A Republican in Prison Charged With Killing His Wife Just Won a Party Primary

In January of 2016, Donald Trump remarked, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK? It’s, like, incredible.” The comments were meant to be a bit of a joke, but the last five years have shown that Trump was probably right.

The quality of Republican candidates has certainly gone down since Trump was elected. This was clear in a recent Indiana primary. Despite sitting in jail, charged with killing his wife, Andrew Wilhoite just won a Republican primary.

Nikki Wilhoite, stricken with cancer, had just recently had her last chemotherapy treatment. Andrew Wilhoite is accused of hitting her in the head with a flowerpot and dumping her body in a creek.

The accused murderer will appear on the ballot for the Clinton Township Board. A state election official explained, “There is no legal reason he can’t be a candidate. Under our system you are innocent until you are proven guilty. If a person is convicted of a felony, then they are no longer eligible to be a candidate and are ineligible to hold office.”

The trial date for Wilhoite’s case has yet to be set.
