“Bribery” Crowdfunding Campaign Does Not Sway Sen. Collins

Although a crowdfunding campaign got so frenzied on Saturday that it crashed the CrowdPac servers, raising over $3.5 million, Maine Senator Susan Collins voted her conscience.

With the threat of a challenge from a Democrat (perhaps former Obama advisor Susan Rice), Sen. Collins (R) gave a 45 minute speech explaining why she voted for Brett Kavanaugh to fill the empty Supreme Court seat.

The crowdfunding campaign was deemed “bribery” by Collins and did not influence her vote.

And its likely that the Republican National Committee will reward her in 2020 by providing full financial and presidential backing.
