DC Log Cabin Statement on the Resignation of Kwame Brown
|WASHINGTON, DC – Following the resignation of Council Chairman Kwame Brown, DC Log Cabin President Robert Turner II released the following statement:
“Barely six months into the year, and we have the second resignation from a member of the D.C. Council. Kwame Brown said he wanted to take the honorable course by resigning. The honorable course is not to commit fraud in the first place. The honorable course is to respect the trust one is given from the people when elected. As long as this trend of political corruption continues with our elected officials, Congress will never allow us to have full voting representation or budget autonomy. If this keeps up, look for talks of another Control Board. Sadly, the question of everybody’s mind is ‘who’s next?’”
Log Cabin Republicans is a national organization started in 1977, with state and local chapters nationwide, which believes in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. Log Cabin Republicans educates our party about why inclusion wins and that opposing gay and lesbian equality is inconsistent with the GOP’s core principles of smaller government and personal freedom.
