Wonkette reports that GOP Senator Susan Collins has been grievously hate-crimed WITH SIDEWALK CHALK.
Wonkers, we are deeply concerned. As the Bangor Daily News was first to report, the Maine Republican called the police to report a threatening message written by an unknown person or persons defacing the sidewalk outside her home, an act of gross vandalism that can only be repaired by an afternoon shower or a garden hose.
“Susie, please, Mainers want WHPA —–> vote yes, clean up your mess,” wrote the dastardly criminal, demanding Collins vote for the Women’s Health Protection Act, a federal statute to protect abortion access nationwide before the Supreme Court allows 26 states to ban it altogether. In February Collins voted against allowing the bill to advance for a floor vote.
Presumably the part about her “mess” is a reference to Collins’s votes for Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, all of whom assured her they had the greatest respect for precedent, as if they were not being put on the nation’s court as part of the right’s fifty-year campaign to undo every bit of social progress of the past two generations, with women’s rights to bodily autonomy the grand prize.
