1) An uninformed, pharisaical condemnation of an industry providing, w/regularity, life-saving, less invasive medical options at huge R&D cost:
2) The tweeter has a campaign against #Pharma, an imperfect industry, as all human endeavors are. She blames Pharma for poor nations, though it has provided millions of free doses. It escapes her that graft often frustrates the administration of those helps. We are blessed...
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: ✅
Cyber Ninjas Arizona: ❌

For @Newsweek, @DavidRozado, Jamin Halberstadt and I extend the analysis from our recent Social Science Computer Review paper.

tldr: the trends we observed with respect to media discourse have continued unabated since #Election2020.

newsweek.com/our-research-s…
Some readers assumed the patterns observed were a response to #Trump candidacy/ presidency. As orig. paper showed, they preceded Trump's arrival on the political scene. And as the extension shows, they have continued roughly unchanged since he was deposed: newsweek.com/our-research-s… Image
Many other important findings in the original paper, described here:

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

First one:

“‘What’s a coronavirus?’ Trump asked.”
January 2020:

“We need to bring a czar in, like Ron Klain was for Ebola,”

“As Fauci spoke, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro was incredulous.” 😐

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

“After the 20th we go to war” Rogers wrote, an apparent reference to launching the attack after the presidential inauguration
Copeland, Rogers also "sought support from an anti-government militia group" per @TheJusticeDept

Officials say Copeland also communicated w/a leader of a militia group after Rogers was arrested, who advised him to destroy evidence of the encrypted communications...

Inside @WNCathedral, @POTUS and @FLOTUS take their seats here for the funeral of John Warner III, the five-term US senator from #Virginia.
In his remarks about John Warner, @POTUS notes his service to the country from the age of 17 and he understood “democracy is a way of being” and he worked across the aisle, seeing political opponents not enemies.

"As we gather tonight our country is being destroyed before our very own eyes," says Donald Trump, returning to the political stage, in a speech to @NCGOP. Image
"Bad, bad things are happening to us," says Trump, not surprisingly, in breaking with the tradition of ex-US presidents putting themselves above politics once out of office.
There are exceptions, even in modern history. Jimmy Carter, in 2007, attacked the Bush administration but that was 26 years after the one-term president left office.

This article is merely the latest to underscore that the reviews of various #election2020 races shouldn't be viewed in isolation. Many are part of a broader effort to undermine the legitimacy of #election2020. apnews.com/article/donald…
1/Whether it's the well-run forensic audit conducted by @WAuditors of a state representative race in NH, the abomination being conducted in Maricopa County, AZ (also known as #AZAudit), or other questionable reviews, such as those being contemplated in Fulton County, GA or WI.
2/It's important that the public understand the differences between what triggered these various reviews. For example, NH's audit arose from an actual gap in vote tallies in a race for state representative. cnn.com/2021/05/25/pol…

One well covered irony of the TX elections legislation (SB7) is that supporters cite a need to improve election security when these bills, of course, stem from the Big Lie. Another irony is that SB7's proposed changes would probably make it harder to secure future TX elections.🧵
1/One reason #election2020 was secure was because many voters had more ways to vote and a longer period of time to do so than in previous elections.
2/When voters have more voting options, election officials often find themselves serving smaller groups of voters and ballots at once than in previous elections. I know this firsthand from my experiences as a former state and local election official.

Folks across Texas, as well as across the nation, should be breathing a collective sigh of relief, but it could very well be short-lived. In the interim, efforts to bolster the integrity of our democratic elections must continue. Below are 3 ideas. washingtonpost.com/politics/texas…
1/Congress needs to establish a commission to determine what factors, such as the lies about #election2020, led to the 1/6 Capitol riots. If Congress won't act in a bipartisan or nonpartisan manner, Pres. Biden should issue an executive order establishing such a commission.
2/The DOJ should ensure it has a robust strategy in place for combatting any efforts, incl. legislative, that undermine genuine, democratic elections. Even w/o pre-clearance, it has many tools to counter such efforts and other campaigns that could undermine voter confidence.

Removing @VerifiedVoting's Mark Lindeman and replacing him with Board Member Breton's preferred choice would be unwise for many reasons
1/Lindeman is as experienced as almost anyone with election audits. verifiedvoting.org/team/#mark Don't trust me? Ask the countless election officials he's worked previously with across the country.
2/Breton's choice for the town audit designee is a wolf in sheep's clothing. He's currently part of an Arizona "Audit" effort that's doing far more right now to subvert #election2020 than validate it. brennancenter.org/sites/default/…

While combating interference from malign actors is a whole-of-society endeavor, government is arguably the most important actor in protecting democracies from them, as the below actions demonstrate. Here are a few more. Thread 🧵
1/As @rickhasen correctly noted in a recent @nytimes op-ed, #election2020 and its aftermath are now leading to efforts by some to try and undermine the integrity of the vote count, itself. Here are a few things Biden should try and do in the next 100 days to counteract this push.
2/Advocate for the fast replacement of any voting system that does not produce a paper record of the vote. Paper trails can ensure that the votes were properly counted and provide more confidence in the voting system, which can be helpful in countering any voting machines lies.
