It’s been one week since Sen. Dean Heller’s re-election campaign was exposed for running digital ads featuring photoshopped images of Congresswoman Jacky Rosen’s eyebrows. The campaign took down the ads after they were caught, but Heller has yet to give any explanation for how the ads were approved by his campaign or apologize to Rosen for the disrespectful and sexist manipulation of photos of her.
Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:
“This disrespectful and sexist attack on Jacky Rosen was a low point for Senator Heller’s desperate re-election campaign. Senator Heller owes all Nevada women an explanation for why he thought photoshopping a woman’s eyebrows was an acceptable way to conduct political discourse. By refusing to take responsibility for these misogynistic games and declining to apologize to his opponent, Dean Heller is telling Nevadans all we need to know about his lack of character and integrity and why he does not deserve another six-year term.”
