SACRAMENTO-

The communications chair for the Democratic Party of Sacramento County resigned Friday afternoon, following a series of vulgar tweets directed at a speechwriter for republican Senator Ted Cruz.

Allan Brauer’s tweets were called “appalling and inexcusable” by the DPSC chair Kerri Asbury, and faced a wave of online criticism.

“No matter what our political disagreements may be, wishing harm is never an acceptable response during heated public debate or any other time,” Asbury said in a written statement.

FOX40 went to Brauer’s home to get his side of this tweet-tastrophe.

The man who had so much to say online didn’t want to comment about the situation in person.

He also didn’t want his brief doorstep chat with reporter Sonseeahray Tonsall broadcast.
