It's not unusual to occasionally be a belligerent asshole at 21. Maybe better to let a young "leader" simmer a bit before dumping them in a legislative snake pit?

Just to review, he's a 21 year old kid who got arrested for fighting with his 18 year old brother, then got a DUI. He may be a young psychopath, but it's also at least as likely he'll turn out to be a pretty normal adult in 5-10 years. This sounds like stupid teen/college stuff. I definitely knew people who were scattered and reckless at that age that grew up to be well-adjusted, fully functioning adults.

Perhaps 21 is just too young to have this much responsibility.  At least for this guy.

They need to kick this dumb shiat out of the Party and refuse to let him run as a D in the future. Run someone against him in the general to ensure he loses.

Is this the one Greenwald was stanning, or was that a different creep?

Why would right wingers want to get rid of him now? Beating the shiat out of the helpless is basically the right wing platform these days. I mean, it always has been, but they at least USED to pretend to care about wise governance and fiscal shiat. Now it's just "oppress the already oppressed" and "stop helping the helpless" with a healthy dose of getting drunk and beating your wife, because hey, at least it's not that dirty weed.

You may want to read up a bit more on this guy before giving him any kind of pass.

Fark is nothing but hypocritical woke elitists.  Who among us hasn't reacted to our brother's announcement of baptismal intent but wylin' out with a little kicking and punching and spitting??? Just a little spattin' between kin, that's all.

How was this shiathead ever allowed to run as a Dem in the first place? Do the parties have no control over gets to use their name?

TLDR: he ran unopposed in a heavily democratic area. There wasn't great communication regarding why nobody should vote for him.

Basically...he tried to blackmail a girl into giving him sexy pics, assaulted his grandpa and he just got arrested for DUI.

Dude...no.

Read up on this guy. He has a whole history of being, well, a psychopath.

And even if he DIDN'T, he is obviously a piece-of-shiat. Don't excuse him just because he's a Democrat, or because he's "just a kid". Almost without exception, people that are awful when they are young are even MORE awful when they get older.

It's almost like the Democratic Party in Kansas doesn't get as much in the way of resources as other states might.....

/ to be fair, they really dropped the ball on telling people not to vote for this guy

21 year old people get in fights and drives drunk and middle school kids sends out revenge porn and in 5-10 years he will do whatever human piece of garbage thing every 26-31 year old does and so on and so forth until he is an old man.

Just to further review, he's also the 21 year old MAN who got in trouble for threatening to publish revenge porn WHILE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL.

So perhaps your hopes for his eventual turnaround into a non-asshole are a bit... naive? Misplaced? Wrong?
 
2021-11-29 4:40:38 PM  
So just to reiterate... he's been arrested for drunk driving and assault and other Dems are calling for his resignation. But Matt Gaetz paid for sex with underage girls and Jim Jordan covered up the sexual assault of wrestlers he coached and their fellow Republicans aren't calling for them to resign?

No.  They do not.  He was not "allowed".  He chose to.  The Dems promoted a write-in campaign to defeat him for the general, but it failed.  The legislature could kick him out, but the majority Republicans think it's funny that he gives the Dems a black eye.  So, they won't.

Peat and repeat having some fun...

He has a history of making bad decisions. I don't like the cut of his jib.

He'd be perfect running as a Republican

So he is. That will probably last about 5 minutes when he realizes the gop will pay him money to act that way, rather than scolding him for it.
