McSally in Cosmo Magazine – wait, WHAT?

McSally in Cosmo Magazine – wait, WHAT?

Accurate Representation, Equality
Oct 19, 2017 We started this Change.org campaign to ask the Editors of “Cosmopolitan” Magazine to: "Tell your readers the truth about Martha McSally Helen Gurley Brown, the long-time editor of “Cosmopolitan,” famously transformed it from a staid family magazine to a frank (sometimes brazen) advice manual for the modern, single career woman. In 2014, then-editor Joanna Coles expanded Cosmo’s scope to politics, “researching political candidates so you don’t have to.” She announced that only politicians who support the best interests of Cosmo readers (including equal pay, access to abortion, gun control and affordable health care) would receive the magazine’s endorsement.

McSally Defends Her Healthcare Vote – Fact Check

Fact Checks, Healthcare, National Politics

Did you happen to see the two-page letter she sent out defending her vote? If so, she’d like you to forget that, too. Especially the part where she claimed she only had two options - keeping the Affordable Care Act as is, or voting for the AHCA.
