The story about the Democrat who flipped off the Republican side during the Congressional Baseball Game keeps evolving.

Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) previously released a statement on Friday, after she was criticized for flipping off the GOP dugout.
“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,” her statement read.
“In the heat of the moment, I reacted. I have no tolerance for men who make women feel like they are unimportant or don’t belong – especially on the field. I will always stand against that kind of bigotry.”
Now, there’s only one way to read that — that she’s blaming the Republicans for her actions.
But a radio show producer who was in the dugout with the GOP said they didn’t make any comments –and that she was lying if she was saying that.
Even had they done that, her response still was juvenile.
But now, Sanchez is “clarifying” her story yet again.
She’s now saying it wasn’t the Republican team that made the comment.
“It wasn’t the team. It was an obnoxious fan who shouts misogynistic s–t at me every single year.”
She’s refusing to say what the remark supposedly was. “I’m not going to dignify it with a response because it’s nasty and it’s crude, and it has no place at a charity baseball game,” she claimed.
But she’s still criticizing the Republicans for the incident–for “trashing” her actions.
“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.”
Does anyone believe what this woman is saying, at this point? First, she acts like a vile jackass, then she tried to blame the “Republican side.” Now, she wants to pretend she didn’t say that, but tries to blame Republicans anyway? Seriously? This lady just keeps digging the hole deeper, but she doesn’t have to pull the dirt in on top of herself–and that’s what she’s doing now. What a way to make a name for yourself.
