west virginian here. this guy has been under fire for the past two months. all of our *decent* politicians wanted him out. we also had a fellow by the name of derrick evans storm the capitol & he had just been elected into the house of delegates. both jesus freaks, both going behind bars & will be banned from our politics for the rest of their lives. it is insane to see how the hatred in these ppl drive them. they literally believe that the great sky guy is the only thing that matters in this world. some ppl still support these lunatics, & it’s the saddest thing to witness because i love my state. on a personal note, i am not only appalachian, but a mountaineer. & i’m here to say that these ppl do not & will not ever truly represent us.
