Debbie Wasserman Schultz should try to find a new phrase to describe how Republican governors are treating women, because her current one really isn’t working out well.
For the second time within the past month, footage of the DNC chairwoman has surfaced in which she accused a Republican governor of giving women “the back of his hand.”
Wasserman Schultz, who was widely condemned for making the thought-to-be initial comment referring to Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, made the exact same comment about Florida governor Rick Scott about a week prior to reports of her accusations toward Walker.
During a roundtable meeting in Wisconsin, Wasserman Schultz said that Walker “has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality.”
The DNC chairwoman made the comments about Scott on August 26th at a victory party for Charlie Crist, who had sewn up the Democratic nomination for governor in Florida earlier in the night.
“Making sure that we can help voters answer that really important question over the next 70 days: who has my back? When they ask themselves that question, they will consistently say Charlie Crist, the Democrats will have my back,” said the congresswoman in the video.
“Rick Scott has given us the back of his hand,” she stated.
The video was unearthed early Thursday by Republican Super PAC America Rising.
The DNC chairwoman came under fire last week after Politico reported that White House and DNC staffers are increasingly doubtful of the job Wasserman Schultz is doing in leading the party.
