Boats 'N Hoes?

Austin, TX -- Earlier this month,  a key GOP advisor to Dan Patrick and Greg Abbott registered a political action committee named “Boats 'N Hoes PAC.” [San Antonio Express-News, 4/16/14]

Texas Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Lisa Paul released the following statement:

“Texas Republicans say they want to reach out to women, to be more inclusive, but actions like this reinforce a pattern of disrespect. There’s no defending the use of a derogatory and offensive term like ‘hoes’. How can women possibly take the GOP rebranding effort seriously? Their consistent contempt towards women is simply unforgivable.”
