Perry won't apologize for his consultant’s remark that Hutchison is making GOP into a ‘whorehouse'
On Saturday, the Dallas Morning News published an article about the battle between Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Gov. Rick Perry for the Republican spot in the Texas gubernatorial election. In the article, a political consultant to Perry said that Hutchison is making the GOP into a “whorehouse“:

Hutchison supports embryonic stem cell research and abortion rights, though she backs restrictions on abortion such as a ban on federal funding for organizations that perform abortion and a ban on late-term procedures.

Perry political consultant Dave Carney said the Republican governor agrees the party should welcome new voters.

“But that doesn’t mean you take your principles and throw them out the door and become a whorehouse and let anybody in who wants to come in, regardless,” Carney said.

A group of GOP women are now calling on Perry to apologize for Carney’s remark, saying that it is “disheartening when we see people resort to behavior aimed at belittling women.” Perry’s spokesperson simply replied to the Houston Chronicle that Carney “does not speak for the Governor.”

This type of thing got Clayton Williams in a lot of trouble when he ran against Ann Richards. Williams wouldn't shake her hand, and people got pissed because he was disrespectful. Perry better watch out.

3. Perry aide:
Edited on Wed May-20-09 01:26 PM by Hepburn
"Dave Carney, a national political consultant and former White House political director, was commenting on a story concerning the state of the national Republican Party," said the Perry aide, Mark Miner. "He was not commenting on the 2010 Texas governor's race and does not speak for the governor."

Really, that guy's such a narcissist.
