Karen Pence to rally behind GOP candidate who complained women having jobs wasn’t part of ‘God’s design’

Published

on

Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, is planning to rally support for a controversial Republican candidate who has said that women who work are violating “God’s design.”

Local news station WFAE reports that Pence on Friday will join a campaign rally for Mark Harris, a former pastor who has been sharply critical of women who decide to take jobs instead of staying home and supporting their husbands.

In a 2013 sermon, for example, Harris discussed “God’s plan for biblical womanhood” and ranted against “a culture and… an environment that have made it extremely difficult for any woman… to live out and fulfill God’s design.”

Additionally, Harris once lamented that modern women no longer have “basic” skills such as “how to prepare a meal, how to sew on a button, how to keep a home, how to respond to a husband.”

Harris has also talked in the past about his belief that wives should “submit” to their husbands, but he has insisted that doesn’t mean that women are technically inferior to men.

“[Jesus] didn’t consider it wrong to submit himself to the Father,” Harris explained to Roll Call earlier this year.

The rally with Harris and Pence is scheduled just nine days before early voting begins in North Carolina.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) was also on the call, and reportedly blasted White House chief of staff Mark Meadows for the failure to reach a deal.

“Meadows, when John Boehner and Paul Ryan was Speaker, impeded every agreement they tried to make with us on must-pass legislation," Hoyer reported said.

Democratic pressure on intel agencies exposed a motherlode of information on foreign meddling helping Trump: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that congressional Democrats believe their pressure campaign on the intelligence community was crucial to exposing Russia's newest plot to interfere with U.S. elections on behalf of President Donald Trump.

"For weeks, top Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate have been blaring warnings and demanding briefings and public disclosures from the intelligence community, shrugging off Republican charges that they’re politicizing intelligence," reported Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney. "And Democrats can now point to evidence that their pressure campaign might be working. On Friday, the Trump administration’s counterintelligence chief publicly confirmed that Russia is attempting to harm Joe Biden’s candidacy in 2020. The official, William Evanina, even singled out a pro-Russia Ukrainian, Andrii Derkach, as a key participant in the Kremlin’s new effort."
