Senate’s dumbest member surpasses previous dumbness, with a dollop of soliciting election fraud

first_imgThe Senate’s dumbest member is at it again. Sen. Ron “Genius” Johnson of Wisconsin apparently just got wind of the whole Project Veritas fiasco and decided there was gold there. Because he is that stupid.xMy committee has jurisdiction over USPS and the federal workforce. I’m asking anyone who knows of irregularities related to mail-in or absentee ballots to contact our confidential whistleblower hotline: whistleblower@ronjohnson.senate.gov— Senator Ron Johnson (@SenRonJohnson) November 12, 2020- Advertisement – WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 25: Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) delivers opening remarks during a hearing about the recent OPM data breach in the dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill June 25, 2015 in Washington, DC. Office of Personnel Management Director Kathrine Archuleta said that the recent report that 18 million current, former government employees and people who applied for jobs had their personal data stolen is not confirmed and that only 4.2 million records had been breached. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) There actually was U.S. Postal Service (USPS) chicanery at the very top with Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. Remember this pronouncement from Judge Emmet Sullivan after he ordered broad sweeps of postal facilities on Election Day, an order that was ignored by the USPS: “Someone may have a price to pay for that.” He was clear who he meant when he told the Justice Department lawyers who broke the news that his order was disregarded: “It’s your clients. Each and every one of them, starting at the top of the food chain. […] I don’t want you to keep falling on the sword. […] The postmaster’s going to have to be deposed or appear before me,” Sullivan said, adding, “I’m not going to forget it.”center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more
