Now Ann Romney Is Weighing In On Vince Sheheen’s “Whore-gate”

WIFE OF FORMER GOP NOMINEE BLASTS CANDIDATE, MEDIA … 

By FITSNEWS ||  Ann Romney – wife of former “Republican” presidential nominee Mitt Romney – is furious with South Carolina Democratic gubernatorial nominee Vincent Sheheen for calling his GOP rival Nikki Haley a “whore.”

She’s also livid the media and left-leaning feminist groups are giving him a pass on the scandal …

“When I first heard about it, it hit me right in my gut,” Romney told CNN of Sheheen’s recent gaffe. “My nerve endings went haywire. It’s so upsetting when you know someone can say something like that about a woman, and not have any kind of reaction. It’s so unacceptable. Nikki is a great girl and has been a great governor.”

Well … that last point is debatable, but there’s no debating the inefficacy of Sheheen’s gaffe (which initially went unreported by the state’s mainstream media).

His comment may be accurate, but still …

“We’re going to win this race because we want it more,” Sheheen said at a Democratic rally last week. “We want it more and all we have to do is remind the people of South Carolina about the junk that has gone on the last four years. Remind them that we have a governor who has vetoed over $100 million in public education funding.  She vetoed our public school teacher’s pay raises the same year she gave her own staff 25 percent pay increases.”

Really?  Last time we checked Haley was every bit as enslaved to South Carolina’s failed government run education system as Sheheen.  Also, last year she vetoed less than one-tenth of one percent of the state budget.

Anyway …

“That is the worst kind of politics,” Sheheen continued. “And we are gonna escort whore out the door.”

Here’s the clip courtesy of The (Florence, S.C.) Morning News, which covered the event but did not mention Sheheen’s gaffe …

Whoa …

Sheheen quickly caught his slip, and restated “escort her out the door.”

Of course both the candidate and his audience proceeded to laugh heartily over the comment for several moments after the fact … with one member of the crowd thanking Sheheen for telling the truth about Haley, who has been accused of having multiple affairs.

“You gotta tell the truth!” he responded.

VINCENT SHEHEEN

Mainstream media covered the event, but did not address Sheheen’s remark.  In fact this website was the first media outlet in the state to draw attention to it.

This week Sheheen addressed the controversy … poorly.

“Sometimes when you’re speaking five to ten times a day, your words get a little bit garbled,” Sheheen told Charleston, S.C. radio host Bryan Crabtree. “Uh. When they get garbled, and it does happen to me – I go back and say exactly what I meant, and you heard in that clip that I meant ‘her’ – h.e.r.”

“I can promise you I don’t use that word, the word that you people are claiming that I used,” Sheheen continued. “I don’t use it in private, I don’t use it in public — but if anybody heard wrong, and certainly my words were garbled, then you know I apologize. Because I don’t want to send that message to anybody.”

Typical politician …

Ann Romney – whose husband received Haley’s, um, “endorsement” in 2012 – also blasted the media and liberal feminist groups for their silence.

“You get so sick of saying there is bias out there, but if a Republican had said this, it would be blowing up in their face like nobody’s business. Where is EMILY’s List? Where is N.O.W.? Where are they?” she told CNN.

That’s true …

Did someone allegedly call women whores? Certainly, calling all women whores should be offensive to women. However, certain women are in fact whores. It is not offensive to all women to call a whore a whore anymore than it should be offensive to all men when a woman call’s a wife beater, a wife beater. So what is your point?

So the Haley camp only wants to talk about this and not Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. I mean her record is so awesome why are they talking about this? Oh, nevermind—

But like they need this to win? If there was a national type scrutiny on this state and the press and shows like hardball or Hanity here in SC this would be all over the “news” but so would her DSS failures, her “i did not veto teacher pay” “we did veto teacher pay” flub as well.

Interesting about the left leaning feminist groups giving Shitheen a pass. Feminism has never been about women. It’s all about politics. A Republican can get raked over the coals for nothing and a Dim can get away with murder—see Ted Kennedy, literally. WOW. That is what is known as journalism.

A whore is a whore, of course of course,
and no one can talk about whore of course,
that is of course, unless the whore,
Is the infamous Mrs. Haley!

Go right to the source and ask the whore.
she’ll give you a “position” that you’ll endorse.
she’s lately been on a shaky course.
Talk to Mrs. Haley.

Sheheen yak-it-ti-yak a streak
and waste your time of day,
but Mrs. Haley will never speak,
unless she has something to lay…

A whore is a whore, of course of course,
And this one will talk ’til her voice is hoarse.
You never heard of a talking whore?
Well, listen to this…

I am Mrs. Haley

This is about actions, not words.
Specifically, Sheheen’s actions after his gaffe, where he basically made light
of it, and the actions of feminist groups and the media who make nothing of an
incident like this when a Democrat is the culprit but would be employing a scorched-earth
policy if a Republican was the person whose words – and actions – were at
issue. It’s about hypocrisy, dishonesty, and character. Haley has little of
these traits, mind you, but the left is no more entitled a high ground than
Haley.

Steven A. Smith October 28, 2014 at 12:30 pm

For him to say he was misunderstood, or it was a gaffe, is just untrue. He said it, he meant it, and if he simply apologized and said he should not have said it that would be one thing, but this is politics at its worst and the women of SC should call him out and vote against him on Tuesday. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue and actually it is not even a sexist issue, it is an Integrity Issue on Sheheen’s part.
