A real casualty in the war on women.
Annette Bosworth, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in South Dakota, held an adults only press conference on Tuesday due to the graphic matter that served as a backdrop.
According to the local NBC affiliate KDLT, the physician asked graffiti artists to paint her campaign signs with the same graphic names she said she has been called since entering the race, which she then displayed on the walls around her.
“What you see around you are the words which have been written about me on blogs, on the internet, throughout this campaign,” she told shocked attendees, KDLT reported.
A tearful Bosworth also spoke about her 10 year old son, and how this “filth” shows up “when he Google’s his mom’s name.”
“The Democrats talk about a war on women, but much of what you see here is written by the supposedly tolerant liberals, Bosworth said. “They are hateful, they are hurtful and no person should have to endure it.”
“It is its own form of abuse,” she added.
Bosworth said “misogyny is real,” and that “our country has a problem.”
As might be expected for a GOP candidate, the media had a short attention span with the misogyny theme, preferring instead to question Bosworth about recent problems around the validity of signatures on her nominating petitions, according to KDLT.
