Republican Congressman Advises Women To Donate To Candidates who support them

A Republican Congressman has some interesting advice for women: if they plan to give money to a candidate this year, they should probably give it to a Democrat.

New York Representative Richard Hanna was quite candid as he spoke at a D.C. rally for the Equal Rights Amendment. “I think these are very precarious times for women, it seems,” reports Huffington Post. “So many of your rights are under assault. I’ll tell you this: Contribute your money to people who speak out on your behalf, because the other side — my side — has a lot of it. And you need to send your own message. You need to remind people that you vote, you matter, and that they can’t succeed without your help.”

Hanna called the current political climate a “fist fight” and reminded women that they are in fact that majority and can control this election if they really try. “Tell the other women, the other 51 percent of the population, to kick in a few of their bucks. Make it matter, get out there, get on TV, advertise, talk about this.


Hanna told women at the rally that “these are very precarious times for women” and “many of your rights are under assault,” according to the website The Huffington Post. He suggested they contribute money and support candidates who speak on their behalf, the website reported.

The congressman said he wanted his own party and ERA supporters to know that Republicans like him support their cause.
