Rep. Katie Porter wants to expose Moscow Mitch's corruption, so I'm gonna help her Recommend 368 Share Tweet145 Comments 145 New FULLERTON, CA - OCTOBER 04: Congressional candidate Katie Porter (CA-45) speaks at a 2018 mid-term elections rally on October 4, 2018 in Fullerton, California. The event, at California State University, Fullerton, was led by former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and was held for five California Democratic congressional candidates. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images) All I’ll say is I’m glad Katie Porter is on our side. She’s fierce and unafraid, and her latest Twitter thread amply demonstrates that:

Rep. Katie Porter @RepKatiePorter When I came to Congress, I knew I had a responsibility to pull back the curtain for the American people and expose corruption in real time. So, I’m filling you in on Senator McConnell’s attempts over the last 8 days to tank a *bipartisan* COVID relief bill.

15h Replying to @RepKatiePorter You may have heard that Democrats and Republicans have agreed upon spending $900 billion to fund another round of small business loans, support hospitals and essential workers, and help the 10 million people who lost their jobs through no fault of their own. (2/5) Rep. Katie Porter @RepKatiePorter ·

15h Everyone at the negotiating table—including Senate Rs—has agreed to a compromise. Except one. Mitch McConnell is refusing to bring it to the floor unless it wipes away all COVID-related lawsuits filed that “allege injury or death” due to corporate negligence. (3/5) Rep. Katie Porter @RepKatiePorter ·

15h These lawsuits represent the worst of the worst examples of disregard for human life—cases filed on behalf of nursing home patients and grocery store workers who died because the company in charge of keeping them safe prioritized cutting costs over protecting them. (4/5) Rep. Katie Porter @RepKatiePorter ·

15h The same McConnell who said that President Trump is “100% within his rights” to pursue baseless lawsuits alleging election fraud is now refusing to pass urgently-needed relief unless it strips those same rights from the most vulnerable among us. This must be exposed. (5/5)

Yertle the Fucking Unbelievable Disgrace won’t change, of course, until that gavel is ripped from his cold, dead hands. (I don’t mean to imply McConnell himself is close to death, of course; just that his hands are. I believe I saw an obit for them awhile back, though I might be mistaken. Still — fucking gross.)

Barf, amirite?

That’s why we have to win these Georgia Senate seats.

Go here to donate to Raphael Warnock and here to pitch in for Jon Ossoff.

We can help save this country. And do you really want those gross meatloaf phalanges on the Senate tiller one more second?
