Two days ago, a group of women who have dedicated themselves to making sure Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is defeated in the November midterm election formed a group under the banner of “Women Against Matt Gaetz.”
In 48 hours time, the group has grown to over 1,300 members and continues to expand as Gaetz’s recent comments regarding women and abortion are coming back to bite him right on his butt.
A new Facebook group called “Women Against Matt Gaetz” is gaining followers by the hundreds.
“It has gone from us just creating it to like 1,300 in two days,” Herring said. “By speaking up, we can organize together to vote him out. That’s the number one thing we want to see happen. And we also are going to be asking Congress to censure Matt Gaetz.”
As you may know, Gaetz spoke last week at a conservative youth conference (we all know how fond Matt allegedly is of young girls) and made insulting remarks about those who are in favor of abortion rights:
“Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb. These people are odious from the inside out. They’re like 5′2″, 350 pounds, and they’re like, ‘Give me my abortions or I’ll get up and march and protest.’
“A few of them need to get up and march — they need to get up and march for like an hour a day. Swing those arms, get the blood pumpin’, maybe mix in a salad.”
Kathy White, Okaloosa County Democratic Women’s Club president, said she’s also upset that Gaetz voted against a bill this week that would have helped combat human trafficking, the very same crime he’s suspected of having committed with multiple underage girls:
A spokesperson for Gaetz later released a statement which reads:
“Hundreds of women for Matt Gaetz showed up to rallies today in real life. Woke activists sharing hate online aren’t our focus. Matt Gaetz is pro-life and wouldn’t have it any other way.”
