New York, NY – US Senate candidate Chele Farley (R, C, Reform) released the following statement today in reaction to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s comments on CBS’ Face the Nation:
“Results matter, and when it comes to Kirsten Gillibrand, they are few and far between. Crying sexism because President Trump assailed her failed record as a Senator, the exact same claims I have made throughout this campaign, is an insult to women who have endured real abuse. The fact is that it took almost 12 years for Gillibrand to pass one bill: the renaming of a post office. That is her record.
"Kirsten Gillibrand has been hiding behind her gender for years, crying sexism and harassment when it’s convenient and cozying up to abusers and harassers when it suited her ambition to run for President. Senator Gillibrand’s cocktail of inane and profane rhetoric, spineless pandering and a complete absence of commitment to New Yorkers is truly a disgrace.
"As a woman who has been educated and worked in male-dominated fields such as engineering and finance, I know sexism when I see it. Cheapening real discrimination to avoid answering a valid criticism is a disservice to those who have fought and sacrificed to provide all Americans with equality of opportunity. Stop whining, Senator, and do your job.”
