A well-known U.S. Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is polling at an embarrassingly low level, trailing other Democrats with little-to-no experience in national politics.

CNN’s Ryan Struyk posted the results of the latest Monmouth poll, showing Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) way down at the bottom of the field.

She trails former San Antonio, Texas mayor Julian Castro, Californian entrepreneur Andrew Yang who has become something of an internet meme recently, South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), who has not even declared his candidacy.

Former Vice President Joe Biden tops the list of candidates, despite not having announced his candidacy, either. The Monmouth poll also shows that Americans still have plenty of love for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who is polling in second place.

As for Gillibrand, she found herself embroiled in a #MeToo style scandal late Sunday and early Monday.

Big League Politics reported:

A U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential hopeful kept an aide on her staff despite multiple accusations of sexual harassment, according to several Monday report.

“The military adviser to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 presidential candidate who has been an outspoken supporter of the #MeToo movement and a campaigner against sexual misconduct in the military, kept his job despite allegations he sexually harassed a junior female aide,” according to Washington Examiner.

The female aide and alleged victim of the misconduct resigned in protest over the way Gillibrand handled her complaints. She is described as mid-20’s, married and apparently Gillibrand officiated her wedding.

The military advisor, who has now been terminated, is Abbas Malik. He was only fired after media inquiries into his alleged misconduct.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County

Published

on

Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.

Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:

“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”

The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.

“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”

Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
