Violent gang rapist John Kavanaugh won confirmation to SCOTUS on Friday when outgoing AZ. Sen. Jeff Flake announced, however regrettably, his support (Sen. Manchin only decided to vote in the affirmative after his opposition was rendered irrelevant by Flake’s announcement).
Many anti-rape Americans were understandably outraged, but look at it from Flake’s perspective:
|If Flake votes NO||
|If Flake votes YES||
The only substantive difference is, by supporting Kavanaugh, Flake gets to pocket a few million in:
- (1) K Street no-show gigs
- (2) GOP think tanks use “donations” to buy his upcoming ghostwritten book in bulk.
I would’ve done the same fucking thing, tbh.
And thus, MFP hereby absolves Jeff Flake for putting a rapist onto SCOTUS. Go get that paper.
Incidentally, would smash…
