Webber slaps Sherrill on no 2013 vote

Mikie Sherrill took to Twitter to celebrate the 98th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment that gave women the right to vote.

Voting is the bedrock of our democracy, and we need to make it easier, not harder, for Americans to cast a ballot,” Sherrill said.

That gave Sherrill’s opponent in the 11th district congressional race, Jay Webber, the opening to criticize Sherrill’s own absences from the voting booth.

As a husband and father of four girls I am also thankful to those who fought for women’s suffrage. It’s why I would expect someone who chooses to lead on these values to practice them,” Webber said in a response tweet.  “Mikie Sherrill hasn’t voted in nine elections since 2010.”

Webber pointed out that among the elections Sherrill skipped were the 2012 gubernatorial race and in the 2012 and 2016 presidential primaries,  President Obama was unopposed in the 2012 primary.

“Mikie Sherrill hasn’t made the effort to make her voice heard in the most fundamentally American way by casting a ballot, and now she is asking others to trust her with theirs,” Webber said.
