Meet Bill Cassidy:
Cassidy is a state Congressmen from Louisiana and is the leading contender challenging Democratic incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu. In 2013 he co-sponsored the Abstinence-Only Reallocation Act which would award school’s state money for abstinence-only education programs. He has also consistently railed against the ACA’s contraceptive mandate. So it will come as no surprise that Cassidy’s 17 year-old (unmarried) daughter is pregnant:
“Earlier this year, Laura and I learned we will become grandparents this summer,” Cassidy, a physician, said in a statement to NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune.
“Our children have been the greatest blessing of our lives and we welcome our grandchild as a joyous addition to our family,” he continued. “Our daughter now faces a more challenging future than her peers. She has our unconditional love and support.”
