Brit Hume says Brat win will hurt GOP without immigration reform

http://twitter.com/#!/ThomasPaine5/status/476534018456842241

Fox News’ Brit Hume warned that tonight’s upset by David Brat will help the Democrats and hurt the GOP long-term “because immigration reform will never pass” and the Republicans “will have to proceed into the 2016 election without their name associated with immigration reform.”

Hume insisted that immigration reform is not amnesty, which surprised some of the other pundits on with him, including Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham.

Dr. Monica Wehby, a pediatric neurosurgeon, is running for U.S. Senate in Oregon. And if this ad is any indication, the GOP hopeful is already an effective communicator:

‘Major trouble’: House GOP hopeful Carl DeMaio accused of sexual harassment [video]

That was bizarre and.. graphic. Still processing. RT @shiracenter: WTF just happened to Carl DeMaio on CNN just now. Wow.

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) October 10, 2014

Processing what, exactly?

@NoahCRothman Don't leave us in suspense. What happened? @shiracenter

@gabrielmalor Graphic accusation of sexual harassment by former staffer in on-camera interview.

— Brian Faughnan (@BrianFaughnan) October 10, 2014

Oh dear.

So, DeMaio (R-CA) may have masturbated in a restaurant, and later sexually harassed a male aide.

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) October 10, 2014

From today’s edition of “The Lead”:

CNN has also posted a lengthy report on the allegations against openly gay GOP congressional candidate Carl DeMaio:

But behind the scenes, things are much messier. DeMaio’s former campaign policy director is accusing the candidate of sexual harassment, even saying DeMaio masturbated in front of him. DeMaio vehemently denies the allegations, saying they’re the cover story of a plagiarist and suspected criminal.

This is not the first time DeMaio has been accused of sexually inappropriate behavior. Last year, a fellow city councilman said he twice caught DeMaio masturbating in a city hall restroom — an allegation DeMaio denied.

Womp womp wommmmmp https://t.co/L7Mjh632S4 idea: don't run for office if someone can plausibly accuse you of jacking it in a restaurant

Also against his accuser. RT @katherinemiller: These are some serious accusations against DeMaio http://t.co/iAP7z5908Y

For the record, DeMaio denies the allegations:

“This is an individual that was let go by our campaign manager for plagiarism. A well-documented plagiarism incident of taking a report from the National Journal and passing it off as his own work,” DeMaio said. “He was terminated. He admitted that he plagiarized. He apologized for plagiarizing and when we told him he was no longer welcome in the staff and in the campaign office, even as a volunteer, he left. Days later, he broke in.”

In any event, it looks like DeMaio’s got a tough PR battle ahead.
