Democrat Adam Schiff was censured by Republicans and has somehow used that to milk millions for a run at the California Senate, making him one of the potential ‘Senate Cash Cows’ as identified by Axios. At the time, Axios reported Adam Schiff at the top of the list of politicians with ‘cash on hand’ and slated Schiff with $29.8 million, skyrocketing doubly over Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema who are both listed with $10.8 million. Axios attributed this data to the FEC.
This is a hotbed for discussion as aging Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat will be dusted off and someone else will take over in the super-expensive run for California Senate. Feinstein is 90-years-old and seems incapable of doing her job like many politicians who refuse to retire, milking that government salary without offering anything in return for the taxpayers they represent. No one wants to pay taxes and have dried up raisin sitting there doing nothing, right?
Democrats are raising money to take over for Feinstein, but Axios did point out something favorable for Republicans. The report noted that “Democrats are facing a historically difficult Senate map in 2024, defending seats in three states former President Trump won in 2020.” The Democrats have a ton of money to
waste spend on campaigns, but that doesn’t mean they’ll spend it wisely or come up with enough support to take on Republicans. Of course, voters must show up or suffer the consequences.
Adam Schiff, who’s constantly called a compulsive liar on social media, somehow doubled the cash on hand amounts of others seeking to sit in Feinstein’s musty senate seat and reports suggest the GOP censuring could have sparked the cash cow milking. Schiff censure vote was 213-209 and not in his favor. He was censured for inappropriate comments he made about investigations into Donald Trump and alleged ties to Russia.
Schiff has been a longtime critic of former President Donald Trump, but Schiff is constantly ridiculed on social media with people calling him out for telling lies. Republicans have had a target on Schiff’s back for ages, waiting for the right time to censure him and, according to a report on AP, Republicans also blocked him from being on an intelligence panel.
The bad news for Republicans is that 20 of them appeared to side with Democrats in support of Adam Schiff, or against his censuring, but most eventually came to their senses and voted in line with the party. AP’s report further stated why some Republicans changed their mind and it concerned provisions. The report said the 20 Republicans who sided with Democrats had reversed their “votes this week after the measure’s sponsor, Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna of Florida, removed a provision that could have fined Schiff $16 million if the House Ethics Committee determined he lied. Several of the Republicans who voted to block the resolution last week said they opposed fining a member of Congress in that manner.”
If Republicans don’t stick together, then the future could be bleak for America.
