You Called the Cops Over What?

Clearly a Threat to the Republic

It appears Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) is the biggest Karen in the Senate, which surprises me, because I always had Ted Cruz or Lindsay Graham, or Josh Hawley, but none of them have epitomized the Karen ethos as succinctly and completely as has the distinguished gentlewoman from Maine, who called the cops in response to someone writing on the sidewalk in front of her house that she should support enacting Roe v. Wade into federal law.

This was done with chalk. It washes away in the rain, or with a garden hose, but she felt entitled to call the cops, because ……… Karen.

Nice use of taxpayer funds:

Sen. Susan Collins called police over the weekend after an unknown person or persons wrote a pro-abortion rights message in chalk on the sidewalk outside her West Broadway home in Bangor.

“Susie, please, Mainers want WHPA — –> vote yes, clean up your mess,” the message read, according to a Bangor police report.

WHPA refers to the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify the right to abortion into law and ban restrictions on abortion access.

Bangor police responded to Collins’ West Broadway home at 9:20 p.m. Saturday after she complained about a message written in chalk on her sidewalk, the report said.

“The message was not overtly threatening,” spokesperson Wade Betters said. Bangor police called the Department of Public Works to wash the message away, Betters said. The message was not visible on Monday afternoon.

Seriously. If you cannot deal with a non threatening chalk on your sidewalk about policy, you have no business in politics.

BTW, the chalk is back.
