Biden Loses Key Nominee After Senate Resistance

One would think with the Dems holding the Senate, Joe Biden would be on cruise control right now, but that is not the case.

Instead, Joe Biden has found himself continuing to struggle to get cabinet officials confirmed.

This week, he lost a key nominee, reports Fox News.


Gigi Sohn, President Biden's embattled pick for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), has withdrawn her nomination.

As we expected, all Republicans were against the nomination, but Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) joining that resistance meant the nomination was destined to fail.

Manchin has been on a tear ever since his amendment that would have helped him get a pipeline in West Virginia was removed from a bill.

Sohn whined to the media, stating, "When I accepted his nomination over sixteen months ago, I could not have imagined that legions of cable and media industry lobbyists, their bought-and-paid-for surrogates, and dark money political groups with bottomless pockets would distort my over 30-year history as a consumer advocate into an absurd caricature of blatant lies.

"The unrelenting, dishonest and cruel attacks on my character and my career as an advocate for the public interest have taken an enormous toll on me and my family," reports CNN.

All I heard was WAAAAAA, see ya!

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been against Sohn from the outset, exposing the fact that she had made financial donations to Senators who were going to oversee her confirmation.

Cruz stated, "The withdrawal of Ms. Sohn's nomination is a major victory and represents a strong bipartisan agreement that we need a fair and impartial candidate who can receive the support needed for confirmation.

"The FCC is not a place for partisan activists; free speech is too important. Now, it's time for the Biden administration to put forth a nominee who can be confirmed by the full Senate and is committed to serving as an even-handed and truly independent regulator."

Democrats have two Senators out sick, and the GOP is taking full advantage. Great job!
