I noticed that in the Sept. 26 news story “Illegal immigration energizes GOP voter base,” Jenny Beth Martin (Tea Party Patriots Citizens spokeswoman) stated that, “Sen. Hagan’s vote is as phony as it is transparent,” and that Sadie Weiner, a spokeswoman for Sen Hagan’s team, said: “Kay has been clear that she doesn’t believe the president should take executive action on immigration because this is Congress’ responsibility.”
So why does Weiner refer to her boss as Kay and not Sen. Hagan?
With all those accusations of disrespect recently directed to Speaker Thom Tillis’ addressing Sen.Hagan as Kay during their debate, is it a reasonable question to ask why someone who is actually employed by Hagan would use a similar address and then be able to stand back and watch it fly under the radar? Was the first-name usage tempest against Tillis merely an attempt to create an uproar or was it perhaps an example of political double standards?
So where and is the outrage and all those accusations of disrespect at this recent use of Kay?
Never miss a local story.
