I recognize that there have always been hypocrites in the Church, some of whom have risen, at times, to high position. This is why I do not automatically support LDS candidates, unlike many of my fellow Mormons. And there are many Republicans who lack integrity also. I would like to clean as many of them out of the Republican party as we can, meaning clean them out of public office.
