WOBURN — The contest between incumbent U.S. Sen. Ed Markey and U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III to determine who can best placate far-left mobs ahead of the upcoming Democratic Senate primary continued on Tuesday, as both Democrats vowed to legalize prostitution.
Both Democrats also backed proposals to give incarcerated felons the right to vote and scrap prison sentences of life without parole. Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman Jim Lyons noted that such a radical policy shift would cause violent criminals like 2013 Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose death sentence was recently overturned, to eventually walk free.
Markey and Kennedy also vowed to abolish solitary confinement, of which Tsarnaev had been assigned to.
Meanwhile, according to Markey, it is Massachusetts’ “responsibility to listen to sex workers and advocates to work together on how to move forward.”
“These dangerous proposals are where the Democrats are headed, and they’re absolutely insane,” said Lyons. “Both Sen. Markey and Rep. Kennedy will do anything and promise anything to pander to the far-left mob that appears to be dictating the Democrat Party’s policy platform.”
Lyons noted that two Republicans are currently angling for the opportunity to challenge either Markey or Kennedy. Political newcomer Kevin O’Connor of Dover and Indian-American scientist Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai of Cambridge qualified for the Sept. 1 Republican primary.
The Ayyadurai campaign, however, continues to ignore O’Connor’s request to hold a candidate debate as well the Massachusetts Republican Party’s offer to help organize one.
“Since both Mr. O’Connor and Dr. Ayyadurai are competing to give voters a choice other than the far-left promises touted by the Democrats, I think Massachusetts voters would benefit greatly from a debate between them,” Lyons said.
