The Whitbeck Controversy: Local Repercussions


My two cents: By now, we’ve all seen John Whitbeck’s disturbing comments from Tuesday, and I’m very disappointed that Randy Minchew and Ken Cuccinelli didn’t speak up to correct their friend John Whitbeck when he made his comment. I’m even more disappointed that they didn’t say anything about it for the rest of their rally. We don’t need insensitive and clueless people like John Whitbeck as our public leaders, and we don’t need people who won’t speak up when they see a friend saying something offensive. We need leaders who will stand up for what’s right.
