In advance of Mike Bloomberg’s debate premiere tonight, the NJGOP is calling on Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill to break her silence and address the claims of misogyny against her endorsed Presidential candidate.
Outlets have reported a number of allegations against Bloomberg, including this one from CNN:
They include claims from the 1990s that prior to a male colleague’s wedding, Bloomberg told a group of female employees to “line up to give him a blow job as a wedding present”; that he would regularly direct comments like “look at that nice piece of ass” at women in the office; and that upon learning that a female employee was expecting a baby, he responded: “Kill it!”
Sherrill claims that President Donald J. Trump’s so-called “attacks on women” were her motivation to run, but she has been silent on allegations against Bloomberg and touted his “integrity” in her endorsement.
Morris County Republican Chairwoman Laura Ali released the following statement:
“Congresswoman Sherrill has had opportunity after opportunity to be a leader in her own Party, but each time she has passed. Whether it has been any of the host of toxic workplace scandals under Phil Murphy or her endorsement of potential misogynist Mike Bloomberg, I think the women of New Jersey know they can’t count on Mikie Sherrill to stand up for them. Good thing voters in NJ-11 have an opportunity to vote her out in November.”
