Female journalist told she needs male chaperone to cover politician's campaign

Source: Guardian

Mississippi Republican Robert Foster denied requests from Larrison Campbell to shadow campaign for governor ‘out of respect of my wife’

A Republican candidate for Mississippi governor has been accused of sexism after he banned a female political reporter from going on a campaign trip without a male chaperone for fear of being accused of an extramarital affair.

Earlier this week, Robert Foster’s campaign denied requests from Larrison Campbell, a reporter for Mississippi Today, to shadow him on the campaign trail ahead of next month’s primary election – unless she was accompanied by a male colleague.

His campaign told her they feared if somebody took pictures of him with Campbell, they could be used by rivals to smear him.

Campbell told the Guardian she was “shocked” when she was told Foster would not cooperate without a male colleague present because he had initially seemed interested when she approached him about reporting a story and they had an established working relationship.

Mississippi Gov. Republican candidate,
Robert Foster.



Affair? Wishful thinking, Foster.

expansive coverage of the troll's opponent would give me cause to celebrate.

President Obama, and many other politicians, have said, you can attack me, but leave my family out of this.

15. And the war on women continues . . .

excluding the reporter because of her gender is BS.

If he's clean, then he's got nothing to worry about.

But I don't like the way he's presenting this. As if somehow the female reporter is the problem.
