McCloskey leaves Republican Party

ContraCostaTimes Politics Weblog::

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.

And who said the only good Republican was a dead Republican? For shame.
