Letter: Democratic apology required
In the 2012 elections, Democrats attacked Republicans as anti-women. This is par for the course in most of our elections, though there is no truth to it.
Fast forward to today. Republican state Rep. Marilinda Garcia throws her hat in the ring to challenge Democratic Congresswoman Annie Kuster. Within minutes of her announcement, Democratic state Rep. Peter Sullivan hits the tweet circuit. He infers that adding former speaker of the house Bill O’Brien to Kim Kardashian equals Garcia. In another tweet, he says that Garcia is Al Baldasarro in stiletto heels.
Garcia is a rising star in the Republican Party and the Latino community. So many of us are proud of her, and her constituents keep sending her back to Concord to represent them. She must be doing something right!
The Democratic Party and Sullivan should issue an apology for these types of derogatory comments. Rather than attack her personally as an enemy, why don’t you do the right thing – treat her as a respected and honored opponent!
