Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse Gets Exposed as ‘Conflicts of Interest’ Hypocrite

Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse Gets Exposed as ‘Conflicts of Interest’ Hypocrite

“@SenWhitehouse attacks Supreme Court Justices on alleged conflicts of interests, but he’s taken significant action to benefit Ocean Conservancy (@OurOcean), where his wife has worked … as Marine Spatial Planner & been paid $2.4 million. Interactions are troubling.”

Despite their repeated claims over the last several years that Republicans are dangers to America because of their supposed attempts at “undermining our democratic norms” and delegitimizing “our sacred institutions,” it is Democrats who have absolutely been the worst offenders on that front, as most recently demonstrated by their coordinated attacks on the conservative Supreme Court Justices, falsely accusing them of “conflicts of interest.”

One of the most prominent Democrats leading the radical left’s fight to delegitimize the Supreme Court in its current form has been Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), who not only continues to keep hope alive that one day he’ll finally get Justice Brett Kavanaugh impeached from the Supreme Court but who has also literally threatened our nation’s highest court with political retribution if he didn’t get his way on a Second Amendment case they were hearing.

Whitehouse has gone from pathetically grilling Kavanaugh on a high school yearbook fart joke and attacking Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife Ginni over her conservative political activism (falsely accusing her of “a role in the insurrection“) to using conveniently timed hit pieces on Clarence Thomas to push Joe Biden’s Dept. of Justice to investigate Thomas for “potential violations of the Ethics in Government Act,” citing supposed conflicts of interest and failure to disclose.

The problems with Whitehouse’s push for DOJ action on Thomas are twofold. Firstly and most importantly, the “conflict of interest” and “failure to disclose” claims against Thomas are false, as the Wall Street Journal documented in detail here, here, and here.

The second problem is that Whitehouse, not surprisingly, is a “Rules for Thee” Democrat, believing the rules should apply to everyone else but not to him, as explained by Thomas biographer and friend Mark Paoletta in a recent thread:

Keep in mind, too, that Whitehouse himself once recommended for and got the nomination of a Democrat megadonor to a federal judgeship who just so happened to also have donated to Whitehouse.

Whitehouse, as Legal Insurrection has extensively documented, is a conspiracy nutter and raging hypocrite on multiple fronts. But it’s his bogus attacks on the integrity of the conservative Supreme Court Justices, wrapped within the tattered banners of “transparency” and “accountability,” that are perhaps his most insidious.

He’s a piker compared to Pelosi, the Clintons, et al.

    “where his wife has worked … as Marine Spatial Planner & been paid $2.4 million.”
    I finally understand why the membership in the exclusive whites-only beach club is in her name.

I’m not an expert on non-profit compensation, but, by any reasonable measure paying the wife of a dim-witted and obnoxious Dumb-o-crat Senator $150 grand annually, over sixteen years, as a “Marine Spatial Planner” sounds fairly profligate. Shades of Michelle Obama’s do-nothing, six-figure salaried job as head of “Diversity” at U. of Chicago Hospital, here.

“Senator Whitehouse, here in your yearbook it says that as a member of the Student Democratic Club, you attended parties where you won prizes for ‘grifting.’ Could you explain the meaning of that term, sir?”

Whitehouse is the prototype progressive fraud, combined with pomposity, as he peers over his glasses and acts as if he has compassion and care. It’s structly ideology and easy to see through. If not for his family name, would he have any success with his schtick?

Speaking of being exposed, reporter Julio Rosas blew Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) away in Congress on Tuesday after the latter mocked his journalism credentials. Check it out:

    Just when you think that Dumb-o-crat apparatchiks can’t get any more noxious than the vile, narcissistic and dim-witted demagogues in the Occasional-Cortex, Rashida Tlaib or Mazie Hirono mold, along comes an obnoxious and arrogant twit such as Goldman, to surprise you.

Shades of Michelle O and her “Job” at the big Chicago hospital where she was paid an enormous sum for nothing. We’ll never know what funds were aimed her way by obama and his cronies.

Whenever I see his photo, fetal alcohol syndrome leaps to mind.

Isn’t he the fake Vietnam vet, or is that some other lying Democrat hypocrite(s)…. They all look so alike.

It’s depressing how my fellow Americans have such low standards to keep sending these frauds back to DC to eff everyone over. For decades. Depressing.

    You are thinking of Blumenthal (D, Vietnam), who resides in Connecticut.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Liberty. | May 18, 2023 at 6:14 pm

      And who served in Vietnam.

        CommoChief in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 18, 2023 at 8:07 pm

        Blumenthal didn’t serve in Vietnam. He applied for a bunch of deferments over five or six years then found a way into the USMC Reserves in DC.

        He was a reservist during the the Vietnam era which is a far cry from serving in Vietnam much less serving in combat operations in Vietnam.

Sheldon is just the quintessential, full-of-himself gasbag who ain’t too bright. Kind of in the league of John Kerry.

I can’t understand why people can’t see this. Why does anyone give this jerk 1 minute of their time of they don’t have to?

People who live in ethical glass houses should never throw stones alleging a lack of ethics by an adversary

His ‘wife’? Hell, I thought he was non-binary. Creeps face reminds me of a string trimmer.

He’s never been anything other than a liberal hack.

He seems to be a caricature of every hack character played by Phil Hartman over his career

    CommoChief in reply to MajorWood. | May 18, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    That’s an observation that makes a ton of sense. Now every time I see this goon on TV I’ll have Phil Hartmann popping into my mind.
