Senate Dem charges (female) opponent with sexism — Washington Examiner
Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., in stumping for her own reelection and the Paycheck Fairness Act pending today, portrayed her Republican opponents as sexist based on their opposition to the legislation.
McCaskill argued that a vote against the Paycheck Fairness Act contributes to gender discrimination in corporations and prevents women from receiving promotions that they deserve. “All three of my opponents are pretty extreme,” McCaskill said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe while noting that the Republicans (in the midst of their primary campaign) oppose the bill. “Corporate governance is a huge issue here, too. We don’t have women on these corporate boards . . . It’s very hard to break through when you have attitudes of elected officials that equal pay for equal work is something that they can’t bother with.” She then added that it was “outrageous” that “these Republicans, and the ones I’m running against” can’t even support equal pay for women.
McCaskill never acknowledged that one of her opponents is a woman, or that an opponent might have a reason for opposing the bill beyond mere sexism.
