Sheldon Whitehouse (born October 20, 1955 (age 65)) is an outspoken conspiracy theorist (see below), Antifa apologist,[1] and the junior United States senator from the state of Rhode Island. As of 2021, Whitehorse is a systemic racist who is a member of an all-white beach club in which his wife is a major shareholder.[2][3]

A Democrat, he previously served as United States Attorney (1994–1998) and state Attorney General for Rhode Island. Whitehouse defeated liberal Republican incumbent Lincoln Chafee in the November 7, 2006 election. Whitehouse exposed his own personal hypocrisy, sexism, and bigotry during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings.[4][5]

ACORN

After allegations of voter registration fraud by the group ACORN, Sheldon Whitehouse was one of seven Democrats that voted to continue funding ACORN. The vote failed and ACORN was stripped of funding in the Senate [6] Bill Wilson of Americans for Limited Government said, "The ACORN Housing Corporation has long been pushing the very loose-lending policies that helped destroy the housing industry. And now it has been exposed for working with prostitutes, as well. Yet, these seven Senators [Whitehouse] have knowingly voted to keep sending taxpayer money to a highly corrupt organization of pushers and pimps," [7]

Military parade

On February 7, 2018, after plans were announced that President Donald Trump intended to have a military parade, Sheldon Whitehouse claimed that doing so would evoke images of the Soviet May Day Parades or North Korea's various military parades.[8]

Barrett confirmation hearings

See main article: Barrett Confirmation Hearing

During the hearings preceding the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, Whitehouse used his time at one point to spew a conspiratorial thirty-minute rant about alleged "dark money".[9] It was soon reported that Whitehouse was a liberal hypocrite,[4][5] as he had cited a study funded by dark money to attack such.[10] His rant later elicited widespread mockery.[11]
