    A prominent donor to the Democratic Party says she is considering withdrawing support for senators who urged their colleague Al Franken to resign after he was accused of sexual misconduct. The donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, has been one of the Democratic Party’s most generous supporters for decades. In particular, she has been a champion of female politicians, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Maria Cantwell of Washington. Last month, those senators were among the dozens who called for Franken to resign from the Senate after at least six women accused him of sexual harassment...

    Left-wing political operatives and Hillary Clinton backers David Brock and Susie Tompkins Buell bankrolled $700,000 allegedly to find people who would accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct before Election Day 2016. Brock’s American Bridge 21st Century Foundation and Buell, a major donor to the foundation, reportedly donated the six-figure sums to Lisa Bloom’s law firm, which specializes in sexual harassment allegations against public figures, according to a report from the New York Times.

    Partisan politics have long taken hold of the sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump, according to a Sunday New York Times report. Multiple donors who funded lawsuits against the president in hopes of holding him accountable for his alleged misdeeds were identified. Among them was Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of the Esprit clothing brand. She is a close personal friend of Hillary Clinton and a prominent donor of her campaign. Buell also donated to Bill Clinton's first presidential campaign, after speaking with him at an event in 1991. “They asked me what I wanted,” she told the Los...

    ne of Hillary Clinton’s wealthy pals paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women willing to accuse President Trump of sexual misconduct before the 2016 election, The New York Times reported Sunday. Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of Esprit Clothing and a major Clinton campaign donor for many years, gave the money to celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom who was working with a number of Trump accusers at the time, according to the paper’s bombshell report. Bloom solicited donors by saying she was working with women who might “find the courage to speak out” against Trump if the donors would...

    Meet the woman JPMorgan Chase paid one of the largest fines in American history to keep from talking By Matt Taibbi | November 6, 2014 "It was like watching an old lady get mugged on the street," she says. "I thought, 'I can't sit by any longer.'" Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing. Back in 2006, as a...

    A document filed in federal court this week by the Justice Department offers new evidence that former vice president Richard B. Cheney helped steer the Bush administration's public response to the disclosure of Valerie Plame Wilson's employment by the CIA and that he was at the center of many related administration deliberations. The administration's discussion of Wilson's link to the CIA was meant to undermine criticism by her husband of administration allegations that Iraq attempted to acquire uranium, a matter that her husband had probed for the CIA, according to testimony presented in a 2007 trial. *snip* He mentioned in...

    The nomination of GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is causing a schism on the feminist left. A group founded by philanthropist Susie Tompkins Buell, a wealthy member of the secretive left-wing Democracy Alliance, accused journalists of sexism in its coverage of Palin and told reporters "to back off," Jonathan Martin of the Politico reports today: WomenCount, a group co-founded by top Hillary [Clinton] fundraiser Susie Tompkins Buell, posted a lengthy item on their blog decrying questions over whether Palin can, as a mother of five, juggle her family responsibilities and still be vice president. "The very notion that Sarah...
  • Buell 1125R - Is this 'the American Sportbike'?

    With Buell’s announcement of the 1125R the company seems set to give reviewers exactly what they asked for – a host of Buell innovations wrapped around a proper liquid cooled engine. The BRP-Rotax engine cranking out a claimed 146hp at the crank, which may not be “set to break the convention of the superbike category”, it certainly fits the “sportbike” descriptor. For Buell though, whose marketing has played the patriotism card in the past, the 1125R’s outsourced engine presents a represents a gamble, namely will the bike be “American” enough to woo the home market? Core to that issue is...
