The Grim Reaper indicated the refusal of the Moore campaign to rebut comments by State Senator Jakie Knotts challenging Sanford’s criticism of the killing of unarmed protestors by law enforcement officers had much to do with his endorsement of Moore:
There is nothing wrong with killing people. The Governor was wrong to question this practice, and the Moore campaign was right in saying that Sanford had no right to call it wrong. This is an outstanding example of pro-death leadership.
“We don’t need a governor that’s running commercials on a radio station apologizing for what law enforcement has had to do in the past.”
Then he chuckled and added: “But I’m glad they went.”
