John Fetterman was forced to make a stunning announcement.
It hasn’t been a good year for him.
And now his decision has put Democrats in a major bind.
It’s been a rough road for John Fetterman ever since he was elected to the Senate from the state of Pennsylvania.
A Fox News article from June showed just how bad Fetterman’s approval ratings had gotten.
“According to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday, half of Keystone State voters disapprove of Fetterman’s job handling, while only 39% approve. President Biden, a Scranton native, has a worse approval rating in the state, with 57% of Pennsylvanians disapproving of his job handling as president, while 39% approve,” Fox News reported.
These numbers sent Fetterman into a panic, as well as his staff. They knew they had to do something quick to shore up his popularity ratings.
That’s why they decided to take aim at New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez.
Menendez is a career criminal who is now under federal indictment. Fetterman knew that, by going after him, he could potentially win over the independent voters in his state.
In September, after the indictments were announced, Fetterman said it was time for Menendez to resign.
And this week, in an appearance on The View, Fetterman went one step further and said Menendez needs to be expelled.
According to The Hill, “Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) renewed his call Friday for the Senate to vote to expel Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), calling the criminal allegations against the New Jersey lawmaker ‘more sinister’ than the charges facing Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), who was just expelled from the House.”
“Fetterman called on Senate colleagues to oust Menendez after host Joy Behar asked him about Santos’s expulsion during an interview on ABC’s ‘The View.’”
This announcement by Fetterman puts Democrats in a serious bind, as Menendez is one of their top Senators.
The party is extremely sensitive about its members attacking one another, and they cannot be happy with Fetterman for saying these things.
The article continues, “Fetterman said Santos’s ‘lies were almost, you know, funny’ like he ‘landed on the moon and that kind of stuff.’”
“’Whereas, I think Menendez, I think is really a senator for Egypt, not New Jersey. So, I really think he needs to go,” he added.
“Fetterman made his comments after the House voted 311-114 to expel Santos.”
Regardless of whether Menendez actually gets expelled, this is a brutal and embarrassing moment for the Democrat Party.
They’ve tried to attack Republicans for the lies told by George Santos, even though Republicans conducted a fair investigation of Santos and ultimately decided to expel him.
Meanwhile, Democrats have not done the same for Menendez, even though, as Fetterman said, his crimes are far worse.
Menendez is yet another example of the rampant corruption in the Democrat Party.
And John Fetterman is hoping that his attacks on Menendez are enough to save his seat in Pennsylvania.
