So this confidential note appeared at the end of this week's Savage Love, which went live early last night...

CONFIDENTIAL TO AMERICAN CITIZENS EVERYWHERE: Furious about Brett Kavanaugh? Me, too. That's why I donated to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Our only hope of protecting a woman's right to choose, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, the environment, organized labor—our only hope for blocking Trump's anti-everyone-and-everything agenda—is to take back the US House and Senate this November. If the Democrats control the House come January (which looks likely), they can impeach Kavanaugh; if they control the Senate come January (a longer shot but within reach), they can put Kavanaugh on trial—and that means a full investigation into all the allegations against him, including the numerous ways in which he perjured himself during his confirmation hearings.

...and this news broke this morning:

As of this writing, FiveThirtyEight’s Senate forecast gives Democrats a 28 percent chance of retaking the upper chamber this November. But Michael Bloomberg is about to buy the party a better one. This week, the billionaire (and potential 2020 candidate) pledged $20 million to the Senate Democrats super PAC... Bloomberg had previously pledged $80 million to Democratic House candidates.

NYMag's Eric Levitz credits Bloomberg's disgust with the GOP's handling of the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing. But that hearing took place last Thursday — it seems like decades ago — and Bloomberg didn't get around to making this donation until after my column went live. So it's obvious, isn't it? Michael Bloomberg is a Savage Love reader and if his $20 million donation helps the Democrats take the Senate... that was all me, baby, all me. I built that.

Savage Love Truthers will argue that Bloomberg could've made the donation immediately after the hearing and we didn't find out about it until after my column came out. I REJECT THIS HYPOTHESIS. The facts here are clear: Michael Bloomberg, billionaire, is a "Savage Love" reader and when I say jump/donate he says, "How high/much?"

Be like Mike and do what I'm telling you to do: get out your credit card and make a donation to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
