Repug Women Don't Know What Sexism Means

Or they do, but are happy to lie to protect the cowardly guv hiding behind the curtains. A Democratic official stated facts about a female repub offical, therefore sexism. Because reasons. 

After Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear suggested Senate President Robert Stivers faces political pressure because his wife, Regina, works for Gov. Matt Bevin's administration, a few prominent Republican women have criticized his comments as sexist.

"Women have been standing on their own merit in the workplace for decades. We earned our spots in the Bevin admin," Republican Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton said Thursday on Twitter.

Regina Stivers earns $118,000 a year as deputy secretary of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet.
On Wednesday — just before Beshear announced that he plans to sue companies for illegally marketing and selling opioids in Kentucky — her husband, a Republican, publicly questioned whether Beshear has a conflict of interest in a similar case against the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma, which the state settled for $24 million right before he became attorney general.

In response, Beshear criticized the Senate president for politicizing a drug crisis that has devastated thousands of Kentuckians.

"I know that that $100,000 job that the governor has provided to your spouse, who he could let go at any time, creates pressure," Beshear said, directing his comments at Stivers during a Wednesday afternoon press conference. "But this is far too important."
Either Regina Stivers is  a strong professional woman doing her job, or she's a melting snowflake who must be coddled and protected from the heat of professional politics.

Make up your damn minds, ladies - and that's not a compliment.
