  • Claire Everhart, a woman based in Washington, D.C., is determined to unseat New Hampshire representative and virulent misogynist Robert Fisher in 2018.

  • Fisher, who reportedly goes by Pk_atheist on the site, has made comments mocking women’s “subpar intelligence” and decrying the feminist movement for stripping men — particularly fathers and husbands — of their rights.

  • “I’m going to say it — rape isn’t an absolute bad, because the rapist I think probably likes it a lot,” Fisher wrote at the time. “I think he’d say it’s quite good, really.”
