Chris Coons: Gawker’s Article is ‘Despicable’ and ‘Cowardly’
Christine O’Donnell’s Democratic opponent Chris Coons has issued a statement on Gawker’s sleazy smear piece: Chris Coons camp: Gawker post about Christine O’Donnell ‘cowardly’.
“The Gawker item is despicable, cowardly and has absolutely no value at all to any Delaware voters,” Coons spokesman Daniel McElhatton told POLITICO. “We denounce it with great vigor.”
The comment comes in response to the gossip website’s post Thursday in which an anonymous man claims to have had a one-night stand with O’Donnell three years ago on Halloween. The post includes numerous embarrassing claims about O’Donnell, as well as pictures of her dressed like a lady bug.
O’Donnell spokesman Doug Sachtleben responded to the item with a post on Facebook calling it “sexism and slander.”
The National Organization for Women also denounced the post as “public sexual harassment.”
