Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz compared Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker Wednesday to someone abuses women.

"Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality," Wasserman-Schultz said during during a round-table discussion on women's issues at the Milwaukee Athletic Club. "What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch."

The remarks were first reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
