From SAVE services:
I'm learning that politics is a lot like sales; people will say what they need to say to close the deal. Yesterday, that practice hit a little too close to home.
During the May 8, 2012 mark-up of the House Judiciary Committee, Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) made unfounded, scurrilous, and false statements regarding Stop Abusive and Violent Environments and Natasha Spivack, a member of the SAVE Board of Directors. See: here
SAVE, who are not a group of "apologists for abusers," has demanded that Rep. Lofgren retract her remarks about SAVE, issue an apology to Natasha, and begin to work for ways to stop false allegations of domestic violence. As of this writing SAVE has not received a reply, so we're asking for your help.
Call Rep. Lofgren (202) 225-3072 and repeat the same demand: Retract your remarks about Stop Abusive and Violent. Environments (SAVE) Issue an apology to Natasha Spivack.
Work for ways to stop false allegations of domestic violenc For our Natasha, and for every single falsely accused person who is being denied by the current system, please call.

Stop Abusive and Violent Environments
We may be hitting a nerve. Lofgren has been described as a feminist and like most feminists they are not used to being stood up to and like most bullies they don't like it. Let's contact her office and demand she apologize to those she has offended with her callous words. Let's do it right away.
