New Jersey’s Senate race has been tighter than expected. Although recent polls by CBS and Quinnipiac show Menendez with a comfortable lead, other outlier polls like one by Stockton University have the race within the margin of error. Now Bob Hugin is using a new tactic: bringing up Menendez’s severe ethical issues.
Senator Bob Menendez just finished an ethics trial with a hung jury over charges that he was taking bribes and traveling to other countries to hire underage prostitutes. Menendez voted against Brett Kavanaugh, saying Christine Ford was “not only to be believed” but was “a hero”. Hugin is now using his own words against him attacking Menendez for hiring underage prostitutes. Menendez’s lawyers argued that the underage prostitution in another country “would hardly be a Federal crime”.
Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill is in trouble after a hidden camera caught her and her staff supporting a ban on all semi-automatic rifles and impeachment. According to her staff, they have to lie about their support in order to get moderate votes in red leaning Louisiana. They also said they would lie to voters after she was elected saying that national security issues prevented them from saying they would support impeachment.
“It’s like we have to lie to get elected”
Here’s the video:
Bill Nelson is another Democrat Senator in trouble. Nelson sent out an email calling for donations to help Hurricane Michael victims. But the link in his email goes to Actblue, a liberal Political Action Committee. Actblue also donates funds to Super PACs which are not legally permitted to coordinate with campaigns or candidates.
Actblue has sent money to several high level Democrats including Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi. They have also funded violent Leftist protest groups. While the funds donated for hurricane relief will likely go to that cause, Nelson’s use of a political PAC to raise funds guarantees that he will get access to their personal information and can solicit further donations or have directed marketing campaigns towards hurricane relief donors. Nelson did not disclose in his email that Actblue was a political PAC. He made it sound like they were a charitable relief organization.
