no but they would clearly keep up social pressure, and not relinquish that
@Orteid Thats kind of the point. There isn't even enough evidence to have an investigation so his name will never be clean.
There's not even enough evidence for probable cause. Can't even get a warrant or convene a grand jury.
I'm saying there wouldn't be much point bringing up any kind of charges or civil suit
No limitations. It happened to a minor.
I can't believe this many people are willing to play ball with this CHILD SCREAMING FOR A COOKIE that is the democratic party.
not even enough for preponderance
The fact that we treat their garbage with so much official channel.
I think that was the big mistake yeah
The first person to announce this should've been slapped firmly across the face
"I'm giving you a second chance. What did you just say?"
@Poppy Rider even if they were minors, limitations apply unless it was a federal offense
honestly less even it being "official" moreso it becoming a giant sideshow
in Maryland at least
we look at the potential results matrix and this was the wrong thing to do
I was just reminiscing about our friend Neil Gorsuch, and I found this video from Sen. Whitehouse's own YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx4Ck38wMFc
In which Sen. Whitehouse fails to recognize the distinction between where expressive uses of money, such as political contributions, can be seen to affect politics, and where matters where the government can be seen to have infringed on rights of free expression when it imposes disclosure requirements on otherwise-private expressions, including those inherent in the transfer of funds.
Frankly I think it makes Sen. Whitehouse look a bit thick.
and not in a good way ;- )
not as bad as this made him look <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jw0JsGSnSFE>
For what it's worth, it's kinda all they had
He could just yield his time, but that would probably not look good to his constituents.
It's not like he had anything else to go on.
Did Senator Whitehouse *just so happen* to run unopposed in his most recent elections?
can't imagine there aren't any better options for the people he represents
nobody cares about which senators are produced by RI
With all respect due to Rhode Island
Whitehouse should follow his constituency and roundhouse kick the people he doesn't like
God I hope the red wave is comin'
You only get competitive races when federal parties think that it's worth competing in your state.
this is so fuckin' good
that did happen in RI, right?
Voting should be do-able online.
People are fucking busy.
what am I thinking of then
Something else happened in RI
i will figure this out later
