Profile In Cowardice, Jason Chaffetz

He will not endorse nor support, but he is going to vote for Trump. So there's that.

Yeah the guy who has promised to investigate Hillary Clinton from day negative 87 is going to vote for Mister Pus*sy Grabbing Tic Tacs after all.

I guess it's always party before country, before your fifteen year old daughter, before your wife, and before any sense of personal morality, right Congressman?

Here's what he said the day the Access Hollywood tape was released:

I just -- I can't enforce that person. I just can't do it there is no possible way I'm voting for Hillary Clinton. She is one of the most flawed candidates in my lifetime. But I can't -- my wife and I, we have a 15-year-old daughter. How in the world could I look my 15-year-old daughter in the eye and say, honey, you know what? Your dad endorses Donald Trump for President. I can't do that. And I won't do that. I also at the end of the day have got to look myself in the mirror and say I called balls and strikes as I see them. And you know what? No matter which party, if you're going act like that, and that's how you think, you're not going get my endorsement. You're not going to get my support. And I hope we do that on both sides of the aisle. It's just wrong. And we have to call it out as being wrong.

And then yesterday.

Whoops! Nevermind.

Elise Jordan calls it a "spineless choice." I can think of a few other words, too.
