WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on his intent to vote against cloture and final confirmation for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:
“After meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his testimony and past decisions, I’ve observed that he has repeatedly taken an activist approach to cases involving a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her health. He has made the astounding argument that bosses have an individual right to prevent their company’s female employees from using their own health insurance to buy contraception. He has taken extraordinary steps to force reconsideration
The troubadour paid a satirical visit to the Reagan Dinner fundraiser Saturday night. The headliner was Lt. Governor Bill Bolling but Steve Mabry stole the show with his troubadour roast of Gwen Mason.
The Roanoke city Councilwoman ran for retiring William Fralin’s seat for the 17th District against Republican Bill Cleaveland. Cleaveland won handily and Mabry his campaign manager could not resist.
Introducing the clip Mabry referred to Mason as a liberal activist and Democrat by DNA. “She actually worked for Hillary Clinton,” quipped Mabry. He said during the campaign however “she aligned herself with everything that Bill Cleaveland stood for … to convince us of how conservative she was.”
What is stranger thought several Republicans was that Mason is supporting Ray Ferris running for city council as a Democrat. Ferris hosted a fundraiser for Cleaveland with contributions totaling $500. Ferris voted in the Republican primary where Cleaveland prevailed over the other four Republicans vying for the nomination.
The troubadour just happened to come by so listen to him here ….
