All the dumb culture war stuff from Ron DeSantis and Florida Republicans is meant to distract you from their plan to give $624 million of our tax dollars to a secret list of the most profitable corporations in the state, after already giving $543 million in corporate giveaways.

If you knew that in 2024 Republican state election officials will simply refuse to certify a Democratic candidate the winner, would you still think "reforming" the Electoral Count Act to rubber stamp state results was a good idea? Now you see why Big Lie Republicans support it.
Electoral Count Act reform is picking up GOP support: - Rep. Jim Banks says the 1887 law is "muddled, flawed" and Congress "must clarify" it. - A bipartisan Senate group working on it has grown to ~12 members, including Portman & Ernst. w/ @SophiaCai99 axios.com/electoral-reform-b…

Today, Ron DeSantis introduced an illegal redistricting map meant to suppress the rights of voters across the state. We cannot let this continue. I’m hopeful that with @marceelias on our side, the courts will reject DeSantis’ attempt.

This evidence, together with Trump saying that he might fire acting AG Rosen, has always struck me as strong evidence of a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 610, which criminalizes attempts to coerce federal employees into engaging in political activity. law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/…
Donoghue’s notes say this exactly. “…just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and ‘Republican Lawmakers’…”

Alternative presentation: Donald Trump exit from the White House led almost immediately to a 14-point rise in Republican fortunes.
Gallup: Party preferences flipped from a 9-point Democrat advantage (highest since 2012) to a 5-point GOP advantage (highest since 1995) during 2021 as Joe Biden dragged his entire party down and Youngkin's win in VA brought fresh energy to the Republican side.

#WTF, #WhiteSupremacy in the house, and remember, folks voted him in
Glenn Youngkin just removed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion section of the Virginia Governor’s website. Sickening.

Too many families right now are at home worrying how to keep up with rising costs and higher bills. Meanwhile, Harrisburg Republicans are spending their time on conspiracy theories. You deserve better, and that's why I'm in this fight.

The media either turns everything about President Biden into a negative or they show certain polls with low numbers for him when all the rest are higher just to try spinning a negative controversial narrative for no reason other than clickbait. It’s pathetic and shameful.

I don’t know what’s going to finally break the fever of the infected anti-democratic Republicans, but I do think it will include prosecuting and convicting the man who incited the deadly insurrection, tried to steal the election, and continues to lie that he won the election.

How can he care about the rest of the country when he doesn’t even care about his own constituents. He’s building a war chest. He may be planning to run for POTUS in 2024. That makes a lot of sense. What do you think? nitter.fdn.fr/milesjreed/statu… 01

Or keeping #Democracy
Passing voting rights legislation isn’t about politics.   It is about protecting and securing the future of our democracy.
