Why are you so concerned about what books are read in NoVa high schools? Hypocrite.
I don’t care what books are read anywhere. I care that our national public school teachers unions have a goal of pushing Marxist theory nationwide. Individual examples cited are just to dispose of your ridiculous head in the sand “not happening anywhere” claims.

Don't let Howie change the discussion point.

You couldn't define "Marxist theory" correctly and provide accurate and relevant support for your half-ass thesis if you were given 30 days to do it and your life depended on it.

Georgia Republicans purge Black Democrats from county election boards

Protesters filled the meeting room of the Spalding County Board of Elections in October, upset that the board had disallowed early voting on Sundays for the Nov. 2 municipal election. A year ago, Sunday voting had been instrumental in boosting turnout of Black voters.

But this was an entirely different five-member board than had overseen the last election. The Democratic majority of three Black women was gone. So was the Black elections supervisor. Now a faction of three white Republicans controlled the board – thanks to a bill passed by the Republican-led Georgia legislature earlier this year. The Spalding board’s new chairman has endorsed former president Donald Trump’s false stolen-election claims on social media.

The panel in Spalding, a rural patch south of Atlanta, is one of six county boards that Republicans have quietly reorganized in recent months through similar county-specific state legislation. The changes expanded the party’s power over choosing members of local election boards ahead of the crucial midterm Congressional elections in November 2022.

The unusual rash of restructurings follows the state's passage of Senate Bill 202, which restricted ballot access statewide and allowed the Republican-controlled State Election Board to assume control of county boards it deems underperforming. The board immediately launched a performance review of the Democratic-leaning Fulton County board, which oversees part of Atlanta.

The Georgia restructurings are part of a national Republican effort to expand control over election administration in the wake of Trump’s false voter-fraud claims. Republican-led states such as Florida, Texas and Arizona have enacted new curbs on voter access this year. Backers of Trump’s false stolen-election claims are running campaigns for secretary of state - the top election official - in battleground states. And some Republicans in Wisconsin are seeking to eliminate the state’s bipartisan election commission and threatening its members with prosecution.

Spoof will be by to tell us there's nothing to see here. It's just about "making it easier to vote" and/or "limited resources."

Fucking right wing assholes.

Wait a second…I thought when the courts ruled, it proved your case valid or not? At least that was the lefty interpretation of Trump election lawsuits and legal challenges when they were either ruled against or thrown out.

If there’s a legal case that the Georgia legislature has overstepped their authority, sue for justice or STFU!!!

Surprise. There’s No Voter Fraud. Again.

Earlier this week The Associated Press released an impressively thorough report examining every potential case of voter fraud in six decisive battleground states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — where Donald Trump and his allies challenged the result in 2020. Voters in these six states cast a combined 25.5 million votes for president last year, and chose Joe Biden over Mr. Trump by 311,257 votes. The total number of possible cases of fraud the A.P. found? Fewer than 475, or 0.15 percent of Mr. Biden’s margin of victory in those states.

Many of those cases the A.P. identified turned out not to be fraud at all. Some involved a poll worker’s error or a voter’s innocent confusion, such as the Trump supporter in Wisconsin who mistakenly thought he could vote while on parole. (“The guy upstairs knows what I did,” the man said after a court appearance. “I didn’t have any intention to commit election fraud.”)

In the few instances of clear fraud — for example, a Pennsylvania man who cast two ballots, one for himself and, later in disguise, one for his son — local authorities were quick to act. In Arizona, officials investigated 198 cases of potential fraud, most involving double-voting. They invalidated virtually all of the second votes and have so far charged nine people with voting fraud crimes.

That’s the thing about voter fraud: Not only is it rare, it’s generally easy to catch, especially if it happens on a larger scale. In 2019, North Carolina officials ordered a do-over of a congressional election after the winning candidate’s campaign was found to have financed an illegal voter-turnout effort. That candidate was a Republican, as were two of three residents of the Villages, a Florida retirement community, who were arrested and charged with double voting in the 2020 election earlier this month. (The third had no party affiliation.)

HA!!! An Opinion hatchet job in the NY Times of all places says no fraud.

We're all good!

Here’s a good idea. Let’s get as many people as possible that think they might have COVID together in the same place. What could go wrong?
What was Desantis thinking?

He was laying low on the last election until his Trump-Russia collusion scheme blew over.

Now he’s back in business!

When you have the full force of the MSM selling people on the notion that actually having to show up and vote in person is "VOTER SUPPRESSION!!!" along with things like this, what do you think is going to happen?

But hey, we're told here that pointing out the heavy bias of the MSM is whining and that advertising/propaganda actually doesn't work, despite being a multi-billion dollar industry. Go figure

Can anyone follow this logic?

State legislatures, that have constitutional authority to control their state’s elections as laid out in the US Constitution, can’t be trusted b/c they have used their constitutional authority to clean up malfeasance of local elections officials.

So the Voting Rights Act must be passed to unconstitutionally federalized elections and take power away from state legislatures given to them by the US Constitution.

Logic.

Yes, when the states act unconstitutionally it is very much the Feds responsibility to clean it up.
