    Let’s Assassinate the one and laud, praise, raise and celebrate
    the likes of:
    McAuliffe; his investigation conveniently PC lost and forgotten..
    Dwight Jones and his Party Donor-Friends with Benefits, extorting of taxes their way without public say, with much propagandizing hype of party benevolence by party partnered media.
    Herring who didn’t bother to read his job description before taking his oath of office.
    The party, not restricted by any government processes, that is
    perfectly correct and ethical in all matters, just because they say so;
    and regardless of their actions, refuses responsibility for them.
    It’s PC.
