Arizona lawmaker draws fire for comments on women, religion

mosley, paul

An Arizona lawmaker who recently apologized for excessive speeding is now drawing fire for comments about women and religion.

The Arizona Republic reports that fellow lawmakers and lobbyists say Rep. Paul Mosley has asked whether people are married, why they don’t have children and why working mothers aren’t, instead, home with their children.

The recollections of encounters with Mosley come as the statehouse grapples with a culture that some have deemed sexist and demeaning toward women.

House Speaker J.D. Mesnard says although he hasn’t received a formal complaint, he has spoken to Mosley about complaints related to comments he has made.

Mosely hasn’t responded to messages asking about the comments.

He’s facing a pending complaint regarding the speeding incident. It will be up to the House ethics committee to decide how to proceed with that.

  1. This guy should be removed from his government position immediately! Arrogance with no common sense is a dangerous combination.
