Bill Maher Announces ‘Crummy, Corrupt’ Rep. He’s Targeting for Midterms
Bill Maher ended his live D.C. show tonight by announcing the winner of his “Flip a District” campaign: Republican Congressman John Kline.
For months, Maher has been going down a list of potential Republicans to target for this November’s midterms with the goal of “flipping” their district to the other party. He went through a few dozen choices before settling on Kline.
Maher will be traveling to Kline’s district to do stand-up, and he explained why this congressman––whom you probably never heard of––is his big target: because he’s “the living embodiment of legislation for hire.” He called Kline a “silent threat” who doesn’t say “kooky things” but votes with the people who do.
Maher said hopefully, this can serve as a symbol for the “crummy, corrupt representation” America has nowadays.
