    Support Bannon's conditions...or else:


    Bannon Plans to Back Challengers to Most GOP Senators Running in 2018


    Steve Bannon plans to back primary challengers to almost every Republican senator who runs for reelection next year in an effort to depose Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and streamline Senate voting procedures, three people familiar with his plans said.

    Bannon plans to support as many as 15 Republican Senate candidates in 2018, including several challengers to incumbents, the people said. He’ll support only candidates who agree to two conditions: They will vote against McConnell as majority leader, and they will vote to end senators’ ability to block legislation by filibustering.

    BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA!

    Yes, Bannon did it BEFORE this current thing against the Senator from Maine. So it wasn't just now invented by the Left as you said, retard.

    Do you think Bannon's support doesn't involve spending money, idiot? Jesus, you can't admit you fucked up, can you. You just don't have the integrity.

    You have to be driven to the wall and have your head hammered against it.

    Pathetic.

    If you read the linked article, it doesn't say she reported it. If you read the article, it is highly biased and that always makes me a little nervous about it's veracity. It may well be exactly what the deal was, but I wouldn't mind hearing that from another source or two, actually, before you guys wear yourselves out arguing about it.

    Does that sound like bribing an elected official to anyone else, or is that just me?

    Yeah, I need more examples. I'm not buying that one, try getting an example where money was actually on the line.
    Not just cheap words.

    I really hate it when liberals behave almost as badly as conservatives.

    ICYMI: “Group Threatens Sen. Collins with $1.3 Million Donation Over Kavanaugh Vote” | Senator Susan Collins

    In the Senator's own words, she states:

    ‘I consider this quid pro quo fundraising to be the equivalent of an attempt to bribe me to vote against Judge Kavanaugh.


    “‘If I vote against him, the money is refunded to the donors. If I vote for him, the money is given to my opponent for the 2020 race,’ she said.


    “She emphasized ‘this effort will not influence my vote at all,’ adding, ‘I think it demonstrates the new lows to which the judge’s opponents have stooped.’

    Since Trump's elections, we have heard a non-stop drumbeat that any "Establishment Republicans" who did not get in line behind Trump would be unseated by Trumpie Republicans in the primaries. If you don't back Trump, cash will be thrown at your challengers in the primaries.

    How quickly the tards forget that.
