Could I briefly have the attention of the Democrats who follow me?

I'd like to talk to y'all about a D candidate for the State House in my birth state of Virginia 😬

Her name is Rebecca Leser, in VA-96
➡️ @rebeccaleser
➡️ @rebeccaforva
➡️ rebeccaforvirginia.com/donate
I've known Rebecca for over 10 years now (😱), since waaaaayyy back when we were both students at NC State with @ConenMorgan

All of us graduated in 2009, but she took her education more seriously than us, graduating magna cum laude while we did Student Government stuff 😂
Rebecca and I also happen to both be born on March 26th 😎

Regrettably, she's a cat person. But she's still good people
After we graduated, Rebecca spent 8 years as a financial aid counselor, helping broke students (like I once was) figure out how to pay for college. Then she became the grants coordinator for one of the local governments up there, seeing government machinery up close and personal
Rebecca's also the Chairman of the York-Poquoson Democratic Party, where she helped former Governor Tim Kaine win re-election over Confederate sympathizer and white nationalist Corey Stewart

Long story short: we don't agree on much politically, but I know Rebecca's a good person and I'd trust her ☺️

So I'm asking you to do 3 things:
➡️ Follow her at @rebeccaleser
➡️ Follow her campaign at @rebeccaforva
➡️ Toss a few bucks her way at rebeccaforvirginia.com/donate
I'll chip in another $5 for every donor to Rebecca's campaign between now and 11:59pm Pacific Daylight Time tonight

Just DM or @ me a screenshot showing you contributed, even if it's just $5 😬
Oh and tell your friends, voters, Democratic activists, Democrat-leaning independents, etc etc etc! 😉
Speak for yourself, I made sure to get 3 sealed transcripts (that are now locked inside my file cabinet) to make sure they couldn't take my degree away! 😉

We're only a couple years apart! Is your son stubborn and independent-minded by chance?

I can confirm she satisfies these criteria 😂

Much appreciated! 👊

Also means I'm on the hook for an extra $5!

Not at all, just supports my theory that there's something to astrology after all 😂 (I, too, have been described as arrogant. Often. 🙈)

I have a pair of Aries magnets, showing the supposed traits they exhibit

And tbh I find it very disturbing how well they describe me 🤣

These are the magnets, @realposhpenguin

Seems accurate to me 😂
Shiiiiiiiiiiitt -- IIRC I bought the diploma frame before I got the diploma 😂

Got another screenshot via DM, so that puts at +2 donors for this impromptu Twitter fundraiser for @rebeccaleser's campaign! And we just started!

1️⃣ Donate at rebeccaforvirginia.com/donate
2️⃣ DM or @ me a screenshot
3️⃣ I'll kick in +$5
*to sacrifice as bait in the zombie apocalypse, sure

I'll chip in $5 for out-of-state donors too, it's all crowdfunding at the grassroots level anyway ☺️

Short answer is I have no idea, long answer is thankfully I don't have to observe them now that I have the law license 😂

Had to disappear for a bit to run an errand for the gf (replacing her fried cable box), but got 2 more DMs!

We're now at $5x6 😱
So apparently I missed several of these 😂 This is #9!

I support red flag laws conceptually, but that's one where minor technical differences in approach could totally f*ck things up due process-wise. I think how NC handles DV issues is generally good, a red flag law here could be easily doable. Idk re VA

Haven't decided where I fall on bump stocks yet. Gun enthusiasts know we wear at least 2+ of them on each pair of jeans
Look at their faces! They look like monarchs, ruling the home with absolute authority

Hard pass 😂

Maybe with other folks. I harp on details for most laws 😉

Didn't you *just* get your cat though? 😜

Donors 10, 11, and 12 came in via DM while I was driving!
It looks like you're #15!

Meaning y'all now have me on the hook for +$75, with 8 hours to go!

Just got #16 via DM
Looks like you're #17, and didn't even ask for her stance on pie!

The years when I was a college dropout were unpleasant (esp the first few months when I was homeless). So when I finally got my degrees they were framed, hung, and positioned so no other wall bling can sit as high

This was/is the inner wall of my office when started practice
We're all trapped in this dystopian hellscape together, just doing my part to help bring it all crashing down 😉

#18 just came in via DM!
I know I've shared the manatee pic before. I must have.

Got you counted! If my math is right, you're #19!

We've officially hit 20! I'm gonna have to donate another $100 later tonight 😱

We've still got 7 hours to go!

Directions here:
#21 just came in via DM
That makes you #22, even if I should razz you for not following directions 😜

And we just got #23 via DM!
You're #25! I'm now on the hook for $100 😱

Just got #26 via DM!
JTDC I can't do math worth a damn right now 😂

Yes, $125!

Alright so some quick updates on the e-fundraiser for @rebeccaleser / @rebeccaforva

1️⃣ We'll count folks until 11:59p Pacific, so west coasters have time to chip in

2️⃣ But I've gotta finish packing for this NJ trip

3️⃣ Which means I'm counting on y'all to spread the word
So if you'd like to participate in my absence, plz do the following between now and 11:59p PDT tonight:

➡️ Donate at rebeccaforvirginia.com/donate
➡️ DM or @ me a screenshot
➡️ I'll kick in +$5

(Then follow @rebeccaleser / @rebeccaforva on here 😉)
Also got #30, #31, and #32 via DM overnight

Will circle back with @rebeccaleser / @rebeccaforva to make sure I haven't missed anyone, but assuming that turns out to be right I'm at +$160
Apparently 6 of y'all don't know how to follow directions though, b/c we were actually at 38? 😜

So I went ahead and put in my $190 this morning

*THANK YOU* everybody for helping out @rebeccaleser / @rebeccaforva's campaign! 👊
I told you she was a cat person? How many cat persons do you know with just one cat?? 😜


The only reason my gf has one cat is b/c she knows there's a nonzero chance he'll be a snack for Chance, and didn't want double the risk 😂
