Bosworth's Graphic Press Conference



Bookmark and Share

U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Annette Bosworth warned that nobody less than 18-years-old would be admitted to her latest press conference.

The Republican candidate has held numerous press conferences throughout the month leading up to the South Dakota Primary Election. Now, she's using a tactic that proves to be for mature audiences only.

Those who attended the press conference expressed shock upon walking into the venue, as they saw the graphic words used as a backdrop for the event.

"What you see around you are the words which have been written about me on blogs, on the internet, throughout this campaign," said Bosworth.

Bosworth says the idea was inspired by her 10-year-old son.

"Because these words show up when he googles his mom's name," said Bosworth.

The U.S. Senate candidate says she asked graffiti artists to do the same, and paint any language they found over her campaign signs to send a message.

"The exhibit shows South Dakota what happens when women who dare to challenge the status quo, the establishment powers, run for public office," said Bosworth.

Bosworth says this is an issue only women deal with.

"I would like you to try to find the word that correlates to that in a man," said Bosworth, as she pointed out a particularly offensive word.

Eventually, the shock of the signs turned to questions regarding hiccups in Bosworth's campaign. Particularly the validity of signatures on her nominating petitions.

"Did my sister sign the petition while I was in the Philippines? Yes she did," said Bosworth.

More questions surfaced on how the doctor treats her employees.

"Do I pay my employees? Alright, so I've got some employees here. Do you guys get paychecks?" said Bosworth.

Despite drawing criticism throughout her campaign, Bosworth remains hopeful.

"If you want somebody who's truly motivated, to improve not just South Dakota but our country, they will vote for me," said Bosworth.

Bosworth says she feels members of the media are also partly to blame for the hurtful comments she's endured. However, she feels holding press conferences will give her a chance to clear the air.

The South Dakota Primary Election is Tues, June 3.

Annette Bosworth is one of five Republican candidates running for retiring Sen. Tim Johnson's seat.
