A Former Somerset County Freeholder Spoke Out. What’s Wrong With Pat Walsh?

This is what is sounds like when a Somerset County Republican Freeholder speaks out against racism, in this case former Freeholder (and Governor) Christie Todd Whitman.

“[T]hese particular tweets were not merely a racist dog whistle. They were a bugle. …

“We are not a people who look away when our president spews hateful rhetoric and tries to divide our country along racial lines. And my party, the Republican Party, must return to our roots and champion our commitment to freedom for all.” – Published in the Star Ledger, July 21 2019

But all we’ve gotten from current Republican Freeholder – who pledged just two months ago to speak out whenever she experienced racism – is crickets regarding Donald Trump's recent racist tweets.
