Weekend Report: What's going on?
FL GOP chair accused of rape. Wife, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, admits she had consensual sex with the victim. Santos outing Republicans? McCarthy says Biden is old because he checks notes.
Court records now show that Moms For Liberty co-founder Bridget Ziegler, whose group has attacked LGBTQ people as “groomers” and gone on book-banning purges has admitted to having sex with a woman in a three-way with Ziegler's husband—as she was pushing her extremist anti-LGBTQ agenda. Her husband, Florida Republican Party chairman Christian Ziegler, is accused of raping the woman a year later—though he denies it, stating it was “consensual” extramarital sex.
George Santos, before he was expelled from Congress, had threatened to reveal all kinds of information—including about the extramarital affairs of Republican House members—and, of course, it’s hard to believe anything from Santos. However, he’s started putting out information alleging corruption by certain members that can easily be checked by journalists. He also seems to be outing a member of the New York GOP Congressional delegation as gay.
And Kevin McCarthy claimed in a New York Times interview that he saw proof of President Biden being too old because the president read from notes during negotiations over the debt ceiling. This seems insane because most of us read from notes during meetings, presentations, and other business. Hell, I read from notes during my radio program! Anyway, now photographic evidence shows it’s not only common for politicians to use notes—but Kevin McCarthy himself has done so.
