VICTORY: Celeste Greig Ousted From California Republican Leadership

Celeste Greig, head of the California Republican Assembly, told the media that pregnancies by rape are rare “because it’s an act of violence, because the body is traumatized.” The Courage Campaign started a MoveOn Petition calling for Greig’s resignation from her leadership position over the unscientific, offensive comments. The petition had gathered more than 28,000 signatures when it was delivered to the California Republican Party headquarters. At a CRA convention, Greig was ousted as California Republican Assembly President by an 84-78 vote for her inflammatory comments about rape.
