Speaking in Charlotte, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elaine Marshall called for the ouster of former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson as co-chair of the president’s deficit reduction commission.
In an e-mail to a female critic, Simpson said Social Security has become “like a milk cow with 310 million t*ts! Call when you get honest work!”
“His remarks were disrespectful to women, they were disrespectful to Social Security recipients,” Marshall told a luncheon of Uptown Democrats on Women’s Equality Day, reports Jim Morrill of the Charlotte Observer. “He should resign immediately.”
Simpson, who co-chairs the commission with UNC President Erskine Bowles, has since apologized.
Marshall reserved most of her remarks for her race, which she called “absolutely, unequivocally winnable.”
