Kavanaugh Protesters Pepper Sen. Collins With 'Vulgar' Threats

Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) toward joining them.

The harassment campaign from the far Left against Susan Collins-including threats of sexual violence against her staffers and potential illegal bribery-is truly shameful, and shows the desperation of the radicals to try to stop the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh. "Your swing vote could decide whether a rubber stamp for Trump's anti-healthcare, anti-woman, anti-labor agenda gets confirmed to the Supreme Court-costing millions of Americans their healthcare, their right to choose, and their lives". She hasn't indicated how she might vote.

Sen. Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzBeto O'Rourke's mom hits the campaign trail in Texas Senate race GOP spends big on ads to defend Senate majority McConnell: Election will be "very challenging" for Senate Republicans MORE (R-Texas) blamed the "far Left" in a tweet for a "harassment campaign" against the moderate ME senator, calling the comments toward Collins and her staff "truly shameful" and an example of "the desperation of the radicals to try to stop" Kavanaugh's confirmation. Murkowski has not said whether she will vote for or against Trump's nominee, but if her vote for Gorsuch is any indication, pressure from the GOP will outweigh pressure from pro-choice groups.

The activists have stated they intend to return the funds to donors if Senator Collins votes against Mr Kavanaugh. Ethics expert Adav Noti at the Campaign Legal Center, however, tells the Washington Post that the campaign appears to be an attempt to do an end-run around federal bribery laws.

The Boston Globe said in an editorial yesterday: "Kavanaugh's obvious hostility to abortion rights is alarming".

Belgium earned a comfortable win over Iceland thanks to a pair of goals by Romelu Lukaku and one from Eden Hazard. The UEFA Nation's League match between Spain and Croatia will be broadcast live on ESPN2 and Univision Deportes.

"We've had some very abusive callers", Steve Abbot, Collins's chief of staff, told an NBC affiliate in Maine. I'm so naive.' F*** you.

"This effort will not influence my vote at all", Collins said.

And in a letter sent to her Portland, Maine office, the writer on August 9 says that "EVERY waitress who serves you is going to spit in your food, and that's if you're lucky, you f***ing c***!" She already backed Kavanaugh once, when he was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals by George W. Bush in 2006, and she has been sending strong signals that she will back him again this time around.

"The intensity on Collins and Murkowski is rising", he said, "but I think we have an even better shot of making them feel the heat if more Democrats would come out and express opposition, and create a dynamic like there was on health care, where it was clear that Collins and Murkowski would be the deciders".

That doesn't sound like someone who is impressed by the Democrats' disgusting antics.
