James O’Keefe has done it again: he attended a Russ Feingold fundraiser in Silicon Valley, where one of the topics under discussion was gun control. O’Keefe recorded Feingold, the former senator who is running against Republican incumbent Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, suggesting that as president Hillary Clinton would use executive orders to limit gun rights. The hostess of the event added that Hillary “wants to shut it down,” “it” being private ownership of handguns, and “get guns away from everyone in this country.” She also mentioned imposing a limit on the number of bullets a citizen can purchase as a possible avenue of circumventing the Second Amendment. Here is the video:
The video’s release should hurt Feingold in Wisconsin, a strong gun rights state. By rights, it should hurt Hillary Clinton, too, if the news leaks out. But that would require the press to cover something other than what Donald Trump said or did ten or twenty years ago.
This is a good time for a reminder that Ron Johnson is one of this year’s Power Line Picks. His seat is very much in jeopardy, and if Feingold wins, he may well be the most left-wing member of the Senate. We urge you to contribute to Johnson campaign here.
