Jay Townsend, a campaign spokesman for Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth, made an aggressive comment in a Facebook discussion that originally was critical of Hayworth on the issue of gas prices. Townsend drew strong criticism from one of Hayworth’s Democratic challengers.
The comment was on the Facebook page called “NY19 U.S. House of Representatives Discussion Center” — and it’s “mission is to foster civil multi-partisan discussion about issues impacting citizens of New York’s U.S. House District represented by Republican Congresswoman Nan Hayworth.” The post in question criticized Hayworth for not crediting Obama for a recent drop in gas prices.
Jay Townsend’s comment, in response to another commenter, Tom, read: "Listen to Tom. What a little bee he has in his bonnet. Buzz Buzz. 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."
