Republican Family Values On Parade

Another one falls.
Republican Family Values On Parade

Well, another one falls.

Conservative Republican Jeremy Durham, a Tennessee state representative, was only the second person expelled from the house by his fellow members since the Civil War.

He’s a stinker.

The attorney general found 22 women who said Durham had acted sexually inappropriate with them. The report includes an array of allegations, from lewd comments and inappropriate hugs to giving beer to and having sex with a 20-year-old “college student/political worker” in his legislative office and home.

He’s also being investigated for campaign finance violations.

Why is all this happening to him?

Durham previously has denied sexually harassing anyone, calling the investigation unconstitutional and an attempt to remove a conservative stalwart.

Yeah, because he’s a conservative.

The vote was 70 – 2.
