Disgusted by assembly with regard to Parra ousting

I wonder if any of the rest of your readers are as completely disgusted with the behavior of the leadership of the state Assembly as I am in regard to the ousting of Assemblywoman Nicole Parra (of Hanford) from her office in the Capitol building. Parra abstained from voting along the Democratic party line in the recent vote on the state budget proposal.

The smirk on the face of Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, when she said on television, “Well, you know there are consequences for everything you do,” in my mind, epitomizes the corruption that comes with every little bit of power given to someone who really cannot handle it fairly.

I very much applaud Nicole Parra for standing up for what she believes is right and for being “fed up with partisan politics” – and aren’t we all! She certainly would get my vote.
