Update: Civil Rights Lawyer Resigns After Telling Betsy DeVos He’d “Be OK” if She Were Sexually Assaulted
United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced Thursday a plan to overhaul an Obama-era policy on how college campuses investigate sexual assaults.
Like clockwork, liberals attacked DeVos, but one liberal civil rights attorney took it to another level. Rob Ranco, a partner at Texas-based Carlson Law Firm said he’s be “ok” if DeVos were sexually assaulted.
Texas lawyer, Rob Ranco took to his Twitter account Friday evening to express his utter contempt for Betsy DeVos. He said, “I’m not wishing for it… but I’d be ok if #BetsyDevos was sexually assaulted.”
Below is a screenshot of the tweet because Mr. Ranco deleted his Twitter account Saturday morning in a panic.

Ranco also said in other tweets (via the Washington Times):
“Perhaps Betsy doesn’t understand how horrible rape is. She’s made the world more dangerous for my daughters. I need her to understand.”
“Make the world more dangerous for my daughters — intentionally — and your well being is not my concern. Full stop.”
Certainly his daughters would be proud of their father for being ok with a woman being sexually assaulted. Liberalism is a mental disorder. Full stop.
Robert Ranco received huge backlash on social media. Many people flooded Carlson Law Firm with phone calls voicing their disgust over his comments towards DeVos.
