Tulsi Gabbard: A Mini-Trump

Representative Tulsi Gabbard, the long-shot presidential candidate from Hawaii, said in a federal lawsuit that Google infringed on her free speech when it briefly suspended her campaign’s advertising account after the first Democratic debate in June.
Ms. Gabbard and her campaign are seeking an injunction against Google from further meddling in the election and damages of at least $50 million.
Good luck with that. From January 11 through June 30th, Gabbard has raised $6,062,974.29, of which, over a third has come from her congressional campaign fund. She's raised $3.5 million in six months directly for her campaign, which is a far, far cry from her alleged damages from not being able to buy ads on Google for six hours.

Trying to fundraise via litigation is a dickish move worthy of Deadbeat Donnie.

I started getting disenchanted with Gabbard when she hustled in to buddy-buddy with Trump early on...and patted herself on the back for being all bipartisan. It's become clear that she is an more than usually an opportunist (yes, politicians do suffer from that affliction). I have watched her since with a jaundiced eye and think that, being born with a beautiful body, she has believes accordingly that she has everything coming to her. She wants to make sure she collects on her entitlement...and her 'campaign' is just part of that 'I love me' attitude.
In all fairness, she has a little more class than another woman of her sort...Sarah Palin.
Now if you want a woman politician from Hawaii with real class, committment and even statesmanship, I'd tell you to look to Mazie Hirono.
