You won’t believe who it is.
According to Breitbart News, Rep. Karen Bass attacked Rep. Ted Yoho and demanded that he must apologize after a recent confrontation with Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.
Bass said, “Well, I have never seen or heard of anything like that before. I’m so disappointed in Representative Yoho. I work with him, we’re on the Foreign Affairs Committee together. I’m glad you’re raising it because just 15 minutes ago I spoke to Alexandria and I told her that I heard what had happened, that I thought it was completely unacceptable and I think we need to do something about it. After I spoke to her, I spoke to Brenda Lawrence, who is chair of the Women’s Caucus. I said, we need to come together because, as far as I was concerned, it was a verbal assault.”
She added, “Something like that should never happen. I do understand he’s not running for reelection, but he cannot get away with behavior like that. She told me a few minutes ago that that wasn’t the first time, he’s done this now a couple of times. Right after the first blow-up, a few hours later, he did it again. And so we just can’t have this. I know we’re going to be putting our heads together and figuring out how we will respond, but there will be a response.” You can watch a clip of Bass’ remarks here.
