Terri Lynn Land on Civil Rights
Congress and the President have failed. They spend too much, our border isn't secure, and they've made America less safe.
Congressman Peters says a mom like me isn't up to the job.
But moms like me get things done. Let's secure the border, repeal ObamaCare and get equal pay for equal work for men and women.
I'm Terri Lynn Land and I approve this message.
"Well, we all like to be paid more and that's great, but the reality is that women have a different lifestyle," Land said at the 2010 Senior Women's Club event. "They have kids. They have to take them to get dentist appointments, doctor's appointments, all those kinds of things. And they're more interested in flexibility in a job than pay."
Women make 74 cents to every dollar a man makes for work in Michigan. Michigan is ranked 45 out of 50 states in terms of how much women are paid compared with men.
American Bridge 21st Century, which publicized the video, is a liberal super-PAC that conducts opposition research on behalf of Democratic candidates and liberal issues.
"Terri does not tolerate discriminatory acts or speech, and believes that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect," the emailed statement said.
When reached by phone, Land declined to elaborate on what she finds objectionable about Agema's talk. She deferred to the emailed statement. Land has not responded to questions about whether Agema should be asked to resign. Meanwhile, the state's top elected Republican, Gov. Rick Snyder, has publicly condemned Agema.
In August 2009, the New York Times reported that the 2012 GOP platform "calls state court decisions recognizing same-sex marriage "an assault on the foundations of our society."
