Virginia Lt. Governor Winsome Sears recently appeared on FOX News and was asked about the country’s growing crime problem.
Sears blamed it on a lack of leadership, going straight to the top of government.
Democrats have been beyond soft on crime. Since the beginning of the pandemic, they have actually been letting people out of prison.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears: Lawlessness in America ‘coming from the highest levels’
Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears argued on Sunday that lawlessness in America is “coming from the highest levels,” explaining that she believes it is “from the presidency on down where there is no leadership.”
Sears made the argument during an exclusive interview with “Sunday Morning Futures,” telling host Maria Bartiromo that she believes there is a “vacuum” and that leaders “seem to be following what’s happening on the streets.”
“That’s not going to work for anyone because the leader has to lead. That’s why they’re called leaders and they have to show the right way, the righteous way,” Sears told Bartiromo.
“There is right and wrong, and you can’t look at what’s happening in the streets and smash-and-grab and say, ‘Well, it’s just social justice.’ No, it’s theft, and it’s destroying our economy.”
Sears was referencing the wave of retail thefts taking place in cities across the country in recent months, with thieves stealing everything from luxury goods to eyeglasses.

Is this lady awesome or what?
In my role as Lieutenant Governor, I preside over the Senate each day. While I am not a member of the Senate, I hold the tie-breaking vote in the event of a tie. Today, I had my first opportunity to do so on SB137. #LG42 #everforward #Virginia pic.twitter.com/NHsRXaLnhV

Happy birthday, Lincoln! The Republican Party was born in 1854 in a school house in opposition to the Kansas-Nebraska bill, which extended slavery beyond the Missouri Compromise. In 1860, Lincoln became the first Republican President. #everforward #AbeLincoln #blackhistorymonth pic.twitter.com/B7RAZbTD7N
