Not at all surprised. Given the responses GOP “leaders” have given to Donald Trump’s continued attacks on the Khan family, we sort of all knew this was coming from Delaware’s GOP chapter.

It is absolutely true. There are American patriots who are practicing Muslims. It is also absolutely true that there is…

Want to know how I read this? “Yes there are patriotic, America loving citizens who are Muslims. Don’t care though, people who look like them might be terrorists.”

Nobody, least of all the American “media” has to do anything to demonize Trump. He’s taken care of it himself by continually attacking a Gold Star family with the GOP playing the hype-man behind him shouting right along. McCain (a former POW..I *still* can’t figure that out), McConnell, Ryan all abhor Trump’s comments but continue to endorse him. What a disgusting joke the GOP has become. And the Delaware Republicans just follow suit. SAD!

    I saw Tom Kovach (sp?) last night and I was tempted to ask this alleged “reasonable” Delware Republican who he was going to vote for, but I didn’t feel like a big rationalization tango just then.

    @kavips, I’ll be able to give you the greatest detail on Christina’s expenditure total, as I’m not as familiar with the other district’s finances. Though it may turn out to be a similar explanation for some of them. I have a request in to the district CFO for FY16 budget detail on the account those specific expenses were recorded under. I’ll let you know what I find out.

    I won’t delete the comment. may very well turn out to warrant its own post regarding the convoluted online checkbook system. Thanks for the question!
