“I was focused on raising a family, on my husband’s career, and we moved many, many times. It is no excuse. My voting record, my registration record, is unacceptable.”
Whitman said it is no excuse, and she is right. The rest of us voters have families, careers and move too.
She also said it was a mistake to mislead Republican delegates at the state GOP convention that she had been registered to vote in the 1990’s.
I am not quite sure what to make of her failure to mention her own career in this list, since it is a big part of her platform in running for governor.
An abysmal voting record as Whitman’s does raise some questions about her commitment and understanding of the important of public service.
If she thinks her life was hectic in the past, just wait until she finds out what it is like as governor.
