Bridget Kelly Strikes Back At ‘Venomous,’ ‘Sexist Remarks’ In Bridgeghazi Report
Chris Christie’s self-generated report intimated that because Bridget Kelly had a personal relationship with with campaign manager Bill Stepian that had “cooled,” she may have been “emotional.”
In particular, Kelly’s statement takes serious issue with several references to her relationship to another Christie ally in the report. Rachel Maddow called out those parts of the report as “slut-shaming” last night, and Kelly’s statement calls them out for blatant sexism.
“The report’s venomous, gratuitous, and inappropriate sexist remarks concerning Ms. Kelly have no place in what is alleged to be a professional and independent report.”
Kelly believes the report was meant to tarnish her credibility and cites a current investigation in the U.S. Attorney’s office as the “only credible investigation” into the matter.
