Florida Democratic Party Statement on Offensive Remarks by Florida GOP
Tallahassee – In a press release today, the Republican Party of Florida attacked Congresswoman and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz's intelligence by refering to her as a "dunce." This follows on the heels of their repeated attacks on FDP Chair Allison Tant for "ranting" when she expresses political opinions.
"What exactly is the Republican Party of Florida's problem with female politicians? From 'Debbie Dunce' to 'Tant Rant,' Lenny Curry and the RPOF has repeatedly attacked women in language that they would never use for a man," said FDP Chair Allison Tant. "This is mudslinging of the lowest order. Attempting to discredit female leaders by referring to them as 'ranting' or attacking their intelligence is offensive at best and sexist at worst. When the Florida GOP keeps resorting to juvenile and sexist name calling, it's hard to take their outreach to women seriously."
