A “dark money” group that spent millions promoting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation effort announced on Tuesday that it’s rewarding Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) with a new “six-figure TV and digital ad campaign” in support of her re-election after she voted for Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
The group, Judicial Crisis Network, issued a press release expressing its gratitude to Collins for her “yes” vote.
“Thank you Susan Collins for thoughtfully reviewing Judge Kavanaugh’s judicial record and weighing the evidence, and for being a reasonable voice during this incredibly divisive time,” Carrie Severino, the group’s chief counsel and policy director, said.
Judicial Crisis Network was one of several well-funded dark money groups to support the accused sexual assaulter’s nomination.
This raises a serious question: Did Collins accept a bribe in exchange for her vote?
