An upstate New York paper was sent scrambling on Tuesday after it published a piece that mocked Republican congresswoman Elise Stefanik for being “childless,” an attack Stefanik herself called “hateful, abusive, and heartless.”

The piece in the Times Union, titled “Storytime with Elise Stefanik,” was an attempt at political satire written in Stefanik’s voice and attempted to blame her lack of children on her political ambition. “I myself am childless because I am a rising star in the Republican Party,” the piece said. Stefanik in a statement with her husband blasted the decision to publish the “inherently sexist” attack. The statement called for not only a retraction and apology but also an “explanation as to how this was allowed to be published in the Times Union and who will be held responsible and accountable.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Casey Seiler, the editor of the Times Union, told the Washington Free Beacon the piece has now been removed from its website and said it was published due to a lack of oversight of “community-generated blogs” it hosts.

Free Beacon reporter Matthew Foldi tweeted today, “Over the weekend the Times Union published a piece that mocked Elise Stefanik for not having kids. Today Elise and her husband demanded a retraction, and the paper told me that they removed every piece the blog’s authors have written on their site.”

Rep Elise Stefanik and her husband Matt Manda issued the following statement to the Times Union paper demanding a complete retraction.

“As a young couple, we have developed a thick skin over many years as we have become accustomed to repeated sexist smears in media coverage. However, the Times Union’s decision to publish an article that mocked us as “childless” is a new low and is truly heinous and wildly inappropriate. The shameful statement is not only inherently sexist, but also hateful, abusive, and heartless. The Times Union publisher, editors, and staff have clearly let the paper’s standards sink so low that they have chosen to embrace sexist scum and content under the masthead. They should be ashamed.”

“We not only require a complete retraction, but we also demand an immediate public apology and explanation as to how this was allowed to be published in the Times Union and who will be held responsible and accountable.”

“We are grateful to the thousands of constituents who have encouraged and prayed for us over the years. Thank you for your kind words and best wishes. Like millions of families, we hope and pray that we will be blessed by becoming parents.”

  1. OMG! When you think these sick people can’t be any more disgusting. How horrible to write such a heartless thing. These evil people don’t realize that us independent conservatives are tired of all their fake and disgusting news. Let’s promote a third party big time.

    • This paper serves Upstate NY in the Albany area. They printed a disgusting story and I only get Sunday’s edition and I’m planning to cancel! Like most papers, they and consistently liberal in their views. Never mentioned all the good work President Trump did for our country and the world. So sick of the lies and the fraudulent election. Now our future is filled with fear. They’ve taken freedom of speech, honest elections, fair &equal justice. This is a very sad day.😢

  2. This paper needs to be sued for a couple hundred million….They are supposed to report news…not give disgusting opinions and print made up stories. Another rag sheet that needs to be extinguished for good.
