Cowardly is as cowardly does. It’s apparent that Democrats are getting more and more fearful as the November elections gets closer.
One particular Democrat, Rep John Spratt of South Carolina is demanding that no cameras or recordings be allowed in his debate with candidate Mick Mulvaney.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — U.S. Rep. John Spratt will debate his Republican challenger Mick Mulvaney on Tuesday, but the only people who will get to see any of it have already bought tickets to the sold out dinner at a South Carolina Lions Club.
Reporters will be allowed, but Spratt’s campaign asked for no audio or video recording of the debate between the candidates.
Mulvaney’s campaign protested the request when agreeing to the debate, then sent out a news release Monday slamming Spratt saying “in this country, we have open debates.”
It’s the latest indication that Republicans see a good chance to knock off Spratt, the longest serving congressman in the South Carolina delegation and chairman of the House’s budget-writing committee.
Spratt was first elected to the sprawling Fifth District in 1982.
Where are the screams from the indignant media, questioning what this man is trying to hide? In a world where YouTube reigns supreme, those who violate their sworn oaths to our country and our Constitution should definitely be nervous and fearful, but the public should not allow it.
