Clinton Delegate Zipprich’s Implied Comparison of Prayer to Performing Oral Sex is Beyond Sinful
Red Bank Councilman and Democrat Chairman Ed Ziprrich compared GOP Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence’s daily prayer to oral sex on twitter last month, prompting Kelli O’Bosky Colwell, a Republican candidate for Red Bank Council to call for Zipprich to resign his position as a councilman and as the Democrat Local Chairman.
“He’s not fit for public office”, O’Bosky Colwell said of Zipprich.
“While we welcome discourse and disagreement on policy, under no circumstance can we remain silent while Red Bank Democrats make such atrocious comments. Zipprich’s implied comparison of prayer to performing oral sex is beyond sinful. As faithful Catholics – my running mate Brian Hanlon and I are and proud to say that, like Governor Pence, we pray daily. Brian and I call for Zipprich’s immediate resignation; and we call on our Democrat opponents and their local, state, and national parties to do the same. While we cannot imagine all Red Bank Democrats harbor the same thoughts as Mr. Zipprich, it is incumbent on Kathy Horgan and Erik Yngstrom to denounce Mr. Zipprich’s implication and call for his resignation to prove that is the case. Should Ms. Horgan and Mr. Yngstrom not take such action immediately, they will show yet again they are unequivocally unfit for public office.”
Zipprich did not return a call or a text for comment. His offending tweet was made during the Vice Presidential debate on October 4 and shared with the Stonewall Democrats and Log Cabin Republicans.
