Skip to comments.New York Magazine: Politically Bribe Senator Susan Collins to Oppose Kavanaugh
Posted on 07/12/2018 6:19:19 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
The opposition to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice has evolved from the merely desperate to the hilariously desperate. A good example of the latter can be seen in the July 10 New York magazine in which writer Ed Kilgore suggests that the Maine Democrats politically bribe Republican Senator Susan Collins with a promise by their state chairman to endorse her when she is up for re-election in 2020.
Perhaps I am old school enough to believe that a bribe should be given in its traditional form as cash wrapped inside a brown paper bag but Kilgore somehow thinks that his political bribe could work as he reveals on July 10 in How Maine Democrats Can Save Roe v. Wade:

If she has any personal self-respect, that should push her the other way.
Democrats and bribes....what a surprise.
in some states under campaign finance laws, an endorsement by a newspaper is considered to be a campaign contribution under the law.......
So they are conspiring to commit a crime
That’s a mighty big “IF”.
What saddens me is what has happened to New York Magazine. Once an excellent publication that celebrated NYC and had the best listings of any NYC magazine or paper. Pathetic.
New York Magazine has really become too precious with their exagurated sense of importance. Still like crossword though.
The Dems will lose more seats this Fall due to their blatantly deceitful tactics.
Given that she crushed her Democratic opponent by 37% in 2014...
The track record would lead them to believe that a RINO would take a bribe.
See Sen. Collins et al? Bushies?
See what they really think of you?
You’re so dishonest, naive and stupid that they advocate bribing you to see things your way?
Given this sort of stuff which seems to grow exponentially, I’d really like to see some investigations into Sessions and Roberts. What makes them decide things that obviously are not in their mindset, and WHO is behind it?
The Hudson County definition of a “honest” politician is, “Once he is bought, he stays bought”...
I thought she was running for Governor ,Oh My what happened ,LOL
Ever the optimist, eh? :-)
Susan Collins is already a better and more consistent democrat than most registered democrats. An official democrat committee endorsing her would be superfluous.
Collins doesn’t have to worry about Democrats when she runs in 2020. She has to worry about the Republican primary.
Well, she IS known for being a whore.
