A former Democratic governor of Hawaii on Monday called on presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard to immediately resign from her seat in Congress so the state can hold a special election to replace her.
Neil Abercrombie, who led the state from 2010 to 2014, personally phoned Gabbard, who isn’t seeking reelection, before he went public with his call for her resignation at a news conference in Hawaii. His biggest complaint is that as she runs for president, she’s been largely absent from Congress.
“I’ve left a detailed message for her as to what I was thinking, what I was doing and what I hoped she would do,” Abercrombie told POLITICO in a phone interview following his announcement. “I’m sure she pays attention to her voicemail.”
At this point it seems reasonable to wonder exactly what Gabbard is up to.
She has no shot at winning the nomination, is no longer in the debates, and has no intention of running to retain her congressional seat, so what the shit?
I am not even sure who would bother to show up to a Tusi Gabbard campaign event, but I am even more confised as to why she would bother having one?
We used to talk about her possibly running as a third party candidate to damage the Democratic nominee, but she has so little support right now that even that is no longer an option.
So seriously Tulsi, WTF?
