Despite what some may say, there is a way for Tennessee House Speaker Kent Williams to get back into the Republican Party
I will doubtless anger some when I say that our doors should never be permanently closed to anyone, including Kent Williams. However, for Williams to be let back into the party, he has to be sorry for what he did-ideally, he should apologize to the entire House Republican Caucus and to the party as a whole for his actions last January, and do so publicly. As part of the consequences of his actions, Kent Williams must be made to stand as an independent for at least one election cycle. If Williams survives, then he wants back in the GOP of his own accord after that, it ought then to be very seriously considered.
