Collins SLAMS DOWN Groups Who Tried To Buy Her Off, Threatened Her
Susan Collins is being held as a shining example in the groundbreaking Kavanaugh decision, while also taking flak from those on the left for the choice she made.
From Nick Aramas over at YoungConservatives we learn: “Susan Collins … outlined some of the bribes and the threats against her when she appeared on “60 Minutes.”
“Collins blasted the blatant ploy to essentially buy her vote made by a leftist Crowdpac campaign.’”
Fox News provides further details:
“They are asking me to perform an official act and if I do not do what they want, $2 million plus is going to go to my opponent. I think that if our politics has come to the point where people are trying to buy votes and buy positions, then we are in a very sad place,’” Collins told CBS News’ ‘60 Minutes.’”
“The political groups Be A Hero Team, Maine People’s Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership had called out the senator before her vote, with a Crowdpac campaign titled: ‘Either Sen. Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh OR we fund her future opponent.’”
“… The campaign has raised more than $3.5 million and counting.”
“‘This is a classic quid-pro-quo as defined in our bribery laws,’ Collins said in the interview.”
“In response to her ‘60 Minutes’ comments, Be a Hero founder Ady Barkan suggested that Collins was ‘smearing a grassroots effort from regular people pleading with someone in a position of power to do the right thing.’ Mainers for Accountable Leadership co-founder Marie Follayttar added: ‘The idea of Susan Collins attacking an effort by over one hundred thousand… small-dollar donors as bribery is politics at its worst.’”
Aramas: “The deal was if she voted no, they wouldn’t process the money people had donated and if she did vote yes, they would. So yes, pretty clear that it was a quid pro quo action for a vote.”
It seems THEY can’t accept that she did what was right.
