Sometimes It’s Who You Most Expect: Senate Edition


The Senate’s worst Democrat remains firmly ensconced in her position.

Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein has admitted that she did not properly disclose one of her husband’s stock purchases and has said that she would be prepared to pay the relevant fine, a report has said.

In a letter to the Secretary of the Senate on 6 January, Senator Feinstein acknowledged the “previously unreported transaction conducted by my spouse” that was weeks late, Business Insider reported.

The purchase by Senator Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, was made in August 2020 and involves up to $50,000 worth of shares in College Reaction LLC, according to the outlet.

The company is a private, youth-focused polling company recently named The Generation Lab, which describes itself as a “polling and research firm studying young people and the trends that shape their world”.

I’m sure that was just an unintentional mistake…..

Meanwhile, in San Francisco:

The names of Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and other prominent figures including California Senator Dianne Feinstein will be removed from 44 San Francisco public schools, a move that stirred debate Wednesday on whether the famously liberal city has taken the national reckoning on America’s racist past too far.

The decision by the San Francisco Board of Education in a 6-1 vote Tuesday night affects one-third of the city’s schools and came nearly three years after the board started considering the idea. The approved resolution calls for removing names that honored historical figures with direct or broad ties to slavery, oppression, racism or the “subjugation” of human beings.

Changing the name of Dianne Feinstein Elementary school, named for the Democratic senator and former mayor of San Francisco, has raised eyebrows. The trailblazing 87-year-old’s star has dimmed in recent years, with dismayed liberals joining calls for her retirement last year after she embraced Republican Senator Lindsey Graham at the end of heated confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

Feinstein’s spokesman Tom Mentzer said the senator had no comment.

The committee that selected the names included Feinstein on the list because as mayor in 1984 she replaced a vandalized Confederate flag that was part of a long-standing flag display in front of City Hall. When the flag was pulled down a second time, she did not replace it.

And lest you why the heck a school named after Abraham Lincoln is being renamed, please learn about the Dakota War and the largest mass execution in American history before commenting.
