Republican idiocy

Tuesday Twitter roundup

Looking for malfeasance? Look in the mirror:

An SBI which was removed from the Attorney General's control and placed directly under his opponent, Governor McCrory. The stench of corruption in his administration is overwhelming.

This Tweet struck me as very odd:

Unless of course you have already voted, in which case this Republican is advising you to break the law. I don't know if this is a real thing or not, although I have occasionally wondered if this could happen when they check off names in their voting "books" and not computers. But this could also be more voter fraud paranoia floated by the GOP.

McCrory lays his bet on fancy horses to save his campaign

But he might be gambling with taxpayer dollars and not his own:

“This is bigger, with all due respect, than the All-Star Game, a football game, a basketball game — combined, times two. This economic impact is huge,” McCrory said of the 13-day equestrian competition during a news conference at the Charlotte Chamber.

Mark Bellissimo, CEO of the equestrian center, said the project requires only a small amount of public financing, including marketing and security. He anticipates his group’s budget will be between $50-$60 million.

Of course, he doesn't say how much of that $50-$60 million will be sucked out of public coffers, but we need that info desperately. Because the 2018 Games were originally contracted to be held in Canada, but they couldn't afford to do it:

Voter turnout numbers encouraging:

Unfortunately, this also means Republicans will be chirping, "See, even with only one site open, it didn't deter voters." And of course we'll never know how many more votes would have been cast if there had been multiple sites open the 1st seven days of voting. We do know most of those voters had to stand in line for 1-2 hours, which is unacceptable. And it's certain they will ignore this:

Time for a friendly reminder:

Even though the courts have stepped in and reinstated out-of-precinct voting, it's still less than ideal. Unless I'm mistaken, those are cast as provisional votes, meaning the local BoE can give them a thumb's up (or down). Check your registration and fix it while you can.
