Allan Brauer forced to resign after tweeting horrible death wish on children of political opponents

MrDeathWishThe Sacramento Democratic Party didn’t take long to rid itself of a big embarrassment.  Just hours after Allan Brauer outraged Twitter by wishing horrible deaths on the children of Ted Cruz staffer (and friend of ours) Amanda Carpenter, the party demanded and got his resignation:

The Democratic Party of Sacramento County (DPSC) Friday called for and accepted the resignation of its volunteer communications chair following of series of personal twitter comments directed at GOP staff after Republicans voted to defund President Obama’s health care law.

DPSC chair Kerri Asbury said the personal twitter comments made by Communications Committee chair Allan Brauer were “appalling and inexcusable.” She accepted his resignation Friday, and issued the following statement:

“The comments by our volunteer communications chair are appalling and inexcusable. No matter what our political disagreements may be, wishing harm is never an acceptable response during heated public debate or any other time. Mr. Brauer has apologized for his comments and expressed his remorse.”

The news made the local media in Sacramento, although the local NBC affiliate reported the resignation without the involuntary nature of it:

The communications chair for the Sacramento County Democrats resigned Friday hours after sending a tweet that threatened a U.S. senator’s speechwriter and her family.
