GOP Congressional Spokesman Townsend on Facebook, “Let’s hurl some acid at those female Democratic Senators”
Soooo… how do you deal with female political Democratic opponents? Just hurl some acid at them. No, this is NOT taken out of context. Jay Townsend, who is the spokesman for Rep. Nan Hayworth’s (R-NY) re-election campaign, posted on facebook:
“Listen to Tom. What a little bee he has in his bonnet. Buzz. Buzz. My questions 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.”
Now, in the heated race this year as our parties have grown to be even more hateful of one another than ever before, there are some horrid statements being made. Some in jest, some serious. I am sure that Townsend had no intention of being serious with his “acid hurling” idea – but some things are just not funny!
Jay, why don’t you go and have a chat with these women who have had acid thrown in their faces. I’m hope you will then understand how horrifically uncouth your statement was.
A very serious apology needs to be made here.
Petition to fire Jay Townsend

Thanks for the link. I responded immediately. The comment is shocking enough on its own, but juxtaposed with those photos brings tears …
That was a completely thoughtless thing he said.
Louise Duddy a Beautiful girl we grew up with, was the first person I knew this to happened to. The man will definately attract the right sort of attention now and I don’t think it’ll be political. How is he still in a job? I can’t believe it needs a petition. What’s wrong with this World.
You know if he was some everyday citizen and tweeted that… his house would have been surrounded and he’d be locked up by now.
Good point. This kind of language from our “representatives” needs to stop. Metaphor is one thing, but face it, the guy isn’t really the metaphor type.
Metaphor or not. Very bad taste and he should have never said anything every remotely closet to this or any act of violence of any kind.
Absolutely. And that’s what I mean, he’s not the subtle metaphor type, though I am sure that is what his defense is–“it was figurative langauge!” There are too many of his crude followers who will no doubt take joy in the thought of it being literal.
ok here is where i Vent!!! I signed asap. this is just Fracking So Wrong!! I do not FB or anything else Michelle if I could raise my voice above the roof tops: What In the EFF is wrong with ???PLEASE STOP HURTING OTHERS You are only causing pain to your selves to your children to darn I ran out of words…NO MORE ANYMORE tears and over whemling anger stop me from takeing over the world (damn I am still mad angry and 100% upset)
Thanks Michelle for sending the link; I signed the petition immediately. There is something cruel and dare I say evil about this crop of politicians.
Yes there is. A malevolent presence as you have stated.

This is the racist sexist government we have elected to represent America.
I got a better idea, throwing this asshole in jail. That way, maybe he can learn the hard way what it means to be on bottom!
these are insane people who have lost any shred of humanity they may have ever possessed. this guy should be skinned alive. continue…
Agreed. It’s like V has said before, there is a malevolent presence this year I’ve not felt before.

What an A**HOLE!
Bad, bad, bad! Don’t people realize the power of their words when there are mindless idiots out there to follow them and take their words to heart? Horrible.
Nothing more I can add to all the comments but to SMH!
