She would have my vote if I lived in Maryland. The incumbent Ben Cardin voted to extend Trumps surveillance powers, voted to make involvement with the BDS movement a felony punishable by up to a fine of 1 million dollars and/or 20 years of jail time and tried to ruin the Iran Deal

I'm just surprised she's even allowed to run for office. Aren't felons prohibited?

No, not on the Federal level. Thus why Arpaio can run. Local government may be different, since I know states have different rules on felons voting.

I don't understand why she wants to run for Senate, as that doesn't seem likely to happen, and a very odd career change.

Maryland doesn't disenfranchise

I can't imagine a better platform to tackle topics like the complete failure of legal whistle-blower systems to amount to anything, prison practices, and the police/surveillance state

I don't know. Something tells me that this traitor is unfit for public office.

I mean, she has no chance of winning, so whatever.

The weird thing is it seems like there's actually some money/influence behind her. The Bernie type people, maybe? I dunno, but it seems like someone's bankrolling this in a significant way. Kinda hilarious that people think it's viable to do that, could be a bit of an embarassment.

Legal for her to run or not, whoever she's running against is just going to have to point a finger and yell "TRAITOR", and it's basically over.

Nothing in the Constitution disqualifies a felon from serving in Congress. I was shocked to find this out.

They said that about Danica Roem.
