Endorsement “Kiss of Death” for Wasserman Schultz Challenger

Phyllis Schlafly

Karen Harrington, who may be the Republicans’ best chance of unseating Debbie Wasserman Shultz in November, may have lost a few fans with her recent endorsement from Phyllis Schlafly.

Reported by Javier Manjarres of the Shark Tank, Shlafly joins Congresswoman Michele Bachmann endorsing the Davie Resident.

In the mostly Democratic district, Shlafly’s endorsement could hurt Harrington who is running against four other Republicans and an independent in the August primary.

Shlafly is a conservative activist who is known for her opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment and modern feminism.

By getting married, the woman has consented to sex, and I don’t think you can call it rape. – Phyllis Schlafly in speech at Bate College in 2007.

Shlafly has all the things most women want in their lifetimes; to have a fulfilling career along with motherhood. Shlaflly is a lawyer, editor, regular speaker at rallies, political activist and a mother.  The problem is she denounces the very things that women worked so hard to achieve through equal rights.

Schlafly who graduated from Washington University with an undergraduate degree and a law degree said, ” Big Media, U.S. colleges and universities are the biggest enemies of the values of red-state Americans.”

Now 87, Schlafly is still involved in conservative politics and has a busy lecture schedule. She is the president of the pro-life, anti–gay marriage Eagle Forum, which has 85,000 members.

Harrington, whose family has owned and operated Rickey’s Restaurant and Lounge since 1974, hopefully will not have any customers offended by her acceptance of this endorsement by the anti-gay Shlafly.

Harrington may have had a chance to win the primary, but by affiliating herself with Shlafly as well as Michele Bachman, she has turned the clock back several years for the educated working women in Florida’s 20th District.

    It would help if you got your facts right. The eagle forum has 80k members, not 25k.

    • I stand corrected, as I used data from a 2009 interview with her. Nevertheless, not a very large group, is it.

        Way to show your bias Editor. I would have thought an Editor would at least know proper grammar. So smug…….can’t wait for November. Bye Bye DWS.

    Not so fast. The Republicans were so sure she would be gone in 2010 and she’s still here. Just face it we love Debbie and most of the people that don’t like her for some weird reason, don’t even live in our district. Debbie is good for Tamarac and Broward and she’s going to be reelected again. See you back on here in November where I’ll be the smug one!
