“Character counts”: ProJo Endorses Doherty

Patrick mentioned it in his post but it is significant enough to merit its own post.
The last week has witnessed a too predictable parade of endorsements of Democrat candidates by the Providence Journal. The predictability ended abruptly on Sunday.

… Mr. Cicilline’s luster began to fade in his last months in City Hall, when he was untruthful about Providence’s desperate fiscal state as he was running for Congress. He basically said that while there were problems, the city was in strong shape. After the election, the severity of the city’s condition swiftly became obvious. …
On the basis of his background, temperament and character, we believe that Bren-dan Doherty would be a moderate, thoughtful and flexible congressman who can work with Democrats to get things done, in the tradition of the late U.S. Sen. John Chafee. And in some areas in which he has expertise, such as law enforcement, anti-terrorism and immigration, he could become a congressional leader. Very importantly, we believe that he will tell the public the truth and not just what it wants to hear. Character counts.

“Character counts.”
Not to the progressive gang. They’re all neatly lined up behind Cicilline. Lying, cheating, distorting, manipulating… it’s all justifiable if it furthers the progressive agenda.

Could it be the ProJo feels they assisted in the fraud that got Cicilline elected in first place?
This could be an attempt to make up for that or just to appear creditable to the 7 people who still get the paper.

Amazing.However,Cicilline is so dirty and frankly nauseating that it’s hard to imagine any editorial board supporting him-well,maybe the turds at RI Future.
