Of­fi­cial’s tweet is ap­palling

The Calvert Recorder - - Community Forum - Beth M. Bub­ser, Dunkirk

This is in re­sponse to Calvert Com­mis­sion­ers’ Pres­i­dent Evan Slaugh­en­houpt’s (R) ugly tweet stat­ing, in part, “I as­saulted a young lady.”

After learn­ing of the tweet from my daugh­ter, who’s a se­nior in high school, I ex­plained Com­mis­sioner Slaugh­en­houpt is a pig; he should not boast about as­sault­ing a woman. He is un­fit for pub­lic of­fice.

I too am a Re­pub­li­can, I too sup­port Judge Ka­vanaugh. Sex­ual as­sault has noth­ing to do with party af­fil­i­a­tion.

How dare you, an elected of­fi­cial, boast about “as­sault­ing a young lady” in your youth — it’s in­com­pre­hen­si­ble. Your smug, cav­a­lier at­ti­tude and dis­re­spect for women is ev­i­dent in your tweet and con­stituents should be ap­palled and de­mand you step down.

Com­mis­sioner Slaugh­en­houpt, if you slapped a woman to­day on the but­tocks, you could be re­moved from pub­lic of­fice and fired from the pri­vate sec­tor.

So “get over it.”
