Not only should he NOT resign, he needs to be arrogantly defiant. Maybe double down and smoke some weed too. I am dead serious. I am sick of all the weak apologizing. The Dems get away with being in your face defiant. It works.
I second that - then the southern conservative Christians should forgive him - since that’s the right thing to do...he wins on both fronts!
Unless he is truly sorry....then his approach is fine.
The story in MY mind is how the local media here mentions in EVERY STORY how he is a TEA PARTY guy....that and the fact that this is a pretty minor charge....180 day sentence and $1,000 fine....but it is being hyped like he raped and murdered a bus full of nuns.
that is stupid
ths guy needs to get the hell out
he is a loser, a selfish jerk
I agree... tell the press to FOAD and clean up your act. Cocaine is so 1980’s anyway.
As a Christian, I can forgive the man. And if he asks God for forgiveness and accepts Jesus into his life, God will also forgive him. However, as a representative in the highest position of government, he should resign immediately, get help for his addiction, and move on in his life in another direction. The Republican Party does not need to lower itself to the standards of the Democrat Party.
Agreed. You apologize for an unintended consequence or for something that was no fault of your own and you might have been expected to stop it in retrospect. One is not "sorry" when they're doing something they thought they'd get away with....they're caught.
Even if he is a true conservative, he should've been smart enough to look around and see how many pols are obviously compromised. He should've not run, but instead supported a candidate who would not embarrass constitutional conservative momentum.
At this point, he probably can't be blackmailed for his (if it's now former) drug habit. Maybe he could finish his term with dignity and vote like a true conservative....and be part of finding a constitutional conservative replacement for the next election.
I read somewhere he supported the Dream Act. How conservative can he really be?
