And Yoho is a fucking liar…

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks are worth a listen. As a woman, I am tired of men getting away with the kind of verbal abuse that Yoho is guilty of. I am thankful he will no longer represent me after November. What an absolute asshole.

From MSN:

“Rep. Yoho decided to come to the floor of the House of Representatives and make excuses for his behavior,” she said. “And that I could not let go. I could not allow my nieces, I could not allow the little girls that I go home to, I could not allow victims of verbal abuse and worse to see that.”

“Having a daughter does not make a man decent,” she said. 

Ocasio-Cortez also criticized members of the Republican Party for speaking to her “disrespectfully,” in the past, and said that Rep. Roger Williams walking “shoulder to shoulder” with Rep. Yoho before Yoho accosted her was part of a larger “cultural” problem. 

“This issue is… (about) a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting of violence and violent language against women, and an entire structure of power that supports that,” she said. 

Misogyny. I’m tired of it. You should be, too. Stop voting these bastards into office.

Ciao.
