Replying to @mjschwartzman
In his letter, Justice Scalia criticized UVA for rejecting admission of three of his children. He concluded by saying: "I will not accept the Jefferson Award, or anything else, from the University of Virginia. Not now. Not ever." /4

The bottom line here is @GovMikeDeWine set a specific case count target for Ohio to hit in order to remove health orders He's stuck by that number for months, but suddenly reversed course today. Then essentially tried to bury that fact by announcing a mega vaccine lottery

Netanyahu has completley lost control. More than 1000 rockets launched by Hamas within days. Mobs of Arabs and Jews lynching innocent citizens from the other side. Synagogues set on fire. Civil war-like images on television. A legacy of hate and divison. haaretz.com/israel-news/.pre…

Rep Pat Fallon (R-TX) says it was a "mob of misfits".. not an "insurrection" It was "not an insurrection" seems a consistent talking point for GOP during US House hearing today.

According to a recent study from @ClevelandClinic, between 1/1 and 4/13 of this year, 99.75% of the people hospitalized there for COVID had not been vaccinated. This is powerful, real-world evidence from the Buckeye State that 𝐯𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐬𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐬!

It’s time to end the health orders. It’s been a year. You’ve followed the protocols. You’ve done what we’ve asked. You’ve bravely fought this virus. And now, our cases are down, and we have a tested and proven weapon in the vaccine that all Ohioans 12 and over can utilize.

To those of us not fortunate enough to have grown up in MN reading Jim Klobuchar, he became a vivid figure through the campiagn speeches of his daughter @amyklobuchar. RIP.
Jim Klobuchar, an intrepid son of the Iron Range who with grace and puckish wit chronicled the lives of ordinary and fabled Minnesotans as a longtime columnist for the Star Tribune, died Wednesday at the Emerald Crest care facility in Burnsville. He was 93.strib.mn/3tHBIN8

Having worked on dozens of campaigns and progressive causes and encouraging others to step up to public service, I felt it was time I led by example. In 2009, I ran, won, and became the first Asian-born immigrant sworn into office in 400-year old legislature @VaHouse #SixAAPI
Happy #AAPIHeritageMonth, and welcome to our tweet chat! Let's get to know some of the legislators participating today. Q1: What led you to run for office? #SiXAAPI

🚨 Yesterday, observers from my office discovered a WiFi router connected to the "audit" servers. There’s no way to ensure that ballot images, vote counts, & perhaps voter data weren’t connected to external networks or the internet.
Replying to @senyorreporter
There has been a long confab between audit contractors and the two representatives of @SecretaryHobbs’ office (in pink) at the hard drives in the middle of the floor.

She mailed a single, five page document, anonymously. It told an important truth, and made a difference. And she got the longest prison sentence of anyone who ever shared secret information with the press. And that's just the start. The details are horrible and stunning
Reality Winner was the FBI’s ‘head on a pike’ for Trump. It’s time to set her free. ...My column, pegged to a new documentary that makes her mistreatment painfully clear washingtonpost.com/lifestyle…

"Cheney’s remorseless last stand — and the chilly reception it received from House Rs, who cleared from the chamber as she began her remarks — also highlighted how GOP leaders...have tethered themselves to Trump's election lies as a matter of survival." nytimes.com/2021/05/11/us/po…
