Mulligan's backing of Moylan pointless

Success - Article sent! close

I have heard concerns about Rosemary Mulligan's endorsement of Democratic candidate Marty Moylan. It's time to be candid about what this endorsement really means.

First of all, I do not put a great deal of weight behind an endorsement from a state house veteran who could not collect enough petition signatures to get on the ballot for her own re-election.

Second, these actions are nothing new for Mulligan. She has appeared on literature with Democratic state Sen. Dan Kotowski and President Barack Obama. She has never been a leader for Republican values. She should have joined the Democratic Party years ago.

Next, she is only concerned with promoting her pro-abortion agenda. She should have spent her time strengthening our state's economy so that women and families have choices on where to live, work and how to educate their children, but those choices are a very distant second to ensuring that women can have taxpayer-funded abortions on demand.

Let's be honest. This endorsement is about giving House Republican Leader Tom Cross the proverbial bird as she exits the state House as a petulant child who blames the House Republican Organization for not getting enough petition signatures.

Lastly, Mulligan's characterization of individuals who disagree with her as "extreme" cannot go unanswered. Throughout her career Mulligan has supported taxpayer-funded abortions, and she has opposed common sense legislation such as parental notification and informed consent. Now I ask you, who is extreme?

Good riddance Rosemary.
