McCloskey leaves Repuglican'ts

I've always liked Pete McCloskey. Republican or not, he was one of the good guys in California politics. He's seen the light.

From the CoCo Times:

Lifelong Republican, Marine veteran and former congressman Pete McCloskey has left the GOP and registered with the Democratic Party.

McCloskey says he is disgusted with the "succession of ethical scandals, congressmen taking bribes and abuse of power by both the Republican House leadership and the highest appointees of the White House."

"A pox on (Republicans) and their values," he wrote.

Do not miss his e-mail announcement about his decision.

Good on yer, Pete. If there are any other decent Republicans out there, I hope they follow your lead.
