John James Repeatedly Called to Terminate The Affordable Care Act, Slash Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions

By Cole Driver on November 19, 2019.

In a video posted to Youtube, Michigan Republican John James repeatedly called for the dismantling of the Affordable Care Act, even going as far as labeling the law a “monstrosity,” which protects millions of Americans living with pre-existing conditions from discrmination by their health insurance provider.

“Our failure to repeal and replace Obamacare is the surest sign that we need new conservative leadership in Washington,”James said in Nov., 2017. “Someone who will go and work their tail off to remove this monstrosity.”

Bathroom Bill Advocate Dan Forest Ridiculously Claims “I have plenty of friends from the LGBT community”

By Cole Driver on November 18, 2019.

In an appearance on a local radio program last Tuesday, North Carolina Republican Dan Forest claimed that he had “plenty of friends from the LGBT community,” despite his lengthy record as an anti-LGBT lawmaker in N.C., including past support of a bill that would have banned people who are transgender from using the bathroom of their choice.

"And I have plenty of friends from the LGBT community,” Forest said on WUNC Radio on Nov. 12. “And so reaching out is certainly a two-way street there. Nobody's reached out to me and said how can we help. But there's never been an antagonistic attitude there. There's never been a negative word spoken. So some people may say that, but they'd never find anything that I've said."

In Reversal, Rispone Flushes Campaign With Special Interest Cash In Final Days of Election

By Cole Driver on November 8, 2019.

As he enters the final days of the Louisiana Gov. runoff, Republican nominee Eddie Rispone is attempting to flush his campaign with outside money from special interests — attending five separate high-dollar fundraisers in the next week -- despite claiming throughout the primary that he would be fully self-financing his gubernatorial effort.

Rispone claimed repeatedly throughout the La. Gov. primary that his campaign would not be indebted to special interests because he was paying the tab on his own race. “I’m not beholden to any special interest group,” Rispone pointedly told The Advocate in September 2019.
