Republicans Mock Nunes Over Lawsuit Frenzy


Campaign 2020 Congress Law Republicans
Republicans Mock Nunes Over Lawsuit Frenzy
Oliver Willis August 13, 2019


Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is being ridiculed and criticized by his fellow California Republicans for suing his own constituents in his congressional district.

Nunes has been in a frenzy of lawsuits lately. He sued Twitter over people making fun of him, and he sued McClatchy, the parent of the Fresno Bee newspaper. Nunes was angered when the Bee reported on his involvement with a winery busted for a fundraiser that allegedly involved drugs and prostitution.

The latest lawsuit “is Nunes’ third in which he alleges that political consultants conspired against him to damage his chances for re-election last year,” McClatchy reported on Thursday.

Nunes is suing four Californians, including retired farmer Paul Buxman, who told the paper he voted for Nunes in the past.

“There seems to be no strategy other than to attack his enemies,” Republican consultant Kevin Spillane told McClatchy. “He should focus on working his district and stay out of the politics of Washington, D.C.”


Spillane also told the outlet that the lawsuit does not help the growing belief that Nunes is increasingly disconnected from his district’s concerns, as Democrats have noted.

9. Hence all the lawsuits?

I'm not in his district but Nunes does seems to have a man crush on ol' Trumpy, his hero.

I wish he would set up a non-FB homepage; oh well

Good Progressive candidate. Here's from his homepage:

Our opponent is funded by big money special interests, we are a grassroots campaign. NO special interests, NO corporate PACs. Just people like you!

Please chip in today to help show the country that the Central Valley is ready for change!

7. So he's suing the people upon whom his job relies, the voters in his district?

Wow. I am increasingly worried about Irony. It may not be dead, but it sure is tottering!

8. Has this ASSHOLE ever read the First Amendment ?

Every one of his lawsuits should be dismissed "with prejudice."

11. Nunes is showing signs of classic paranoia.

Litigiousness, delusions of conspiracy against him, disconnection from legitimate job responsibilities, inflexibility, etc.

It would appear that the entire Republican Party is suffering its own mental-health issues.

Vote these seriously disturbed individuals OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT.
