Susan Collins' honorary degree should be rescinded, nearly 1,500 St. Lawrence University faculty, alumni say
Nearly 1,500 St. Lawrence University alumni and faculty are calling on the school to rescind an honorary degree Sen. Susan Collins was awarded last year because of her vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
A more moderate Republican, Collins was targeted by liberal activists and those opposed to Kavanaugh particularly after allegations of sexual assault came to light who thought she could abandon her party and vote against confirming the judge. But ahead of the vote, Collins said she didn't believe the charges could "fairly prevent Judge Kavanaugh from serving on the Court.
Kavanaugh, who vehemently denied the decades-old sexual misconduct claims against him, was confirmed in a narrow 50-48 vote despite testimony from accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

I hope every RINO is watching this any Republican who thinks that if they are just nice enough to give in to the left will be left alone I think this tells the tale they dont care they will come after you and I hope shes tough as nails,
I can see this, as a case, going all the way to the Supreme Court.
An extreme right politician is a moderate republican who has been mugged by the left.
Hey Senator has Ben Sasse from NE
Take a good look. You wonder why we have “gotten tribal”? Take a good look at this root cause.
Universities, supposed bastions of “free thought”, have for decades but using intimidation and mob violence to silence any views that challenge their neo Marxist dogmas.
....with this vote of Collins, here’s one white, conservative male that has concluded that she deserves a lot more respect from me and from freepers in general... .
If I were her, I would just return the Honorary Degree that is the subject of this liberal hissy fit!
She should return the degree and offer an internship paid gap year position for a deserving high school graduate.
“more moderate Republican, Collins”
The leftmost Republican in federal elected office, I believe.
She’s left of many Democrats, but she has a work ethic.
Let’s rescind the so-called school’s accreditation instead.
I’m sure that this will cause her many sleepless night.
I don’t know what you are saying.
This is what the filthy bastard democrat MOB does. They only know how to destroy good people.
Every Senator who voted for Kavanaugh needs security guards.
