Woman Unseats GOP Lawmaker Who Made Sexist Joke About Women's March

A New Jersey politician who shared a meme on Facebook during January's Women's March in Washington asking whether the protest would be "over in time for them to cook dinner" has been forced to eat his words.

In the fraught days surrounding Trump's inauguration, this turned out to be an epically failed attempt at "reading the room", as they say. One woman held a box of macaroni and cheese and instructions for Carman to make his own dinner.

PBS reports Carman said the meme was a "bad choice" but that the women in his life were "strong and confident" enough to not be offended by his joke. The protesters ultimately walked out en masse.

His older brother, Sebastian, 5, wondered if they could use a rocket ship to bring Elijah back from heaven. It was the boy's first week at the school on Lenox Avenue.

Bennett, a psychiatric emergency screener, attended the meeting but walked out when she heard Carman's response. But when a local politician made a sexist joke, she chose to try to unseat him.

The seat Bennett won is in a Republican district, and she still managed to win by over 1,000 votes out of 14,000 votes cast. "I am beyond speechless and incredibly grateful to serve my community", she told Inquirer reporter Amy S. Rosenberg.

Ashley Bennett had never run for office before.

Democrat Ashley Bennett will now take Carman's seat on the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders, a nine-member governing body that oversees politics in the South Jersey county. Fed up by what she heard at the meeting with Carman, she chose to run for office herself.

This isn't the first time that Carman has made headlines for controversial behavior; in October, he was criticized for sporting a motorcycle jacket with a patch that had a Confederate flag on it. "For all the people who felt their voice wasn't heard, I said 'I'll run and I will be your voice'".
