🌎Donald Trump—🌪️Roger Stone—🔥Paul Manafort—🌬️Roy Cohn
There are so many connections between these four gentlemen, but the common thread between them all appears to be Roger Stone.

washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/…
🔪But Stone’s rules: “Attack, attack, attack—never defend” and “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.” This “advice” came via renowned attorney Roy Cohn, who represented Donald Trump late in Cohn’s life.

vanityfair.com/news/2017/06/d…
🌬️Cohn’s "original" 3-dimensional strategy via @vanityfair article: 1. Never settle, never surrender. 2. Counter-attack, counter-sue immediately. 3. No matter what happens, no matter how deeply into the muck you get, claim victory and never admit defeat.”

They’re Trying To Stop The Count — Again! gregpalast.com/theyre-trying-… #FloridaRecount #FloridaRecount2018 #Florida
My very first US investigative report was published by Salon in 2000 about the theft of the vote in #Florida. Fast-forward to 2018 and the photos are nearly identical — GOP bullies trying to stop the vote count. gregpalast.com/floridas-flawe…
This week in #Florida, my camera crew captured menacing crowds supporting the GOP chanting ‘Stop the count’—the exact phrase the GOP chanted in 2000. And in 2018, Democratic demonstrators are chanting ‘Count all the votes'—the exact same (failed) chant from 2000. #FloridaRecount

Imagine if NFL team was trailing 24-22 but in final seconds hits a 3 pt kick to win. Then AFTER game lawyers for losing team get a judge to order rules changed so that last second field goals are only 1 point

Well that’s how democrat lawyers plan to steal #Florida election 1/4
For example, #Florida law requires that the voter signatures on mail ballots match the signature of the voter.

But Dem lawyers are asking a judge to throw that law out & force Florida to count ballots with signatures that don’t match the voter signature on file. 2/4
#Florida law requires a manual recount of “undervotes” in close races & provides a clear standard for determining whether a voter intended to vote for a candidate.

Now Dem lawyers want a judge to order Florida to ignore this intent standard when reviewing “undervotes” 3/4

✅Check this out! #Maine’s race for 2nd Congressional District will be decided by ranked voting because no candidate has 50% of the vote yet.

🔥But incumbent Bruce Poliquin & the GOP are making similar claims to #Florida Governor Rick Scott: that the SOS “mishandled ballots.”
#Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap criticized Poliquin’s campaign, saying those comments could lead to voters losing confidence in the voting system.

Ranked voting results are expected mid-week & #Democrat Jared Golden @golden4congress could win.

sunjournal.com/dunlap-concern…
ℹ️This is explains the ranked voting system. #Maine is the first state to use it.

💥And an Election Day poll said that Jared Golden would get 93% of the independent candidates’ votes.

🗣️People were calling for the resignation of Brian Kemp before the Gubernatorial election that he was in against Stacey Abrams @staceyabrams, started. Kemp was #Georgia's Secretary of State (SOS) until last Thursday 11/8/18 when he resigned.

🛑But—

cnn.com/2018/11/09/opi…
👉Rick Scott is Governor of #Florida until January 9th—so he's Ken Detzner's supervisor until that time. He appointed Ketzner to the SOS post in January 2012.

⁉️With all the controversy surrounding the Florida elections, isn't this a bigger CONFLICT OF INTEREST than Kemp's?
🔥🔥Not only that!🔥🔥

⚖️Rick Scott had to be stopped by a court from doing this▶️between 3 judges' resignations at midnight on 1/8/19 and the next governor's swearing in ceremony at 12 noon on 1/9/19.👇

Folks: Few states count provisional ballots, early ballots, or overseas ballots quickly; usually they do not have to do so because the numbers don't require it... there is a big enough margin for these not to have any effect. In #Florida and #Georgia you have several issues. 1/
@ScottforFlorida has been governor for two terms/8 years. During this time he has underfunded election security and election processes, did not replace Ms. Snipes who he now berates. Why? So he could underfund the election machinery in that county and then blame her for problems?
For @ScottforFlorida to complain now when he is responsible for underfunding election staff, machines, etc is laughable at best, but really a tragedy of democracy. The idea that the second largest county in Florida, underfunded for this purpose, should now pull out miracles,

Many of the same people in media & commentary class who are always warning about “threats to our democracy” are excusing or deflecting attention from the blatant lawlessness in #Broward & #PalmBeach undermining the credibility of & public confidence in our elections 1/3
They make straw man argument that we must “Count Every Vote”

They say we are misrepresenting #Florida law,even though 2 separate judges today found violations

They say claim of past misconduct by #BrowardCounty is unfounded even though ignoring years of local media coverage 2/3
If a “Red County” did what #BrowardCounty & #PalmBeachCounty are doing, they would march in the streets & confront Republicans about it in restaurants

But because it’s happening in a “Blue County” they create increasingly novel & creative arguments to justify it. 3/3

🔥🔥There are a lot of reasons why Russian hackers might have tried to help Trump/Scott/DeSantis win the elections in #Florida:

▶️Trump never did anything to #ProtectOurVotes after the 2016 election hack
▶️#Florida is often a deciding factor in presidential elections
🔥Reasons why #Florida elections might have been hacked (cont'd)
▶️Florida has 29 electoral votes
▶️Right now it has a GOP trifecta, one of 26 states
▶️GOP majority when there is a Dem majority in the U.S.
▶️Trump needs as many allies as possible in DC
🔥Reasons why #Florida elections might have been hacked (cont'd)
▶️To continue to cause turmoil, divide Americans and disrupt democracy
▶️Trump lives in #Florida (David Koch also has a house there, many Russians invest in real estate there, alleged money laundering)

Long but IMPORTANT THREAT ON ELECTIONS IN #FLORIDA.

#BayCounty was hit by a Cat 4 Hurricane just 4 weeks ago,yet managed to count votes & submit timely results.

Yet over 41 hours after polls closed #Broward elections office is still counting votes?
#Sayfie

1/6
#Broward supervisor:
- says she doesn’t know how many ballots are left to be counted; &
- Isn’t reporting hourly or regularly,but rather releasing thousands of additional votes,often in the overnight hours,that are chipping away at GOP leads

2/6

#Sayfie
#Broward elections department has a history of violating the law:

A court found they improperly handled votes by mail:

Dear Florida,

If you voted for Trump Republicans @ScottforFlorida, @RonDeSantis and @RepGusBilirakis, no thanks to you for turning #Florida into the new Georgia. By putting party before country. you've killed off our tourist industry with this new red tide.

🌎After years of deleterious moves to outright harm the environment, why did Rick Scott take action and on July 9th and declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of blue-green algae blooms? 3 Reasons. Money, politics & urgency/necessity.

tampabay.com/news/business/…
👉These 7 counties were affected by the blue-green algae blooms: Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Okeechobee.
⁉️And then on August 13, 2018, why did Rick Scott declare a STATE OF EMERGENCY because of “red tide” in the following counties: Charlotte, Collier, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota? (Lucky Lee County! Red + Green = Grey—Brown)

THREAD: Here’s every race in 2018 #Midterms where you can vote for weed legalization or against some old asshole blocking legalization. And oh yeah, help save democracy.
In #Michigan, Proposal 18-1 would legalize cannabis including flowers, concentrates and edibles. Plus you can grow 12 plants at home! freep.com/story/opinion/…
In #Missouri, three competing legalization measures are on the ballot. Measure 2 is backed by local grassroots activists. The other two are pretty sketchy. My colleagues at @Leafly break it down in detail. leafly.com/news/politics/…

THREAD: I’ve spent the last few weeks chatting with people about the upcoming #midterm elections. I’d like to share some of what I’ve heard and why this gives me so much hope.🇺🇸
I met these young women while walking my pups in my beachside community. For privacy reasons, I won’t share their real names (let’s call them “Julie” and “Amy”), but they graciously allowed me to share their stories.
One the best parts of walking my “boys” (Bowen and Bynum) is that I get to meet lots of strangers. I mean, who can resist these two?😍

Seriously, the pups break the ice, and as a consequence, I’ve met lots of interesting people.

💥Rick Scott turned down federal money in #Florida for Medicaid!

🔥🤥His Attorney General Pam Bondi is suing the federal government to DISMANTLE the ACA, specifically to remove protections for pre-existing conditions!

‼️You think he didn’t approve that?

floridapolitics.com/archives/27943…
🔥Rick Scott doesn’t support medical coverage for people who are less fortunate.

‼️🤥Listen to the awkward wording of that stupid ad.

💥Better yet, watch the #Democratic rebuttal.👇

🔥He also doesn’t want those “less fortunate people (99.9% of the remainder of the world) on his private beaches either!

You need to ask yourself, how did he get that money? He was CEO of a company that defrauded Medicare!

Take your private plane out of FL!

🔥🔥If you're a Republican in #Florida and still thinking of voting for Rick Scott (Re-elect Bill Nelson @NelsonForSenate), please read this first.

📄I am going to post excerpts from a report prepared by American Bridge 21st Century, a progressive #Democratic American Super PAC.
🔥This report is entitled "Florida Man Buys State/Koch Impacts in the Sunshine State and although written by a Super PAC, it is backed up with countless news articles from reputable news outlets.

ℹ️It only includes years 2010-2016.
▶️This thread will try to summarize the pages from the report (which I'll post) which refer to Rick Scott and how the Koch Network helped him and hurt #Floridians.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.

DeSantis wants proposed 16,000 acre reservoir instead of 60,000 acres approved by #Florida voters. 16K is too small! To hold this volume of water, it would have to be 30-40 feet deep. That's too deep, filtering plants wouldn't grow. It'll be 16K acres of algae! More problems.
I'm a real scientist. I've been in meetings with both candidates. DeSantis came in "telling us" what he'll do. @AndrewGillum on the other hand "talked to us" and listened. Between these two choices, I feel that Gillum is the better candidate to solve this problem.
The #1 issue is appointing SCIENTISTS to state's science boards, such as FWC board and the water management districts. Currently, instead of scientists, those positions are held by developers and lawyers. DeSantis wants more of this. Gillum wants #science. That's the solution!
