Well, they would know.

The son and daughter of a Missouri House candidate are urging people not to vote for him because he regularly espouses racial and homophobic views and dislikes Jews and Muslims.

Steve West, 64, gained attention after winning the August Republican primary for a northwest Missouri House seat when word spread about views he frequently expressed on a radio show.

“I can’t imagine him being in any level of government,” his daughter, Emily West, told The Kansas City Star on Monday.

On Tuesday, her brother, Andy West, told the newspaper his father is “a fanatic” who must be stopped.

“If he gets elected, it would legitimize him,” Andy West said. “Then he would become a state official, and he’s saying that Jews shouldn’t even have civil rights.”

The West children became more concerned when they recently drove through the Clay County district Steve West would represent and saw several yard signs supporting him.

This is the second time in this campaign season that a GOP candidate’s family has come out publicly against them. 

The first time was when six of Arizona Representative Paul Gosar’s siblings appeared in a campaign ad against him

Personally, I think if a candidate’s family is telling you that they suck, you should probably assume that they do indeed suck.

    West’s disgusting views will be music to the ears of those who think as he does. Let’s hope they are outnumbered by voters with functioning brains.

    “The reporter asked Spaeth how far he would be willing to take his hatred, and he told Pilkington he would gladly — and violently — turn on his sister, a liberal who votes Democratic.

    “If there is a civil war in this country and you were on the wrong side,” Spaeth said he told his sister, “I would have no problem shooting you in the face.” “I love my sister, we get on great. But she has to know how passionate I am about our president.” he was serious.”

    Yes indeed a family should speak out against a family member running for office that is a known racist and crook. The reason some do not is because of money more than likely. As in the case of trumputinsteins, the grifters and leeches of society cannot survive if they don’t hide daddy’s huge problems that are now theirs. Family and friends of people that harm America have a duty to speak out. They should not enable a crook and liar.

    “She has invited the public to watch this perversion with these homosexuals. I’m sorry this is what’s happening.”

    “when Bredesen made his fateful statement on Kavanaugh, he made a game attempt to have things both ways — to fit those loose puzzle pieces into a coherent picture. To that end, he referred to Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, as a “heroine.” The difference-splitting factor, he said, was simply the evidence against Kavanaugh, which to his mind did not “rise to the level” of disqualifying.” ““I also understand that Phil Bredesen is going to be a much better representative for women in Congress than Marsha Blackburn ever would be,” Mancini added after a moment. “And we have to look at the totality of that and where he’s coming from and where Marsha Blackburn has failed women over and over and over again.” OK

    Isn’t a bit late for them to be coming out with this? Shouldn’t they have been saying this since he started running and continued to shout it all during his campaign. Plenty of early voters have already cast their ballots. Waiting until a week before the election is too late.
