ICYMI: Support Grows for Letter Calling on VTGOP to Denounce Recent Statements Defending Trump’s 2005 Comments
October 18, 2016
Burlington, VT Over the weekend, more than 35 Vermont women signed onto a letter calling on the Vermont Republican Party and its candidates to denounce the comments made by Representative Savage and Addison County Chair Jon Christiano in defense of Donald Trump. Since making the letter public, over 130 leaders have signed on in support. So far, there has been no reaction from the Vermont Republican Party or its candidates, either statewide or local.
Both Representative Savage’s and Christiano’s comments that dismiss Trump’s remarks about groping women as just boys being boys are completely unacceptable. Donald Trump’s remarks described sexual assault and cannot be brushed aside.
We reiterate our call for the VTGOP and its candidates to denounce these comments and show Vermonters that they stand with women and girls, and reject people who think such actions are acceptable.

Paid for by the Vermont Democratic Party and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
