Better Late Than Never – But Really It Took You This Long To Figure the GOP Out?

33 year old Hawaii lawmaker Beth Fokumoto (who is of half Irish and half Japanese heritage) resigned from the Republican Party and is applying to the Democratic Party (I think she’ll be fast tracked) because of all the divisive and racist rhetoric coming from her fellow Repubs. She had been a leader in the Republican conference there until she criticized Trump after the January woman’s march.  Since then she’s been in a sort of limbo of conscience.

“This election, I saw members of my party marginalizing and condemning minorities, ethnic or otherwise, and making demeaning comments towards women,” she said in an open letter of resignation to the Republican Party.

This election?  Just this election?  Where ya been?  Hawaii gets all the mainland papers, right?

Well, welcome anyway Beth.  Aloha!
