Republican Congressional Candidate Pushes Back Against Charge She's Only Being Recruited for Her Looks

Sara Hart Weir recently announced that she is running against Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids in Kansas's 3rd District congressional race. According to Elizabeth Arnold, a southern Johnson County progressive political activist, it's all about her looks.

She went on to explain why women like Weir are "insidious."

"They provide cover for those who abuse the law, ethics, morals, and other humans," Arnold charged. "They dress up policies that abuse our fellow citizens.”

Asked to respond in a radio interview with KCMO, Weir informed Arnold that this is an election, not a beauty pageant. 

Weir also shot back in a statement provided to Townhall, where she emphasized her years of work on behalf of people affected by Down syndrome. She called Arnold's tweets sexist.

“Until recently, I was a successful, respected President and CEO of the world's largest organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with Down syndrome - a position I took on at the age of 32 because I earned it," Weir wrote. "I helped lead the passage of the historic, bipartisan ABLE Act (the most sweeping disability legislation since the ADA), started innovative public-private partnership coalitions with fellow CEOs, and took our fundraising and team to new heights. 

"On day two of my campaign (for U.S. Congress in Kansas’ 3rd District) to have Ms. Arnold (a former political candidate and now political consultant), demean my life experiences, achievements and track record of getting things done based solely on my appearance (and being a GOP woman) is sexist, uncalled for and insulting to women everywhere.  

"The November 2020 election in KS-3, Sharice Davids v. Sara Hart Weir, will come down to two things - who is better on the issues and who can lead.”
