Response to mcar (Original post)

Mon Feb 4, 2019, 01:17 PM

5. So, what's the plan moving forward?

Should any politician who has something embarrassing in their closet go full disclosure now so that it can't be used against them at a weak/difficult moment? Should they pre-emptively resign? I get the outrage about Northam- and his attempts to publicly respond to it were extremely clueless and tone-deaf- but I want to seriously know what the game plan is going to be from here on out. Northam isn't the first Democratic pol we've thrown overboard in order to maintain our ability to maintain "clean hands" while politically attacking Republican hypocrites like Trump, Roy Moore, et. al and he won't be the last but this- helping ignite public controversies over Democratic politicians whom upset them and/or Trump- seems to be how Republicans plan to maintain/increase their hold on power.
