Despite Calls to Withdraw, Earle-Sears Doubles Down in Speech at NRA Conference
Eric Burk, The Star News Network
Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears blamed a lack of virtue for the U.S.’ “present-day
woes” in a Friday speech at the NRA Women’s Leadership Forum. After the May 24 shooting and mass murder at a Texas school, Earle-Sears faced pressure to withdraw from the speaking commitment, but instead doubled down, publishing her speech in a Friday press release and excerpts on Twitter. She said although the U.S. isn’t perfect, it is improving.
