A new day, a new friend 🐧✨

Just a penguin dance throwback from the before times 🐧🐥

Today in the NYT there’s a story about how imagining activities & scenes to look forward to can help us with difficult times during the pandemic.

I’m looking forward to big dinners w/ friends & live shows. How about you?

Any members who voted to overturn the election* but also some have indicated they may suspend political donations in general, at least for the time being

The way you can tell if a company actually means it is if they say they aren’t giving to any members PERIOD or at bare minimum this *cycle.*

Reminder you can also elect members who don’t take corporate money at all, & are funded by small dollar donations from everyday people 😉

Quoted @slpng_giants

CONFIRMED: @pfizer will suspend donations to any of the Congresspeople who voted against certifying the vote last week for at least six months.

The issue w this is that donations are not done by months, they’re measured by election cycles.

It’s pretty normal for a member to not get a max-out check in the first 6 mos. This announcement doesn’t mean much bc they can still max out to ppl who undermined the election in July

I will not stop talking about how I was ready to fight for my life.

I will not stop talking about hearing the insurrectionists on the other side of the door.

I will not stop talking about being forced into a superspreader event.

Hold EVERYONE involved fully accountable.

Last January I was sworn in for my first term in Congress.

So, what have we accomplished since then?

Let’s take 2(ish) minutes to review.
