Rosen Blames Scrutiny of Her Business Credentials on Sexism

In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV), the Democratic candidate taking on Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) in November, blamed scrutiny over her alleged business credentials on sexism.

The Associated Press, along with the Reno Gazette Journal, found no evidence of any business owned or started by Rosen, even though the Democrat claims she “built” a Nevada business. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) both released ads hitting Rosen on the topic.

Instead of clearing up her work history, Rosen doubled down and blamed the criticism on sexism. “It’s not new for women to have their experience baselessly dismissed,” she wrote.

But her line of reasoning makes no sense.

In 2016, the NRSC launched a similar attack on then-Florida U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-FL). A press release, “Patrick Murphy Doesn’t Know If His Business Is Still In Business,” blasted the Democrat for inflating his business experience:

But Patrick Murphy refuses to back away from his lies about his work experience before running for Congress. And when the Miami Herald editorial board put him on the spot, Murphy couldn’t answer the most basic question about the small business he claimed to build: is it still operational?

That’s right. Murphy, the self-proclaimed small businessman who supposedly built Coastal Environmental Services, doesn’t even know if the company is up and running.

Rosen’s sexism claims don’t hold up to scrutiny, and she will most likely continue to face questions about her business history through the fall.
