Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has done everything an uber-conservative is supposed to do to successfully sue his hometown newspaper and Twitter trolls: He filed multi-million dollar lawsuits, immediately alerted Fox News to the developments and then went on Sean Hannity to shout about his victimhood.

But he seems to have forgotten to do one thing — actually serve the defendants.

He's maybe being advised by Orbly, or GIL or maybe Judy??? Sounds like their approach such things.

Anyone know this dude? Was following me today.
It's bad enough when people post a photo of a guy on, say, a train, and that he was talking smack about his wheelchair-bound wife, so it goes viral and thousands of commenters blow gaskets talking about how awful this guy is . . . without knowing that he ever said any of the things the original poster said. I looked at this photo, posted by a congressman, the same way. Especially since he doesn't exactly seem to be behind Nunes, following.

It turns out he is an activist who likes to question congress members. And thanks to Nunes' tweet, he's gone from a handful of followers to thousands.

From that story. Devin is a grifter right up there with Sheriff Joe and Donald.
According to the most recent Federal Election Commission’s filings, Nunes raised nearly $350,000 in the last two weeks of March, right after he filed his first lawsuit against Twitter, Mair and two troll accounts — his “cow” and his “mom” — for $250 million. Similar to his rollout of the suit against McClatchy and Mair for $150 million, Fox News was first to report on the lawsuit, and Nunes went to the network for an interview with Sean Hannity.

The Fresno Bee was first to note the uptick in fundraising during the 12-day span between when the first suit was filed (March 19) and the last day of the filing period (March 31). Of the $348,000 he raised in that timeframe, more than half of the donations came from donors outside the state of California. For context, Nunes has raised about $1.2 million total so far in 2019. It’s not yet clear how much he’s raised since the McClatchy suit was filed.

McClatchy lawyer Ted Boutrous told TPM the motive for the lawsuit against the publisher appears to be in part political and in part designed to intimidate the press.

“It really is just baffling,” he told TPM. “It’s really pretty transparent that they’re misusing the justice system as part of a political and PR ploy. And I don’t think the courts are going to take kindly to that. … I’ve had many cases where it was clear that a party filed a lawsuit to achieve other objectives, but this is so blatant, so inappropriate, so baseless. It may be one for the record books.”

Nunes lawyer, Steven S. Biss of Charlottesville — who had his license suspended for a year by the Virginia State Bar in 2009 for violating conflict of interest rules with a client — and a spokesperson for his congressional office did not immediately return TPM’s request for comment.

Twitter has filed its response. Predictably its a motion to dismiss.

The likely result is going to be a transfer to N.D. Cal. (there's a forum-selection clause in Twitter's TOU). And then a dismissal.

It looks like 82 pages of well reasoned argument, that can be summarized as "Pound Sand!", or in the alternative, more rude expressions.

Democrats line up for chance to take down Devin Nunes
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/ ... lid=964328
SAN FRANCISCO — Rep. Devin Nunes — the lightning rod House Intelligence Committee member who was nearly knocked off in the midterm — will face a 2020 Democratic challenge from a Fresno Latino businessman who charges the California GOP congressman has been silent on the proposed “Trump tax” tariffs that he says will slam Central Valley farmers and consumers.

Phil Arballo, 40, a financial adviser, cites Nunes’ unflagging support of President Trump’s policies as evidence that the seven-term Republican has failed to stay in touch with the economic concerns of his Central Valley constituents. Of special concern, he said, has been Nunes’ failure to stand up for farmers and business people when it comes to Trump’s calls for tariffs on goods from Mexico, California’s largest trading partner
:snippity:
Arballo, the third Democrat to file for the seat, has received the strong backing of Andrew Janz, who raised $9.2 million in a surprisingly close 2018 loss to Nunes in the Republican-oriented district.

Good news as far as it goes, but its depressing that they've been okay with the first 3,984,824 other things he's done. Hell, just the treason ought to count for something.
