If a good man turns bad, are we required to pretend, for the rest of his life, that he is still good? Do such a man's earlier good deeds render him strictly off-limits from any and all subsequent criticism until the end of time? Is he entitled to be revered indefinitely as a hero, an icon, or a saint, even if he has spent the past half-century proving himself to be a vile race-baiter, an ally of America's enemies, and a liar who repeatedly bears false witness against his fellow man?
We can answer all these questions by examining the track record of Democratic congressman John Lewis, who has vowed to boycott President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on grounds that Trump is not “a legitimate president.” Incidentally, that was the same rationale Lewis used sixteen years ago, when he likewise boycotted the inauguration of George W. Bush.
