MS state Rep responds to a reporter for the sexism allegation controversy

A Mississippi gubernative candidate responds to sexism claims from a female reporter, whom he informed, could not tail him, unless another person accompanies you.

State Rep., Robert Foster, a Republican, said Thursday on “The Story” follows the “Billy Graham” rule, and do not want to make public assumptions about his interpersonal behavior.

“I don’t want to think that everyone has the opportunity, it happens to be something that should not happen,” Foster said, reaffirm his personal “rule” that he would not allow himself to be alone with a woman not his wife.

“If you perceive a married man with another woman, and you are not alone, some people can, that there’s something takes place.”

In response, host Martha MacCallum asked why a public figure, alone with a reporter would “arouse suspicion.”

Doubling down on his position, Foster said, the thoughts of the people about the situation will not influence his decision to behave in a way that he feels is appropriate.

“Your feelings and your concerns will not be discriminated against trump my vows that I made to my wife, and my conviction, I should not be alone with another woman, who said I’m not married,” the Memphis / Southaven, MS area legislators.

He added the reporters around him accused of sexism, to accompany Larrison Campbell, asked him, and not the other way.

Campbell should, therefore, in the one, any concessions to make when it comes to another person in his truck, while they spend several hours together in the election campaign, Foster claims.

Earlier this week, Campbell wrote in Mississippi Today that Foster’s campaign director, Colton Robinson offered her a Chance to follow the candidates, but she said she would be a male colleague accompanies you.

“Perception is everything,” Campbell quoted Robinson as saying.

“We are so close to the primary. If (Tracker) was get a picture and you don’t protest a mailer, we would have the time to. And that is why we need to be careful.”

According to Campbell, the decision was ultimately out of her sex. “The only reason why you think that people think I’m using a (improper) relationship with your candidates, because I’m a woman,” she said, she said it to him.
