Alyssa Milano Hates the Concept of Dark Money in Politics, but she Likes Their Checks All the Same

In classic liberal fashion what they bleat about the loudest is what they are most guilty of themselves.

Alyssa Milano has been on an incessant political tear of late. The part time celebrity and full time social activist has been especially busy of late, with abortion on the front burner of her overheated political kitchen. Today she sent out a message about the unfair nature of financially-backed political groups.

Yes, the familiar bromide from the left about the vile nature of “dark money”! It’s special how they constantly trot out this ominous phrase absent any explanation about the implied nefariousness of it all. Alyssa seems particularly drawn to this political boogeyman, recently invoking it on the same issue.

That Milano has been in full foghorn mode since the Donald Trump election has become accepted as a given. We are almost inured to her dramatic turns on social media, pleading incessantly for causes she promises will bring about our demise, or something. She tours the country campaigning for candidates from areas where she does not live, maintaining a near-perfect record of losses by any name she has backed.

Adding to her losing record was her appearance in a Senate hearing to oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh (who was approved for SCOTUS), calling for Congress to re-ratify the failed Equal Rights Amendment (it has not), and to promote a boycott by Hollywood if Georgia passed the heartbeat abortion bill (it was signed into law last week).

There is one other arena in which Milano comes out on the losing end: Facts. Looking over Alyssa’s travels on behalf of all of her causes a certain question is raised. My RedState podcast partner, Sarah Lee, has asked frequently if anyone is behind her globe-trotting efforts, and it turns out that indeed yes, there is. While this actress-vist is intoning the horrors of the venal power of “Dark Money” it turns out she is actually supported by a group falling under that very banner.

It was recently exposed that there is an anonymously-funded Democratic outfit dubbed Future Majority that tasks itself with influencing the upcoming elections and combating conservatism on social media. They are reported to begin with $60 million pledged towards efforts aimed at the 2020 election cycle. And, ass Politico notes, the group has been “active for months”, and is involved with “enlisting personalities like actress Alyssa Milano.”

The group is not only leaning towards the liberal agenda, it is comprised of Democrat party operatives — from the Obama administration.

Future Majority has enlisted advisers including Dan Sena, who was executive director of the DCCC for the last election, and Julianna Smoot, a deputy campaign manager on Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection effort. Two major Democratic donors are co-chairing the group: Philip Munger, son of Berkshire Hathaway billionaire Charles Munger, and Dan Tierney, founder of high-speed trading company GETGO. Keith Mestrich, president and CEO of Amalgamated Bank, is also helping fund the group.

Another key name is connected to the operation, according to Open Secrets.

Earlier this year, Democratic fundraiser Matthew Tompkins formed a super PAC called America’s Future Majority Fund PAC. With Tompkins, links between Future Majority and presidential contender Joe Biden begin to emerge. The Hill reported that Tompkins recently launched a pro-Biden super PAC, titled For the People PAC, with the aim of raising tens of millions of dollars to support Biden’s campaign.

This, despite Joe Biden himself coming forward to announce that he wants no support from super PACs. This is nothing more than lip service however, as Ms. Milano exemplifies. As she is decrying “dark money” she is also reported by Open Secrets to be working with Future Majority. This goes far to explain a rather curious contradiction taking place within her activism.

Milano was one of the louder supporters of the #MeToo movement, a position that sternly revisited during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. However after months of her declaring the importance of stopping sexual harassment and believing all women she turned a 180 on the issue when Joe Biden was facing charges of his creepy behavior towards women, following his announced candidacy.

Suddenly the women’s rights warrior was defending Biden and dismissing any allegations made by women who complained about his behavior with them in the past. Seems the woman backed by the same dark money group founded by Biden’s people has fluid values on the subject based on who is involved. But then this is hardly the only subject with which Milano displays a fluid morality.

Months back she wrote an op-ed column for USA Today where she outlined all of the evils concerning dark money outfits and PACs that have influence on our democracy. And yet, as Open Secrets describes the group, “Future Majority will do much more than spend money on ads — primarily offering strategic advice and branding efforts to other Democratic groups. A nonprofit acting as a self-proclaimed “strategy center” for other groups represents a new kind of dark money group.”

It seems that when it comes to the evils of dark money groups, Alyssa Milano thinks they could be the worst thing about politics — until the check clears.

Wrong Audience: Los Angeles Enacts Travel Ban Against Alabama Over Abortion Law, Writes Letter Ordering an Immediate Repeal

Geez louise.

Los Angeles County has banned travel to Alabama for a year in response to the red state’s abortion law (see more uproar over the legislation here and here).

Post-HB 314, LA’s making a sour face. County Supervisor Hilda Solis called it an “attack on reproductive rights and economic justice.”

Okay. But why in the world are the Democrats in Los Angeles trying to put themselves into the politics of another state? Are they expecting their protest to change Alabama’s mind? One thing I know about the Heart of Dixie is that it couldn’t give less of a flip what Hollywood believes, and the same goes for anyone in power in the City of Angels.

Here’s Hilda’s explanation:

“We must stand in solidarity and in opposition against extremist and unconstitutional laws that put the health and wellbeing of families at risk. The constitutional and human right to a safe and legal abortion is part of the very fabric of the United States. As such, Los Angeles County will stand against all attempts to dismantle the protections afforded by Roe v. Wade and the U.S. Constitution.”

If they’re against extremist laws, how’s their stance against New York (here and here). Also, what’s the position toward San Francisco (here)? On top of that, LA may wanna check out a little bit o’ the ol’ introspection (here).

The ban prevents any county employee from traveling to Alabama the Beautiful on official business. Exceptions’ll be made for emergency response training or other trips required by law.

Now here’s where it gets really dumb, as reported by Al.com:

LA County officials are also sending a letter to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and Legislative leaders calling for the measure’s immediate repeal. Similar letters will be sent to officials in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Utah, all states considering their own restrictive abortion laws.

LA’s got just a smidge too high an opinion of itself.

Dear Los Angeles:

Like Randy Newman said, I love you. You’re a wonderland. But autonomous state governments don’t care about your opinion. About, literally, anything. Ever. At all. And people in Alabama, incidentally, are way tougher than you. You worry about pronouns and chew on kale. They wear hip holsters and eat stuff they saw in the woods.

Video: Ted Cruz Urges College Socialists to Engage With Free Enterprise Proponents Instead of Trying to Silence Them

Socialism has been gaining in popularity over the last several years with young people – especially in the aftermath of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) surprisingly popular presidential run in 2016 and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY-14) media-driven meteoric rise to fame.

In addition to that, college liberals and socialists alike have increased their attempts at suppressing the voices of free thinking conservative students whose views differ from them on issues like illegal immigration, healthcare, and socialism.

Unfortunately, some school administrators have even gone along with them – or have implemented strict rules themselves over what can and can’t be said on campus.

In response to all of that, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a message for today’s young socialists:

Stop trying to stifle the debate. Be open-minded instead of demanding your political opposition be silenced over differing views. Be willing to listen and respectfully engage.

Campus Reform‘s editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones recently interviewed Cruz on a number of hot topics, including free speech issues on campus. The Senator also talked about how liberal campaigns to shut down discussions merely because of disagreement were the antithesis of what the First Amendment was all about:

“Unfortunately, students…they’re not being taught to think,” Cruz said. “What’s defined as hate speech, by the way, is anything the Left disagrees with. The First Amendment wasn’t designed for popular speech. You actually don’t need the First Amendment if what you’re saying is popular. The First Amendment was designed to protect unpopular speech, to protect minority views, to protect views that are not in common agreement. And particularly the whole point about a college experience is learning to confront views you’ve never seen before.”

Retired Pastor & His Wife Say They Were Evicted from Their Senior Living Community for Hosting a Bible Study

Westlake Legal Group kenneth-liz-hauge-bible-study-SCREENSHOT-620x329 Retired Pastor & His Wife Say They Were Evicted from Their Senior Living Community for Hosting a Bible Study Virginia Uncategorized religion lutheran liz hauge lea patterson law ken hauge Judicial Front Page Stories fredericksburg first liberty Faith evergreens at smith run discrimination Culture & Faith Culture community realty Christianity Bible Allow Media Exception

[Screenshot from First Liberty Institute, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuOO4-BDAP0]

 

In Virginia, an elderly couple has sued their apartment complex for kickin’ ’em out.

The reason for the ejection? They were hosting a weekly Bible study.

So say Kenneth Hauge and his wife, Liz — both in their 80’s — in a federal suit filed in Richmond.

The complaint alleges housing discrimination on the part of Community Realty — the management company for Fredericksburg’s Evergreens at Smith Run.

Kenneth is a retired Lutheran minister, and he and Liz were hosting a Bible group in the senior living facility’s Club Room.

They were told they’d be evicted if they continued.

GodUpdates.com reported it this way:

When fellow residents found out about Ken’s calling, they were ecstatic. As it turns out, they’d been longing to start their very own resident’s Bible study there on-site. So, they approached Ken and asked him to lead it.

Management immediately balked at having the event called a “Bible study.” Instead, they insisted Ken call it a “Book Review.” Ken and the residents thought the matter was resolved.

But a year later, Ken got the surprise of a lifetime — an eviction notice!

In July 2018, the retirement home issued a new, six-page community room policy. In it, they prohibited using the Community Room for “religious services or for other religious purposes.”

The couple’s attorney, Lea Patterson, told Fox News it’s a case of religious persecution:

“The management company’s hostility to religious residents violates federal law and taints Virginia’s long history of religious freedom. We’re asking the court to hold the management company accountable for violating the Hauges’ right to exercise their faith in their home and to ensure no other residents have to suffer through what the Hauges have endured.”

Purportedly, the Bible class dustup wasn’t the joint’s only fight over faith.

As per a letter from the Hauges’ law firm, First Liberty:

[I]n 2017 the Evergreens refused to reimburse the resident social committee for an agreed-upon portion of expenses associated with a monthly resident social dinner because a resident briefly and audibly said grace over the meal. In this context, the Notice and Policy merely crystalized the discriminatory purpose and disparate treatment the Evergreens demonstrated and effectuated for some time.

But Community Realty is biting back: It claims Kenneth and Liz were harassing people about joining the Bible class.

First Liberty has requested the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development looking into whether the apartment complex committed discrimination.

Kenneth explained that Liz tried to work out their issues directly with the facility, but it was a no-go.

At the end of the day, he just wants to exercise his rights:

“It seems to me so obvious why people should be free to express their basic convictions, their basic understanding of philosophical, theological, culturally without any limitations. I believe we are guaranteed that right by law and I think that’s enough reason to stand our ground on it.”

Stelter Explains His (Former) Obsession With Avenatti, Gives Farcical “Trump-Like Mastery of the Media” Excuse

Westlake Legal Group Avenatti-1 Stelter Explains His (Former) Obsession With Avenatti, Gives Farcical “Trump-Like Mastery of the Media” Excuse Social Media Politics North Carolina New York Michael Avenatti Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Culture CNN Brian Stelter Allow Media Exception

As the feds made clear earlier this week, liberal icon/hero Michael Avenatti is going to be tied up in even more legal woes courtesy of fresh fraud and extortion indictments. Avenatti, of course, has alleged that this is a political hit job, and says he will be completely exonerated once all is said and done.

While many have unapologetically basked in the schadenfreude glow at seeing Avenatti get his just desserts, CNN‘s self-styled mainstream media defender Brian Stelter is doing what he believes is correcting the record when it comes to defending his critical role in the meteoric rise of porn star Stormy Daniels’s former attorney.

From Stelter’s Thursday newsletter (bolded emphasis added by him):

With Michael Avenatti facing charges in multiple states, WaPo’s Erik Wemple went back and examined the reasons for Avenatti’s “cable-news ubiquity,” which has been intensely criticized by conservative media critics. I played a starring role in this Free Beacon mash-up [LINK] of TV outlets talking with Avenatti, so Wemple asked me for comment… And here’s what I told him:

There are lots and lots of reasons why Avenatti was newsworthy when he was representing Stormy Daniels. Journalists did their jobs and questioned him — some more effectively than others. Critics are doing their jobs and questioning the coverage — and that makes all of us better. But bad faith arguments make us all worse off. Some folks have been distorting my comment last September about Avenatti. My thesis back then, which still holds, is that all future US presidents will be television stars of some sort. TV star power will be a prerequisite for the presidency. [That’s why] I told Avenatti “one reason I’m taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news.”

Obviously I’m not taking him seriously anymore, but I own that comment. He showed a Trump-like mastery of the media last year. I think there’s been a lot of introspection in newsrooms about the reasons for that mastery. I think what’s most important now is that the cases against him are covered fairly and thoroughly, not soft-pedaled by people who previously interviewed him OR sensationalized by people who dislike him.

While it’s true that Stelter called him a “master of the media” last year, to suggest that his primary motivation for talking up Avenatti so much was because he was a possible presidential contender is absolutely absurd.

Not only that, but his assertion that some journalists questioned the disgraced lawyer “more effectively than others” is absolutely laughable. As the Free Beacon video made clear, Avenatti got the pillow plumping treatment everywhere he went on cable news – except for Fox News, where Tucker Carlson called him out for the shameless exploiter that he is.

As I’ve written previously, the Free Beacon video montage expertly reminded us of how leftists and media types (like Stelter himself) hung on to Avenatti’s every word, with some even bizarrely likening him to a political “Holy Spirit.” Why? Because they just knew Avenatti was going to be the guy who was going to take Trump down.

Stelter and other journalists are now busy running away from their close associations with Avenatti. But one thing they can’t hide from is how their coddling of him at the expense of their journalistic principles only further erodes their already-damaged credibility.

Report: Colorado Sec. of State’s Office Sought Help From Planned Parenthood in Drafting Alabama Boycott Press Release

Westlake Legal Group Planned-Parenthood-sign Report: Colorado Sec. of State’s Office Sought Help From Planned Parenthood in Drafting Alabama Boycott Press Release Pro-Life Politics planned parenthood North Carolina Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Colorado Allow Media Exception Abortion 2020 Elections 2020

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold (D) is in hot water this week after it was discovered that her office consulted with the pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood on a press release to announce her department’s Alabama boycott.

9News reports:

Before Colorado’s Secretary of State put out a news release calling for a boycott of Alabama over the state’s new abortion ban, her office sent the news release to Planned Parenthood for suggestions and edits.

On Thursday, Secretary of State Jena Griswold (D) announced she was restricting employee travel to Alabama in response to a strict abortion ban signed into law last week.

About two hours before the news release was sent out, Griswold’s communications director, Serena Woods, emailed the draft news release to Whitney Phillips and Jack Teter. Phillips is the vice president of communications for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and Teter is Planned Parenthood’s political director.

In an email dated May 16 at 12:24 p.m., Woods wrote Phillips and Teter:

Whitney & Jack,

Draft of what we are thinking attached. LMK thoughts/edits. If you could turn around as quickly as possible that would be great because SOS wants to move fast.

Thanks,

Serena

There were other communications as well, as you can read at the below link.

Just to make clear, the travel ban is for her office only, not the whole state. Plus, Griswold is also considering a Senate run. What a surprise!

When Griswold was asked for a comment on her office’s consulting work with Planned Parenthood, she issued a lengthy response and went into the predictable “right to choose” mode. Only one sentence from her statement applied to the question:

I consulted with Planned Parenthood about this decision, as they are one of the largest providers of, and leading experts on, women’s health care.

Oh, baloney. The real reason Griswold reached out to Planned Parenthood on this issue is because they donated to her 2018 campaign, and it was time to give them their money’s worth:

Griswold enjoyed the support of pro-abortion interest groups during her 2018 election, the first campaign that she ever ran. She received $1,150 from EMILY’s List, a national group that supports pro-abortion candidates, as well as $1,000 from Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, according to FollowtheMoney.org.

In case you were wondering how pro-abortion groups are so effective at getting their message out, now you know. The talking points these groups send out aren’t just for the mainstream media to regurgitate, of course.

Show host Tucker Carlson and lawyer Michael Avenatti spar – 9/13/18. Screen grab via Fox News.

In light of the latest round of federal indictments liberal icon Michael Avenatti was hit with, now is a great time to take a trip down memory lane to the infamous showdown between the disgraced attorney and Fox News‘s Tucker Carlson from last fall.

It was September 13, 2018. The interview was highly contentious, as the transcript and video makes clear.

But a key moment from the segment was Carlson calling Avenatti out on his exploitation of porn star Stormy Daniels, which almost everyone in America could see outside of the Avenatti-adoring mainstream media and Daniels herself.

Here’s the exchange between Carlson and Avenatti:

CARLSON: So you’re – you’re the protector of Stormy Daniels. Stormy Daniels is right now working in strip clubs in little towns on stage. People are throwing things at her. You’re wearing a $1,000 suit. Why is you – why are you not paying her?

You’ve profited from Stormy Daniels. You’ve done tens of millions dollars’ worth of free media on the basis of your relationship with her and she’s working in strip clubs. You’re exploiting her, and you know that. Why aren’t you paying her some of what you’re making?

AVENATTI: Sir, this is absurd. I have not exploited.

CARLSON: It’s not absurd. Those are the facts.

AVENATTI: No. You don’t know the facts as evidenced by the fact that you don’t even know–

CARLSON: Is she working in strip clubs?

AVENATTI: Are you going to continue to interrupt me or you’re going to let me finish?

CARLSON: I do know the facts, actually.

Watch the video below.

When you’re right, you’re right. Tucker was essentially the only talk show host willing to confront Avenatti on this issue, because so many others show hosts and mainstream media types were too busy hanging on to his every word because he was gonna be the guy who finally got Trump.

As it turns out, not only did he not succeed against the President, he failed Daniels badly and as the indictments made clear this week, he may have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars from her, too.

13-Time Felon Accidentally Shoots Himself in the Testicles While Carrying Drugs in His Anus – As You Do

Westlake Legal Group cameron-jeffrey-wilson-SCREENSHOT-620x305 13-Time Felon Accidentally Shoots Himself in the Testicles While Carrying Drugs in His Anus – As You Do Washington Uncategorized Not Today Internet methamphetamines meth Guns Front Page Stories Featured Story Drugs Culture crime chelan county cashmere cameron jeffrey wilson Allow Media Exception

[Screnshot from tweet, https://twitter.com/PlethoraMounds/status/1131557121072480257]

 

When you’re carrying drugs in your anus, it’s best not to shoot yourself in the testicles.

So goes the conventional wisdom, apparently not twice heard by 27-year-old Cameron Jeffrey Wilson.

The 13-time convicted felon was walking around his Cashmere, Washington apartment in April, toting a balloon full of marijuana in his colon — as one does — when his pistol accidentally discharged.

The bullet went right into his sack — and I don’t mean the “knap” kind.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed April 16th, while doctors treated his gunshot wound to the jewels, the rubber bag of weed exited his rectum.

Just another day in the ER, I suppose.

Purportedly, before heading to the hospital with his bulleted balls, Cameron had given the gun to a friend for safekeeping. Having been convicted of felonies over a dozen times, he knew possessing a firearm was a no-no.

But Chelan County Sheriff’s detectives got word of the butt bag and ball blowout. Subsequently, they searched his car at the hospital and discovered methamphetamines in the pocket of a bloody pair of jeans.

A warrant was issued for possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of meth. Cameron was charged April 16th. He turned himself in two days later.

And that’s the end.

Just kidding: During a strip search at the jail, another container of kush crapped out his corn hole.

There goes another charge — possession of a controlled substance in a correctional facility.

As reported by The Wenatchee World, investigators were listening in on Cameron’s jailhouse calls to his girlfriend, during which he told her not to cooperate with the cops.

Boom: Four counts of tampering with a witness.

The three incidents will be addressed as separate cases in superior court.

On July 9th, Cam pleaded not guilty to tampering charges, having done the same regarding the other counts on May 1st.

He’s being held on $110,000 ball. I mean, tail. I mean, bail.

Cameron’s clearly an overachiever — that many convictions at 27 is quite the feat. Kudos to him on also joining what I must assume is the very, very short list of people who’ve shoved drugs up their butt and then shot themselves in the nuttiest place to point a gun.

Congratulations on a life well-lived.

Well, Don Jr. had something to say about that comment on Fox & Friends.

Host Steve Doocy brought up Pelosi to Don, noting she’d gone into a meeting about infrastructure — a topic requiring the Commander-in-Chief’s cooperation — after having just left a get-together tossing around the Leader of the Free World’s impeachment:

“What did you make of — we saw it unfold live on TV yesterday, Nancy Pelosi going into her meeting at 9:00 in the morning – they were talking about impeaching your dad. Later on, she came out and said he is obstructing justice and involved in a cover-up. He heard that. They came over. He said, ‘Meeting is over, I will not talk to you about infrastructure unless you end the phony investigations.’”

Don was unimpressed. He was also right — Democrats just won’t give up on their maniacal drive to oust Trump. How about focusing on their jobs in the legislature, and on constructive things? No dice. Here’s Junior:

“In reality, the Democrats are not dealing in good faith. We know that. First, it was collusion. It failed miserably. Then it was obstruction. Now the newest soundbite is that it’s a cover-up. Well, if there was none of the other things, what exactly are you covering up?”

Good question.

“They are upset that he is upset that they perpetrated the greatest hoax on the American people in the history of this country. So you can’t deal with someone like that.”



The President’s namesake accused the Democrats of not really wanting to get anything done, for fear it’ll be credited to Trump.

Then co-host Ainsley Earhardt moved on to Pelosi’s “pray” comment.

By the way: Is it just me, or can you tell — with almost total certainty — from the sound of her speech and the look of her face…that Nancy Pelosi definitely smells like Noxzema?

Moving on…take it away, Ainsley:

“She goes on to say, ‘I pray for the president.’ The president tweeted, he says, ‘Thanks, I know you truly mean it.’”

Awww, this makes me laugh.

Donald Trump Jr. rared back and slung quite the strong — and poignant — comeback:

“I don’t think the party of infanticide is praying for anyone. That is not what they do. We get that. Constant attacks on American values, on democracy. Honestly, this election, 2020, it is about communism versus freedom. You can choose.”

You sure can.

The Purging: DCCC Leader Caves to Justice Democrat Bullies, Cancels Fundraising Plans for Pro-Life House Dem

Earlier this month, pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List, and NARAL enthusiastically threw their support behind Marie Newman in the IL-3 Congressional race. Newman is a Democrat who is trying primary out Rep. Dan Lipinski, who one of the last pro-life Democrats in Congress.

Newman tried and failed in 2018 to unseat Lipinski, and decided to give it another go again this year. Not only does she have the backing of the pro-abortion groups mentioned above, but presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) has also endorsed her – as she did in 2018.

This is all part of a coordinated purge strategy that has taken shape over the last few weeks courtesy of abortion fanatics, including AOC’s Justice Democrats and Gillibrand herself. The goal is to effectively kick out all remaining pro-life politicians in the Democratic party because when it comes to abortion, nothing less than unconditional support for abortion on demand will do.

After the pro-abortion groups made their announcement, the DCCC maintained that they were going to stand by Lipinski in spite of the growing calls in the party for a pro-lifer purge. But apparently due to pressure from the Justice Dems, Gillibrand, and others, DCCC chair Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL-17) has backed out of fundraising plans for the embattled Democrat:

The head of the House Democrats’ campaign arm has cancelled plans to fundraise for Rep. Dan Lipinski — one of the party’s last remaining anti-abortion stalwarts — after facing fierce backlash from the party’s left flank.

Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.) announced Wednesday that she is pulling out of next month’s fundraiser in her home state, as a slew of new anti-abortion laws in predominantly Republican states have catapulted the issue to the forefront of national politics and, likely, the 2020 election.

“I’m proud to have a 100 percent pro-choice voting record and I’m deeply alarmed by the rapidly escalating attacks on women’s access to reproductive care in several states,” Bustos said in a statement. “I’ve determined that I must cancel my participation in this event.”

Here is her full statement:

Lipinski, in turn issued one of his own:

“We both understand that (Bustos’s) most important job right now is her work leading the DCCC. We agree that it is in the best interest of House Democrats that she does not attend the event,” Lipinski said.

Bustos said that while she and Lipinski “do not agree on women’s reproductive health care, this does not change how I will work as DCCC chair to protect our big-tent democratic caucus.”

This is called “trying to have it both ways.”

It’s unclear whether or not this will appease the party’s more militant abortion supporters. But one thing that has been made clear by this is that neither the DCCC nor House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has control of the party anymore.

The Illinois primary will be held on March 17, 2020.
