groppet: Fundraising in Europe? Unless she is meeting US citizens isn't that illegal? Even then it seems shady AF. But hey what does she care laws don't matter anymore and she wants in on the grift.


Remember when the entire Republican Senate just picked up and went to Russia on July 4th?  "Shady as fark" isn't really a standard anymore.

Maybe she's meeting with some liberal expats in Italy who agreed to donate as long as she supports Democratic priorities...

Nah, it's some drug company or oil BS. We all know it.

berylman: Seriously some enterprising forensic accounting/ hacker/ private investigator needs to do a deep dive into her finances
There is no way in hell she is not getting bought, the only question is who is buying her


The "who" isn't going to be a huge revelation. "For how little" is what would be the big surprise.

She went from like 35k in 2018 to "I can go to Europe at the drop of hat whenever and hang out at vineyards all day with my donor peeps" money in 2 1/2 years in office.   The official "net worth" appears to be about a million dollars now, which means you are exactly right.  The drug companies bought her for pocket lint.

In the U.S., the Green Party is a subsidiary of the Republican Party. Follow the money.

Sinema and Manchin are the new Lieberman and Ben Nelson, fifth columnists who have been bought and paid for by the wealthy to sabotage any form of progress for working families.

Dear Republicans,

Take notes on this thread.

Left-leaning voters aren't afraid to criticize a member of their own party when that member acts like a bonehead.

They're not twisting themselves into mental knots to defend her and pretend that she can do no wrong, they're giving legitimate criticism where it's due.

You can do it toward members of your own party too. All it requires is a little bit of backbone.

Shaggy_C: ...we Republicans will keep winning, thanks.


No.

No you won't.

You'll lose again, you'll claim that you won, and you'll just perpetuate your cycle of dishonesty to hide the fact that Republicans don't actually have any policy to stand behind, other than being obstructiinists toward the party that's actually still trying to serve the people in good faith.

Paris and London don't seem like very hip, cool places for a trendy senator who likes fashionable things to visit. She seems more like a Budapest or Ljubljana type.

The DSCC sent her on a fundraising trip after all the shiat she has pulled.

That answers the question. What is more important, money or loyalty?

When I fundraise for MY Arizona senate campaign, Europe is the first place I'm gonna go.  Oh, they won't donate to ME.  They'll pass it through the NRA, US Chamber of Commerce, the Club for Growth, The Heritage Foundation:  you know, anybody who wants to be on the right end of the gun when it happens.

It was eight GOP Senators but your point stands, there is no regard for keeping things above boards.

Should be illegal. Probably was. Now, I doubt it. Farewell to the democratic republic.

You're assuming that Greens would vote if there weren't greens. Greens: The politically active wing of political non-participation.

Wonder how many of them voted for MTG.  It's, like, right there in her NAME, man!
