Michigan state senator Pete Lucido of Macomb County, a pro-Trump stronghold that was crucial in turning the state red in 2016, is the latest victim of a #MeToo witch hunt that is trying to destroy his career on dubious charges.
Lucido, a prominent backer of President Trump, has been accused of sexual improprieties by three different women. It started after reporter Alison Donahue was triggered because Lucido made a joke while she was harassing him at the state Capitol in Lansing.
Michigan Advance reporter Alison Donahue played the victim and released a whiny diatribe following the supposed incident:
I asked Lucido for a moment to address the issue at hand, and he told me he would catch up with me after he was finished honoring the group of students.
As I turned to walk away, he asked, “You’ve heard of De La Salle, right?”
I told him I hadn’t.
“It’s an all boys’ school,” he told me.
“You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you.”
The teenagers burst into an Old Boys’ Network-type of laughter, and I walked away knowing that I had been the punchline of their “locker room” talk.
Lucido has said that Donahue misquoted him, but the truth of the matter does not particularly matter. Other far-left women have piled on following Donahue’s accusation, sensing blood in the water and a chance to destroy another man’s life.
Melissa Osborn, a 40-year-old regulatory affairs specialist for a trade group, is claiming that Lucido touched her “lower back/upper butt.”
“He was looking at me up and down,” she said. “And he stayed there for several minutes, making these comments about my appearance and my look and what he liked about it.”
Democratic state senator Mallory McMorrow has also alleged impropriety from Lucido that occurred in November 2018.
“He shook my hand and with his other hand held my low back with his fingers on my hips, effectively upper rear, and we had a back-and-forth conversation,” the Democrat lawmaker said.
“And he asked where I was from,” McMorrow said. “I said, ‘Royal Oak.’ He asked who I ran against. And I said, ‘I beat Marty Knollenberg.’ At which point he looked me up and down, raised his eyebrows and said, ‘I can see why.'”
She used her testimony, which Lucido categorically denies, to play the victim.
“In that moment, I was exhausted from running a campaign for a year and a half, but I remember thinking, it doesn’t matter to this person that I ran a campaign for a year and a half, that I quit my job to do that,” said McMorrow. “It doesn’t matter what my background is or if I’m suited to do this job. It was: You’re a piece of meat and of course you won this election.”
With the election right around the corner, Democrats are already preparing their dirty tricks and attempting to destroy President Trump’s surrogates.

HUGE: 5th Circuit Court Affirms Texas Abortion Ban During Coronavirus Pandemic
A big league victory for sanity.
The 5th Circuit Court has issued a decision allowing the state of Texas to ban elective abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, as medical supplies are in high demand to treat victims of the illness.
The panel made the ruling by a 2-1 margin on Tuesday. The majority cited “the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health” in making their decision.
Breaking: 5th Circuit rules for Texas in case over coronavirus abortion ban. Judge Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, cites "the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health."

Judges Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, and Jennifer Elrod, an appointee of George W. Bush, made up the majority while Judge James Dennis, a Clinton appointee, dissented with the ruling.
“That settled rule allows the state to restrict, for example, one’s right to peaceably assemble, to publicly worship, to travel, and even to leave one’s home,” the majority wrote. “The right to abortion is no exception.”
The panel also determined that the lower court erred when they refused to apply the Supreme Court’s test to determine the constitutionality of abortion restrictions. The SCOTUS test pertains to the legal review of weighing the burden on a woman’s access to abortion services against the medical benefits of the restrictions on abortion.
The majority ultimately determined that the lower court “failed to balance (the Texas restriction’s) temporary burdens on abortion against its benefits in thwarting a public health crisis.”
“The bottom line is this: when faced with a society-threatening epidemic, a state may implement emergency measures that curtail constitutional rights so long as the measures have at least some “real or substantial relation” to the public health crisis,” Judge Duncan and Judge Elrod wrote in their majority opinion.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a guidance last month declaring that all abortions “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the woman would be considered a “non-essential” medical service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors who refuse to comply and murder babies in the womb despite the order are subject to “penalties of up to $1,000 or 180 days of jail time.”
The Democrat on the panel is dismayed with the opinion of the majority and would have preferred to keep the baby-mutilating industry going in Texas while coronavirus poses a serious threat to public safety.
“In a time where panic and fear already consume our daily lives, the majority’s opinion inflicts further panic and fear on women in Texas by depriving them, without justification, of their constitutional rights, exposing them to the risks of continuing an unwanted pregnancy, as well as the risks of travelling to other states in search of time-sensitive medical care,” Dennis wrote.
Because of this ruling, Texas is permitted to make common-sense decisions to conserve medical supplies during an unprecedented crisis.
