(RepublicanInformer.com)- Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin last week texted a black state senator to praise her for her speech on Black History Month. Problem is, he texted the wrong senator.
The speech was delivered by Senator Mamie E. Locke, but Youngkin sent his text message to Senator L. Louise Lucas.
Lucas privately replied to Youngkin’s text to let him know he made a mistake. Feeling like an idiot, Youngkin texted her back to apologize for his error.
Now, nobody knew this happened. It was a mistake. She told him. He apologized. End of story.
But then on Friday, after his administration and House Republicans threatened to unseat 1,000 Democrat appointees to state regulatory and governing boards for rejecting a former Trump administration official for Youngkin’s cabinet, Lucas decided to air the embarrassing incident on Twitter as payback.
Yes, she’s that vindictive.
Then again, Lucas has spent the last month positioning herself on Twitter as Glenn Youngkin’s arch-nemesis, all to elevate her own social media presence. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she would do something so vindictive.
Lucas took to Twitter claiming she intended to stay quiet about the embarrassing incident, but after what happened, “they don’t deserve it.”
She posted photos of herself and Senator Locke and told Youngkin to study the two photos.
In short, she made it a racist thing – implying that all blacks look alike to Glenn Youngkin.
Now that Lucas decided to boost her Twitter profile at Youngkin’s expense, the Governor was forced to issue a public statement about the private incident. He explained that he made a mistake and apologized to Senator Lucas “right away.”
But since when do Leftists accept apologies?
There is no forgiveness, no atonement, which is why even after he apologized, Lucus used the incident as a way to attack the Governor when he made her mad about something else. Chances are, that was her plan all along.
But she wasn’t done. Lucas then shared the private text messages with the Washington Post which then published them.
