Inland Empire Republican “Cheater Chad” Mayes Silent on Sexual Assault Allegations
What a politician discusses and does not discuss on their social media pages can be pretty illuminating.
And Assemblyman Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) is an interesting case study.
Before American Children First outed his extramarital affair with Stanislaus County Supervisor Kristin Olsen, Mayes had morphed into a Republican in Name Only (RINO) seemingly hellbent on moving the California Republican Party aggressively to the left in a bid to become the Democrat-lite Party.
Instead of actually doing the right thing and standing firm on core Republican values, like limited government and lower taxes, he opted to support the largest gas tax increase in American history.
Over the last few weeks, Mayes has found the time to rail against Steve Bannon and criticize California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte for inviting him to speak at their October convention. Mayes has retweeted a squishy GOP hack-consultant by the name of Kevin Spillane who suggested Bannon was a white-supremacist. And he also found time to praise George W. Bush, an open borders globalist that massively expanded the size and scope of American government.
And who will ever forget that time he called a serial child rapist a "hero." How sweet.
You know what Mayes has not commented on the last couple of weeks?
Any of the sexual assault allegations raised against Harvey Weinstein? Okay...maybe that is being unfair since it is Hollywood and not the legislature.
What about the 140+ women who work in the legislature who signed onto a letter asking for an end to the hostile work environment that is rife with sexual harassment, groping, and even forced observation of men masturbating in front of them?
Surely, Mr. "New Republican" Mayes would say something about that, right? Nope.
Ok, ok, okay!
What about the allegations of sexual assault levied against his fellow colleague and "cap and traitor" Devon Mathis by American Children First? Surely, he would have some sort of comment about these serious allegations, right? Nope.
The "New Republican" school that Assemblyman Chad Mayes and those of his ilk are promoting is really a Democrat-Lite Party.
If you really want to differentiate and rehabilitate the Republican brand then how about actually speaking out against things that we can all agree on...um...like...not sexually assaulting unconscious staffers or pushing women into bathrooms and forcing them to watch you masturbate?
But, then that would make too much sense.
