As his Twitter bio tells us, Steven Kush (
@snkush) is “Executive Director Republican Party of Bernalillo County, Albuquerque, NM.” He has 53 followers. To put that into perspective, I have about 28,000 and I’m not executive director of anything.
Per HuffPo, he posted the above tweet Tuesday night after that 19-year-old “Working America chick” testified in favor of raising the minimum wage before the county commission. Working America is a labor movement advocacy group.
It gets worse. Here’s what’s on his Facebook Page:
Kush thought that line was so clever, he made sure to post it on Facebook and Twitter! He also referred to Democrats as “the gestapo” in another tweet.
He must be trying to reach out, as the GOP has promised they would. How’s that workin’ for ya so far, Steve?
Pat Davis, executive director of ProgressNow New Mexico, a progressive advocacy organization, picks right up on that Republican makeover thing:
“If the Republican Party wants to know why they have such a hard time connecting with young women, they should start by examining the very public way their leaders feel about young working women.”
Bob Cornelius, the county Republican party’s former executive director, replied to Kush’s “nice boots” remark Tuesday by insinuating that Evans is a prostitute. “Maybe she uses those shoes to walk Central,” he wrote under Kush’s post, referring to a street that is notorious for prostitution. “Even in this economy she can exchange bumper cables for boots.”
Republican War on Women? Nahhh.
They might want to take an anti-bullying course, while they’re at it.
