This guy and his team are a real piece of work. He resigned in disgrace over campaign finance violations and other misdeeds, and his staffers are apparently a bunch of transphobic haters. I don’t know what’s most idiotic – their transphobic comments, or the fact that they are snarking on one of their own Party!
From the article:
Seth Crossley and Renae Cowley, staffers in Swallow’s 2012 reelection campaign, exchanged several of emails using transphobic terms to describe a transgender woman who was a delegate to the Utah Republican Convention…
“77 graced us with their presence yesterday,” Crossley wrote, referring to the number of delegates who had attended a campaign event in the weeks leading up to the convention. “Including the infamous cross dresser!”
Cowley responded to Crossley’s email by demanding a photograph of the delegate. “I’m still waiting for a picture of the tranny!” wrote Cowley.
“I offered a picture of that thing while it was next to me!” replied Crossley. “You declined.”
“No, I didn’t,” Cowley responded. “I just said not an ‘up the skirt shot.'”
This is what these people think of us.
