Bernie Sanders is trying to distance himself from his 1972 essay he wrote about women fantasizing being “raped by three men simultaneously,”CNN reports.

Michael Briggs, his campaign spokesman, said Sanders’ essay was a “dumb attempt at dark satire in an alternative publication” that “in no way reflects his views or record on women.” He added, “It was intended to attack gender stereotypes of the ’70s, but it looks as stupid today as it was then.”

Um, he sounds like Todd Akin trying to distance himself from his legitimate rape comments.
