Democrats Who Voted Against Kavanaugh Have Major Regrets After Midterm Elections

Democrats Who Voted Against Kavanaugh Have Major Regrets After Midterm Elections

Published

On Wednesday morning, after all of the hoopla from the midterm elections, every single incumbentDemocrat senator who voted against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court was curled up in the fetal position bawling their eyes out.

Why?

Because they all lost their bids for reelection. Every. Single. One.

The senate race in Montana is still too close to call, but it looks like Republican Matt Rosendale will eke out a victory. Incumbent Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat, voted against Kavanaugh in October after the judge was accused without evidence of teenage sexual misconduct.

In Indiana, Republican Mike Braun defeated incumbent Democrat Sen. Joe Donnelly. Donnelly had voted yes on President Donald Trump’s first Supreme Court nomination, Neil Gorsuch, but said he would vote “no” on Kavanaugh.

“I have deep reservations about Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to this lifetime position and, as I stated, we have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination, despite my best efforts,” Donnelly said at the time. “Only 113 people have ever served on the Supreme Court, and I believe that we must do our level best to protect its sanctity.”

Donnelly also said the allegations against Kavanaugh were “disturbing and credible” and he wanted the FBI to investigate. The FBI did investigate and found no evidence to support the allegedly credible allegations.

This pattern also occurred with Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota. She voted for Gorsuch but against Kavanaugh despite a majority of voters in her state wanting Kavanaugh confirmed. Heitkamp announced she would vote “no” on Kavanaugh after watching his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the accusations against with the sound off.

Heitkamp was ousted by GOP candidate Kevin Cramer. Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill lost to Republican challenger Josh Hawley.

It’s looking like Florida Sen. Bill Nelson — also a Democrat who voted against Kavanaugh — will be defeated by Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

There is one outlier to all of this: In Nevada, Democrat Jacky Rosen defeated incumbent Republican Sen. Dean Heller, who voted for Kavanaugh. Nevada is not a Red State, however.

What happened to Brett Kavanaugh was nothing short of a witch hunt designed to both ruin his life and attempt to give Democrats an opportunity to install another liberal supreme court justice.

Thankfully, that didn’t happen.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
