Confessed Domestic Abuser Wins Dem Primary
Democrat Archie Parnell handily won his party's nomination yesterday to take on Republican incumbent Ralph Norman in South Carolina's Fifth Congressional District – despite the recent discovery that Parnell admitted to "acts of physical cruelty" against his wife, including viciously beating her. (Mediaite)

After the “acts of physical cruelty,” Kathleen Parnell said she feared for her life and did not want to stay married. She obtained a restraining order against Archie Parnell after seeking the divorce, according to court documents. The divorce was finalized in early 1974.

Parnell's entire staff resigned after his sordid history became front-page news. Ultimately, Democratic primary goers, who believe Republicans are repressing women's rights, didn't care.
