Grothman ducks debate challenge because, well, people would find out about him.

Jezebel usually puts things a bit bluntly but, here we are.  Glenn is afraid his views on women will be misrepresented?  Hard to see how anyone could make him look worse than he has himself but, okay.

Anti-Woman Politician Refuses to Debate Congresswoman Because She'll Make Him Say Dumb Things
Fed up with the nonstop anti-woman crap emanating from Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman's mouth, State Rep. Kelda Helen Roys offered to debate him one on one, mano a womano, in public. Unsurprisingly, he turned her down, saying that she wanted to "to gain further platform to misrepresent the Republican position on a variety of issues," which is coward code for "my views are so terrible that not even I am capable of representing them in a way that doesn't make me sound like an asshole."
If the War on Women were an actual war, Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman wouldn't be Rambo, but he'd be close — he'd be one of Rambo's supporting gunman who isn't important enough to have a character name but who is in the background of a lot of shots where Rambo is roaring and firing a gun at something. Grothman's achievements so far this year include recommending that abused women remember the good times rather than leave their husbands, blaming single mothers for child abuse, and sponsoring a bill in Wisconsin that repealed the state's equal pay law, because money is just "more important to men."
He's an entire casserole of WTF with a sprinkling of crispy fried onions on top.

It is interesting. I read Senator Grothman's response and reasoning for declining the debate. It seems to me that if he really wanted to clear up the misinformation, he would debate so he could do that. Guess he doesn't mind the misinformation that is being spread.
