The Virginia Black Conservative Forum echoes the call from RPV Chairman Pat Mullins for the resignation of Bob FitzSimmonds as RPV treasurer.
To tolerate this sort of language from a sitting party officer is no different than standing idly by while a Republican’s rhetoric offends those in our community. As conscience demands our response in those instances, so it is demanded here.
Party officers are held to a higher standard to carry themselves in a professional manner, being constantly aware of how their actions and words can adversely affect the work of Republicans across the Commonwealth.
FitzSimmonds has failed that standard, and as such, should offer his resignation immediately. -VBC
