Electoral Votes Controlled By Moscow, Rep. Brad Sherman Says

Above, Rep. Brad Sherman
Well, it's been a while since I last reported on any dumb statement or action by Rep. Brad Sherman, who just happens to be the congressman in my district. In fact, I supported Sherman over former Rep. Howard Berman a few years ago when reapportionment put the two into the same district.

But, sooner or later, Sherman was bound to say or do something stupid. And he has done so this week.

PoliZette reported:
A Democratic congressman from California on Monday said President-Elect Donald Trump’s pro-Russian posture helped him win “Electoral College votes that are controlled in Moscow.” 
Rep. Brad Sherman’s statement came in response to a question by CNN anchor Carol Costello about alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election. She wanted to know if Sherman believed Trump himself was “in cahoots” with the Russians. He said probably not, but suggested that direct participation by Trump was irrelevant. 
"The fact is, in the campaign, Trump said things that would have hurt him — just a little bit — with American voters, but it helped him with the Electoral College votes that are controlled in Moscow," he said. "And Moscow returned the favor." 
Sherman backed off after Costello challenged him on that preposterous assertion. He conceded that Moscow does not, in fact, control Electoral College votes and acknowledged that there were dozens of other factors in Trump's surprise victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Although Sherman tried to walk back his comments, he still made those remarks and they are now in the public record. Jeez.

Note the corrupt GOP Senators with John McCain are working hand-in-hand with the Democrats in the phony Russian hacking hearings. Both sides are there to screw over Trump. The two party system is an illusion.

"There are no sides. There's no Sunnis and Shiites. There's no Democrats and Republicans. There's only HAVES and HAVE-NOTS.
This is a country, where the Secretary of Defense can go on T.V., and tell the American public, oh, that "This is about freedom! It's not about oil!" And nobody questions him, cuz they don't wanna hear the answer, because it's a lie! There are only so many places at the table, Gunnie. Now, are you on the INSIDE, or are you on the OUT?"
