Ralph Shortey, a former Oklahoma state senator who last year served as Donald Trump’s campaign chair in the state, was meticulous about keeping up his reputation as a pious man, according to several fellow Oklahomans.

Mitch McConnell has announced he’s coordinating with the White House for Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. Norm Ornstein tells Ari Melber that “to basically admit before you start the trial that it’s rigged is just quite astonishing” and says he doubts many Republicans will be happy about that. Joyce Vance adds that McConnell’s comments mean that the Senate trial is a “rigged jury” and Trump can never truly be exonerated.Ornstein: McConnell’s admission is ‘a flat violation of the oath he will take as a juror’

Man Who Pushed To Ask Bill Clinton Sexually Explicit Questions Bemoans Dirty Politics

Kayleigh McEnany called Trump comment ‘racist,’ ‘hateful’ and ‘not the American way’ in 2015 — CNN Politics

If You Voted for Donald Trump, You Owe My Children an Apology

One of those men was Craig, at the time a three-term Republican Senator with a history of support for anti-gay policies — he voted in favor of the military’s odious Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy back in 1993 (as did many Democrats, it bears mentioning), opposed same-sex marriage, domestic partnership benefits, and didn’t want hate crimes laws to cover sexual orientation. The other man was a plainclothes cop. Can you guess where this is going?

Basically, as alleged by the police officer (and pleaded guilty to by Craig before he desperately tried to retract it), the oh-so-anti-gay Senator attempted to solicit gay sex in the airport bathroom. Here’s how CNN reported it at the time: https://www.bustle.com/articles/73548-what-is-larry-craig-doing-now-the-scandal-and-its-aftereffects-were-hard-to-shake

Why American conservatism failed Today’s crisis of conservatism has produced surprisingly few books that try to understand what exactly has happened to the venerable creed. For decades, conservatism was a dominant ideology in the Western world, championed by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. Now, it has quietly collapsed. President Trump’s populism has taken over the Republican Party, and Brexit fever has consumed Britain’s Conservative leaders.
