Eric Swalwell picks Dem candidate with a past and it comes back to bite them both

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell touted a Democratic candidate in Oklahoma who essentially may have imploded her own campaign a short time later.

“Great news for our candidate @abbybroyles in OKC who is trying to win back a seat we had won in 2018!” the California Democrat tweeted earlier this month, cheering on Oklahoma 5th Congressional District candidate Abby Broyles.

But Broyles seems to have encountered a problem.

It was reported that at a party at a friend’s home attended by girls between the ages of 12 and 13, Broyles “became intoxicated and spoke derogatorily to some of the girls.”

A mother of one of the girls attending the party also called Broyles out on Twitter.

The Democrat eventually acknowledged what happened in an interview.

“Swalwell certainly can pick ‘em!” one Twitter user remarked in the aftermath.
