Equal Pay Day comment stirs up Twitter fight between Rep. Matt Manweller and Seattlish

A sparring match started Tuesday afternoon between the Twitter account of Rep. Matt Manweller’s and the Seattlish blog, following a KUOW segment where Manweller said the gender pay gap is a thing of the past.

The Ellensburg Republican responded, through Twitter, to people who disputed his claim. He cited articles from right-leaning organizations, Forbes and the Washington Post to back up his position.

The discussion got a tad more heated as more folks got involved, including the liberal-leaning publication Seattlish.

Then the argument veered away from equal pay.
