Republican Official Who Mocked Women’s March Defeated By Female Candidate He Inspired To Run




A Republican official in New Jersey who posted a meme mocking the Women’s March was defeated in an election last night by a female Democratic candidate who was inspired to run against him after seeing his remarks, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

First-time Democratic candidate Ashley Bennet defeated Republican John Carman Tuesday for the Atlantic County freeholder seat.

Carman posted a meme on the day of the Women’s March that featured a woman in a kitchen and included the message: “Will the women’s protest be over in time for them to cook dinner?”

“Just asking?” Carman wrote alongside the meme.



Carman, who attended President Trump’s inauguration in January, later apologized for posting the image.

The GOP official has also received criticism for wearing a patch with the Confederate flag.
