Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) has resigned from the board of directors of the Christian charity, Bread for the World, after he allegedly told Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) she was “disgusting” and a “fucking bitch” over her comments excusing the rampant violence, looting and property damage during the ongoing BLM protests as nothing more than people who “feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night.”

The bipartisan organization devoted to targeting hunger and poverty around the world said in a Saturday statement that it called for Yoho’s resignation, as his actions are “not reflective of the ethical standards expected of members of our Board of Directors,” according to The Hill.

Bread indeed…

As the Heritage Foundation notes: 

New York recorded 528 shootings from the beginning of the year to the end of last month. Year-to-date, New York City has seen a 53.5% increase in shooting incidents, a 63% increase in shooting victims, and a 27% increase in murders. Burglary has also increased 45% and theft of automobiles is up 61%.

This spike in violent crimes follows months of anti-police protests and riots, as well as New York City’s decision to disband the New York City Police Department Anti-Crime Unit.

Following the altercation – which Yoho denies happened, AOC took to the floor of the House, where she dropped an F-bomb in a dramatic recounting of the alleged exchange.

We wonder if Yoho come under similar scrutiny if he made the alleged comments to a male colleague?
