Huffington Post reports:
A Republican congressman on the House Committee on Financial Services thinks Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), one of the most vocal advocates for Wall Street reform, needs to be “neutered.” Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) made the comments during a panel discussion at an American Bankers Association conference Wednesday.
According to HuffPost, Warren emailed supporters:
“Why would he go out of his way to say something so sexist and offensive? Is he hostile to all women? Clueless? Afraid? And then I had a second thought: This is all about money,” she wrote. “Trying to land the best zinger with my name is just one more way to earn chits and try to cash in big time with that audience.”
With Hillary Clinton as the Democratic front-runner, we’ve become accustomed to blatantly sexist language in the public sphere.
It’s always disgusting.
