If you’re not from Iowa, you may only know Senator Joni Ernst from Trump’s impeachment trial, where she voted against having witnesses, made headlines by vaguely threatening Joe Biden, and voted to acquit Trump on all charges. Or you may know her from her ah, groundbreaking campaign ads from her first run for Senate in 2014, which touted her skills in hog castration. Yes, we’re serious. Here’s the link.
Residents of Iowa may know that she has an ‘A’ rating from the NRA. And why wouldn’t she? The only senator to come out as a survivor of domestic abuse, she’s been holding up the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act because it prevents convicted stalkers and domestic abusers from owning firearms.
Yes, we’re serious. Here’s the link. Joni Ernst wrote her own terrible version of VAWA that has no gun control regulations and does not include protections for Indigenous and LGBTQ+ Americans and that is why the Violence Against Women Act has not been renewed.
We could write a lot more about Joni and her bad policies, but the fact that she is willing to hold up such an important piece of legislation for such awful reasons says it all. Joni replaced a Democrat in 2014. If we can register enough voters in Iowa, we can replace her in 2020.
Can you help us register voters in Iowa today?
Help us register new voters in Colorado and get rid of one of the biggest liars in the Senate.
