George Papadopoulos announced that he is officially running for disgraced Democrat Katie Hill’s former House seat.
The former Trump campaign aide made the announcement Monday morning on “Fox & Friends.”
Shelby Talcott at the Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Papadopoulos spent 12 days in prison in 2018 after being convicted of lying to investigators about his contact with Russians during the 2016 campaign. He filed for a House run at the end of October and officially launched his bid Monday for the California House seat.
“When I go and talk around the districts, the state, the country, they tell me we need a candidate to represent the community that has an ‘America First’ agenda at heart that supports the president,” Papadopoulos, a Republican, said.
The 32-year-old added that he will be looking to “enact legislation that has real-life consequences for the American people and my constituents.”
“I’m speaking to you from Los Angeles today,” Papadopoulos continued. “And this is a state with tremendous potential. Unfortunately, the governing apparatus and the party in this state has driven it right into the ground.”
Hill resigned at the end of October after reports accused her of sleeping with a campaign staffer and a congressional staffer.
Hill and her defenders have said the congresswoman is the victim of a double standard, but history indicates otherwise.
She admitted to having an “inappropriate” affair with a female campaign staffer, but denied having an affair with a male congressional aide, which would have violated House ethics rules.
Hill blamed her resignation on what she called a sexist double standard — a line that multiple media outlets echoed in their coverage of her resignation.
Hopefully Papadopoulos wins- California needs more Republicans in charge.
