Big to see the Dispatch editorial board endorsing Nan Whaley — as much, the bd makes clear, about what has happened to the Republican Party and how DeWine has reacted as anything Whaley has done.…
Shorter Dispatch: Why are you spineless, Mike? Image
Mike DeWine was first elected to office (as a prosecutor) before I was born, was in the US Senate until Sherrod beat him in 2006, and then came back by way of state gov’t positions. And yet, as the Dispatch makes clear, he’s afraid of his own party now. And not focused on Ohio.
Nan Whaley can and has made her case for herself in #OHGov, but Mike DeWine has sadly also made the case against himself.

I know this is all surreal, but, I’ve gotta be me … What Elon Musk has already done to Twitter as a place sucks. What he’s about to do (or has started doing) to the company is awful. So sorry to people, in this moment, going through such abrupt change or job loss due to him.
I found my way into most of my jobs and work over the past 13 years since I moved back to DC, in one way or another, through Twitter. I found so many friendships, as well as relationships and … a prince (or two) for, whatever … in these tweets. I’ve grown and learned so much.
I interviewed President Obama in the Roosevelt Room, I’ve written for the New York Times, I’ve met and become friends with so many incredible people from the theater — and I was honest with some of you here before I started my path to sobriety, and in dark moments of depression.

This is NOT a case to sleep on: Oklahoma is arguing that if a state wants to kill someone who is *not* in their custody b/c the person is serving a diff sentence elsewhere, that other jurisdiction should be *required* to turn the person over for execution.…
What makes this even more MUST-NOT-IGNORE: The case is currently in front of ultra-conservative Judge Reed O'Connor in Texas — of anti-ACA, anti-LGBTQ, & anti-PrEP rulings — so unexpected rulings could follow (esp if DOJ's effort to move the case fails).…
Oklahoma actually argues: We have a death sentence and execution date, therefore, that's the "public interest." The fact that the statute at issue is a *federal statute* that assigns the public interest determination to a *federal official* is irrelevant.…

OVERNIGHT: Oklahoma filed its reply in its execution transfer denial litigation, as well as a response opposing DOJ’s motion to move the litigation to Louisiana, where John Hanson is serving a federal life sentence. New, at @lawdorknews:… Oklahoma argues its desire ...
Here is Oklahoma’s opposition to DOJ’s motion to move the case to Louisiana, arguing that it’s all about “convenience” — and going after DOJ’s “screed about ‘forum-shopping.”… At no point during Defendan...
And here is Oklahoma’s reply in support of its motion for habeas or a TRO/injunction to get custody of Hanson, arguing that DOJ (incorrectly, OK argues) believes the prisoner transfer statute “imposes no constraints at all on the federal executive branch.”… Defendants’ entire response...

NEW: Trump’s tax returns remain safe from the House Ways & Means Committee for now. Chief Justice Roberts issued a (temporary) stay and ordered the committee to respond to Trump’s request for a more permanent stay by next Thursday.
No, this is not a ruling on the merits, but it is a decision that prevents a lower-court ruling from going into effect for now. And, Trump has now successfully pushed this past Election Day.
