Since State Senator Daylin Leach (D) is not heeding their calls to resign, Democrats appear to be purging Leach from their ranks. Leach is your State Senator if you live in West Conshohocken and Plymouth Township (plus Upper Merion, Norristown, and parts of the Main Line and Delco).
What does the purge involve so far?
First, PennLive.com reported that Senate Democrats have removed him from the Senate Appropriations Committee and barred him from internal caucus discussion.
Second, we noticed that Leach was missing from the roster of elected Montco Democrats who are taking part in the Montgomery County Legislative Summit being held on October 7th. We emailed Leach to find out why he wasn’t participating and did not receive an answer.
Fellow Democrats want Leach to resign over a series of accusations involving everything from telling inappropriate jokes at work to rape.
Democrats in the State Senate recently released a report of an investigation into the allegations by a law firm. The report basically said Leach told crass jokes.
Three Democrats have already announced plans to run in a primary in 2020 to unseat Leach.
