Today, MassGOP Chairman, Kirsten Hughes called on Congressman Ed Markey to cancel his planned fundraiser with Eliot Spitzer. Spitzer, best known for his long time exploitation of women which led to his resignation, is reportedly teaming up with Markey for a D.C. fundraiser.
"You are judged by the company you keep and it's disgusting for Congressman Markey to rub elbows with a man best known for his solicitation of prostitutes," said Kirsten Hughes, MassGOP Chairman. "Instead of lining his campaign coffers with donations from the disgraced Eliot Spitzer, Markey should immediately cancel the fundraiser and denounce Spitzer's abhorrent and unacceptable behavior. Anything short of a public condemnation and cancellation would send the wrong message to women everywhere."
