beezeltown: 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.


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

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

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 missed the middle-school-revenge-porn-was-that-bad-should-I-not-have-done-that-oh-well-boys-will-be-boys part of the story.

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.

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?

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?
