Mass. GOP leader gives figurative middle-finger to those who hired her

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.

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.

“It really is nothing more, nothing less than that,” she said.

Someone should tell Ms. Hughes, she’s ‘really is nothing more, nothing less than that.’

    What do Chanel Prunier and Ron “Chocolate Pants” Kaufman have to say about all this???

    Chanel of course is happy with the platform correction I am sure.
    Kaufman voted for it in conference. The wording is undeniable: abortion is tragic, we should provide support to women in crisis.

    But, as for their consideration of Kirsten, I would guess they both know she’s just an irrelevant mistake who will fade into history….

      Was hoping to see or hear a public statement about all this from Chanel Prunier and Ron “Chocolate Pants” Kaufman directly, not filtered by commentators. So far–NADA… Don’t hold your breath waiting for either of these two to get outside the MassGOP PR ‘cone of silence.’

  3. Yet another FAKE Republican – Torky, Party Chair Barbie, Runty Maginn, and now the Mouseketeer – all put in place to keep us from fielding worthy Republicans, and to keep Democrats in power.

    Where’s the outrage? They all moved to Florida, NH, or Arkansas!

  4. John DiMascio

    The platform language simply states the obvious. Of course all abortions are tragic. I don’t know too many women who get pregnant just to have a abortion.

    Same with marriage… of course traditional marriage strengthens society. Can someone tell me how it doesn’t?

    By the same token the language is open enough that it doesn’t call for specific changes in the law, so there is no reason why those who are “pro-choice” or “pro gay-marriage,” should object to it. To say all abortions are tragic doesn’t mean you’re no longer pro-choice, if in fact you are. To say traditional marriage strengthens society, doesn’t preclude you from saying you also believe in gay-marriage if you do.

    So with all due respect to Kirsten Hughes, she should have gone on the offensive against the radicals in media and Democrat Party, who object to this language…. No reasonable person would disagree with the two statements being challenged in the platform.
