Claire McCaskill attacks Brett Kavanaugh on campaign reform and free speech

Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill is going to vote “no” on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, but not for the allegations of sexual assault.

No, McCaskill takes issue with his record on campaign donations, free speech and, in a bizarre twist, Russia.

“He has revealed his bias against limits on campaign donations which places him completely out of the mainstream of this nation,” McCaskill wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “He wrote, ‘And I have heard very few people say that limits on contributions to candidates are unconstitutional although I for one tend to think those limits have some constitutional problems.’”

She then stated that Kavanaugh would “give free reign [sic] to anonymous donors and foreign governments through their citizens to spend money to interfere and influence our elections with so-called ‘issue ads” and tied him to Russia, stating that a Russian company “indicted for election interference is currently using Judge Kavanaugh’s opinion to argue for their innocence.”

McCaskill said she was “uncomfortable about his view on Presidential power as it relates to the rule of law, and his position that corporations are people” but that his support of “unlimited donations and dark anonymous money, from even foreign interests” was the “determining factor” in her decision to vote against him.

In the most recent poll, McCaskill is trailing her GOP opponent Josh Hawley by 3%. Full details HERE
