It has been pointed out that Mitt Romney did not fear Trump’s wrath for his vote to convict for the reasons that he’s more popular in his state than Trump is and he’s not coming up for reelection for another few years. The same could be said about Lisa Murkowski as well. However, she didn’t vote to convict. Perhaps this explains why.

There are a lot of stories in the news lately about the Trump campaign buying votes. Maybe this is one more of them. Food for thought, in any event. McConnell knows how to keep his caucus in line. He’s found dark money for Susan Collins and it looks like he’s got his wife Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao on board to show Murkowski who butters her bread.

The question that needs to be asked (on camera) to her multiple times this coming week is: “Did McConnell, or if not him then someone from his wife’s office or the WH discuss the modernization project with you prior to your impeachment votes? And if so was there any discussion regarding anything having to do with funding?” The video should be sent to every TV outlet in Alaska, and it should also be put on social media by people up there who thought they had kept a Senator with a sense of independence and instead got what she has become.… Read more »

I got put in Twitter jail for calling her a prostitute. I said that she and Susan Collins were worse than whores because they sold something that wasn’t theirs to sell…America. Totally worth it, though. This has to stop. Those states must be shamed into taking action. Maybe we need to boycott red states. I live in one but we’ve told friends not to visit or vacation here. I told a few that were looking at colleges here that they were nuts to send a kid here. The police are out of control, it’s an open-carry state and conditions for… Read more »

I don’t do twitter, but I do think it is best to avoid sexual references when discussing issues.

Twitter doesn’t approve of sexual comments – even if you’re talking about someone who’s been dead for a couple of centuries.

I mean that we should avoid irrelevant sexual comments everywhere, not just twitter.

Perhaps more importantly, was she offered this to vote against witnesses? The outcome was a foregone conclusion, but witnesses would have been very damning and damaging. They are despicable, disgusting, deplorable.

I’ve seen a little reporting that suggests Susan Collins also got a similar legalized bribe for Maine housing projects in terms of funding. I swear, these people don’t understand the concept of a cover-up at all.

She got over 9 MILLION.

She got 63 million from Chao after her vote for Kavanaugh.

Is this a fact? I would like to know more about this. I’d like to know if it all came from Chao.

Sorry…it was 61 million for Maine roads and bridges from Elaine Chao’s DOT. Curious that Susan Collins turned into a rabid Kavanaugh supporter following a private lunch with Mitch McConnell. Remember her condescending, vitriolic, long-winded press conference before the vote? It was a posting by a Maine voter on another site.

It sad when we even have to ask the question did they this or that. I’m a simple person and looking in the window and watching them pass the money around the room and we knew they couldn’t keep quiet. This is to say out loud we don’t care about you little peons well do what we want SEE. Oh god the election can’t fast enough. I’m tried of watching this senate keep laughing at us. It’s them that’s keeping this puke in office so they are the ones who are trying to make the country a dictatorship.

Municipal leaders say the Port Infrastructure Development Program grant is on top of a $25 million Better Utilizing Investment to Leverage Development grant DOT awarded last November. I have always known that behavior speaks louder than words… shame on you for selling your vote!

No, real politics shouldn’t work like this.

“this for that” is how all contracts work. the question is whether this particular “this for that” is illegal.

If that was legal I am the king of Persia. Just how many times are they going to let these two give money to the people that they need to enrich. His wife just gave 94 million dollars to some less qualified but important constituents in Kentucky. Supposed to be under investigation but since McConnell and Barr are but buddies that probably didn’t last as long as a fart in a wind tunnel.

Eyes on the ball, I’m still waiting for the sneaky hat trick the republicans are going to pull and that is dropping the sanctions on Russia to get in on that 7 Trillion dollar oil reserve money that I’m certain Putin promised tRump.

If they could have, they would have.

The grant could very well be unrelated, but given the stupid reason she gave for voting against witnesses (because Schiff quoted a CBS report that basically implied that Republicans will vote against witness because they are too scared to vote for witnesses), she, the so-called independent who cannot be bought, will forever be under a cloud of suspicion. Souls seem to be on sale at a discount these days.
