“REPUBLICAN” SENATOR CONTINUES TO CATCH FLAK FOR SEXIST STATEMENTS
|| By FITSNEWS || More than a week after we first broke the story, the saga of S.C. Senator Thomas Corbin rolls on …
Last week, the Upstate “Republican” referred to his only female colleague in the State Senate as a “lesser cut of meat.” In fact the comment – a bastardized reference to the Biblical account of creation – was actually applied by Corbin to all women.
Naturally, the story went viral … nationwide.
Corbin later apologized for his sexist remark. Sort of. Shortly thereafter, he blamed the target of his “ribbing,” S.C. Senator Katrina Shealy – accusing her of getting upset and “making a big deal out of all this.”
Oh Lord …
Obviously Corbin has taken the worst of it on the national stage. And has given the Palmetto State yet another embarrassing black eye. But how is the drama unfolding in the “Man’s World” at the S.C. State House?
Take a look …

According to our sources, these flyers have been distributed all over the S.C. State House lobby this week – and in other buildings on the Palmetto State’s capital grounds.
Too funny …
As we’ve said all along, we’re not big on politically correct “teachable moments” here at FITS. But Corbin’s sexism seems intent on providing us one … even if he still doesn’t seem to “get it.”
