Los Angeles Head of NOW endorses Palin as "REAL FEMINIST"
Advertisements [?]Shelly Mandell's (head of LA chapter of NOW) endorsement today of Sarah Palin as a feminist and supporter of woman's rights in Carson, CA at a Palin rally is a complete and utter AFFRONT to women.

What the HELL was she thinking? Supporting a woman who thinks we don't have the right to choose, whose policies as mayor required victims of rap to pay for their own rape kits? I am APPALLED. Mandell has single-handedly undermined NOW's legitimacy in way that is beyond measure.

Didn't NOW come out to publicly endorse Obama/Biden precisely because Palin's policies were so dangerous for women?

I am writing every NOW chapter I can find. This is an outrage. I hope Rachel picks this story up. Mandell should be asked to step down. If she wants to endorse Palin, she can do so as an individual-- not as a NOW chapter chair.



Heads explodin' :D

Think they're over there defending her free speech rights?

Oh that LA NOW office-the original home of Tammy Bruce. :)

I so admire this woman's guts. You know that the national office of NOW is probably planning the nastiest way to disavow her. Hope Tammy helps her out a little.

Of course, CitizenPatriot drags up the old lie about rape kit, which has been disproven.
btw, it's so funny that thye claim no feminist should oppose any form of abortion, when it was Susan B. Anthony who first coined the term "Baby murder" to describe abortion, and her fellow women's rights champion Elizabeth Cady Stanton was also very much opposed to abortion.

Excellent points.

DU continues to circle the drain.

What's sad, the site is bundling $$$ for Obama.
