FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Corning, NY- The Reed campaign calls out John Plumb for doubling down on sexist attacks on the Reed family. "John Plumb has continued his unfair attacks, but this time he is targeting women in business and Tom's family," stated Amy Hasenberg, Tom Reed for Congress Spokeswoman. John Plumb is so desperate to gain political points that he is attacking Mrs. Reed's business.
"Plumb’s words could only be viewed as sexist since the undertones were that Mrs. Reed cannot generate her own source of income to provide for her family," continued Hasenberg. "This is completely untrue and it is unfair to all women. John Plumb is using sexist attacks for purely political purposes--he doesn't care who he offends as long as he gains political capital."
"Tom is standing up for all women and all groups who are being unfairly marginalized by these offensive views,” continued Hasenberg.
"As the owner of the Parkview Restaurant, I know how hard it is to run a business. It makes me very proud to see Tom Reed standing up for women in business," stated Beth Johnson, owner of Owego's Parkview Restaurant.
“I am proud to see Tom Reed standing up for his wife and female business owners like me. He cares about businesses here in New York and he is standing up for us," said Cathy Crandall, Vice President of Crandall's Memorials (Olean, NY).
