So a left wing group has been raising money and telling Susan Collins they will fund her opponent in 2020 if she doesn’t vote to block Kavanaugh. Among other things this group claims Kavanaugh will “instantly” take away the rights of LGBTQ and of course overturn Roe vs Wade.
This is Susan Collins’ response to the bribery, and I think it’s brilliant. Besides that, even if she does vote no (which seems to be highly unlikely to say the least) this group will be raising money to defeat her in two years anyway.
“I consider this quid pro quo fundraising to be the equivalent of an attempt to bribe me to vote against Judge Kavanaugh.
“If I vote against him, the money is refunded to the donors. If I vote for him, the money is given to my opponent for the 2020 race,” she said.
She emphasized “this effort will not influence my vote at all,” adding, “I think it demonstrates the new lows to which the judge’s opponents have stooped.”
That’s correct, and the left should have known their hysteria and ridiculous claims about Kavanaugh weren’t going to change Collins or Murkowski’s minds about him.
