Yesterday, the Sun Sentinel revealed deeply disturbing comments from old Facebook posts where Congressman Brian Mast and his Campaign Manager Rocco LeDonni “joked” about rape, murder, and having sex with 15-year-old girls.
These comments included Mast saying “im so proud of you…i hope you hook up with at least fifteen 15 year olds over there…its legel there right.”
Mast also replied to a post LeDonni made about picking up women and said, “how about don’t turn this rape into a murder.
Statement from Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo:
“Congressman Mast’s comments clearly indicate that he is grossly unfit to represent South Florida. Republican Party of Florida Chairman Joe Gruters must immediately denounce Congressman Mast’s violent comments about underage girls. Further, the Republican Party must act swiftly and wholeheartedly to condemn these comments by taking immediate action against the Congressman. We can not allow this type of behavior from those who represent us. I can’t believe I have to say this, but promoting rape and sexual violence, especially against children is abhorrent and those who do it are not fit for office.
