On Friday, when Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced her support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, ensuring that he would receive the votes required for confirmation, a Google executive tweeted an ominous message about America’s system of government. He also joined an effort to bribe a U.S. senator.
“Abolish the Senate,” tweeted Ken Norton, a former project manager at Google and currently a partner at GV — formerly Google Ventures — the company that directs the venture capital investments for Alphabet, Google’s parent company. Norton has been at Google for 12 years.
Democratic Arizona Rep. Tom O’Halleran said Monday that Democrats went “too far” during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“I don’t like it, I never did like it when people got up there and pontificated time and time again about their position,” he continued. “This is supposed to be about a discussion back and forth between you and the nominee.”
O’Halleran’s statement comes just a week after a poll showed that roughly 49 percent of Arizona likely voters wanted Kavanaugh confirmed compared with 42 percent opposing, according to The Arizona Republic.
I’m guessing O’Halleran has his ear much closer to the ground than someone like, say, Tom Perez.
