(WILMINGTON, Del.) -- Christine O'Donnell is adding onto the National Organization for Women's condemnation of a story that tabloid website Gawker published about a man's sexual encounter with the Republican Senate candidate three years ago.
O'Donnell's campaign released a statement Thursday, saying, "This story is just another example of the sexism and slander that female candidates are forced to deal with. From Secretary Clinton, to Governor Palin, to soon-to-be Governor Haley, Christine's political opponents have been willing to engage in appalling and baseless attacks -- all with the aim of distracting the press from covering the real issues in this race. Even the National Organization for Women gets it, but Christine’s opponent disturbingly does not."
NOW had previously condemned Gawker on Thursday, saying that “sexist, misogynist attacks against women have no place in the electoral process, regardless of a particular candidate’s political ideology.”
