Oregon governor candidate Pierce booed for sexual assault remarks at debate

PORTLAND — The Republican candidate for Oregon governor drew boos at a Portland debate when he suggested that successful women aren’t as susceptible to sexual violence.

Dr. Bud Pierce’s remarks came Friday after his Democratic opponent Gov. Kate Brown disclosed that she has been a victim of domestic violence, Oregon Public Broadcasting reported.

“A woman that has a great education and training and a great job is not susceptible to this kind of abuse by men, women or anyone,” Pierce said.

The line drew groans and boos from the audience at the Portland City Club, KGW-TV reported (https://goo.gl/bU9X7e).
