Republican Party of Texas Calls on MJ Hegar to Disavow Support From Patton Oswalt

AUSTIN, TX – Today MJ “Hollywood” Hegar announced her intention to run for the Senate in Texas. The video featured a cameo from Hollywood Leftist comedian Patton Oswalt – who has a history of being vulgar and obscene.* Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:

“The explicit content and offensive language used by Patton Oswalt in these tweets is utterly detestable. A person is known by the company they keep. MJ Hegar proudly associating herself with a person who thinks insulting Christians is humorous and is harassing a distinguished public servant such as Senator John Cornyn exposes her character and mindset. The types of vulgarity and insults spewed by Oswalt show the innate hypocrisy of the left, and Hegar’s association with Oswalt is discrediting to her candidacy. We call on Hegar to disavow his support of and connection with her campaign.”

When Senator John Cornyn pointed out the distasteful language and vulgarity, Patton Oswalt took it upon himself to lob insults at Senator Cornyn directly.**
