Cox Sorta, Kinda Backs Away From Hollingsworth
In Wishy-Washy Statement, Cox implies that Hollingsworth was out of line for her recent comments
Dan Cox has distanced himself from Delegate candidate Shekinah Hollingsworth. Sorta.
In a statement on his Facebook page Cox asked his endorsees and supporters to “refrain from any vitriol or rudeness” and also that “any slurs against anyone are denounced and will not be condoned in the strongest possible way and will result in a rejection of my association or support.”
Since Cox did not say by name that he withdrew his support from Hollingsworth, it’s hard to say if he actually meant her or not. But given the recent uproar over Hollingsworth’s unhinged attacks on Woodsboro Burgess Heath Barnes, the link can be inferred.
I’m sure that Cox’s supporters, all of whom are reasonable people, won’t at all accuse Cox of abandoning his own supporters when it’s inconvenient, that Cox bowed to the alter of political correctness, or that Cox has become such a supporter of gay rights.
We’ll always have this.
No word yet of Cox’s newfound rejection of namecalling and rudeness extends to himself and his obsession with referring to Kelly Schulz as “Kelly ‘Wear the Damn Mask’ Schulz’ or to his running mate Gordanna Schifanelli’s recent grotesque behavior.
Cox ended his missive by saying “Let’s win this with grace and truth” which is a hilarious fit of irony from a campaign that has been playing fast and loose with facts from the beginning of this campaign.
