Alright, I promised a thread, didn’t I?

The #Midterms2022 didn’t go as we expected because they had to cheat us out of a Red Wave and I can prove it.

PS: @elonmusk, if your algorithm bands me during this, I’ll never forgive you.
Let’s start with Michigan. Voters came out in sweeping numbers. So much so that they felt threatened enough to ballot dump more than once in the race between Tom Barrett and Elissa Slotkin

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

There are many folks who may be inclined to dismiss former President Trump's first rally of 2022 tonight in Arizona, but below are a number of reasons (from an election integrity perspective) why folks should be paying attention to it rather than ignoring it. 🧵
1/Today Steve Bannon declared on his podcast that the reason for this rally is to pressure the state legislature to decertify President Biden’s electors. Then, he insisted that PA, WI and GA would file suit, making Biden an “illegitimate president” going into the midterms.
2/To be clear, there is no legal process for carrying out such a plot, but that's perhaps of little comfort to many when considering what has already transpired in response to the lies about #election2020.

This is a really informative piece that make several important points. 🧵
1/ The #election2020 results nationally, in Arizona, and in Pima County were legitimate. It shouldn’t bear repeating, but it does.
2/Voter fraud is rare. As a former state and local election administrator, who now studies these issues as an #ELECTIONINTEGRITY fellow for @gmfus’s @SecureDemocracy, these findings in Pima County are much more the rule than the exception.

1) An uninformed, pharisaical condemnation of an industry providing, w/regularity, life-saving, less invasive medical options at huge R&D cost:

3) ...in our nation to enjoy market freedoms in which to exercise and profit from our industry and invention. We elect Gov't to hold business accountable and citizens who can organize and sue both. I won't broadbrush a grim picture of an industry that, though imperfectly,...

It was a pleasure speaking with @kevinrkosar about the Windham, New Hampshire audit, which is prescient timing considering the release of the Arizona "audit" findings. For a side-by-side report comparing the two and their adherence to best practices, see the thread below.
1/Best practice: Have the procedures for the post-election published and finalized before beginning the audit.
Windham, NH: ✅
Cyber Ninjas Arizona: ❌
2/Best practice: ensure chain of custody procedures for election materials throughout the post-election audit process.
Windham, NH: ✅

The Americans with Disabilities Act (#ADA) was signed into law 31 years ago today by President George H.W. Bush.

The law was meant to improve access to everyday life, work and our democracy, but voters with disabilities are still fighting to remove barriers to voting. #ADA31
Arizona enacted a law this year that removes voters from the state's permanent early voting list (PEVL) more frequently & requires more steps to obtain a mail ballot. This law creates deliberate barriers for disabled voters in the state. #AZLeg #ADA31

campaignlegal.org/update/arizona…
Florida & Georgia have passed laws restricting access to drop boxes and the ability to receive and submit mail-in ballots.

GA #DisabilityRights advocate Gaylon Tootle explains how the law creates barriers for voters like him:

Mute now if uninterested in a few gem quotes from #IALONECANFIXIT by @CarolLeonnig @PhilipRucker

2 #California men charged w/conspiring to destroy the @TheDemocrats party HQ in #Sacramento after #Election2020

45yo Ian Rogers & 37yo Jarrod Copeland "planned to use incendiary devices to attack their targets & hoped their attacks would prompt a movement" per @TheJusticeDept
Copeland, Rogers "used multiple messaging applications & discussed the attacks on numerous occasions" per @TheJusticeDept
