What the fuck were they supposed to do? They couldn’t stop him from running as a Democrat.

If the Lt. Governor happened to be a Republican, it would be fascinating to see the responses here.
What an incredibly shitty and hypocritical comment. The responses would be exactly the same. What was fascinating was all of the comments from Republicans at first who were eagerly waiting for “spin” from tbe Democrats. Instead, without exception, they all called for him to resign. I’m sorry that you were disappointed by them doing the right thing.
