That moment as a poll watcher when the polls close and you're locked in with democracy

#bospoli #mapoli
I live two blocks from W1P1's polls and have been coming here every election to get a photo of the count after the polls close because I am a sick freak

I've worked w/100+ sexual assault survivors in the past 17 years, mostly in asylum cases. I've seen what both not being able to tell anyone & not being believed when they do does to ppl--& the work it takes to heal--& I've just about lost my mind in the past 48 hrs. Wtf #bospoli? Summary of allegations against Sufolk DA candidate Ricardo A
Am I the asshole here for actually believing every word of this? Honestly it's days like these that I'm just as happy that I don't depend on state or local courts/electeds/politics for my livelihood. What a sorry fiasco this all is
So now we'll either have a #SuffolkDA who many believe on the word of a survivor is an unrepentant rapist or a DA who others now believe on the word of the accused leaked *records of that assault involving a minor* for political advantage. Great work everyone

I believe her, and it matters. She matters. That's it, and that's all.

The responses (and absence of responses) to this tomorrow will define #bospoli + #mapoli for years to come

@kennycooks This isn't about teams or sides or supporting any candidate over another. I fundamentally don't even support the role of DA as it currently stands in our system, so I honestly hardly care which of the two candidates with nearly identical policies wins. But I do care about this.
I honestly thought it was bizarre enough that I was being asked to get behind a candidate who had never entered an appearance as counsel in the court all of his most serious charging decisions as DA would be heard in, but it seems we're way past that now
