Jay Townsend, the official campaign spokesman for GOP representative, Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.) put US politics right in the hands of the Taliban or Lords Resistance Army.
"My question today... when is Tommy boy going to weigh in on all the Lilly Ledbetter hypocrites who claim to be fighting the War on Women? Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector."
Townsend is not some junior GOP spokesman from the middle of nowhere. He was the Republicant candidate against Charles E. Schumer in 2010, whose debate style was nothing but disgraceful ad-hominem attacks. He runs a training course helping Republicans run for public office.
Dr. Richard Becker's campaign spokesman Barry Caro questioned provocative and shocking comments made by Rep. Nan Hayworth's official campaign spokesman in response to criticism of the Congressman. In particular, Caro highlighted Hayworth spokesman Jay Townsend's suggestion that Republicans "hurl some acid at" female Democratic Senators he and his disagreed with and belief that "bin Laden is dead in spite of Obama."Akin was not a one off. This is today's Republican Party.As Townsend is training their candidates this is the GOP of tomorrow as well.
"I'd be fired - immediately and with cause - if I said stuff like this. Which begs the question: why is Jay Townsend still Nan Hayworth's spokesman," asked Becker campaign spokesman Barry Caro. "Does she agree that 'bin Laden is dead in spite of Obama?' Does she agree that we should 'hurl some acid' at politicians her campaign disagrees with? These comments are simply unprofessional and should never cross the lips of a Congressional spokesman."
Sean Maloney is the Democratic candidate running against Nan Hayworth
