ABC News: Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — a 2020 presidential candidate — continues to elicit mixed reactions from fellow politicians following her decision last week not to take a side during the House’s formal impeachment vote against President Donald Trump, instead voting “present.”

The disapproval list now includes former Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie.

Gabbard announced in October that she would not be seeking reelection, but Abercrombie on Monday called for Gabbard’s more immediate resignation from Congress.

“When she just showed up, and then voted ‘present,’ I thought, ‘wait a minute, you know, that’s, that’s, that’s a step too far.’” He said Gabbard should resign “the sooner the better” to allow for more time for a special election to be held.

Abercrombie also serves as co-chair of Hawaii State Sen. Kai Kahele’s campaign to replace Gabbard in Congress.

“The people of the second district are being adversely affected by her presidential campaign,” Abercrombie said of Gabbard. “And so if she offers the opportunity then for a special election, I think then she’s showing respect for the people of the second district and respect for the people of Hawaii.”

  1. Interesting, I’ve donated to Trump’s campaign and also Tulsi’s. In a note to Trump, I suggested he request Tulsi to become his VP in 2020. No reply yet, but this would solve both sides of the coin – but they’re probably bought and owned by the greediest.

    • Are many of you commenters able to read?
      Apparently not as the GOP rot has you since Mr. DUFF DOCUMENTS DAILY THAT THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PARTYS IN America!

      Ah, you believe Steel about tRump as he is about to drain the swamp.

      Ok boomers…..

  2. I agree with David although I do not disagree with Winstonsmith either. While I do not claim to possess all the facts, I believe Tulsi is a bright light in a dark corrupt State which should never have been allowed into our Union. Anyone who sought to discover the history of Obama quickly found out he had many friends in high places in the corrupt State of Hawaii aiding in his cover up of his past. It is amazing how he served as President for two terms and we still don’t know most of his background and details of the alleged schools he attended and on and on and on. The one trait the officials in Hawaii excel at is lying. In this sense they fit well with the group of liars they joined. Observe Trump is not seeking to wall out any of the rich immigrants from the far East who bring millions or billions of dollars to by expensive homes in California. This group is welcomed isn’t it all because of MONEY no matter how illegally it may have been obtained. Most of them enter via Hawaii.

  3. Most of us live our lives with a constant barrage of lies, rumors and bullshit. Impeaching a president or other government representative for appeasement will not work and shouldn’t. Trying to appease the wild, wild Left won’t work either. Even with a dysfunctional, corrupt and broken legal system, using it for revenge or to inflict damage on competitors, causes further damage to a teetering election system that might one day make us beg for foreign intervention with armed troops. Our Constitution is more damaged than any other institution, and it’s abandonment to sate greed and vice, is why our system gains new cracks daily.
