Throughout the night, pundits spent their time talking about Republican wins and Democratic defeats, though the latter was still able to salvage some wins. But the biggest thing many in the media seemed to miss was the biggest loser: discrimination.
It's disappointing that this story got so much attention when the purpose was more about attacking and demeaning an individual than attempting to help a victim of abuse. I hope that Lena is strong enough to move past this and come out a stronger person.
