GOP Candidate Drops Out Of Rhode Island Race: Reasons

Even after winning the case in SCOTUS, Republicans are still violent assholes, per The WaPo:

A Providence police officer who was running for state office as a Republican dropped out of the race on Saturday amid a criminal investigation for allegedly punching his Democratic opponent in the face during an abortion protest.

Rhode Island Political Cooperative Chairwoman Jennifer Rourke was among those who spoke at a Friday night protest outside the State House following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to end the right to abortion. As tensions escalated among protesters and counterprotesters, Rourke, who is running as a Democrat for a state Senate seat in Warwick, R.I., found herself not far from her Republican opponent, Jeann Lugo, a Providence police officer who was off-duty.

Video posted to social media shows people exchanging punches in a chaotic scene. During the fighting, a man who Rourke says is Lugo is seen punching her in the face.

Now imagine what they are like when they lose. Oh, wait: the Ku Klux Klan.

    That’s the fascist dream: imagine a fist punching a lib in the face, forever. 1984 called and the SCROTUS answered.

    I’d say we’re lucky the pig didn’t seek a 2nd Amendment solution since the odds are extremely high that he was packing heat.

  3. Wait, what?? I am reliably informed that committing assault and battery is a benefit to GQP nominees! He should run for Governor!

  4. He punched a woman of colour in the face in public and on camera and the consequences begin and end with him having to reluctantly drop out of a political race?

    Sounds about right. I’m guessing that he, a free man today, considers himself a proud American.

    I do not.

    As to “when they win”; the Klan didn’t disappear when Reconstruction was eliminated.
