On Sunday, U-T San Diego implied in an editorial that Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher’s integrity as a Marine was in question after he abandoned the Republican Party in the middle of his run for mayor.
While that point seemed to get the most attention in the discussion the editorial provoked, it was the part right before that I found most intriguing (emphasis added):
And in leaving the Republican Party as he did, criticizing it as equally to blame for political dysfunction, he essentially left his colleagues behind, harming Republicans running for office. Does this demonstrate a Marine’s loyalty?
