Last year Holyoke Mayor Alex “Gay-OC” Morse announced that he was trying to primary incumbent democrat Richie Neal in the Massachusetts 1st congressional district. Neal is one of the most powerful members of the House, but due to his initial unwillingness/reluctance to impeach Trump for absolutely no reason at all, Morse decided that he needed to be replaced. He was endorsed by Justice Democrats, the organization that acts as the puppet master for AOC and Ilhan Omar, and thinks that Nancy Pelosi and crew aren’t radical enough.
This tweet sums up Gay-OC in a nutshell.
I don’t like Richie Neal, but if I lived in Western Mass I’d vote for him because Alex Morse is a pandering child who whines about how oppressed he is because he’s a gay man in the most progressive part of the country. He also blocked me on all social media, is the Mayor of one of the dumpiest small cities in the country, and once sided with a Puerto Rican Holyoke High School student who called all her white classmates racist during a speech at school and put out a hit list.
Oh, and here’s his primary constituency in Holyoke.
The guy kneeling down next to him throwing gang signs with the etch-a-sketch face was arrested shortly after this campaign stop for selling heroin.
Lots and lots of heroin.
Alex Morse apparently can’t keep it in his pants either, and today the UMass College Democrats said that he’s banned from coming near them.
In a letter to Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse on Thursday, the College Democrats of Massachusetts disavowed their groups from the progressive hopeful, alleging that Morse had inappropriate sexual relations with college students before and during his congressional campaign and used “his position of power for romantic or sexual gain.”
“Numerous incidents over the course of several years have shown that it is no longer appropriate to encourage interaction between College Democrats and Alex Morse,” according to the letter, which was provided to the Massachusetts Daily Collegian by a source inside one of the student organizations.
The behavior in question centered on three issues:
The first issue alleges that Morse regularly matched with students on dating apps, including Tinder and Grindr, who were as young as 18 years old. These students included members of the College Democrats of Massachusetts, UMass Amherst Democrats and other groups in the state. The second issue, “Using College Democrats events to meet college students and add them on Instagram, adding them to his ‘Close Friends’ story and DMing them, both of which have made young college students uncomfortable,” according to the letter.
“We have heard countless stories of Morse adding students to his ‘Close Friends Story’ and Direct Messaging members of College Democrats on Instagram in a way that makes these students feel pressured to respond due to his status,” the letter read.
The third issue: “Having sexual contact with college students, including at UMass Amherst, where he teaches, and the greater Five College Consortium.”
In a statement provided to the Daily Collegian Friday evening, Morse admitted to having “consensual adult relationships, including some with college students” and “apologized to anyone I have made feel uncomfortable.”
“I want to be clear that every relationship I’ve had has been consensual. However, I also recognize that I have to be cognizant of my position of power,” Morse said in the statement. “I am committed to meeting with any person or group, including the College Dems, to answer any questions and address any concerns.”
All my love to everyone who has been affected by the predatory behavior and abuse by Alex Morse. There is no acceptable response from him that can justify what he has a pattern of doing.

UMass Democrats are probably as far left as you can possibly get. If they rejected one of the most radical progressive candidates running for congress this year, then Alex Morse has to be the creepiest guy in the country. Don’t get me wrong, his sexuality is bold, brave, and beautiful. But the fact of the matter is that he’s a 31 year old man who seems to target 18 year olds, and he holds a position of power over them as a professor and elected official. If you want to be taken seriously by your base then you can’t go around bottoming for every 18 year old from Southwest to Sylvan.
But in classic Gay-OC style he deflected by whining about his struggles as a gay man in America.
In the statement, Morse referenced the difficulties of growing up gay and closeted, and how he struggled with accepting his identity throughout high school.
“As I’ve become more comfortable with myself and my sexuality, like any young, single, openly gay man, I have had consensual adult relationships, including some with college students,” Morse said. “Navigating life as both a young gay man and an elected official can be difficult, but that doesn’t excuse poor judgment.”
“Alex Morse should know that as an elected official, a high-profile candidate, and a lecturer at a large public university, he holds a position of power over many young people,” the letter said. “Many young people around the state and around the country, especially those involved in College Democrats, view Morse as a role model, which renders it unacceptable for Morse to routinely make sexual or romantic advances, whether implicitly or explicitly.”
The letter made it clear that the decision to sever ties with the mayor was made “regardless of party affiliation or political ideology.”
“Even if these scenarios are mutually consensual, the pattern of Morse using his platform and taking advantage of his position of power for romantic or sexual gain, specifically toward young students, is unacceptable.”
The fact that he’s calling these “consensual” relationships shows that he just doesn’t get what the problem is here. Sure, it’s not rape or even close to being illegal. But you’re running for congress, and the bar should be higher. If you want to have drunken sex with a bunch of barely legal young adults then you should run for the Senate, not the House. These college kids looked up to him politically, and all he saw was a nice piece of meat to beat up on instead of the beaten down beefcake in P-Town.
If he had done it with just one student it would be one thing, but clearly this guy made his way around town. And that about sums up the difference between Justice Democrats and Democrats. Justice Democrats are children with crazy ideas that aren’t going anywhere. Regular Democrats are power hungry millionaires that know how to get legislation passed but aren’t afraid to throw on a Kente cloth to virtue signal when the time’s right.
