Skip to comments.Ky. voters react as Judd's liberal positions are detailed

LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- After two decades in front of the camera as an actress and more recently as an activist, Ashley Judd has been unguarded in her comments -- a candor which might cause complications if she runs for U.S. Senate from Kentucky.
As Judd inches closer to a decision, her outspoken nature is yielding decades of pointed and controversial comments which Kentucky Democratic strategists concede are a gold mine for the campaign of potential opponent, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R).
Judd's essays and speeches are easily accessible on her website.
In one, she criticized the tradition of a father giving away a daughter at a wedding - which she calls "a common vestige of male dominion over a woman's reproductive status."
Judd also criticized the practice of women taking the name of their husband's families "into which they have effectively been traded."
Judd also wrote that Christianity legitimizes male power over women.
In 2006, when Judd was asked about her decision not to have children, she was quoted as saying "it's unconscionable to breed, with the number of children who are starving to death in impoverished countries."
Conservative Kentucky Democrats are also concerned Judd's political views are out of step with most Kentucky voters and may be a drag on down ballot races if Judd tops the Democratic ticket in 2014.
Judd is a passionate advocate for President Barack Obama who garnered only 38 percent of Kentucky's popular vote in the 2012 election.
In a speech to Tennessee Democrats, Judd complained that the Democratic Party was not liberal enough.

Ashpit appears to be one of them.
What a piece of work. Up until recently, I hadn’t heard much political rhetoric out of her. That’s all changed, now. If I’m not mistaken her mother and sister are relatively conservative. She apparently ate of the forbidden fruit at a young age.
She’s a talentless twit.
If Kentucky votes in a female Al Franken, I’m leaving for the Caribbean.
Ashley Judd’s story... (this is devastating)
I think she got caught telling the truth and THAT WAS devastating
She COULD have adopted one or two of them. Taken them out of impoverishment and helped raise the next generation of Americans.
Ashely is one spoiled rotten, out of touch, hollytard.
Pretty face, though.
She is stupid.. Fits right in with the lib training.
The people of Kentucky won't vote her in but the Dem Machine will...if she runs.
Just like Franken.
Is she really said these things then she is a barking moonbat indeed!
I wonder if Judd’s nin-com-poop ideas were reason for the split this year between her and husband Dario Franchitti??
Being a libtard is like being high on drugs all the time. It ruins one's judgment and perception of reality and leads to destruction.
Understand your post (maybe) but this is the same state that voted in Rand Paul a couple years ago, right? Has it gone downhill that fast?
Probably has something to do with the fact that neither she nor Wynona really know who their daddies are.
My dentist here in Indy (well connected with a lot of racing folks) said she is just an annoying b!tch, LOL.
Ha! Wynona's a spaced out lezbo and Naomi is as liberal as they come...and every bit as phony and stupid as that politcal label might imply.
