George Conway maxes out on campaign contribution to Dem opponent of Elise Stefanik after calling GOP lawmaker ‘lying trash’

Published

on

On Saturday, conservative lawyer George Conway tweeted sharp criticism of Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) for deliberately breaking House procedural rules and then complaining that Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) was refusing to let her speak — an act that was widely considered to be a stunt for attention from right-wing media.

Conway, the husband of counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and a frequent critic of the Trump administration, referred to Stefanik as “lying trash” and exhorted people to donate to her 2020 Democratic opponent Tedra Cobb — while donating the maximum allowed contribution himself.

‘It’s really shameful’: Speaker Pelosi blasts US Supreme Court for Wisconsin decision ‘undermining our democracy’

'5-4 Surprise, Surprise'

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi blasted the U.S. Supreme Court Monday night, just hours after conservative justices in a 5-4 decision not only blocked the governor of Wisconsin from halting his state's election tomorrow, but changed a lower court's decision and gave voters less time to return absentee ballots.

The Speaker, apparently appearing from her San Francisco home on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show," berated the right wing majority justices, who she says are now "undermining our democracy" by not allowing the election to be postponed until June.

Democracy is on the line, and the Democratic Party must stand up for its namesake.

On Tuesday, Wisconsin voters will be called to vote in one of the most disgraceful and flat-out dangerous electoral shams this country has seen in recent history. Despite the efforts of the Democratic governor to delay the vote and a federal court to extend the deadline for turning in absentee ballots — many of which may not arrive at voters’ homes by election day — Wisconsin residents will be expected to case their ballots Tuesday amid a pandemic or forever hold their peace. Howls about the injustice of asking people to vote in person during such a perilous time, and while the state is under a stay-at-home order, have gone unheeded by the Republican state legislature, the Republican-controlled state Supreme Court, or the Republican-controlled U.S. Supreme Court.

Justice Ginsburg sends out dire warning about the new Supreme Court ruling in Wisconsin election case

Published

on

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg issued a disturbing dissent on Monday as the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court intervened in Tuesday’s upcoming Wisconsin election with a move she warned could result in “massive disenfranchisement.”

The election, which includes the Democratic presidential primary, a Wisconsin Supreme Court race, and a raft of other local campaigns, has become embroiled in controversy as observers warn the coronavirus pandemic threatens the safety and integrity of the election. While Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has pushed to delay the election until June in light of the pandemic, the Republican-dominated legislature has refused to act, apparently believing the chaos caused by the crisis will depress turnout and benefit the GOP.
