MID-TERM ELECTIONS

I'm very glad to read that. It's honest and it's fair, completely unlike Kemp's suckiness.

Yeah, it was the right ruling.

I've seen several people (of both parties) interviewed who were shocked to learn their ballots had been rejected because an election worker deemed there was a 'mismatch'.  

They weren't contacted and didn't even know their votes hadn't been counted until they watched the news and learned how to check.  I bet there are a lot of people who will never know to check and won't be counted.  :(

I would like to see all states operate under a consistent verification process, a mandate to contact voters proactively if there's a mismatch between their registration and ballot data/signature, and a reasonable means by which voters can verify and be counted quickly.  

When votes are verified after being subjectively discounted, it's not a case of  "votes suddenly or suspiciously being found", of course.  It's a case of election workers doing due diligence instead of tossing out legal votes according to a subjective criteria determined by Secretaries of State (some of whom, like Kemp, control the election processes when they're competing in the election themselves, which should not be permitted).

New Jersey

Democrats flipped their 37th House of Representatives seat today, bringing their net gain to 34 with 8 races still pending.

Democrat Andy Kim had prematurely declared victory the day after the election when ballot counting gave him a 2,600-vote edge over Republican 2-term incumbent Tom MacArthur. 

But, MacArthur rightfully refused to concede, hopeful that thousands of uncounted votes could tip the 3rd District results in his favor.  

However, as the vote counting progressed, Kim's lead continued to grow and the race was called in his favor today.

MacArthur had aligned himself with Trump on immigration and healthcare.  He was also the only congressperson from New Jersey to support Trump's tax cuts (the deduction caps negatively impact a lot of New Jersey residents).

Kim's win gives Democrats in New Jersey 11 out of the 12 seats in the House of Representatives along with both U.S. Senate seats.

Damn straight. Count 'em all.

Sometimes when I think about all the political bullshit I wonder why asking for fairness is asking for too much. I think about gerrymandering a lot and it really fuckin' annoys me. I want fairness & one rule for all damnit.

If there are no votes, they will create them, "find" them and count them. American democracy at work

Nah, I don't think the republicans are doing that, they find other ways to cheat.

Yeah they do stuff like making sure all the traffic lights stay red and the buses have no gas and there are no pencils in the ballot booths and dead people stay dead.

The trump appointed judge has ruled in favor of CNN/Jim Acosta. "I will order defendants immediately restore Mr. Acosta's hard pass".

The judge rejected trump's claim that he gets the last word on press passes.

The judge is wrong about this and I have no doubt it will be proven.

Georgia Governor:
Today, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams acknowledged that she does not have the vote count to beat Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. Abrams said she's not conceding because she believes Kemp engaged in active voter suppression.  In any case, Kemp is the new governor of Georgia.

Utah Senator:
Also today, incumbent Republican senatorial candidate Mia Love pulled ahead of her Democratic challenger Ben McAdams in Utah by 400 votes.  Not all votes have been counted, so no winner has been called yet, but it's the first time Love has been in the lead.

President Trump called Love a loser for not embracing him shortly after election day.  However, with mail-in votes being popular in many states, declaring victories and defeats on election day is premature.

Thanks for the update Duchess. That's good to hear.  The judge definitely made the rational (and constitutional) ruling.

Yup

Trump should take it to the Supreme Court and whilst this is going through those motions he should have a publicised Jim Acosta hard pass burning on the White House lawn and then immediately after inform the public that he will no longer have White House briefs at the White House and will instead send daily briefs via email to the different media outlets.

It is NOT a right!

I kinda feel bad for people that just had their state taken by the blue meanies. My state lost the legislature but kept the Governor at least he can veto lots of spending and new taxes. Some others not so lucky so all i can say is break out the wallets and bank accounts because they're coming for you. Imagine a state with nothing but blue meanies pulling the strings. It's gotta be cringe-worthy. These things bounce back and forth all the time so good luck.
