Subject: GOP Spokesman Urges Supporters To “Hurl Some Acid At Those Female Democratic Senators!”
Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth’s campaign spokesman Jay Townsend has launched a vicious online attack against feminist politicians, mocking them as “Lily Ledbetter hypocrites” and arguing that the War on Women is a myth.
But it was his sign-off that horrified so many readers and outraged so many constituents: his call to “hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators!”
Acid attacks are one of the most common and horrific gender-based crimes in the world, an excruciating and disfiguring form of “revenge” used to punish women who disobey. That Jay Townsend would use this example of female torture to mock those fighting the War on Women is not just unprofessional—it’s horrific!
We need to get this man out of Hayworth’s office. This isn’t some right wing blogger or anonymous supporter. It’s a congresswoman’s right-hand man—and if enough of us threaten to oppose her re-election, she’ll have to listen. Take a stand: Sign our petition to take down Townsend NOW!
REP. NAN HAYWORTH: Jay Townsend speaks for you—and you don’t repudiate his call to “hurl some acid” on our female representatives, we’ll assume you condone his vicious attack. Release a statement condemning your spokesman’s words and removing him from his position immediately—or count on losing our vote this fall!
