So your LakeCountyEye took note last week when 6th District Congressman Peter Roskam voted against the Violence Against Women Act -- VAWA.

It is noteworthy because Roskam has been assiduously courting the women's vote. His attentive efforts have been fruitful enough to earn him re-election to Congress on three occasions -- plus a much deserved sobriquet:
Lake County's Ladies Man in Washington
In fact your LakeCountyEye recalls Roskam gushing all over VAWA just a few months ago:

Ask Peter: The Violence Against Women Act
But that was back in the day. And before the 2012 election. Now that the 2012 election is over and Congress is back in session, Roskam was perhaps feeling confident enough to dump VAWA like a two dollar taco. Which he did.

Has Peter Roskam put in jeopardy his reputation as Lake County's Ladies Man? Despite this being the week of International Women's Day, your LakeCountyEye thinks not. They say women on a whole tend to be forgiving of their badboys. As long as he gives them some of his undivided attention every now and then, the ladies can be counted on to forgive his many faults. And after all, there will always be time to change him!
