MSNBC’s Karen Finney Says Working Women Voting For Santorum ‘Really Hurts Me’

Working women voters, do you really want to hurt MSNBC contributor Karen Finney? Apparently, all it takes is casting a vote for Rick Santorum. During an analysis of exit poll data on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell Tuesday night, Finney took it as a personal affront that working women were voting for the former Pennsylvania Senator. O’Donnell asked her what she made of the results.

“This woman vote really hurts me!” Finney exclaimed.

“Working women went for Rick Santorum in a big way: 49%,” O’Donnell observed. “And that may very well be how he won this thing.”

“That’s why I say,” Finney interjected. “It’s a little painful because I’m wondering if those women really heard the full message that, yes, there’s the economy, but if you’ve got to worry about your basic health care, how are you then going to be able to do what you need to do in terms of having a job, paying your rent, taking care of your kids?”
