THE PRESS ISN’T ALL EXERCISED ABOUT SEXISM HERE, BECAUSE SHE’S A REPUBLICAN AND REPUBLICAN WOMEN ARE FAIR GAME: Can a single woman enter politics without her dating life being invaded?

In a letter to the Watertown Daily Times, Michael Flynn asks Republican New York congressional candidate Elise Stefanik whether she has “a private relationship” with anyone.

Flynn, who writes that he is a supporter of Stefanik’s Democratic opponent in the 21st Congressional district, Aaron Woolf, argues that candidates should disclose all personal relationships for the voters.

“I don’t think this falls under the heading of prying eyes; it’s an indicator of what you are about as a person and candidate for congressional office,” Flynn wrote.

Flynn chastises Watertown Mayor Jeff Graham for defending Stefanik and seeking to make her personal life a campaign issue. And by “make this a campaign issue,” Flynn means that the mayor is calling the request absurd.

They’d be talking about this on the Sunday shows if the parties were reversed.
