2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%
Easy Democratic pick-up of a safe new African American seat.… ImageImageImage

The wonderful #PA01 #townhall held by @ashley_ehasz was a great success tonight.

But present outside was #CardboardFitz, a prop from past @FridaysWithFitz events who provided a history of #GOP #MAGAextremist Brian Fitzpatrick's worst votes!

📷 by Steve C.
Thx, Steve!
An oldie but a goodie.

Back in 2017, #PA01 #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick voted YES on the classic #Trump, Paul Ryan and #McConnell's #GOPTaxScam, which forked benefits over to the ultra rich and corporations.
#PA01 Rep. Fitzpatrick may pretend to be #green, but whenever given the choice, he picks his donors (big banks, #fossilfuel corporations) over the #environment.

De-regulating pipelines, opening the #arctic to drilling, etc. He votes with the money, not with the environment.

Hi all!
It's a 10 minute warning on the start of #Democrat Congressional candidate in #PA01, @ashley_ehasz's #townhall on #ReproductiveFreedom and the role of Congress.

You can watch here:

We'll be live tweeting the whole thing!
If you attended the @ashley_ehasz #PA01 #townhall in person, you'd have seen this (#Antichoice #GOP extremist Brian Fitzpatrick) cardboard guy out front.

That's as close as any version of Fitz would get to a town hall. He sprints away from unscripted constituent contact!
In case you want a run down of the legislative goods on #GOP #Antichoice extremist Brian Fitzpatrick of #PA01, here's the rundown...

The TL;DR is that Brian Fitzpatrick has ALWAYS voted AGAINST #AbortionRights.

He's no moderate, don't drink the Kool-aid on that!

#PA01 folks, we simply MUST have a conversation...

1⃣ about #GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick,
2⃣his vote against the #DomesticTerrorism bill that he previously co-sponsored,
3⃣and his statement on this vote.

I did a little digging this weekend, and what I found is WILD.
First, a little background info about #DomesticTerrorism.

There is a basic legal definition on what that term means. It's already enshrined into law, in 18 U.S. Code § 2331.

You can read it below, or at this link⤵️…
So, we know that #PA01's #GOp Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick co-sponsored the #DomesticTerrorism bill, and then did a complete reversal and voted NO on it.

He knew this behavior was SUPER-SKETCHY, so our #SilentBrian did something uncharacteristic - he issued a statement.

Forged signatures on an election petition were intended to benefit MAGA Republican Dasha Pruett in the #PA01 primary. The local @BucksGOP & @BucksDA have remained mum. My interview w/ @cmychalejko, Editor In Chief at @BucksCoBeacon. #ElectionIntegrity 1/
The story has yet to be picked up by the 2 big daily news outlets, @Intelligencer & @CourierTimes, which have much broader circulation than @BucksCoBeacon & @levittownnow, which covered it. PA needs these larger outlets to report on this to create momentum 4 an investigation. 2/

NEW INFO: Five Bucks County Republicans who circulated former candidate Dasha Pruett’s nominating petitions now tell @levittownnow they were not behind the forged signatures on her election documents.…

#PA01 #LTownVotes
Four of the five circulators have signed affidavits and some plan to go to law enforcement with their concerns. This follows shoe-leather reporting on the forged signatures last week.
Circulators who signed affidavits and provided statements said signatures they did not collect appeared on forms after they turned them over to Pruett's campaign. The campaign then submitted the petitions to the state.

Given the forged signatures in favor of Republican Dasha Pruett in #PA01 & the fraudulently switched voter registrations in Florida, this surge in switched voter registrations in PA must be investigated immediately. @harrisonjaime: Are u investigating?! Pls make a stmt! 1/

Hi folks! Welcome to a bare-bones #Pennsylvania #MoCTrack for the week ending 10/31/21.

Since it is so close to #ElectionDay2021 (which should be your focus), I’m just going to run down the votes and quotes, with basic links.
#MoCTrack 1/20
Full Report-
The House passed a bill to fund shelters and programs to address #DomesticViolence.

Over 95% of #GOP MoCs voted No on this. #Shame.

8 of 9 #Pennsylvania GOP MoCs were NO votes, only #PA01's @RepBrianFitz voted YES.
#MoCTrack 2/20…
In case you were wondering why all those #GOP House members voted NO a #DomesticViolence prevention bill? This portion from the speech of Rep. Bob Good of Virginia gives you an idea.

The bill passed, thankfully.

OK, #Levittown-ers in #BucksCounty #PA01:

this is the thread you’ve been waiting for— your #OriginStory
Further down, Steven Dennis weaves in Levitt's "racial segregation for a buck" ethos
#PA01's @RepBrianFitz grew up in Levittown, PA. This was how he saw it, looking back, in his 2016 run for this (predominantly) #BucksCounty seat.
"Levittown values are blue-collar values"…

Reminds me of th time a @RepBrianFitz-stan #BucksCounty GOP committee person posted @ring video footage instantly accessed from (ex-FBI!) Fitzpatrick's #PA01 official district office to mock a local visiting Indivisible crew- it was never explained how he gained security access🧐
Again, this was *not* the @BrianFitzUSA campaign office in #BucksCounty. It was at the official federal #PA01 district office of Rep Fitzpatrick
One of the 3 GOP people involved in this @ring security incident at @RepBrianFitz's office is now working for the @marcorubio campaign
"For starters, the Ring system has been repeatedly criticized for its cyber security flaws"

The armed militia/paramilitary wing of the #Reopen anti-mask movement announced it will be in Doylestown #BucksCounty #PA01 8/25 noon until @CBSDSchools meeting to discuss amending the health & safety plan based on @buckshealthdept David Damsker's new #COVID19 guidelines. 1/5
The armed militia/paramilitary group is trying to brand this act of intimidation in #BucksCounty #PA01 as "family fun" & a "celebration." According to the flyer the event is co-hosted with Parents of @CBSDSchools, which one could assume are from the #reopen, anti-mask bunch. 2/5
This "family fun" armed militia/paramilitary group also offers to its shock troops, I mean members, discounts for Ballistic helmets "ideal" for law enforcement, military and private security contractors. Why would they need these? #BucksCounty #PA01 #extremism 3/5

BIG NEWS: We're excited to announce that with the release of Pennsylvania, Daily Kos Elections now has the 2020 presidential results complete for all 435 congressional districts in America!…
With PA complete, we now know that Biden carried 224 congressional districts while Donald Trump prevailed in 211. You can find the results for each seat here…
Seven Democrats hold seats that Trump won while nine Republicans represents districts that went for Biden. PA is the one state home to both a “Biden-Republican” and a “Trump-Democrat." #PA01 #PA08

Based on a variety of number-crunching sources, esp. @DKElections, it looks like there were at most 16 districts out of 435 that split their tickets between president/House in '20 - likely an all-time low.

For perspective, there were 83 such districts in '08 and 35 in '16.
Biden/R districts (9):

#CA21 Valadao
#CA25 Garcia
#CA39 Kim
#CA48 Steel
#FL27 Salazar
#NE02 Bacon
#NY24 Katko
#PA01 Fitzpatrick
#TX24 Van Duyne

Trump/D districts (7/8?):

#IL17 Bustos
#IA03 Axne
#ME02 Golden
#MI08 Slotkin
#NJ03 Kim
#NY22 Brindisi (?)
#PA08 Cartwright
#WI03 Kind
Correction to first tweet: at most 17, if Brindisi (D) prevails in #NY22. Would still be less than half of the 35 in 2016.

Walk down 2019 memory lane in #PA01. This was back when @RepBrianFitz was supporting #ProudBoys leader EnriqueTarrio's plea to crackdown on antifa as a "domestic terrorist organization": Tarrio had failed online petition; Fitzpatrick SENT A LETTER ADDRESSED TO ROGUE AG BILL BARR
This👇🏾 letter that #FakeModerate #PA01 @RepBrianFitz sent to BillBarr on July 17, 2019 (just weeks before #ProudBoys leader Enrique Tarrio's antifa petition failed), keeping hope alive for ProudBoys everywhere to live &fight another day!
At the time #PA01's @RepBrianFitz *proudly* released his antifa attack letter to AG Barr, far right hack @SenTedCruz was also making his attack via the Senate through hopeless legislative bill. Here, Cruz doing promo w #ProudBoys Tarrio
