Shelbie Bostedt, press secretary for Democratic Congressman Steven Horsford, has refused to apologize for repeatedly using racist and anti-gay slurs, instead making her Twitter private and covertly deleting over 30 tweets.
The National Pulse contacted Bostedt by cell phone on Friday afternoon. After a brief call, Bostedt said she would communicate via email, but never responded.
Since her account was made private, the press secretary has quietly deleted deleted 34 tweets.
At the time of publication, Bostedt still appears to serve as Rep. Horsford’s Press Secretary, though her Twitter bio has also changed to remove her title.
The National Pulse has repeatedly reached out to Bostedt and Horsford for comment, with neither responding.
The national media has also failed to report the story, which would undoubtedly be front page news if the comments came from a Republican staffer.
