Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL-3) clearly has an issue with women. Especially strong young women of color, like his colleague Rep. Alexandria Ocosio-Cortez (D-NY-14), known as AOC, who has paved the way for progressive values the past two years.
As AOC ascended the steps of the Capitol, Yoho blocked her, pointed his finger in her face, and raged that she was "disgusting," "crazy," "out of her freaking mind," and "dangerous." As she walked away, and in front of reporters, Yoho called her "a f*cking b*tch."
This misogyny must not stand unanswered.
Sign here to tell Congress to formally censure Rep. Yoho for his misogynistic attack on AOC.
Our current Congress has a historic high number of women...23.4%. Still less than a quarter. Men like Yoho clearly aren't used to sharing respectful space with women.
Yoho's "apology" was a denial of the incident, using his wife and daughters as a shield. AOC says she cannot teach young women to accept this type of behavior by accepting Yoho's lies. Sign if you agree – and tell Congress they shouldn't teach women to accept this either.
Add your name to tell Congress that Rep. Yoho deserves a formal censure for his repulsive abuse of AOC.
