Oklahoma Democratic nominee Abby Broyles quits campaign after drunk insults girls on sleepover

An Oklahoma Democrat who was heavily criticized for allegedly verbally assaulting several teenage girls while at the home of a friend who was hosting a sleepover for the middle school students has ended her campaign.

Abby Broyles, a candidate for Oklahoma’s 5th congressional district, went to a friend’s house on Feb. 11 and became increasingly aggressive as she drank throughout the night, according to NonDoc.com, which first reported the story.

Broyles allegedly insulted the girls attending the sleepover after they got drunk, according to several people interviewed by the news outlet, who said she allegedly said one girl was an “acne fuck,” and also insulted other young girls on multiple occasions .

“Hispanic f-ker,” she reportedly said to one girl attending the sleepover, and “judgy f-ker” to another. Broyles is said to have thrown up in a laundry basket and a girl’s shoe, according to the report.

A news release by Broyles’ team Thursday announced that she was withdrawing her candidacy for Oklahoma’s 5th congressional district, citing a combination of factors including “gerrymandering” and “recent events” and “salacious right-wing clickbait.”

“Shortly after Abby announced her candidacy for CD-5, the Republican Legislature egregiously manipulated the new district to prevent any Democrat from winning. This reality coupled with the recent events that have made Abby a salacious right-wing clickbait has prompted the Broyles campaign to make this difficult decision and prompted Abby to focus on her sanity,” the release reads.

Broyles said she regrets mixing alcohol and sleeping pills.

“Last month I made a mistake that I deeply regret,” Broyles said. “As I have admitted, under one roof with a group of young women who looked up to me, I mixed alcohol and a drug I had never taken before, and for that I apologize from the bottom of my heart.”

She also states that one mother took to Twitter and the media after the sleepover and made statements that were “falsely accusing.”

“A mother I’ve never met took to Twitter and the media five days later to raise allegations that not only go against my core values ​​and beliefs, but are falsely accusatory,” Broyles said.

Sarah Matthews, a mother of one of the young girls attending the sleepover, shared KFOR and NonDoc.com that Broyles had insulted several girls at the party.

Matthews was not present the night of the sleepover, and another parent confirmed the account of Broyle’s actions to NonDoc.com based on information from her daughter. The homeowner of the home where the sleepover occurred reportedly outlined Broyles’ actions in text messages to multiple parents obtained by NonDoc.com and apologized.

Broyles initially denied the allegations when contacted by NonDoc.com, saying she was out of town, adding that the allegations were “boiled out.” She also threatened to sue the news agency.

“I saw the tweets. I was out of town on a fundraiser trip and they’re awful and offensive and wrong,” Broyles told the news outlet. “I mean, I get trolled on Twitter all the time, but I don’t know these women and I don’t know what’s behind them, but it’s just not true.”

“I am running for office. Don’t you think this is a political attack? Don’t you think they made that up?’ Broyles said.

In a follow-up interview with KFOR, Broyles claimed she was “misquoted” by NonDoc and said she “never told them I wasn’t there.”

After the editor-in-chief of NonDoc.com had KFOR tapped into Broyles’ phone call, she said she was “surprised” by the call. Fox News Digital also listened to the recorded interview between a NonDoc reporter and Broyles.

“That call was terrifying and caught me by surprise. I remember hearing the accusations and just repeating “no, no, no” and then hanging up. I was happy to be in the TikTok video with the girls, which was obvious proof of my participation,” Broyles told KFOR.

Broyles’ published a tweet on March 2 declaring that she intended to kill herself, which was removed from Twitter shortly thereafter. She said in the press release that she made an attempt to end her life that night.

“I attempted suicide on the morning of March 2, but luckily God had bigger plans for me. I’m currently undergoing mental health treatment for severe anxiety and alcohol addiction to help cope,” Broyles said.

The former congressional candidate said she will eventually return to politics.

“Once I overcome my mental health issues, I will be back to fight and protect our democracy, working with all of you – women, girls and working families alike. I promise you I’ll come back stronger than ever,” Broyles said.

Broyles also wrote a Medium post in which she explained much of her life story, including mental health issues she struggled with, and stated that she should have sought help sooner before entering politics.

“I should have asked for help sooner, before I finished the Twitter roadkill, especially before jumping into the cutthroat political arena. I was recruited to challenge longtime Senator Jim Inhofe because I was well known, a young, professional woman, and a stark contrast to the 85-year-old senator in every way,” Broyles said.
