Skip to comments.Blumenthal strikes again … then his staff threatens a reporter for reporting

Senator I served in Vietnam Blumenthal holds his first press conference as a Senator (that didnt take long) to vow he would fight against HR 3, which would prohibit federal funding of abortion.
But instead of letting the subject matter stand on its own and making his position as a defender of womens health he once again finds the need to embelish.
Im new to the Senate but Im not new to this battle, Blumenthal said at a Capitol Hill news conference, his first since taking office. Since the days of Roe v. Wade, when I clerked for Justice Blackmun, as a state legislator, as attorney general, I have fought this battle.
The problem is, Blumenthal clerked for Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun in 1974, the year after Blackmun wrote the Roe v. Wade decision.
Now, I agree with Blumenthals staff, normally this would not be a big story. But this is a new type of Connecticut Democrat and well, the woman who reported the story from the online newspaper ctMirror.org, Deirdre Shesgreen, was then threatened by Blumenthals chief of staff.
Laurie Rubiner, Blumenthals chief of staff, echoed that argument and warned against writing such an incendiary story.
This is a very unfair route you are going down, she said. Well remember this.

I hope Connecticut suffers for sending this evil thug liar to the Senate.
I'll reluctantly give him this one, since the phrase can mean "after, but not inclusive of".
The guy can’t help it. It’s obvious he’s a pathological liar. There’s no need to lie. He’s got six years to go. But once a liar, always a liar. Especially if you’re a dem.
Ha! “A defender of women’s health!”
When more than half of the females are killed in the womb, and a great many young mothers are killed that would have given birth to little girls. (And they would have us tax fund it all)
“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6)
Let him keep talking. The more he talks, the more people see what a jerk he is.
