At a press conference today outside the Massachusetts State House, Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh publicly admonished State Representative Michael Rush for actively seeking the endorsement of Massachusetts Citizens for Life.
Chairman Walsh stated, “We as Democrats believe in the right of a woman to choose regarding abortion, and since Mr. Rush does not support us, I am rescinding our support of him.” He has instructed the Secretary of State to remove the Democratic Party nomination for State Senator of the Suffolk & Norfolk District from Michael Rush. Chairman Walsh also stated that there were other reasons for Rush’s punishment, e.g. trying to revoke the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry.
After the press conference,he proceeded to Boston City Hall to direct the Boston Election Commission to stike Rush’s Democratic Party membership as well. Representative Rush could not be reached for comment.
The difference between this universe and ours? The Democratic Party in this universe does not allow Republicans to seek office claiming that they are Democrats.
