Cenk Uygur’s longtime friend and co-worker Dave Koller also made inappropriate remarks about women in the blog posts.
Koller discussed approaching underaged girls and called them, “w***** in training.” Cenk Uygur was a founder of the Justice Democrats and was asked by them to resign via a statement released on Twitter.
