House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi shook her head in disgust Monday afternoon when asked about an advertisement released by Breitbart.com, a conservative political Web site, that features her face superimposed onto a sexually suggestive image.
The image, one of several advertisements for "Breitbart CA" -- a new, California-focused offshoot of the site -- drew ire throughout the day.
Asked about the image following a news conference, Pelosi (D-Calif.) responded: "So tasteless, that .. I mean, is it even worthy of a question. It's so undignified."
The image in question features Pelosi's face superimposed onto the body of a bikini-clad woman who is on her hands and knees, with her tongue out. Immediately above that image is one of California Gov. Jerry Brown's head superimposed onto the body of a male-body builder.
Earlier in the day, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) called on Republicans to condemn the ad.
“If GOP leaders are serious about their rebrand, then both their elected and Party leadership should condemn this outrageous behavior, call on Breitbart News to immediately remove the ad, and not continue to use this website as a forum for their views,” Wasserman Schultz said in a statement. “To say the least, the Breitbart News ad is foul, offensive, and disrespectful to all women. It is a disgusting new low and would be reprehensible against any woman — regardless of party."
