|Abele gave me a stack of cash|
this big for my endorsement!
I was saddened but not surprised.
Barca has a history of squashing any criticism of Abele whenever Abele would do one of his power grabs, donate money to Republican opponents or other detrimental acts. Barca would say that such criticism might make Abele stop from making contributions to the Assembly Democrats.
It is also well known that Barca is tight friends with Abele's campaign manager and former Democrat Party boss, Mike Tate.
In other words, Barca has decided to go against the unions, the poor, the taxpayers and progressive policies in favor of a campaign donation. Barca is willing to overlook the selling off of public assets, endangering public safety, and the decimation of representative government as long as the money keeps flowing in.
Then again, I could be wrong. Just look at the massive Democratic majority in the state assembly and all of the races that Barca and Tate won over the last three cycles, including a presidential election year...
No, I'm not wrong.
Sorry, Barca, you sellout, but I will stand with the people and continue my support for Chris Larson.
