Can the ship desert the rats?

Fueled by a new letter to the editor written by Lee Lucas, Gloucester County Republican Committee Chairman Bill Fey reiterated his call for the 3rd District Assembly candidate to exit the race. Lucas earlier this summer confirmed published reports that he used the "N" word. “Once again Mr. Lucas has decided to make insensitive remarks in a letter to the editor. As I’ve said before Lucas does not represent the rank-and-file of our Party and he needs to go,” GCREC Chairman Bill Fey said. “This time I am asking that Mr. Lucas keep his word and leave the Party.”

Considering how Republican leaders exploited white racism to oppose Sonia Sotomayor, maybe it's time for sensible Republicans to follow Arlen Spector's lead and leave the Party of Lee Lucas.
