While things were warm and fuzzy for Avenatti when he was Stormy Daniels’ champion and crusader for the #MeToo movement, they have decidedly chilled in the past few months. Democratic strategist Patty Doyle was displeased with Avenatti’s handling of the Kavanaugh hearing, and displeasure with that was widespread, not just limited to Chuck Grassley and members of his committee.
Beto O’Rourke said recently that “Avenatti does not speak for us,” and that seems to be consensus.
Avenatti said he continues to represent Daniels. Hopefully he can continue to do some of the good legal work that he did with Daniels’ NDA, and Karen McDougals’, which brought him to national attention in the first place.
