Lee Quandt Not Fit to be Speaker of the House

EditorNews & Views

I recently attended the Exeter Adult Education forum a couple of weeks ago. There a woman had asked Rep. Lee Quandt to comment on the tone of the Statehouse. Lee then responded by describing other members of his own party who had disagreed with him as “domestic terrorists.” Ironically, Lee was touting his involvement with an anti-bullying bill for the Legislature. Who’s the real bully?

It seems Lee Quandt is willing to cast stones at anyone, without making an attempt to work out intellectual differences. Regardless of party, I don’t believe a public official who so flippantly uses and applies with a broad brush language reserved for real terrorists and mass murderers like the D.C. sniper is fit to be speaker of the house, much less state representative.
