Ashley Bennet was aghast after New Jersey politician John Carman posted a meme during the Women's March this January, asking if the protest would be "over in time for them to cook dinner;" however, she put her anger to good use, running against Carman and defeating him to win his seat as an Atlantic County freeholder. They stayed for two hours, but Carman declined to apologize and instead praised the women in his own family for being "strong" enough not to be offended. "Ashley is looking forward to restoring dignity to the freeholder seat, and doing all she can to help strengthen Atlantic County's crumbling economy, reverse the uptick in foreclosures, and improve access to medical assistance for those in need". "WILL THE WOMEN'S MARCH PROTEST BE OVER IN TIME FOR THEM TO COOK DINNER?" the post asked, accompanied by a stock photo of a woman stirring something on a stovetop. He apologized a few days later, saying it was an error in judgment.
Bennett, a first-time politician who ran as a Democrat, beat Carman by almost 1,000 votes out of some 14,000 cast in the race, the Inquirer reported.
And there was Bennett, a first-time candidate who works as a psychiatric emergency screener at a local hospital. But when a local politician made a sexist joke, she chose to try to unseat him.
Bennett thanked her co-workers for switching shifts with her throughout the past year so she could campaign and said she hasn't spoken to Carman since the election. "I never imaged I would run for office". "I am beyond speechless and incredibly grateful to serve my community", she told Inquirer reporter Amy S. Rosenberg.
One person who didn't find it amusing was Bennett.
The post drew national attention and was compounded by the fact that Carman did not apologize at the next freeholder meeting despite almost two hours of public comments chided him for his conduct.
