Dem. Rep. Flips Bird at GOP Dugout During Congressional Baseball Game

(Headline USA) Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., flipped the bird at her Republican colleagues during Thursday night’s Congressional Baseball Game, making the crude gesture after she was pulled for a pinch-runner.

The Republican team was leading 5-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning when Sanchez drew a leadoff walk. As she hustled back to the Democrats’ dugout, she turned toward the GOP bench, raised her left hand, and flashed her middle finger at them.

When confronted about the move on Friday, Sanchez claimed it was in response to an “offensive and misogynistic comment” from the Republican dugout, though she did not say what, specifically, was said or even who said it.

“The Congressional Baseball Game is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s a great cause and brings both sides of the aisle together for a night off from partisan politics,” she said in a statement.

“That is why it really struck a nerve when I heard an offensive and misogynistic comment from the Republican side on my way back to the dugout,” she continued. “In the heat of the moment, I reacted.”

Sanchez claimed she was taking a stand on behalf of women everywhere.

“I have no tolerance for men who make women feel like they are unimportant or don’t belong—especially on the field,” she said.

“I will always stand against that kind of bigotry,” Sanchez continued.
