Susan Collins is the only person in the world who believes Brett Kavanaugh won’t seek to overturn Roe v. Wade. She is either the most disingenuous person alive, or the biggest f’ing moron on the planet. Kavanaugh even wrote, in 2003, that “I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent.”
The right-wing has been downright giddy about destroying Roe v. Wade, but most of them—outside of Trump—have been smart enough not to say something outrageously stupid or too offensive to survivors.
Eric Barber is a rabid, anti-abortion city councilman in Parkersburg, WV. He is also a criminal with multiple arrests, including a stint in jail for breaking and entering. He received parole, but it was revoked following his subsequent arrest on multiple new charges, including “felony counts of fleeing while DUI and attempting to bribe a State Police trooper.”
Just last year, he plead guilty to disorderly conduct, after he recorded a victim being treated in an emergency. When a family member told him that was disrespectful, he became belligerent. He continued to argue even after the police arrived, who took him to the ground and arrested him.
I don’t know who his future Democratic opponent will be, but Parkersburg is in Wood County, WV. The local Dems support candidates at all levels, and I’m sure there’s more than a few decent people who will take on this turnip.
Mad? Good. There are a lot of campaigns to work for, and a little bit of voting to do in November…
