Your DGB for today is to shame a Democratic Congressman.
This week, in an unadulterated pander to anti-choice elements, the GOP introduced a Senate bill that banned ALL abortions past 20 weeks of gestation. Knowing full well that the bill itself would be aborted more quickly than an illegitimate Trump fetus, the bill served to out Senators who are unwilling to take a stand against the restriction of abortion access. The vote fell mostly along party lines with Collins and Murkowski once again proving that they are the only Republican Senators that have a lick of sense. Three Democrats, however, decided to break ranks and vote for the ridiculous bill and one actually co-sponsored it. Today we are calling them out and want your help in ringing the shame bell. The party doesn’t need spineless DINOs that slither under the radar to stay in office.
Perpetrator 1: Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN). You can call him out Twitter, Facebook or contact him at his office. Keep in mind that DINO Joe also has an A rating from the NRA and only 30% from the Human Rights Commission. He is up for re-election in 2018 and we are wondering if we will even be able to tell the difference if a Republican unseats him this fall.
Perpetrator 4: House co-sponsor of the bill, Rep. Dan Lipinski. You can Tweet, Facebook or yell at him via phone at one of his offices available here. The best thing you can do for the country however is to support his opponent in the upcoming Democratic primary. Her name is Marie Newman and she’s a pro-choice progressive who is already getting endorsements from within the party.
