Ohio Republican judge leaves GOP after 41 years over disgust with the party under Trump

Published

on

A longtime Republican judge in Ohio has declared that she is switching her party affiliation to Democrat, the Columbus Dispatch reported Friday.

“I’ve been a registered Republican since I was 18, and 41 years later I do not recognize the Republican Party as it is today,” Common Pleas Judge Julie M. Lynch told the newspaper on Friday. “And I’m not the same person I was when I was 18,” she added.

And Lynch may not be the only judge thinking about making the switch, says the paper, who quoted a local Democratic chairman.

“County Democratic Party Chairman Michael Sexton said he has heard rumors that other Republican judges are considering changing their affiliation,” the Dispatch wrote.

“Judge Lynch is an example of women voters in Franklin County who are frustrated with and are abandoning the Republican party,” the paper quoted Sexton as saying.

“It was clear to me that she is upset about the direction of the party led by President Trump,” Sexton said.

The party of Donald Trump — who lied more times in the hours before the censure vote than Schiff even stands accused of — actually claimed that it's the California lawmaker who should be called out for dishonesty.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., left open the possibility that he would vote to impeach President Donald Trump if he saw evidence that the commander-in-chief had engaged in a quid pro quo during an interview with "Axios on HBO" broadcast Sunday night.

After telling Axios’ Jonathan Swan that he would need to see evidence of an actual “crime,” Graham added that “if you could show me that, you know, Trump actually was engaging in a quid pro quo outside the phone call, that would be very disturbing."

Connecticut town’s KKK history recalled ahead of controversial upcoming GOP event

Published

on

The town of Shelton, Connecticut was brutally whacked for its history of racism ahead of a Connecticut Republican Party event.

"Fun fact. In the 1980s, the Imperial Wizard (the national leader) of the Ku Klux Klan lived in Connecticut," columnist Colin McEnroe noted in The Middletown Press.

The host of WNPR's "The Colin McEnroe Show" explained how James Farrands ran the KKK out of his garage in Shelton.

"This may be an unfair memory to bring up, right when Shelton is having another bad run. In recent weeks, the school system there had to deal with a Snapchat pic of a student in blackface lifting both middle fingers and using a common distasteful racial epithet," McEnroe explained.
