House Democratic Leader Christine Greig on Sen. Pete Lucido Sexist Comments

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

“Sen. Lucido purposefully generates this kind of controversy because it makes him feel important, and helps stave off his waning relevancy in a society where women and people of color are breaking down barriers and claiming their rightful seat at the table. Humiliating women who represent a threat to you is a cliché tactic to avoid responsibility for immaturity. Ms. Donahue’s courage to both call him out and write her piece on the experience are a testament to the changing times, and a reminder that those who are incapable of growing up and admitting their flaws will be left behind.”
