When it comes to needing all or most Republicans votes in order to pass something in the U.S. Senate, Maine Senator Susan Collins is usually wild card. This is especially true when it comes to confirming President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanuagh.
Originally, Collins appeared to a “no” vote when it came to Kavanaugh, but a number of public statements seemed to be indicating that she was leaning towards voting in the affirmative.
Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh should both testify under oath before the Judiciary Committee.

Collins doesn’t appear to have necessarily changed her mind on Kavanaugh since the allegations, but wants to hear everybody out. On Monday afternoon, Collins told reporters that “there are an awful lot of questions, inconsistencies, gaps and that’s why to be fair to be, we need to know what happened.” Seems like a completely logical response, right? Well, liberal and logic don’t mix. leftists have been losing their mind, think that Collins should change her mind just based solely on the fact that a woman is accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault 30 years ago.
Check out some of the unhinged responses:
Oh really @SenatorCollins? If Kavanaugh attempted to rape Dr. Ford, that would be “disqualifying”?
How about criminal? Grounds for impeachment from the federal bench?
I feel so sorry for every woman living in America, let alone in Maine. @SenatorCollins doesn’t give AF about us

Maybe Susan Collins is just jealous she wasn’t getting any action at age 15 😂

Why? What will come of it when your party has already minimized the accusation of gang rape to "boys will be boys?"

.@SenatorCollins: I need lots more information before I can make a decision on who is telling the truth. I need to see them react to questioning in person. It's nuanced.
Also @SenatorCollins: String Al Franken up by his balls; one dumb photo is all I need to leap to a conclusion.
