"I will not become a Republican.........er......uh, never mind!"
A letter explaining why he could never join the Republican Party sent by party-switching U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander in March "unequivocally" came from the congressman, his former chief of staff said Thursday.
The letter, sent to labor groups in Louisiana, castigates Republicans as anti-worker and says it would be "impossible" for him to join their party — the party Alexander unexpectedly joined last week.
"After discussions with members of the Republican Party who understand the need to support our nation's workers, I have come to the conclusion that it would be impossible to join a party that not only ignores the people that make this country great, but also pressures their members to vote against any and all bills that are supported by unions,"
I guess he now wants to pressure other members to vote for bills that will bust the unions.
