Dem Co-Sponsor Of Late-Term Abortion Bill Apologizes, Says She Did Not Read The Text

 

Fox News

By Alex Pappas

31 January 2019

 

Excerpt:

 

A Democratic co-sponsor of a controversial Virginia bill that would repeal restrictions on third-trimester abortions is apologizing to her constituents for supporting the legislation, saying she didn’t read the bill or know how far it went.

 

The backpedal comes as Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is defending himself amid fierce criticism that he suggested a child could be killed after birth in remarks a day earlier about the same legislation. And Virginia Democratic Del. Kathy Tran, the primary sponsor, released a video Thursday standing by the bill.

 

But in an email to her constituents on Wednesday, Del. Dawn Adams of Richmond said she didn’t fully understand the bill when she signed on to it as a co-sponsor.

 

“By now you have heard about the abortion bill, or seen the video,” Adams said in the email. “I vaguely remember signing on to this, and I did this in solidarity with my colleague and as a symbolic gesture for a woman’s right to choose.”

 

Adams said she didn’t know what was in the legislation before adding her name to it. “I did not read a bill I agreed to co-patron and that wasn’t smart or typical. I will work harder and be better for it.”

 

She added: “I am sorry that I did not exercise due diligence before this explosion of attention; had I done so, I would not have co-patroned.” Adams said she thought it only reversed “onerous” abortion regulations implemented by Republicans in 2012, and didn’t realize it “sought to do much more.”

 

The email was first reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Is this yet another case of Democrats crowing that you have to sign the bill before you get to know what's in it???

 

ETA:

 

 

She added: “I am sorry that I did not exercise due diligence before this explosion of attention; had I done so, I would not have co-patroned.” Adams said she thought it only reversed “onerous” abortion regulations implemented by Republicans in 2012, and didn’t realize it “sought to do much more.”

 

Translation: I didn't cover my ass before this piece of legislation hit the fan.

Good thing such a lazy, innattentive slacker doesn’t have a job that impacts people’s lives...

This, in a microcosm, is what's wrong with just about all legislative bodies, up to and especially including Congress.

And in Congress's case, it'll be some Lobbyist pushing a piece of legislation OUR representatives just sign without reading...

Didn't read the text? I guess that makes you either incompetent or ignorant, or both. Just another day at the office for a politician.

 

 

What I really think is that she's lying. She wanted to get some love poured on her by the left and thought this would be an excellent way of doing so.

 

"pro-choice" advocates have finally lifted the vail off their true agenda.

Blindly follow the Democrat Agenda. "As a show of solidarity" blah blah blah.... Translation: I just vote the way I'm told to vote by the Dem Establishment so I don't have to actually read the bills I'm voting for since someone has already done that for me and has told me how I'm supposed to vote.

She's lying.

 

She's only now claiming ignorance because of the huge backlash for her vote.

“By now you have heard about the abortion bill, or seen the video,” Adams said in the email. “I vaguely remember signing on to this, and I did this in solidarity with my colleague and as a symbolic gesture for a woman’s right to choose.”

 

Now I have Pink Floyd's Money stuck in my head: "I don't know, I was really drunk at the time". And how much money did the Delegate receive for her support?

 

Adams said she didn’t know what was in the legislation before adding her name to it. “I did not read a bill I agreed to co-patron and that wasn’t smart or typical. I will work harder and be better for it.”

 

Correct, it wasn't smart. Ms. Adams should be given every opportunity to work harder and be better someplace else. Nathan Phillips would (if he was an honorable, decent person) describe her apology as: "Coached and written up. Insincerity, lack of responsibility".

Change the word ‘vote’ to ‘write’ and you can apply that exact same statement to mindless_leftists here Too.

BS!

She didn't read the bill but sponsored it anyway. Hope her constituents remember that little bit of incompetence next election cycle, because her opponent sure will.
