Sen Gillibrand, the crusader
Sen. Gillibrand of New York led a passionate campaign to get Sen Franken out of the US Senate. Now, she has been exposed as crawling to Donald Trump to get campaign money. I am confused here. If Sen Franken was such a horrible sexual molester as claimed by some dubious reports a few weeks ago, then why is Sen Gillibrand going to a confessed sexual molester for campaign money?
Does the dear Senator Gillibrand think that Trump is less guilty because he is wealthy? And as a result his sexual transgressions can be forgiven. Transgressions which go back decades as opposed to Franken's. Franken by the way, has never had the opportunity to defend himself or been the subject of an investigation. Or is this just another case of gross HYPOCRISY?
Sen. Gillibrand who was been nothing more than a Blue Dog Democrat before arriving in the Senate has made her claim to fame campaigning against sexual assault in the military and has sponsored legislation on that behalf which has gone nowhere.
Republican strategist, Steve Schmidt, has suggested that Sen. Gillibrand is now the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. I respect Schmidt but I would never vote for a candidate who railroaded a colleague out of the Senate on flimsy accusations and denied him due process. Also, I don't like Blue Dog Democrats who I consider nothing more than gutless politicians and are easily bought off, like asking Donald Trump for money.
