Opponents vow Sen. Collins will pay price for Kavanaugh vote

As the decision looms anti Kavanaugh demonstrators weigh on a Maine senator’s tiny staff 'Saturday Night Live' opens with skit featuring Sen. Susan Collins impression

On Sunday, Collins told reporters in ME that she was receiving positive feedback for her vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

As what might be considered the first truly "illegitimate justice" on the Court, Fallon continued, Kavanaugh's confirmation "will mark a point of no return for the Supreme Court's reputation as the one, apolitical branch" of the USA government.

Kavanaugh replaces retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative jurist who often cast the deciding swing vote on ideologically divisive issues, upholding abortion and gay rights and the use of affirmative action aiding racial minorities in college admissions.

"Her family has been through a lot", Debra Katz said.

Hirono was not alone in her concerns about Collins' speech on the Senate floor on Friday and the decision to vote for Kavanaugh. She said it was deleted several times and one person sent a link to the Rick Astley song "Never gonna give you up," an internet prank known as "rickrolling".

"I do not believe Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant", Collins added.

"Something happened to Dr. Ford".

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, the lone Democrat to vote for Kavanaugh, faces a potential revolt from his own party's liberal base in his immediate re-election test in November. "The last 20 so years I've been a home owner in the state of Maine, so it's not completely insane", she said. We live in a society that does not believe women. "She has betrayed women across this country". A crowdsourcing group says it has secured pledges of more than $3 million for her opponent in 2020. Lisa Murkowski, as Senate Republicans who could potentially vote against Trump's Supreme Court pick.

Her constituents in ME have taken notice, raising some four million dollars for her eventual 2020 opponent. "I don't believe that the facts show it was Brett Kavanaugh", Sen.

Collins and her staff have said the aggressive tactics to sway her vote are a wasted effort. Instead, she told Pelley, she found the opposite: No one beyond Ford had a recollection of the night in question.

Dr. Blasey Ford talked about how the first few years at Carolina were hard for her-that her attack at the age of fifteen had lasting implications. There were many lessons that we learned from Dr. Blasey Ford's testimony on September 27, 2018, and one of the most important ones was that any one of us can be extraordinary through the ordinary act of speaking our truth.

Her choice is so disappointing because her Republican colleagues-the McConnells and Grassleys and Grahams of the world, who long ago turned into cartoonish, misogynist supervillains-are honest about who they are and what they want. "That is hardly what I would call exoneration", said Hirono, citing a statement by Ford that she had talked about the alleged assault to her spouse and to others and that she had taken a lie detector test.
