Assemblyman Watts calls out sexist website backing City Council candidate

See the original Twitter thread here.

From the Nevada Current:

But other people who have had more than enough of Kihuen piled on via social media. Assemblyman Howard Watts was particularly eloquent, in an 11-tweet thread that doubles as a comprehensive indictment of both the website and Kihuen’s wimpy, barely plausible reaction to it.

From Buzzfeed News:

One member of the Nevada Assembly tweeted a lengthy thread about the website, calling it an “utterly disgusting victim-shaming website” and referring to the decision to name women who had not come forward as “new acts of harassment.”

“The site seems to identify accusers who have not gone public to date. Correct or not this is a violation of the privacy and agency of these women. They should decide if and when they wish to make their identities known, period,” tweeted Assembly member Howard Watts III.
