We knew this day was coming. But I don’t think even I was prepared for the disgraced former U.S. congressman to be spreading his cheeks in such a way that would surely titilate people on both sides of the aisle.
Me personally I am not impressed. Besides imagine who in the Republican party has been there before. UGH.
Sen. Cory Booker,said Thursday that he was ready to risk expulsion from the Senate to expose the “sham” of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Booker, backed up by Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, released emails — designated by the Judiciary Committee as “confidential” — that reference Kavanaugh’s position on racial profiling and thoughts on Roe v. Wade dating from his time as a White House official under President George W. Bush.
“I understand the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate. … I openly invite and accept the consequences of my team releasing that email right now. Bring it.” Booker said.
Later in the meeting all the Democrats on the committee supported Booker’s decision and invited any retaliation the GOP could bring forth in the Senate.
Blowhard GOP Sen. John Cornyn said before Booker released the documents that if he went ahead, he would be committing an offense that would be tantamount to releasing classified information.
“Running for president is not an excuse for violating the rules of the Senate,” the Texas Republican told Booker. “No senator deserves to sit on this committee, or serve in the Senate in my view, if they decide to be a law unto themselves and willingly flout the rules of the Senate.”
Booker said he doubted Cornyn would follow through on his threats.
“I think he’s like a lot of bullies are: a lot of talk no action.”
Scott Baiois now being accused of physical an possible sexual abuse by Charles in Charge co-star Alexander Polinsky who has retained attorney Lisa Bloom to represent him
Polinsky is the second Baio accuser to emerge following “Charles in Charge” star Nicole Eggert, who has also alleged Baio sexually abused her as a minor. Eggert is also represented by Bloom.
Polinsky will speak out at a press conference on Wednesday, which Eggert will also attend.
Last week Nicole Eggert appeared on an episode of The Talk and Alexander released a statement to back up her claims and add his own.
“Working on the set of Charles in Charge from age 11 to 15 was no picnic, it was a toxic environment,” he said. “I witnessed Scott Baio acting inappropriately towards Nicole Eggert during my first year of working on the show. I walked in on them together behind the set. Nicole was on Scott‘s lap and he did not appreciate my intrusion. He yelled at me and called me various homophobic slurs. Growing up on the show I received regular verbal attacks, mental abuse and I also suffered a physical assault at the hands of Scott Baio.”
2012 Romney Presidential race advisor Glenn Hubbard appeared on MSNBC to talk about “the fiscal cliff” and the shape of our country financially. But when Hubbard started talking about the “welfare state” a piece of the MSNBC set mysteriously fell and hit him.
You know it’s bad when inanimate objects know you are full of shit and retaliates.
