DeLorenzo quits Democratic party



“This has been a difficult time in state party politics, when one of our leaders made unacceptably insensitive statements about sexual harassment, dismissing a state representative’s experience and that of many women in our society; this is an issue Democratic leaders have fought to combat,” said Rhode Island Democratic Party Chair Joseph McNamara said Thursday. “In the aftermath of this, state Party 2nd Vice Chair Joseph DeLorenzohas issued an apology, and today, disaffiliated as a member of the Rhode Island Democratic Party. He is, therefore, not eligible to serve as a member or officer of the Rhode Island Democratic Party State Committee.”

Just a technicality.

He was never a Democrat.
