OMAHA, NE -- The Douglas County Republican Party (DCRP) has been made aware of sexually inappropriate text messages sent by Nebraska Democratic Party Senate candidate Chris Janicek. DCRP Chairwoman Theresa Thibodeau released the following statement regarding these messages:
“These text messages are not just inappropriate, they are disgusting. As a woman, I find these comments and Mr. Janicek's excuse of them being 'jokes' repugnant. There is no place for this type of harassment anywhere, and especially not in the workplace."
The DCRP strongly condemns this reprehensible behavior. We call on Mr. Janicek to publicly apologize and make a contribution of at least $10,000 to a women's shelter to help support women victimized by abusive behavior.
