Letter: GOP's response amounts to tacit support of Little Compton mailer

Posted

With regard to the hate-laced mail from the Little Compton Tax Payers Association, Mike Rocha state’s, as Chair of LC Republicans that "our reason for being is to promote candidates and values we espouse, not to condemn the opinions or writings of others. We decline to join in their condemnation."

When a particular group with views that are incompatible with one’s ethics latch onto one’s ticket,  there is a time-honored convention of stating that votes from that group are not welcome.

His failure to do that clearly signals tacit support for those appalling views. No way round it. Voters please note.
