I watched the candidates for lieutenant governor debate on ETV on Monday and found Bakari Sellers’ comments nauseating.
In 2012, while a member of the Legislature, Sellers was charged with DUI on I-77 in Chester County and had his driver’s license suspended.
He pleaded guilty to reckless driving and paid a $445 fine after prosecutors decided not to pursue the DUI charge. If he does not have enough self-discipline, sound ethics and morals to stop himself from violating our state laws with regard to driving, he certainly is not qualified or competent enough to debate the issue of ethics reform in pursuit of the office of lieutenant governor of our state.
Our state and our country will continue to race toward their demise if voters do not wake up and stop electing people who believe honesty, morals, ethics and laws are for you and me but not for them.
