The Dishonesty of Susan Collins

Collins: I did what I thought was right The $3 Million Crowdfunding Effort To Unseat Sen. Collins In 2020

Less than an hour has passed since the ME senator's announcement and one Twitter user posed the question, "who wants to run for Senate in ME?" Now, Alaska GOP officials are considering whether to seek a replacement or encourage her not to seek re-election as a Republican when her term expires in 2022. The effort's new fundraising goal is $4 million.

Rice, who also served as the US ambassador to the United Nations under Obama, said she appreciated the enthusiasm about her potential run, but said people who are angry about Kavanaugh should focus on the midterm elections. A crowdsourcing group says it has secured pledges of more than $3 million for her opponent in 2020.

While her vote spurred criticism, Collins was cheered by Republicans including past and former presidents.

Lundy, who practices law in Brookline, said she normally comes to Maines once or twice a year to shop the outlet stores but that is ending due to what she called Collins' "intellectual and moral dishonesty". So, we come here so she can see what our concerns are and how we feel about what she's doing. "If Democrats regain power in either chamber of Congress, they must resolve to reopen the investigations that Republicans refused to conduct and demand the documents that the Trump White House worked to hide".

According to lawyer Sandra Lundy, who lives in neighboring MA, she is not only boycotting the state - she is actively campaigning for others to join her. On Sunday, Rice said shell decide after the midterm elections whether to run for the Senate from ME in 2020. "She has betrayed women across this country", Rice charged. "So it was on that basis that I decided I would think about it". She gave an impassioned, handsome speech yesterday. Her grandmother, Mary Dickson, a maid and seamstress, was named Maine State Mother of the Year in 1950. Rice's great-uncles all graduated from Maine's Bowdoin College.


Of those Republicans who voted in his favor, Fallon concluded, "this will be a career-defining decision they will never live down". People took to social media, urging others not to support Maine's economy while Collins still serves as Maine's USA senator, some even using #boycottmaine.

Upon her arrival in her home state, the newspaper reported, "Police escorted her off the flight separate from other passengers after it landed at Bangor International Airport, avoiding about 20 protesters at the airport terminal".

Halpert doesn't like Collins "at all", and pointed to Rice's long roots in the state.

Ho said she did not expect the level of "trolling" she's had with the petition. "Her testimony prompted countless women to share their own stories of sexual harassment and assault".
