Offensive email from Carl DeMaio targets Scott Peters' campaign staffer

Congressional candidate Carl DeMaio wants voters to know that he's down with the whole women's rights thing: access to birth control, equal pay, etc. But, behind the scenes, if you're a woman he disagrees with, you could be the subject of ridicule.On Jan. 22, DeMaio sent an email to two members of his staff, campaign spokesperson Dave McCulloch and then-policy director Todd Bosnich (Bosnich has accused DeMaio of sexually harassing him and trying to buy his silence).

Bosnich is the former policy director for Carl DeMaio's congressional campaign and has alleged that DeMaio sexually harassed him. In an interview that aired Friday on CNN, Bosnich said that when he told campaign manager Tommy Knepper about DeMaio's behavior, he was offered $50,000 and a job with the San Diego County Republican Party in exchange for his silence. He rejected the alleged offer. Last week, Slater told Voice of San Diego's Scott Lewis that the interview never aired because Bosnich wasn't able to provide "further proof" of his allegations against DeMaio.
