I agree with the “From the Backshop” column that State Sen. Mike Delph went “over the line” in his Twitter feed and actions regarding the proposed HJR-3 amendment. His comments such as criticism of area churches, including his own, that they all should be ashamed, was “way over the line.” His actions are better described as a temper tantrum, which led Republican leadership to discipline him with a “time out” by forcing him to move way in the back and sit with the Democrats in the Senate.
Rather than supporting Delph and his extreme views, voters should take a look at his Democratic opponent, J.D. Ford, for the State Senate. Ford will provide fresh leadership and will be proud to sit with his Democratic colleagues.
