Conservative Senator Nancy Ruth told a meeting of international women’s equality rights groups Monday morning that it would be best for them to “shut the f–k up” about their concerns over the government’s maternal health initiative. [...]
Afterward, Ruth was asked about her comments. “I’m not going to repeat them in front of microphones. You gotta be crazy.”
Crazy maybe, but at least not careless… that designation is reserved for those who advise attendees at a meeting to “shut the fuck up” without checking for hot mikes in the vicinity.
(I’ll address the context of her remark later.)
