Minutes after Sen. Susan Collins announced her support for Brett Kavanaugh, the site to fund her opponent was so overwhelmed that it crashed

Good. Vote all of these terrible people out of office as soon as possible.

Minutes after Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine announced her decision to vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, a site raising money for Collins’ eventual opponent in her 2020 reelection bid crashed.

Collins was one of the undecided votes in the judge’s controversial nomination. In an effort to convince Collins that there would be consequences if she voted to support him, a group of people from Maine launched a crowdfunding campaign on a site called Crowdpac.

The campaign asked people to pledge money to back the person who will challenge Collins in 2020 if she voted to confirm Kavanaugh. If she doesn’t vote for Kavanaugh, the pledges would be void.

The site was so overwhelmed with people rushing to donate to the campaign that its internet connection couldn’t take the traffic, pushing it offline, Crowdpac confirmed to Business Insider.

Thanks to Meatypuffs for this one!

Hi Chris,

Love the blog, I’m so glad you’re sticking with it. I have been reading for over ten years now and can’t even recall how I stumbled upon your site, but I’m thankful I did.

Attached is a photo of my dog, Apollonia, if you’re willing to bend the rules a bit on the guest blogging. She’s a mix of purebred golden retriever and whatever was walking through the alley one evening, which I suspect had quite a bit of blue heeler in him. It’s going to be cold here in Nebraska and the ongoing Kavanaugh saga is going to make me not want to leave my bed this weekend, so her and I will be doing a lot of cuddling to get through it. Apollonia turns two years old on Monday. Hopefully she’ll learn to share the bed. She’s a very good girl.
