Liberal Activists Demand Sen. Collins Vote “NO” on Kavanaugh… or Else

Playing fast and loose with the possibility of an ethics violation, a liberal activist group is attempting to threaten, bribe and perhaps extort Senator Susan Collins into voting “no” on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The issue involves a “crowd-funding” campaign raising money for the exclusive purpose of threatening the Senator from Maine to vote “no” on confirming Kavanaugh to the bench, and if not, the money raised would go to Sen. Collin’s opponent.

As of Tuesday the group has raised just over 1 million dollars and has actually posted their demands on their “Crowdpac” website stating:

“Senator Collins votes NO on Kavanaugh and you will not be charged, and no money will go to fund her future opponent.”

Adding, “Senator Collins votes YES on Kavanaugh and your pledge will go to her opponent’s campaign, once that opponent has been identified.”

According to the Washington Post, Collins described the desperate tactics by leftist extremists as extortion.

Annie Clark speaking on behalf of the senator went on the record regarding the bizarre plot saying:

“And anybody who thinks these tactics would work on Senator Collins obviously doesn’t know her. Senator Collins will make up her mind based on the merits of the nomination. Threats or other attempts to bully her will not play a factor in her decision making whatsoever.”

The tactic employed by the activist group raised quite a few eyebrows, with one ethics expert telling the Washington Post that “it may very well violate federal bribery statutes.”

However, Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibilities, told the Post it doesn’t rise to the level of bribery, “because there’s no agreement.”

Libowitz is perhaps correct in that a bribe requires two likeminded individuals; however “extortion” by legal definition is a different animal.

“Extortion (also called shakedown, outwrestling and exaction) is a criminal offense of obtaining money, property, or services from an individual or institution, through coercion.”

“Coercion is the practice of forcing another party to act in an involuntary manner by use of threats or force.”

Meanwhile, supporter Julie B endorsed the campaign, saying “women will stand together to protect our rights and what is right.”

Moreover, extremist groups like Maine People’s Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership are joining in the campaign to bully Sen. Collin’s to vote “no” on Kavanaugh.

Marie Follayttar, Co-Director of MFAL said, “We, the People of Maine are joining Ady Barkan and thousands of others to demand that Senator Collins votes “no” on Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.”

The eye-popping manifesto on their website demanding Collin’s capitulate reads like a 1950’s Communist decree.

“The people of Maine want to be clear with you, Senator Collins.”

“The pending nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice is a threat to everyday Mainers like us. Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. He is committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh cannot be nominated – he would mean bankruptcy and danger for millions of families in Maine and America.”

“The people of Maine are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins.”

“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 health care, their right to choose, and their lives.”

“If you fail to stand up for the people of Maine and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020.  We will get you out of office.”

“The people of Maine have made it clear that they want you to vote NO on Kavanaugh, and we’re counting on you to do the right thing.”

  1. People need to contact Senator Susan Collins and ask her to vote “YES” on Judge Kavanaugh.

    • Liberals feel senator Collins can can be easily intimidated . Or pushed along w/ them.
      Poor Dr. Ford has issues She suddenly had an idea on how to be a liberal savior , decided to use her profession, expertise, & collaborated w/ a sychiatrist that she had this partial recall , to legitimize her brain storm . One
      Problem her plan doesn’t add up so they thought well let’s get a polygraph
      Test to verify & validate her memory.. Problem being that the mentally ill
      actually believe themselves. Sad. It true.

    • Maybe after the mid term election, some real republicans will come in & Collins and her confused friends will be irrevalent.

      • Poor Senator Collins is weak, and can easily be intimidated. She should vote the way she decides, and NOT because of a bunch of Liberal BULLIES decide how she should vote ! In MY opinion, Judge Kavanaugh SHOULD be confirmed !
