Hosted by the Office of U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill My name is Brendan Fahey and I am a staff member for U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill. On Wednesday, March 25, 2015, on behalf of the Senator, I will be hosting a “Kitchen Table Talk” in Franklin County at the Scenic Regional Library, Union Branch (308 Hawthorne […]

Late last night, the U.S. Senate achieved a major victory for justice in America’s Armed Forces. The annual defense bill, which we passed and sent to the President for his signature, includes the most historic, substantial reforms to the military justice system in decades – designed to curb sexual assaults in the ranks. The legislation […]

BE in Union at the Scenic Regional Library (308 Hawthorne Drive) from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. TODAY!  PLEASE…see below, original email invitation at end of this post:   I think it would be a good follow up to the June 29 PSC hearing and to keep Claire’s feet to the fire. She has to have MO […]

Republican U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss chose to forget the lessons of Todd Akin and made his own uninformed  statement about rape during a hearing on Capitol Hill regarding sexual assault in the military.  There was an important conversation on Capitol Hill between the nation’s top military officials, the Senate Armed Services committee, and a bunch […]

I must admit to reading with glee the account of Senator McCaskill’s encounter with Tom Donohue, President of the U.S. Chamber of (foreign) Commerce in a Fortune article entitled Battle Ready. Last summer U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue, arguably the nation’s most powerful business lobbyist, had signed off on $3 million worth of […]

Pretty darn crazy. Todd Akin, the guy who thinks women have magic lady parts that secrete a chemical toxin that kills off rape sperm whenever there has been a, ahem, “legitimate rape,” drew nearly 46 percent of the county vote. Akin would have handily bested Sen. Claire McCaskill’s 47 percent if not for one Jonathan […]

Congratulations to Clyde and Becky Voelkerding who make a cameo appearance in Claire McCaskill’s latest TV commercial at about the 25 second mark … As cool as that is don’t let it distract you from the heart of the message: Boatloads of money are being funneled into Missouri to influence the outcome of the US […]

These are the GOP knuckleheads who want to replace Claire McCaskill this fall. More out-of-touch, 1 percenters who can’t even tell you what the Federal minimum wage is … Notice how they all fall back to the GOP’s default position on “government control of the marketplace,” while avoiding the question and hoping to God radio […]

I’m no big fan of Sen. Claire McCaskill. Too conservative for my taste. But I will say this about her, she’s unafraid to walk into hostile territory and face her adversaries. Remember back in 2010 when the frothing teabaggers were showing up in droves at town hall meetings and generally making it impossible for anyone […]

Terrific: Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill admitted Monday that she had failed to pay about $287,000 in back taxes and will sell a private plane that has created considerable controversy as she prepares to run for a second term in 2012. “I have convinced my husband to sell the damn plane,” McCaskill told reporters on […]
