Democratic Senate President Leroy Garcia hasn’t been what one would call a profile in courage this legislative session. He tried to save his own a$$ by voting against the Red Flag gun bill while at the same time trying to throw one of his colleagues under the bus. We’re pretty sure this wasn’t the lesson in leadership he was supposed to learn from the military.

But it gets better.

Instead of owning his sh!t at the state legislature, Garcia refused to answer for his puzzling vote, according to 9News.

And here is the video, which is such a delight to watch.

His vote was pure, craven politics. That’s fine, it’s cool. But at least have the cojones to stand up and defend the vote, especially as the highest ranking Democrat.

What a hero.
