Senator Susan Collins last week called for the disclosure of money going to "dark money" groups running ads about her record. The comment was a familiar one for Collins, but contrasts with some of her votes while in office.

What a whiny little baby. Susan Collins voted to shield the names of 'dark money' donors, refused to support the DISCLOSE Act,legislation which has been introduced and brought to the Senate floor multiple times to establish additional disclosure requirements on organizations spending in federal elections but now that money is being spent against her, she cries foul.

I hope like crazy she goes down in defeat. She's a liar who pretends to 'seriously consider' votes when she already knows she'd just vote with her GOP team like she always does.

"I've never had so much money spent against me in negative ads so early. It's approximately $1.5 million in false attack ads on television, on the internet. It's just been non-stop," Collins said on Maine Calling on Sept. 6. "People should know where this money is coming from. I think we should have a level playing field and I would support a bill to require all groups to disclose their donors."

Here's a Kleenex, two-faced whiner

What's good for the goose is good for the gander, Sen. Collins. Hopefully, "Former Sen. Susan Collins"

Susan Collins has made a career of saying one thing and voting the opposite.

She's managed to bullschitt her voters thus far.

Another bought and paid for politician. We need the sponsor patches to be on display so we can see WHO were actually voting for.

Republicans pander to the ignorant and legislate for the affluent.
I got to get this trademarked.

"You could argue politically that it would be easier for me to just follow a straight party line, but that's not what I think is in the best interests of the people of Maine or this country" - Susan Collins

votes with Trump 93.3% of the time - Also Susan Collins

This is exactly what the Supreme Court recommended to Congress in their opinion in the Citizens United case, if money is speech, the only way to protect the country from outright corruption was for Congress to enact full-disclosure laws. The Court couldn't do that as that would be 'making law', something that's reserved for the Legislative branch of government. The problem with Citizens United was that Conservatives were very happy with the outcome, as long as Congress ignored the actual words written by the Court.

LOL, so SOME of her votes she was for it and SOME of her votes she was against it ....

Fascinating ...

As she voted to repeal a rule that shields donors to many nonprofit groups from disclosure to IRS officials.

The resolution by Sens. Jon Tester, D-Montana, and Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, would make use of the Congressional Review Act to repeal IRS guidance that would have allowed nonprofit organizations to omit names of major donors " those giving more than $5,000 " from disclosure statements, though they would still have to keep the information if the tax-collecting agency asked for it.
