Dark deal further alienates voters

-A A +A
By The Staff

Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Spring Hill), in one of her final acts as the U.S. Congresswoman for the 5th District of Florida, showed complete disrespect for the people who elected her.

By manipulating the process, she took it upon herself to appoint her successor.

We are deeply disappointed.

On the final day that an individual could qualify to run for Congress, and just minutes before the official deadline, Rep. Brown-Waite announced she would not seek re-election. Instead, the incumbent congresswoman had in tow Hernando County Sheriff Richard Nugent. Sheriff Nugent immediately announced he would be the Republican candidate for the congressional seat.

Now we’re not talking about showing a lack of respected toward Democrats - we realize our partisan politicians of both parties are way past showing proper etiquette and respect toward each other.

Rep. Brown-Waite instead insulted the members of her own political party.
