Party-Switchers

Monday, January 04, 2010

I always wondered what happens to staff members when a legislator switches party affiliation.

In one case, I now know. They all resign en masse.

That took guts.

Good for them. Good luck finding a new staff, turncoat.

I don't know much about this guy, but was this really a surprise? Most of the people that have changed parties haven't been all that big of a surprise and I typically say, "well, it is about time." Has this guy made some major changes in how he has voted and the platforms he has supported?

I generally don't like people that do this. It just seems like a lousy thing to do to the voters that have a strong party preference and voted for you based on party affiliation. If you are having doubts about the party you belong to or feel that you are more in line with the "other side," then wait until the next election and let it be known then.

I doubt GOP staffers in the South are all difficult to find.

No, but competent staffers in D.C. are really hard to find.

"No, but competent staffers in D.C. are really hard to find."

Maybe they should pay them a living wage. DC staffers get screwed fianacially becuase it looks good on a resume.

If this guy switched because that is the way his district is, or becuase he was voting with the R's all along, then it was an OK move for him. If he switched becuase he sees some sort fo anti-Democratic trend on the horizon, he is an idiot. Trends come and go. Switching to beat the political trend is a losing proposition.
