Another Democrat who treats politics like the family business is coming under considerable heat to drop out.
Matt Lieberman (D), son of former vice presidential candidate and Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT), is currently running for a Senate seat in Georgia.
Lieberman’s 2018 self-published novel “Lucius,” however, may be his undoing.
In this book, there is a character that claims some KKK members are “basically good people.”
In today’s world, that is way too far over the top and now there are significant calls for him to drop out of the race.
Nikema Williams, chairwoman of Georgia’s Democratic Party, stated, “Let me be clear: racist and discriminatory tropes have no place in our politics and no place in the Democratic Party.
“These kinds of offensive writings are antithetical to our party’s values and will not be tolerated.”
James Woodall, the president of the Georgia NAACP, also called for Lieberman to drop out.
He stated, “I know there were good intentions in writing this book, but it doesn’t undo the real damage these kinds of narratives create.
“Get out of the race.
“We don’t need that kind of division or distraction in a time where our democracy is literally on the line.”
Lieberman has rejected the idea of dropping out, stating, “The fact that I published this book has been known since I began this campaign last year, so an attack surfacing only now is testament to the strength of my candidacy today.”
Oddly enough, at a time when Democrats continue to portray Donald Trump as a racist, it is their own party’s roots in racism that continue to hurt their case.
