Former Oklahoma GOP Congressman Mickey Edwards Leaves Party; Calls it a Cult

The exodus away from the Republican Party continues as former Congressman Mickey Edwards is leaving the party saying that it has turned into a cult.

From The Hill:


Former Oklahoma GOP Congressman Mickey Edwards said that he is leaving his party because it has become a “cult” led by President Trump

Edward was critical of Republicans questioning the results of the presidential election, and of Republicans who voted to throw out Electoral College votes of two battleground states after a mob invaded the Capitol building last week to stop their work.

“This has become a cult. It’s no longer a political party. It’s a cult,” Edwards told Oklahoma’s News 4 on Thursday. “It’s the kind of a cult that when the leader of the cult does anything, no matter what it is, or how awful it is, they voted.

“They voted to question the election results even after people came into the Capitol, tried to kill them and killed a police officer who was trying to protect them. And they did that.”

The former Congressman has registered as an independent for the time being.

  1. Mickey Edwards ,I was so glad to see another Rhino leaving the party, rode the coattails until it wasn’t popular anymore. So now you don’t believe in lower taxes saving the unborn, the numerous peace deals with Israel’s adversaries . Good time to be a Democrat you can become one of the top socialist in your new party. Thanks for calling 80 million people liars when we said we do not believe the outcome of this election. So sad that a great conservative state like Oklahoma has you. Good by and good luck comrad.
