The deluge has started. Rick Taylor becomes, I think, the 7th state representative to call for State Rep. Bill DeWeese to step down as Majority Leader.
From the inbox:
“I have also spoken with Representative DeWeese and asked him to resign his role as Majority leader. He has become a lightning rod for controversy, and we need to get back to the issues. Unfortunately this scandal has cast a cloud over our efforts to reform Harrisburg and the accomplishments we have already achieved.”
Taylor is also asking his Republican opponent, Todd Stephens to step down as a Montgomery County assistant District Attorney while he is running for office.
