Former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) “defended his controversial last-minute pardon of a man convicted of raping a 9-year-old, saying there was no physical evidence of her abuse,” the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.
Said Bevin: “There was zero evidence… Both their hymens were intact. This is perhaps more specific than people would want, but trust me. If you have been repeatedly sexually violated as a small child by an adult, there are going to be repercussions of that physically and medically.”
