Having lunch with Kirsten Gillibrand tomorrow...

Not a chance that I'll support her, but my policy is that I'll meet with anyone who invites me.

to see what happens when she and Joe Biden meet on a debate stage. I wouldn't be surprised if the Hyde Amendment came up.

7. She was my congresswoman here in NY-20

 

She did a good job for the district and we were sorry to lose her. She was appointed senator by the governor when then-Senator Clinton became Obama's Secretary of State. The Democratic candidate who won the special election to replace her was terrific, but he lost the next election to a Republican.

He was snagged for numerous DWIs - and apparently spent some time in jail. He was the one who the local paper once said he "could have the job for life if he wanted it!"

Too many other things going on and I'm trying to keep a roof over my head. More fights with my brother and on Saturday night I completely collapsed in the kitchen and was on the floor for about 45 minutes. I got a bruise on my left hip bone and I'm exhausted both emotionally and physically.

20. Klobuchar didn't

 

https://www.cnn.com/2017/12/08/politics/amy-klobuchar-senate-al-franken-minnesota/index.html

In a coordinated effort, female Democratic senators called for Franken's resignation in rapid fire Wednesday. Klobuchar did not join in that effort and said in a statement at the time that she spoke with him privately. By Wednesday evening, more than two dozen senators -- including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer -- had called for Franken's resignation.

21. Yes, she did...

 

The only difference was she was kind enough not to say it publicly.

Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who serves in the Senate representing Minnesota with Al Franken, explained Friday that she didn't publicly ask Franken to resign this week because of their relationship.

"I had condemned his conduct early on when the first allegation was made," she told CNN's Dana Bash on "Inside Politics." "I felt I was in a different role as his colleague, that I'm someone that has worked with him for a long time, there's a lot of trust there, and I felt it was best to handle it in that way."

In a coordinated effort, female Democratic senators called for Franken's resignation in rapid fire Wednesday. Klobuchar did not join in that effort and said in a statement at the time that she spoke with him privately. By Wednesday evening, more than two dozen senators -- including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer -- had called for Franken's resignation.

"I talked to him about the fact that you had reached the situation with the mounting allegations and the fact that there was an ethics investigation going on," Klobuchar told CNN Friday.
