Misogynist GOPer backpedals from ‘Whore’ tweet
New Jersey Senate candidate Phil Mitsch is sorry for saying that women should be “a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom” — but he’s still not backing out of the race.
“I would like to sincerely apologize for any offense I may have caused anyone, particularly women, as a result of a Twitter post that has recently been reported,” Mitsch said.
Mitsch, a Republican in Camden County, has been getting slammed over the past few days for a September 2nd tweet that said: “Women, you increase your odds of keeping your men by being faithful, a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom.”
He initially refused to apologize, saying Thursday morning: “I am definitely not apologizing for those two tweets at all. They were relationship tips. ‘Stud in the bedroom’ and ‘whore in the bedroom,’ those are timeworn adages.”
