Group Combatting Domestic Violence Drops DiSanto from Event

Rep. Lynne DiSanto was supposed to speak next Wednesday at the second annual “Power of Purple,” an event hosted by Working Against Violence, Inc., at the Dahl Fine Art Center to “bring community support, awareness, and education on the topic of domestic violence.”

Working Against Violence announced before bedtime last night that, given Rep. DiSanto’s endorsement of anti-protestor violence on her Facebook page, they are looking for a different speaker:

We are aware of the posting by Representative Lynne DiSanto and are meeting as a staff tomorrow to discuss the situation and seek another speaker. WAVI doesn’t condone violence of any kind. Thank you for your comments and concerns [Working Against Violence, Inc., Facebook post, 2017.09.19].

A Republican legislator is being held accountable for her inappropriate statements. How remarkable!

  1. She wasn’t advocating domestic violence, just non-domestic violence. And she wasn’t even advocating ALL non-domestic violence, just running down Planned Parenthood protesters. And she doesn’t even consider running down Planned Parenthood protesters to be violence. Anybody who blocks a road or a driveway deserves to get splattered. Can’t we all get behind that idea?
