The rep originally said she was responding to a misogynistic remark.
After some pushback she has now changed her story and said that it was a fan who she was responding to, and that it is the same fan who heckles her every year.
Sanchez stated in her second statement, “It wasn’t the team… It was an obnoxious fan who shouts misogynistic s*** at me every single year.”
However, her first one appeared to accuse the Republicans, she claimed, “The Congressional Baseball Game is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s a great cause and brings both sides of the aisle together for a night off from partisan politics… That is why it really struck a nerve when I heard an offensive and misogynistic comment from the Republican side on my way back to the dugout.”
And when her story started falling apart, she blamed the Republican women, again playing the victim.
Sanchez stated, “If the Republican women would have stood up and said that’s not acceptable instead of, you know, trashing me for my response then we might have a place where there’s no misogyny that’s tolerated by anybody anywhere.”
However, all of the back peddling comes after Sanchez was called out for lying.
The Mascot Coordinator for the Washington Nationals took to Twitter to expose the lying congresswoman.
I was in the dugout with the Republicans last night.
She is lying.
Nothing offensive or misogynistic was said by anybody.
