When Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” it turned into a major controversy. Now, in the wake of the controversy over high-profile reporters like Bob Woodward and Jonathan Alter claiming they were bullied and intimidated by the administration, comes a report that Obama administration officials used some very ugly language in talking to a female reporter:

Another D.C. veteran, who declined to be named, was told about another incident involving a colleague, where a member of Obama’s inner circle used very harsh words when speaking with her, according to the New York Post.

“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” said one D.C. veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — b–ch, c–t, a–hole.”

When he complained, things didn’t get fixed. “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened,” he said.

That’s some ugly language to address a woman with for an administration that has made a lot of political hay out of the “war on women.”
