Democrat Who Won Primary Has a HUGE Secret…
The anti-sexual harassment #MeToo movement was started by liberals in Hollywood – but the liberals in politics apparently haven’t gotten the memo.
While Republicans in the deep Red States like Alabama rejected Republicans accused of abuse (Roy Moore), Democrats have shown that they’re desperate enough for a win to elect theirs. And at least in the case of Moore, the abuse was alleged. In the case of Archie Parnell, who won South Carolina’s primary on Tuesday night, the allegations of abuse date back four decades.

According to divorce records, Parnell’s ex-wife accused him of physical abuse, masking “unwanted accusations,” and beating her several times. According to the divorce document, “the Plaintiff is informed and believes that she is entitled to an absolute divorce on the ground of physical cruelty.” On one such occasion, Parnell’s ex-wife said he used a tire iron to break a glass door, allowing himself in an apartment where she was hiding, where he then beat her. She obtained a restraining order prior to the divorce.
While the accusations of abuse were made only in court records, and no formal charges were filed, prominent Democrats did call on him to drop his candidacy. The chairman of South Carolina’s Democrat Party said that Parnell’s actions “contradict the values of the Democratic Party,” and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s communications director Meredith Kelly said that Parnell’s behavior was “inexcusable and deeply disturbing.” Parnell’s campaign manager resigned too, stating that he “never” had any business running for Congress.
Despite the explosive revelations, and urging from his own party members to step down, the voters of South Carolina collectively said “screw it,” and elected him anyway on Tuesday with 60 percent of the vote in the State’s 5th Congressional District. He’ll go on to face incumbent Republican Rep. Ralph Norman
It’s about time a member of the so-called “Resistance” won an election. It must be sad for Democrats, that this is the best they’ve got. Then again, who else do they have to blame but themselves?
