A New Jersey politician who shared a sexist comment about the Women's March on Facebook was unseated by a woman who didn't think his backwards garbage was amusing, according to the Associated Press.

She came. She ran. The politician in question had drawn the female activists' ire by posting a sexist meme on Facebook mocking the participants of soon-to-be-held Women's March on Washington. The meme asked whether those taking part in the march would be home in time to cook dinner, according to Time.

During the record-breaking Women's March last January, which drew millions around the globe to protest the presidency of "I grab them by the pussy" Donald Trump, Carman, a Republican on the board that oversees Atlantic County, shared a meme asking if the march would be "over in time for them to cook dinner".

"I was angry about [the Facebook meme] because elected officials shouldn't be on social media mocking and belittling people who are expressing their concerns about their community and the nation", Bennett, who lives in Egg Harbor Township, wrote at the time. Carman refused to apologize, saying, "the women I'm surrounded by, my family, my friends, my colleagues are all strong, confident women, women who are sure of themselves".

She also said she had "lost confidence" in the local government.

Carman's humble pie was served up last night when he lost his re-election bid to a first-time candidate who, irked by his post, chose to run in the hopes of showing him the err of his opinion. Now, nine months after the male politician made the sexist joke, the Democrat newcomer successfully unseated him - that too by getting 1,000 more votes in a Republican stronghold. Ashley Bennett, a 31-year-old lifelong resident of Carman's county, spoke at the meeting and later told a reporter why she walked out. "I am beyond speechless and incredibly grateful to serve my community".
