Susan Collins Stares down Dems in the Face of Harassment and Criticism
The Democrats attacked Senator Susan Collins because of the Kavanaugh case. They couldn’t handle that a woman would side against Ford. But unlike the Dems who were easily convinced, Collins followed the evidence and therefore knew she had to vote yes. In fact, she felt it was her duty to do the right thing as opposed to the politically easier thing that those across the aisle were advocating.
“The easier vote, politically, clearly, would have been for me to vote no, but that would not have been the right vote,” Collins said. “And I have to live with myself and I want to be able to look in the mirror in the morning and know that I did what I felt was right, no matter what the consequences may be.”
“My job as a United States senator is to apply my best judgment and that’s what I did in this case, despite tremendous pressure, horrible tactics, abuse of my family, my staff, and myself. But I really won’t ever be intimidated. I have to do what I think is right,” Collins said.
Collins revealed that she had a rough time during and after the Kavanaugh case.
“There were protests at my home for six weeks in a row, protests at my home here in Washington, death threats, threats of sexual assault against me and my staff,” the Maine Republican told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.
She had an anthrax scare that really hit home.
“There was an envelope that arrived a few days after the ricin envelope and letter that had white powder in it. And fortunately, the postal service inspector did a great job at intercepting it,” Collins said. “And it was a very difficult time. My husband and our dog and parts of our house had to be quarantined.”

Collins felt the Kavanaugh case was a low point for America.
“I think it’s a disservice to the United States Senate. We’re better than that and this not what the constitutional process of advice and consent is supposed to be about,” Collins said. “I can only hope that this represents rock bottom in what has been a steady decline in the dignity and decorum of the nomination process for Supreme Court nominees over the past three decades.”
We are lucky she was there, as she was not swayed by Ford’s allegations that could not be corroborated.
