Jeffery Morris

That should be illegal. They did not elect that party, they elected the party that they chose. If she wishes to be in the other party she should resign and then run again as a Republican. This is a major problem in American politics. Shameful. There is simply no more integrity in politics anymore. I’m watching everything unfold in complete horror.

This woman has no real convictions as we can see, she finds retaliation to be an acceptable way of selling your convictions?? If you were a democrat os because you believe in something.. no?? What happened, her beliefs changed because she had disagreements??

Talk about a party filled with people with empty believes and ideals, much worse the Republicans accepting someone who first was against you and all of a sudden loves u? Lolll like I said , fkd up believes..

She is right. “They picked the wrong chick”. What a joke. Hopefully she will be removed from office. Maybe she could join Marjory Taylor Greene in her kiss bit empire. This is ridiculous
