“I will not be controlled by anyone”
A North Carolina Democratic legislator handed a decisive victory to the Republican party Wednesday by defecting and ensuring a veto-proof majority.
Announcing the switch, Tricia Cotham declared that “The modern-day Democratic Party has become unrecognizable to me and others across the state,” adding “I will not be controlled by anyone.”
“If you don’t do exactly what the Democrats want you to do, they will try to bully you. They will try to cast you aside,” she further proclaimed, adding “They have pushed me out.”
