Notice the origin of the sexist tweet was right wing Lawn Jockey Larry Elder…
How to Twit your way out of Congress! I do love it when Rethugly reprobates self immolate, removing themselves from the virtual political gene pool.
Nebraska State Sen. Bill Kintner stood before reporters on Wednesday morning and called himself a “fighter.”
Kintner, who had previously been involved in a cybersex scandal, this month drew criticism for an offensive retweet about the Women’s March, which appeared to joke about the issue of sexual assault. At the news conference, Kintner, a Republican, said that he had received emails, calls and text messages asking him to stay and continue his work in the state government.
“Well, as much as my heart says to fight, my head says it is time to step away from the legislature,” he said. “It is no secret to anyone who knows me that there have been many disappointing and frustrating times in my over-four years in the legislature.”
Then he continued: “I have concluded that it is wise to step down as a member of the Nebraska legislature.”
Kintner announced his resignation, stating that it would be effective Jan. 30.
“To paraphrase Richard Nixon, you won’t have Bill Kintner to kick around anymore,” he said toward the end of his comments…
The Associated Press reports that Kintner was previously fined $1,000 after admitting to “engaging in mutual masturbation in July 2015 with a woman using Skype, an online video-chatting service.” He used a state computer, according to AP.
More recently, Kintner drew criticism for a retweet to his Twitter timeline, according to reports. The World-Herald, which has posted an image of the retweet, reported that it showed three women who appeared to be carrying signs in a women’s march. The signs referenced a recorded 2005 conversation in which President Trump made inappropriate comments about women.
Above the picture, a person who posted the initial tweet wrote: “Ladies, I think you’re safe.”
