Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik fired back at George Conway on Saturday, calling him a misogynist and criticizing him for spreading a doctored image of her.
Conway, the husband of White House aide Kellyanne Conway, called Stefanik “lying trash” and urged voters to support her Democratic challenger. Mr. Conway, a longtime Republican lawyer, has reinvented himself as a sharp critic of President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans.
Stefanik ripped Conway in a tweet, writing: “the one thing I’ve NEVER been called in my life is TRASH,” adding: “You need serious help. My opponent Taxin’ Tedra [Cobb] can have your sick mysogynist [sic] support.”
And for you @gtconway3d – the one thing I’ve NEVER been called in my life is TRASH.
You need serious help. My opponent Taxin’ Tedra can have your sick mysogynist support.

Conway on Saturday also spread a doctored image of Stefanik, that appeared to show her flipping the middle finger.
“The photoshopped picture that the Leftist Twitter mob led by George Conway is circulating is FAKE – I’ve been so busy exposing Adam Schiff’s #regimeofsecrecy that I haven’t had time for a manicure in weeks!” Stefanik wrote on Twitter.

Conway deleted the tweets after facing criticism for spreading misinformation.
