Doing this is a de-facto admission of wrongdoing.

The real question will be who will wipe the drool from his mouth and who will be behind him moving his lips and thowing their voice for him?

if they get him up to the mic he might just say “who am I again?”

They (the GOPe) are forcing him to run again because they think his name will allow him to win. Then he can step down and the GOPe can replace him.

They are wrong and this seat is lost to the rats, but the GOPe is ok with that.

Thad is too senile to do anything but double-down and deny all charges.

His handlers won't let him do the honorable thing and step aside.

Do the right thing Thad. Withdraw for reasons of health. Spend more time with your family. Oh wait, spend more time with your aide.

1. rogue workers
2. did not authorize
3. we must unite as a party
4. not my fault
5. “they” are extremist
6. never in my years of public service to this wonderful state....
7. isolated incident

everything short of “I am not a crook” and “did not have sex with that woman...”

It will be 100% predictable.

LOL! I can't wait! He'll either talk incessantly about his 'outreach', or the senile old coot won't make any sense at all.

In a couple of weeks, we'll hear the excuse for his stepping down is because the 'stress' of all this has impacted his health.

I expect him to say the equivalent of “It depends upon what the meaning of ‘is’ is.” and “Has anybody seen my little sheep?”.

He probably does not even know where he is at.

Will he demand a fair and open review of the voting books so every
Mississippian knows the truth about the run off election?

Or will he deny and circle the wagons?

I’m guessing the latter.

Plausible deniability. He will say he didn’t do it. And he is probably right. The GOPe did it.

Or am i confusing him with Harry Reid...

One thing about the GOP, when they pull the trigger, they never miss.

Every time, they shoot themselves in the foot.

No, at least had the decency to commit “American Seppuku” because he still had some shread of something resembling “Honor”.

The GOPe running Thad have no honor...

That’s supposedly a copy of the press release. I really hope that’s shopped. I can’t believe a sitting senator would release something so unprofessional.

Thad will double-down and triple-down that McD is just a racist and the findings of the election should stand,,etc and so on. Rove is involved, so we can expect the sleaziest lame excuse-ridden drama short of Obama.
