Costello, a extra reasonable Republican who remains to be weighing a Senate bid, quickly subtweeted, “Let me emphatically state he would’ve misplaced the Normal (election) by 5 earlier than this, even to the do-nothing clown (John) Fetterman, however now it’s clear he’d lose to a golden retriever by double digits.”
Calling Parnell a “catastrophe of a candidate,” Costello added that Parnell ought to “write books & play hero on Fox & gtfo out of the race.”
Republican actual property developer and first opponent Jeff Bartos already declared Parnell “unelectable” in September as a result of Parnell’s spouse had secured two momentary protecting orders towards him in 2017 and 2018. Each have been expunged with no public record of their contents accessible.
On Monday, Parnell’s estranged spouse reportedly testified that she endured years of bodily and verbal abuse. “It simply acquired worse and worse,” she stated, adding that the family was “strolling on eggshells. The minute he walked again into the home, we have been petrified.”
GOP Sen. Pat Toomey, who’s retiring from the seat, could not even deliver himself to typically denounce abusive conduct when he was requested Tuesday in regards to the allegations towards Parnell.
“I actually do not have something for you proper now,” Toomey told HuffPost reporter Igor Bobic.
What a profile in braveness. Toomey could not even muster the usual response: If confirmed true, these are very critical allegations.
All the GOP Senate slate is shaping as much as doubtlessly provide voters an array of allegedly abusive behavior. Whether or not it is Herschel Walker in Georgia allegedly threatening to “blow” the brains out of his former partner and girlfriend, Missouri’s disgraced ex-governor Eric Greitens allegedly sexually violating and blackmailing a girl with whom he had an affair, or Parnell’s household allegedly dwelling a lifetime of concern, Republicans are assembling a regressive subject of males with stunningly horrific anger points.
