1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

From first-time hopefuls to seasoned veterans, African American women are lining up to disrupt the mostly white, mostly #Republican old boys’ club in #Alabama's political offices. ✊🏾✊🏿 We spoke to 18 candidates that are leading the charge: glmr.co/Mvi0IOy

“My hope for women in 2018 is that we will realize our political power. I hope women will run without fear, run zealously, and advocate for our constituents.” Ashley Smith, running for District Judge in Lowndes County #Alabama

Thread 1/5 On Friday a judge ruled that the destruction of ballots in @Tim_Canova race was illegal. The judge said that #BrendaSnipes the #BrowardCounty Supervisor of Elections' defenses were “without substance in fact or law." hollerbackfilm.com/blog/canovawin…
2/5 @MarcACaputo @politico is reporting that @FLGovScott says he will have #BrendaSnipes the #BrowardCounty Supervisor of Elections' office monitored. politico.com/states/florida…
3/5 The winning case is built around multiple public records requests that I did & one that @Tim_Canova and I filed together. I wanted to examine #ballots in his race due to statistical irregularities a #data team I led found in the #election results hollerbackfilm.com/blog/wass-can

Part 3. In January of 2000, Koch Industries Inc. agreed to pay $35 million in penalties for leaking 3 million gallons of oil into lakes and streams in six states. In total there were 300 spills across the nation in #Kansas, #Texas,# Oklahoma, #Louisiana, #Missouri and #Alabama.
It was the highest civil fine levied against one company under the Clean Water Act.
The spills killed thousands of fish and birds.

1/x Folks, a few thoughts on the extraordinary turnout among black voters in last night's #ALSEN special election and about how much greater it could have been.
2/x My client, Scott Douglas, wrote a brilliant op-ed about the problems with AL's discriminatory voter ID law in the NY Times yesterday: nytimes.com/2017/12/11/opi…
3/x Here are the numbers on the photo ID law:118,000 registered Alabama voters do not have a photo ID they can use to vote; Black and Latino voters are about twice as likely as white voters to not have ID.

Last night's #ALSEN election was decided by under 21,000 votes

Bon on débute le #livetweet de l'élection sénatoriale partielle d'#Alabama avec 1 rappel usuel pour mes followers: si les sondages sortie des urnes (#exitpolls)étaient 1 outil prédictif, Gore et Kerry auraient été présidents US.Bref,pour inconditionnels.edition.cnn.com/2017/12/12/pol…
2)On peut d'ailleurs s'étonner que @CNN renouvelle l'expérience"#exitpolls" sur cette sénatoriale partielle d'#Alabama alors que certains médias ne cessent de les remettre en cause...politico.com/story/2017/12/…
3) Plutôt que de gloser sur les exitpolls, rappelons les"intangibles" de l'élection comme on dit aux #EtatsUnis. L'#Alabama n'a pas élu 1 sénateur démocrate depuis 1992(en fait depuis 1990, car en 1992 c'était Shelby l'autre sénateur actuel, passé républicain en 1994 qui fut élu)

The child molester running for the U.S. Senate isn't the only weird thing going on in Alabama politics right now. Let's talk about some of that...

<thread>
Last Thursday, a lawsuit was filed in an Alabama circuit court on behalf of 3 voters (a Republican, a Democrat, & an Independent). They asked the court to order election officials to preserve electronic ballot images from the upcoming #ALSen race.

/1/
Alabama uses paper ballots...BUT the paper ballot is not actually what's counted.

Here's how it works: The paper ballot is scanned. A digital image is created. Then, that digital image is used to count your vote.

Le président #Trump réaffirme à 3 jours du scrutin son soutien massif à #Moore le candidat républicain pour la sénatoriale d'#Alabama, accusé de multiples inconduites sexuelles...et il est probable qu'il l'emportera malgré la vague nationale du #metoo...#thread RT
2) Avec le soutien de #Trump et malgré son passé douteux, #Moore devrait l'emporter d'abord par l'arithmétique électorale d'#Alabama. Pas 1 démocrate n'y a été élu sénateur depuis 1990 et l'#Alabama n'a pas voté pour un président démocrate depuis 1976 (Carter)...
3) Lors des précédents scrutins pour ce siège de sénateur d'#Alabama, #Sessions, aujourd'hui ministre de la Justice de #Trump, battit le démocrate de 7 pts(1996), puis de 19 pts (2002),26.8 pts(2008) et en 2014 fut finalement réélu sans opposition avec 97,3% des voix(si, si)...

As @SenateGOP move forward with their #GOPTaxScam I decided to see how they would personally benefit from their plan.

39 Republicans are worth over a MILLION dollars!

4 are worth over 50 MILLION!

This tax plan benefits them personally.

Drill down for every GOP Senator

#DougJones supporters: Turning out voters of color in #Alabama is key, so it’s important to give to the local orgs that are working on that. A thread.
The last day to register to vote in #Alabama is 11/27; the special election is 12/12. Make this ask at your Thanksgiving table! If people who see this thread in their feed each gave $10, efforts would be funded.

2) Et le @nytimes a suspendu immédiatement Thrush le temps d'1 enquête interne. La grande lessive post- #Weinstein continue. Vous pouvez parier sur 1 tweet de #Trump. Il entretien avec Thrush et Haberman, sa partenaire de plume au Times, 1 lien fascination-répulsion.
