Chris Ricks: Diane Mitsch Bush deserted her electorate

Why are so many people so happy with Diane Mitsch Bush’s decision to quit her job as our state representative? Why is she receiving so many accolades for abandoning her constituency?

She campaigned on and was elected to serve a full term, not one-half of one.

Her decision to desert her elected position, in favor of pursuing her own whimsical desires, is a sign of her prolific, unethical, self-indulgent nature.

Beware her upcoming run for a higher office. If successful, how long will that commitment to her electorate last?
