On Tuesday, Popular Information broke the news that the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) accepted a $50,000 contribution from Children's Health Defense, an anti-vaccine propaganda group led by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The donation, as Children's Health Defense admitted in a statement, was illegal. But it also reveals how Republican Attorneys General are working closely with a fringe group to spread misinformation.
I am very disappointed to report that even though I have had two Pfizer shots & the booster, I still have to use the remote control to change channels on my TV….
Seriously, why would anyone think that RFK, Jr. is an expert on vaccinations?
I live in Florida, & I thought that “Red Tide Rick” Scott was the worst possible Governor, until Ron DeathSantis won (barely, with a margin of 0.4%) & has tried to outTrump Trump. He has suppressed reporting on COVID cases & deaths, & is against mask mandates & vaccination requirements, threatening large fines for those who do require them. I hope that this fall we can elect a Governor that believes in Science, so we need to turn Florida BLUE.
Thanks, Judd. The Misinformation Pit gets deeper and deeper. You perform a great service in exposing it.
RFK, Jr., is rapidly evolving into one of the most evil, mendacious individuals in our society. He brings shame to that family's name on a daily basis.
I know it's not the central focus of this piece, but what's going on in Ottawa is both mind-boggling and frightening to me. There's a lot of chatter lately about "moving past COVID" amid prospective plans to roll back mask mandates. Not only does the virus, you know, not care about our feelings, though, but the scars, psychic and bodily, will persist beyond an end to the pandemic that yet seems far off.
What is happening? That’s intended to be rhetorical. Also, congrats for inspiring DAGA to pressure RAGA. It’s been a good week for PI.
So many threads I have downright missed, all tied together here. Thank you PI! —I did hear Trudeau & others call for an end to the de facto embargo which is costing Canadian jobs and well being. Frustrating to watch US insanity creep northwards.
Did Children's Health Defense also seek opportunities to "educate" AGs in the Democratic Attorneys General Association? If not, it looks like RFK Jr. just illegally funneled $$$ to GOP politicians. Great work, Judd and Tesnim!
A Republican organization of, basically, REPUBLICAN ATTORNEYS, accepting an illegal contribution? Oh, say it isn't so!! Not even gonna' get started on this one.
