Well, it looks like liberals are already sharpening their pitchforks for Amy Coney Barrett’s upcoming nomination.
Democrat activist and former Hill staffer Dana Houle has launched an ugly attack against Barrett and her husband for adopting their two children from Haiti.
Houle put out a scathing tweet hoping that Barrett is investigated for her adopted children, claiming she went about it “illegally.”
“So here’s a Q: Does the press even investigate details of Barrett’s adoptions from Haiti?” Houle wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell. And if the press learned they were unethical & maybe illegal adoptions, would they report it? Or not bc it involves her children”
In a third follow-up tweet, Houle added: “Would it matter if her kids were scooped up by ultra-religious Americans, or Americans weren’t scrupulous intermediaries & the kids were taken when there was family in Haiti? I dunno. I think it does, but maybe it doesn’t, or shouldn’t.”
According to his LinkedIn page, Houle is a former campaign manager to several top Democrats like former Rep. Paul Hodes (D-NH) and current Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT). He also was Hodes’ chief of staff in Congress. On his website, Houle describes himself as an effective Democrat operative who has taken out sitting Republicans. Houle writes about himself:
In Michigan I worked in organized labor, as a policy analyst in the legislature, and managed campaigns from state representative up to statewide office. Despite my love for Detroit, in 2005 I moved to Washington DC to do national politics. I’ve managed two winning campaigns against incumbent Republican Congressmen in New England, served as a chief of staff on Capitol Hill and managed races in Minnesota, Kansas and Louisiana. I’ve also been blogging about politics at various places since 2003.
Several top Republicans quickly seized on Houle’s tweets, including Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Tom Cotton (R-AR), who called the Democrat tactics of smearing Barrett and her family despicable.
Anyone who thought the left would refrain from attacking a female nominee like Barrett is sadly mistaken.
There really is no low that these people won’t stoop too.
We all learned that during Kavanaug’s hearings.
