Puzder Out

Now we know what it takes to get Republicans to vote down a Trump nominee:

Lisa Fierstein, Puzder's wife from 1973 to 1987, appeared on Winfrey's show in March of 1990 in a segment about "High-Class Battered Women." On the show, Fierstein, in disguise as "Ann," describes alleged abuse by Puzder and its impact on her life.
"I wound up losing everything, everything," Fierstein told Winfrey. "I have nothing. He has a Porsche and a Mercedes-Benz. He has the home. He has everything. He was an attorney and he knew how to play the system." She also claimed that Puzder told her: "I will see you in the gutter. This will never be over, you will pay for this."
According to Politico, she filed a court petition in 1988 (which was dismissed) alleging that Puzder "assaulted and battered me by striking me violently about the face, chest, back, shoulders and neck, without provocation or cause," and left "bruises and contusions to the chest, back, shoulders and neck" as well as "two ruptured discs and two bulging discs,"
A couple months after filing the petition, Fierstein also sought a protective order against Puzder, alleging he "physically assaulted" her and left her with "permanent personal injuries."

It takes a nominee being accused  of beating his wife on Oprah.

The rest of his awfulness doesn't matter.
