Ex-Dem Rep. Van Drew: Democrats Told Me To ‘Obey’ And Vote For Impeachment


Rep. Jeff Van Drew explained why he left the Democratic Party for the GOP: Democrats told me to ‘obey’ and vote for impeachment.

Ex-Dem Rep. Jeff Van Drew: “Let me tell that story really quickly actually it’s important. So I was speaking to one of the county, I have eight counties in my district, and I was speaking to one of the county chairs and as I spoke to that chair, he said, I just want to tell you something that you absolutely are going to vote for impeachment and I said no, I’m not, I think that this is a very weak impeachment. I think it’s wasted millions of dollars, hours of time, has not been productive, has split the country apart, has caused a fractioning of the country and literally has caused civil unrest in a sense and he said well I’m telling you if you want to run in this county, you’re gonna have to vote for it, you’re gonna have to obey and the bottom line was that was the final point. There were all of these other issues and I could tell you what some of the other issues were where I believed differently but I kind of went along, but that issue really, the fact that, you almost talked quid pro quo so because I’m gonna vote in a way I don’t want to vote you’re gonna force me and then allow me to run. That’s not what America is about, that’s not what our election system should be about.”

You are in good company Congressman Van Drew. Like Ronald Reagan, you did not leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left you.
