South Florida right-wing talk radio host Joyce Kaufman fired back at Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Pembroke Pines, on her program today, calling the congresswoman “duplicitous” for criticizing Kaufman’s infamous statement that “If ballots don’t work, bullets will.”
Wasserman Schultz mentioned Kaufman’s words during a call for congresspeople to “set the tone for civility” during a roundtable discussion of violent political rhetoric and its relationship to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz.
After playing the Wasserman Schultz clip on her show and calling her “duplicitous,” Kaufman said, “She wants to tone down the rhetoric. How’s that for the pot calling the kettle black.”
Gov. Rick Scott and Rep. Allen West, R-Fort Lauderdale, are both scheduled to appear on Kaufman’s program today. You can listen live till 3 p.m.
