the beginnings of the 'nasty':


“A Republican source told the Daily Beast (https://www.thedailybeast.com/far-right-smear-merchants-jacob-wohl-and-jack-burkman-try-to-slime-pete-buttigieg-with-bogus-sex-assault-claim) that lobbyist Jack Burkman and internet troll Jacob Wohl approached him last week to try to convince him to falsely accuse Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, of engaging him sexually while he was too drunk to consent.”

“The source who spoke to The Daily Beast said Burkman and Wohl made clear that their goal was to kneecap Buttigieg’s momentum in the 2020 presidential race. The man asked to remain anonymous out of a concern that the resulting publicity might imperil his employment, and because he said Wohl and Burkman have a reputation for vindictiveness.”

“But the source provided The Daily Beast with a surreptitious audio recording of the meeting, which corroborates his account.”

I do hope the law comes down on this piece of dirt like a……………. oh yes, your top two law officers likely approve, and the SC is probably 'unsafe' on the matter.

'zactly. It's a fine mess we've gotten ourselves into. Once upon a time, people went to jail for doing this sort of thing - but it's just a normal thing now - in some news outlets for an hour or 2 & then ignored.

The Republican playbook is about corruption. Honorable Republicans will denounce this loudly and clearly by rejecting all dealings with Burkman, as if that were going to happen. A useful capsule of his crazy evil can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Burkman

Are there any honourable republicans left in office? I thought they all decided to retire or were voted out by teapublicans?

Do you think you have standing to decry slime attacks?

I was going to say that I hope this story gets out and is listened to...

This isn't Wohl's first go at sliming, if you don't recall the name run it through Google.

An arrest by who? trump’s DOJ? With Barr in control? Not likely.

If the focus is on policy, the 'Republicans' lose.

A republican anonymous source, now that's liberal credibility of the finest kind, surreptitious, yeah, right.

With audio recording. You forgot to mention that. If it looks like a horse...it probably is a horse.

And if it looks like a horse's ass . . .
