The Dishonesty of Susan Collins

UN Ambassador Susan Rice arrives for a meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington with Sen. Susan Collins R Maine and Sen. Corker R-Tenn. to discuss the Benghazi terrorist attack

The short tweet - which came less than an hour after Collins, a Maine Republican, announced she would vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court - caught national and state Democrats by surprise. At some of those parties, she alleged, Kavanaugh was "fondling and grabbing girls without their consent" and, along with others, spiking drinks to force girls to lose their inhibitions.

Where they saw opposition to Obamacare in his rulings, she saw a careful judge whose reasoning that the Affordable Care Act was a use of Congress' taxing power closely mirrored the logic that Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. would later use to declare the 2010 health care law mostly constitutional. "I do believe that she was assaulted".

One point on which both Collins and Hirono appeared to agree, curiously, was that Kavanaugh's installment on the Supreme Court is unlikely to lead to overturning Roe v. Wade.

Sen. Susan Collins: "Mr. President, I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh".

One incensed voter left a voicemail for Collins in which he repeatedly screamed insults while wondering how Collins could accept Kavanaugh's statement that he considers Roe v. Wade to be "settled law" when he was "handpicked by the Federalist Society specifically to overturn" that decision.

Collins told the Senate: 'To my knowledge, Judge Kavanaugh is the first Supreme Court nominee to express the view that precedent is not only a practice and a tradition, but rooted in Article 3 of our constitution itself'.

Susan Collins called Dr. Ford a liar today on television.

Collins questioned Rice's connection to ME, saying Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that although Rice's family has a home in ME, "she doesn't live in the state of Maine".

Gideon, who's often clashed with outgoing Republican Gov. Paul LePage, said she's focused on winning more Democratic seats in the Maine House for now.

"As I watch numerous Senators speak and vote on the floor of the Senate I feel like I'm right back at Yale where half the room is laughing and looking the other way".

"I found Dr. Ford's testimony to be heart-wrenching, painful, compelling, and I believe that she believes what she testified to", she said.

Seacoastonline.com reported in 2015 that Rice has ties to Maine. She gave an impassioned, lovely speech yesterday.

Sweet said a big factor would be whether Collins, 65, decides to run at all.

Over the weekend, a Crowdpac page raised more than $1 million for a hypothetical opponent should Collins seek reelection in 2020. And because it was created to directly influence her vote, the legality may be dicey.

We're already starting to get an idea of who might challenge Collins in 2020.

"It's too soon to say what I might do", Hannah Pingree told the AP.

"The most hard in the 22 years I've been honored to represent the State of Maine in the United States Senate".

Now, Halsted said, Collins' constituents are "ready to support a senator from Maine who is going to stand up for Mainers and do what's right for the country, regardless of political party-and I think people realize Susan Collins is not that senator".
