Georgia’s Republican Senator David Perdue, known around these parts for being a millionaire who loves bailouts and outsourcing American jobs, was walking through Washington’s Ronald Reagan National Airport when he was approached by three women. According to The Cut, the three women, including two identified as sexual-assault survivors, wanted to ask Sen. Perdue to stand up for women by demanding a thorough investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The three women — sexual-assault survivors Patti Serrano and Jennifer Epps-Addison, of the Center for Popular Democracy advocacy group, along with Arizona State Representative Isela Blanc — also asked Perdue whether he supports a full FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.
Perdue tried to ignore the women, and then told one of them not to touch him when she put out her hand to introduce herself. Perdue proceeded to make a beeline for an airport bathroom. Maybe an appropriate Republican motto could be “Republicans: angry and afraid of women … since forever.”
Sen. Perdue may be too far gone, but Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski seem to still be at least flirting with the proverbial fence. Sign the petitions here and here and tell Collins and Murkowski to get their acts together.
