Activists Raise Over $800,000 So Susan Collins Won't Support Kavanaugh

Kamala Harris pushes deceptively edited video to smear Brett Kavanaugh. But here’s the truth

Harris, of course, can't just say she was wrong to smear Kavanaugh for something he may not believe (we don't know how he feels about birth control or "abortion-inducing" drugs).

Republicans now hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate and only 51 votes are required to confirm Kavanaugh.

Collins told the AP that she hasn't made up her mind yet.

This month's Supreme Court confirmation hearings have highlighted deeply held fears that abortion rights are in danger. Ms. Collins has said she wants assurances that Judge Kavanaugh sees Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that made abortion a constitutional right, to be settled law.

Pro-abortion activists are using the mail system to send pro-abortion Republican Susan Collins a dramatic protest against Judge Brett Kavanaugh's potential confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Collins insisted that this effort will not influence her vote.

Every Democrat should be condemning these antics in Maine- attempting to bribe Senator Collins to vote against Judge Kavanaugh and threatening sexual violence against staffers if she votes for him is absolutely disgusting.

"The people of ME are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins", reads the campaign's description. Although PAC money and donations do not provide an ultimatum like this crowdfunding campaign does, certainly donors typically have expectations when they give a large amount of money to someone running for political office.

All six of Collins' offices in ME are receiving letters, emails, visitors and a high volume of phone calls and voicemails about Kavanaugh and Collins herself.

Despite the threats and attempts of "bribery", Marie Follayttar Smith, a director of Mainers for Accountable Leadership, defended her group's efforts to pressure Collins, the New York Times reported.

"Your card will only be charged if Collins votes for Kavanaugh's confirmation, " the listing noted.

Another Senate Democrat who voted for Gorsuch and is seeking reelection in 2018 is Indiana's Joe Donnelly.

Collins has said she was encouraged by Kavanaugh's statements that he considers Roe v. Wade to be "settled law" and "precedent upon precedent".

"The intensity on Collins and Murkowski is rising", he said, "but I think we have an even better shot of making them feel the heat if more Democrats would come out and express opposition, and create a dynamic like there was on health care, where it was clear that Collins and Murkowski would be the deciders".
