UPDATE: Bob's full explaination:
In an e-mail, FitzSimmonds said he thought the word he used had the same meaning as "twaddle," which is defined as foolish speech.
"The minute I found out my error, I deleted the post and apologized," he told Pilot on Politics. "I don’t use that kind of language."
"Also to be clear, " he added, "my post was not about Barbara Comstock. It was relating to the sexist stereotypes being used by the woman posting."
Shaun Kenney posted on Facebook a THIS story by Justin Higgins about Howie Lind ... the comments section were very benign until this exchange (I don't know the women, so I left her last name off):
Heather Bailey ...I also think women are going to be very frustrated about about a man trying to usurp Barbara's position in this race. If women come out in force for her, it will create a battle cry for Republican women so loud that Howie Lind won't have a prayer of competing with her. Republican women are a force to be reconed with and I for one want to see this power harnessed effectively in key political races.
I'm not entirely sure what he is trying to say, the syntax is especially Facebooky. But folks, just so you know, not only has Bob FitzSimmonds run multiple times for office ... he is the current RPV Treasurer! I don't know him well, we've engaged in debate on Facebook .. but we can't have this shit anymore! It is killing us! He posted this over an hour ago and hasn't had any response since them, despite pleading to apologize. THIS is why we are losing. We need to clean up our own house before we can take on the Democrats. Having leadership in RPV using the word "twat" at any women, whether it is a FB commenter or in reference to Barbara Comstock ... we just can't stand for this anymore.
To the doubters ...
and Bob has apologized:
