Folks keep asking for this, and as I can go long stretches without the ability to text/phone/post, it’s time I just post the link so all can see…
I want to say, she has a right to her opinion, pro-death, pro-life, pro-or-anti-whatever, but she got elected with 41 votes and considers that significant, but jumps out to then say that 52 votes from that same group….her bosses (the Republican State Committee) is not significant. Well, that’s more than disrespectful to her bosses, that’s grounds for termination.
From the Patriot Ledger:
Mass. GOP leader doesn’t back party platform
Massachusetts Republican Party Chair Kirsten Hughes, a Quincy city councilor, said she doesn’t support the platform approved Tuesday night by the Massachusetts Republican Party.
The head of the state’s Republican party is distancing herself from a more socially conservative platform approved by the Massachusetts Republican Party.
The platform adopted Tuesday night by a majority of the 80-member Republican State Committee says the party will “affirm the inherent dignity of human life.”
“We believe that every instance of abortion is tragic,” the platform reads. “We advocate policies that will assist a woman during a crisis pregnancy.”
On the question of gay marriage, the platform says the party believes “the institution of traditional marriage strengthens society.”
Massachusetts Republican Party Chair Kirsten Hughes, a Quincy city councilor, said she doesn’t support the platform, which she downplayed, saying it represents the beliefs of just the 52 members of the committee who supported it.
