This week, Rep. Nan Hayworth's (R-NY) campaign participated in a Facebook discussion with her constituents. The Facebook page where the discussion took place is called "NY19 U.S. House of Representatives Discussion Center," and is a place for constituents to discuss issues and concerns they have about the district.
Rep. Hayworth's spokesman, Jay Townsend, responded to criticism from a constituent by writing, "When is Tommy boy going to weigh in on all the Lilly Ledbetter hypocrites who claim to be fighting the War on Women? Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector."
Hate speech aimed at women is wrong and Rep. Hayworth needs to make clear that it will not be tolerated by firing Townsend right away. Can you sign the petition?
