You only see these long lines in Blacklanta, where state law eliminated most dropboxes.

The official wait times in white rural counties and suburbs was 10 minutes or at most half an hour.

The people we spoke to in #Atlanta told us that the lines have tripled, not because of higher voting but because it was a practical impossibility under the new law to mail in your ballot. #SB202…
From the 2020/2021 elections to November 2022, mail-in ballots in #Georgia plummeted by over 1 million, a breathtaking 81% loss of ballots — concentrated in Black-majority urban counties.…

#RaphaelWarnock’s in real trouble. Don’t be fooled by the long lines of Black voters. Here’s the real story...… #Georgia #RunoffGA #gapol
Two years ago #RaphaelWarnock won his Senate #Runoff only because he got three-quarters of a million mail-in votes — winning the mail-in vote by more than 2-to-1…
So, within weeks of his victory, the Republicans in the Georgia legislature changed the law making it all but illegal to vote by mail in a runoff election.…

Olivia Pearson was the first African-American to serve as Commissioner of Douglas, GA. When #BrianKemp became #Georgia’s Sec of State, he falsely charged her with vote tampering, a felony crime which meant she was threatened with 5-years in prison.…
Olivia Pearson was acquitted, of course, but Black turn-out dropped as voters were not unreasonably fearful of the new Jim Crow laws. Meanwhile the episode earned #BrianKemp the designation by the NYTimes as the “pioneer of present day #VoterSuppression.”…
"The young lady that I was with... she told me, Miss Olivia, I don't even want to vote after all of this. I don't want to vote anymore. I don't want to do it. And I had to beg her and explain to her that that's what they're doing it for." – Olivia Pearson…

If you’ve seen Vigilante, I hope you agree with @BlackVotersMatter founder @MsLaToshaBrown's demand: “Everyone must see this film.”

And right now, with #Georgia's Dec 6 #runoff looming, #VotingRights activists are asking for our help to set up screenings.…
Remember George Rhynes, the African-American journalist who told the story of the #Quitman10—school board members, every one Black, charged with felonies by Brian Kemp.

George wants to hold a screening and GOTV event right there in Quitman. Will you help?…
Olivia Pearson, the Douglas City Commissioner falsely charged with a felony voting crime by Brian Kemp, wants to show Vigilante on December 3 — right there in Douglas — to encourage the vote and prepare voters to be challenged. Will you help?… #gapol

Despite a judge adding one Saturday to #EarlyVoting for the #GeorgiaRunoff, that’s still only 7 days, and in some counties only 5 days.

Not mentioned in the press: how #SB202 shutters all #dropboxes except on Early Voting days, during Early Voting hours.…
Dropbox votes fall 2:1 for Democrats. So, cutting Early Voting all but eliminates the dropbox ballots that won the runoff for Warnock in 2021.… #Georgia #Runoff #RunoffGA
More: Mail-in and dropbox voting in #Georgia plunged by over 80% because of these new rules. While the Judge will allow an extra Saturday of voting (because that’s when HE votes), Fulton County (Atlanta) could not qualify because the deadline for application is too soon. #gapol

Thanks to Gov. Kemp's new Jim Crow law, #SB202, #Warnock’s mail-in vote this year fell off a cliff to 164,282—a drop of 73%. While the Republican absentee vote also fell, the drop resulting from the new law mainly punished Warnock… #Georgia #Runoff #gapol
Among the provisions of #SB202 that cut into the mail-in vote: Dropboxes were all but banned in urban (ie Black) counties. Specifically, counties aren't allowed to provide more than 1 dropbox per 100,000 population—reducing the dropboxes in the Atlanta area from 107 to 25!
The decline in mail-in balloting, especially those returned to dropboxes, has a distinct racial tinge. Georgia’s biggest counties by population, Fulton and Cobb — both majority non-white — saw mail-in balloting dive from 259,000 to just 43,000.…

As was widely expected, the @federalreserve’s Federal Open Market Committee raised the target range for the Federal Funds #policy rate by 50 basis points (bps), to between 0.75% and 1.0%, and announced the start of #runoff of the central bank’s balance sheet.
As previously suggested by the #Fed’s March minutes, the pace of runoff was confirmed today as $95 billion/month ($60 billion in U.S. #Treasuries and $35 billion in Agency #MBS, with a three-month phase-in period.
Also as expected, the statement reiterated that the #FOMC “anticipates that ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate,” underscoring the seriousness of #Fed policymakers in getting #inflation and inflation expectations under control.

Amazing that it took so long for them to go into administration, considering their year end financials Image
One would think that insurance run-off is a boring industry, especially for a portfolio that has ceased underwriting in 2012. What was the issue? In 2018, EWIC acquired a portfolio of UK Building Guarantee Insurance, with an exposure to 55,000 contracts #insurance #runoff
These were completely in the final stage of this kind of insurance (Structural Indemnity Period), 10 years in which the insurance will cover damages which originated in the construction period. Now, 2018 appareantly was a bad time to take over such a portfolio Image
