Until now, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins has been quiet regarding the harassment she went through during the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Now she is describing it and it will shock you.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Hazmat suits, stalkers, and rape threats: Susan Collins describes harassment leading up to Kavanaugh vote
On Oct. 5, weeks after the first unverified allegation of sexual abuse came out against Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, announced she would vote to confirm the conservative judge to the Supreme Court.
The Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh the next day, Collins’ vote clinching him the necessary support…
“It was unlike anything I have seen in all the years that I’ve been privilege to serve in the Senate,” Collins told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum. “There was an envelope that arrived a few days after the ricin envelop and letter that had white powder in it. And fortunately the postal service inspector did a great job at intercepting it. And you have to treat everything like that seriously. It said, ‘Anthrax; ha, ha, ha.’ … My husband and our dog and parts of our house had to be quarantine.”
She continued, adding that “hazmat teams [were] brought in. But what was even worse was what was done to my staff. They had to be subjected to all sorts of abuse. A 25-year-old case worker on my staff who deals with social security problems and the VA and immigration answered a call in which the man told her that if I voted yes for Justice Kavanaugh that he hoped that she would be raped and impregnated.”
Wait until Ruth Bader Ginsburg retires or passes away. It’ll make the Kavanaugh hearings look mild by comparison.
