He hasn't been discharged. He's been removed from the rescue effort and they've started an investigation. There's a whole long process before he gets kicked out, assuming he does. 

 

Oh, boo.  Okay, thanks for clarifying that.  I had a feeling that was too quick but that's what I get for looking at the subtweets.

Murkowski and Collins don't give a damn. It's taken a long time for people to see this about Collins but maybe they will now.

Sadly, I agree.

Most people can't even name one person on the Supreme Court so I'm not sure it will change anything, but hopefully it will at least motivate the usual types who sit at home for purity reasons.
