Liars, murderers, and pedophiles. This is the state of the Republican Party. Don Blankenship knowingly defied safety regulations at his mine and threatened his workers into doing his illegal bidding. Despite being shut down 48 times in one year, he continued to break safety rules until 29 people were killed in a mine explosion. Now, he’s trying to pull a “Trump” by lying about his actions causing their deaths as he campaigns for a Senate run in West Virginia.
Blakenship was in prison earlier this year for conspiracy to commit mine safety violations.
