Ted Yoho resigns from board of Christian organization after clash with AOC

Ted Yoho resigns from board of Christian organization after clash with AOC

 

Rep. Ted Yoho has resigned from the board of a Christian organization dedicated to ending hunger around the world following his confrontation with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

 

Unsettled by claims that the Florida Republican accosted the Democratic freshman lawmaker, including calling her a "f---ing **bleep**," language which Yoho denies using against her, Bread for the World said it met with the congressman on Friday and accepted his resignation.

 

In a statement, Bread for the World said it sought Yoho's resignation "as an action that reaffirms our commitment to coming alongside women and people of color, nationally and globally, as they continue to lead us to a more racially inclusive and equitable world." The organization thanked him for his commitment "to expanding opportunity for men, women, and children around the world," according to the Associated Press.

 

Ocasio-Cortez gave an impassioned speech on the House floor on Thursday about the prevalence of sexism in Congress following her confrontation with Yoho on the steps of the U.S. Capitol on Monday.

 

Yoho spoke on the House floor on Wednesday, apologizing for how the incident has been "misunderstood" by the press, after which Ocasio-Cortez said his remarks did not qualify as an apology because he did not "accept responsibility."

AOC - another easy win;

 

GOP Pinheads (Yoyo) another embarrassing loss.

So what will tRump supporters have to say? This man is vile and tRump supporters seem to gravitate to that, after all, they support tRump. In fact, they have already come out in defense of Yoho, now I guess they'll say he is being set up.  Can't wait to hear from them. LOL !

Justice served at record speed.  He is not running for Congress again either.  Good news all the way around.

I have never been a fan of AOC  but as a woman she doesn't deserve that kind of treatment from not only another Representative but also a man. Good for her
