progressive group has demanded the head of the California Republican Assembly resign from her position due to a controversial comment she made about rape.
In a press release issued Sunday, the Courage Campaign said it planned to deliver about 30,000 signatures calling for the resignation of Celeste Greig to the California Republican Party Headquarters in Burbank on Monday. The signatures were collected on MoveOn.org's petition website SignOn.
"Everyone is welcome to their own opinion, but not to their own facts," the petition stated. "Rapes cause pregnancy. Celeste Greig (and other factually challenged politicians) need to resign from their high profile political positions so policy can be made based on science, not ideology."
