2020 Challenger Lineup: Deval Patrick


Yep. Thought I was done with this, but it's back, because some centrists are so threatened by the real progressives running that they've switched from their "anybody but Trump, get that guy out of the office no matter what" stance to "crowd the playing field even more."

Patrick is definitely a centrist Democrat, having extensive ties to Mitt Romney and leaning heavily into the reform message rather than system overhaul. He also has quite an extensive "Controversies" section on his Wikipedia page and oop this paragraph:

On September 17, 2014, Patrick fired the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board chair Saundra Edwards and placed director Jeanne Holmes on paid administrative leave because they pressured the board to force Patrick's brother-in-law to register as a sex offender, based on his conviction for raping his wife, Patrick’s sister.

F-, 0/10, two thumbs running the hell away from this rapist-loving asshole, bye.
