A Troglodyte. It sounds like some fearsome, ancient beast, gone extinct millions of years ago. What it really means is a person with outmoded, caveman-like views.
One would hope those are extinct too, but unfortunately a troglodyte is alive and well in the South Carolina Senate, and his name is Senator Phil Leventis. He filibustered for three hours yesterday against confirming Catherine Templeton to lead DHEC, and has begun already again today.
As we’ve discussed many times, Catherine is extraordinarily qualified to lead DHEC. Some, like Leventis, are simply targeting her because she is a conservative woman. It’s played out time and time again in our state, when a conservative woman stands, people like Leventis are there to tell them to sit back down.
Senator Leventis, YOU are the one who needs to SIT DOWN and let this confirmation proceed.
Call Senator Leventis today, and tell him to SIT DOWN. You can reach him at 803-212-6000 or 803-469-2047. You may also email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stand up for women by telling Senator Phil Leventis to sit down today!
