The state of our Supreme Court

Hank Johnson for Congress and our work to fix it.   John,  Billionaires have been quietly working to influence the Supreme Court for years, and some of the right-wing justices on the Court have proved quite amenable to those billionaires’ outreach. The justices have accepted gifts, fr…

“I don’t trust nobody and nobody trusts me”

Hank Johnson for Congress I wouldn’t call myself a Swiftie, but there’s no other way to read this excuse from Clarence Thomas. John — guess what? Justice Clarence Thomas filed his financial disclosure forms at the end of August, and for the first time ever, he reported (at least some …

The truth will set us free

Hank Johnson for Congress …if only it’s made available to us. John, The more we learn about Donald Trump’s actions after the 2020 presidential election, the clearer it becomes to me that all Americans deserve to know exactly what transpired behind closed doors — Trump supporters and o…

What exactly was Brian Kemp fixing?

Hank Johnson for Congress SB 202 didn’t target voter fraud. It targeted voters.   Gov. Brian Kemp said Trump was wrong. Whoop de doo. He was five years too late John. Democrats predicted in 2015 the incredible danger Donald Trump posed, and no one heaped high praise on us. It’s time to…

“some basic realities”

Hank Johnson for Congress That’s what Fani Willis told Jim Jordan to deal with.   We’ve all thought it. Hank’s even said as much to Jim Jordan’s face during hearings But Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has a way with words, and she wrote to MAGA acolyte Jim Jordan: "It is t…

“Do exactly as I say...”

Hank Johnson for Congress It’s a line normally heard from bank robbers and hostage takers. Congress JUST got back from recess, John, and McCarthy’s MAGA Majority is already threatening to grind everything to a halt. But don’t worry! They’re willing to negotiate terms. For example, fel…

We're building, building, building

Hank Johnson for Congress But we can't do it without you. Hey John, We’ll keep this super quick! With Georgia hanging in the balance and the GOP pushing all sorts of voter suppression tactics here in Hank’s district, we’re in a bad place if we can’t meet our 24-hour $1,500 fundraising…

Hank Johnson for Congress Hi John,  I just checked my fundraising spreadsheet and yikes. We’re still behind by over $1,500 for August. I’m trying to make up some serious ground, set the stage to counter the GOP’s voter suppression tactics here at home, and push my court reform package in DC. M…

The *definition* of impropriety

Hank Johnson for Congress I need Clarence Thomas and his billionaire friends to take me seriously when I call them out. John, Supreme Court justices are supposed to avoid even the appearance of impropriety. Someone needs to tell that to Clarence Thomas. Enjoying 38 destination vacati…

What’s the problem, Ron?

Hank Johnson for Congress Can someone get this poor man a mirror? Ron DeSantis’ campaign is in hot water, John. He’s fired more staffers in the last few months than any of us can keep track of, and his poll numbers keep tanking. He’s lost big GOP donors — and even got uninvited from …

We’re not like him

Hip hop turns 50 today

Hank Johnson for Congress Black culture is under attack, John. John – Hip hop was born as a means of self expression. Most people agree that it came into being 50 years ago today at a back-to-school party in the Bronx. Not in a studio. Not on a concert stage. At a house party.  It sta…

We have a really hard choice to make

Hank Johnson for Congress … and it’s decision time. We’ve hit a decision point, John – We’re now far enough behind our fundraising goal for the last two months, that we’re going to have to consider cutting back our budget. This is NOT where we want to be — not as the GOP is funneling …
