American Senator Proposes to Ban the Sale of Russian Vodka in US
New Hampshire's Senate minority leader is suggesting a ban on Russian vodka at state liquor stores as one possible response to reports of Russia's meddling in the U.S. election.
Sen. Jeff Woodburn, D-Whitefield, unveiled legislation Monday to create a bipartisan commission to evaluate and recommend potential actions in connection with Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
A draft of the bill would give the commission wide range in considering possible responses. Woodburn raises two ideas in the bill: the New Hampshire Retirement System divesting from any Russian-based assets, and a suspension or ban on the New Hampshire Liquor Commission buying Russian-made liquor for sale at its 79 retails stores, New Hampshire Union Leader reports.
"Do you send hard-earned dollars to someone who's trying to undermine your democracy? Your dollars should follow your ideals", he said adding; "Donald Trump is our legitimate President. I respect him for his position," Woodburn said. "But there's no question that there was meddling in our election. The question now is what is the appropriate response."
