Statement from DFL Chairman Ken Martin on Rep. Jason Lewis’s slut-shaming comments

Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin today released the following statement on Jason Lewis’s unearthed comments on his desire to use the term “sluts” when describing women:

“We now know why Rep. Jason Lewis refused to release his old radio archives.

“Not only is Jason Lewis unfit for office based on his comments, we also have a voting record that proves Lewis is doubling down on the worst aspects of his ideology. Through his unwavering support of policies that hurt women and families,  Jason Lewis has demonstrated that he is committed to everything but the people of CD 2.

“This November, voters are fired up to send a message to Lewis and the entire Republican party that their disgusting treatment of women will no longer be tolerated and that they’re ready for change.”
