She'll plea to the speeding(not a felony) and the gun charge will go away, local jury won't convict on that charge on what they have.
If the state walks away with just a speeding charge, given that the "victim" at whom the gun was branished was a US Marshal, it is possible that she could be federally charged with intimidation of (or interference with) a federal employee under 18 USC Section 111.

Will this result in a gun rights activist unable to carry any guns in the future? Inquiring minds and all that...

Gun rights activist Kanda Calef lost concealed carry permit after I-25 arrest

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office revoked Kanda Calef’s concealed weapon permit about two weeks after the hard-line gun rights supporter was arrested.

“The (permit) suspension will remain in effect until a final resolution has been reached,” reports sheriff’s spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby.

Oregon Republican senator threatens state troopers, warns them to ‘come heavily armed’
Tensions were already smoldering in the Oregon Senate Wednesday, when Sen. Brian Boquist, R-Dallas, poured gasoline on the situation, suggesting he would shoot and potentially kill any state trooper sent to haul him unwillingly back to the Capitol.

After Senate Republican Leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said Tuesday that his caucus was “prepared to take actions” to prevent passage of a major climate change bill, Gov. Brown announced on Wednesday that she was ready to answer Republican stonewalling by calling lawmakers back for a special session.

Brown hinted that she would be willing to send state troopers to round up Republicans if they walk out in the final days of the regular legislative session, saying in a statement that she is “in close communication with Oregon State Police.” That’s an option Democratic senators and the governor did not use earlier this year, when Senate Republicans first brought the Senate to a standstill by walking out and preventing the necessary quorum.

“This is what I told the superintendent,” Boquist said, referring to OSP Superintendent Travis Hampton. “Send bachelors and come heavily armed. I’m not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon. It’s just that simple.”
:snippity:

As Willamette Week has reported, Boquist is a U.S. Army veteran whose businesses include military training and an international operation that journalists described in the 1990s as a paramilitary force of armed American and Russian ex-military officers.

Pennsylvania’s Republican Party chairman resigned after a news report that he sent sexually explicit messages to a candidate who ran unsuccessfully for Philadelphia City Council
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/25/us/p ... tw-nytimes
The chairman of Pennsylvania’s Republican Party abruptly resigned Tuesday after a news report that he sent a sexually explicit photograph of himself to a female candidate who ran unsuccessfully for Philadelphia City Council.

The report, in The Philadelphia Inquirer, said that the chairman, Val DiGiorgio, sent the candidate, Irina Goldstein, a photo of his erect penis on Facebook Messenger after exchanging messages for a few months after she accepted his friend request last October.

Mr. DiGiorgio frequently commented about Ms. Goldstein’s appearance in those messages, which The Inquirer said ended in February when Ms. Goldstein accused Mr. DiGiorgio of sexual harassment.

“I extend my deepest apologies to my family and colleagues for this unfortunate distraction,” Mr. DiGiorgio wrote Tuesday in a resignation letter shared by the state Republican Party on its website.

Since when do fuck-ups admit their wrongs and apologize without using the word "if". By today's standards in the Republican party, DiGiorgio is a hero. :?

Probably wasn't all they had on him.

From reading about it, probably because he was an adult, she was an adult, she accepted his friend request and then began to mutually engage in ongoing sexual banter with him. So of course he believed she was sexually interested in him. Except that, after sexting with him for awhile, and getting his dick pick, she eventually decided it was wrong for him to do so, and that she was a victim of their mutual sex play.

Yeah, in his position he's dumb to do anything like this. But I cannot take her claim of being a victim in good faith. She was an adult who chose to sext with a guy, until she finally decided she didn't want to anymore. End of story, full stop. She doesn't need to embellish it with a ridiculous claim of victimization.

Christ. She's an adult. Do we have to teach grownups now to not sext with strangers? C'mon.

Well, one would think that, but there is an endless, seriously, parade on assorted phones and internet sites that would seem to refute that concept ever being considered or passed around by these mega-geniuses. Then again, the generation(s) prior used to videotape and keep their escapades, so maybe it's genetic.

NowThis News wrote:State Senator Persists As Republican Man Yells Over Her for 3 Minutes

Published on 28 Jun 2019

State Senator Katie Muth refused to stop reading a letter from a man who experienced homelessness even though her male colleague tried to shout her down for minutes on end.

In US news, things got heated in the Pennsylvania capitol when Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (Republican) shouted loudly over State Senator Katie Muth. Muth was reading a letter from formerly homeless man about using Pennsylvania's General Assistance funds to pay for basic services like toothpaste and bus fare. Muth was speaking out against a bill that would end funding for Pennsylvania's poorest citizens. All but 2 GOP state senators voted to end the program.

Republicans won’t let Democrat in wheelchair phone in
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republicans who control the Wisconsin Assembly will not allow a paralyzed Democratic lawmaker who is in a wheelchair to phone into committee meetings.

Rep. Jimmy Anderson, of Fitchburg, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in a story published Monday that enforcing the legislative rule keeps him from performing his job as well as he should. Anderson said the rule discriminates against him because he has difficulty getting to some meetings because of health reasons.

But Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is unwilling to change the rule.

“I think it’s disrespectful for someone to be asking questions over a microphone or a speakerphone when individuals are actually taking the time out of their day to come and testify in person,” Vos told the Journal Sentinel. Anderson said it’s “absolutely ridiculous” to say accommodating someone with a disability would somehow be disrespectful to people.

Yabbut in the real world white-collar office jobs allow work from home and similar accommodations for people with disabilities, so this seems awfully transparent.

“We are highly disappointed in his actions and fully condemn the path which John Lambert decided to take after departing from Students for Trump’s executive board,” the group said.
