Avenatti tweeted about this yesterday.

The porn star's lawyer is now a Washington insider.

I hate this timeline.

I saw a link on Facebook of potential 2020 Democrat candidates polling against Trump and Avenatti was on there. This is indeed the darkest timeline

Whatever it takes.

If he is able to raise enough money to be competitive is there any reason why he should not be considered for candidacy?

On the face of it he'd be a more skillful and principled legislator than the current office holder. The issue is that prior to this particular crazy train of destiny, we generally chose between prestigious and talented public figures with prior experience in governance.

There was a time when the fact that Michael Avenatti hadn't so much as served on his condo association's review board would be considered disqualifying for high office. Some of us are just mournful that that time has passed.

Really?

I was informed that the DNC grooms candidates for all levels based on their ability to fundraise. Was I misinformed?

A low-effort attempt even for you.
