Christian Charity Axes Rep. Ted Yoho After AOC Attack

The Independent reports:

Republican representative Ted Yoho has resigned from the board of a Christian organisation that works to end hunger following his “verbal attack” on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in which he allegedly called her a “f***ing b***h”.

The bipartisan group, called Bread for the World, said in a statement that its board met with Mr Yoho on Friday and asked for his resignation “as an action that reaffirms our commitment to coming alongside women and people of colour, nationally and globally, as they continue to lead us to a more racially inclusive and equitable world”.

“We believe that Rep. Ted Yoho’s recent actions and words as reported in the media are not reflective of the ethical standards expected of members of our Board of Directors,” they added.
