Every time I think the Republicans in the legislature can’t possibly think of anything new to do to outrage us, they manage to come up with something. In today’s version of Planet O’Brien, John Distaso reports in the UL online that Rep. John Hikel, R-Goffstown, candidate for the state senate, repeatedly and loudly called Pamela Manney, former GOP vice chair, a “pole dancer” at a local Republican picnic.
“I’m just totally mortified,” Manney told the Granite Status. “I was never a pole dancer or a stripper. And he said it two more times and the more he said it, the more he advanced toward me.
“I thought we were friends,” Manney said of Hikel. She said she worked on behalf of Hikel’s campaigns for the House in the past but is supporting Greazzo in the current Senate primary.
I don’t think I can add anything to this, other than: seriously? He called her a pole dancer? Are you kidding me? And they say there isn’t a war on women?
