Should Democrat legislator resign over conviction?
We've been waiting for the campaign of U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin to step up and fire back at the group of hypocritical Democrats who accuse him of "racism" because he sought the endorsement of a conservative Assemblyman who attended a Hank Williams Jr. concert and who was photographed standing near a Hank Williams Jr. band banner (which consists of Hank Williams Jr.'s face, some lyrics to a Hank Williams Jr. song, and the rebel flag). The worst this Assemblyman could be accused of is poor taste. Racism is a lot deeper than that.
Of course, one would have to be a person of more than Twitter depth to actually understand that racism isn't about one's fashion accessories. And as this is the Democrat Caucus of the New Jersey Legislature, you are not going to get much in the way of deep thinking. This caucus has already done so much to infantilize political discourse.
Instead of remaining silent, Hugin's camp could have reminded these Assembly Democrats that they have in their caucus, at least one member who has faced criminal charges and who has been convicted of a federal crime. And maybe they should do something about it, before going after someone who has questionable taste, but who hasn't broken any laws. Oh, but wait, the hypocrites will say... he has a Dukes of Hazard tattoo!
What a bunch of handjobs... they probably watched the show themselves (and perhaps salivated a little over the bodacious Daisy Duke).
The Assembly Democrats need to clean up their own caucus, starting with this guy...
