Demand Allen West Apologize for his Sexist Attack on Debbie Wasserman Schultz
If you had any doubt about the War on Women Republicans in Congress are waging, wait until you hear about Congressman Allen West's threatening, sexist, and demeaning attack on DNC Chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
His email speaks for itself:
"Look, Debbie . . . let me make myself perfectly clear . . . you are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. . . You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!"
Enough is enough! We can't sit by and watch such an appalling action from one of our elected officials.
Make no mistake -- the GOP is dead set on pushing their anti-woman agenda, and we've seen it clear as day in West's attack on Debbie. Debbie is many things -- a devoted advocate for families in Florida, an elected official, a mother and wife, and a leader in the Democratic Party. We need to stand behind her right now and demand Allen West apologize to Debbie and to the American people.
Speak out today and tell Allen West that his comments are unacceptable. Tell him you stand with Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz and demand he apologize.
I’m standing with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz against your unacceptable attack.
Do the professional and appropriate thing and apologize to her immediately.
