    2018 Democrats thread

    Campaigns have private, closed door events all the time. Usually they're $10k/plate fundraisers for their wealthy donors, though, and the press doesn't get in a big tizzy over that.

    Midterms 2018

    1-4 chance for R's to keep the house is pretty far from zero imo. That's one out of four coinflips. Their other two models have Dems at 2/3 chance. Gonna be fun when the final vote is something like D+8 but republicans still keep the house

    WV GOP is currently impeaching their whole Supreme Court, which many/most may or may not deserve it, but they're timing it so that the current 3-2 democratic majority is fully replaced by the Republican governor after they'd have to put the positions on the 2018 ballot. NC GOP says "hold my beer"

    **President Trump 2018 Thread**

    That's what the latest tape of Laura Trump was about, her offering Omaraso an indefinite position in the campaign not really doing much but earning $15k/month. Laura even mentioned in the tape that the money for the payments would be coming from donors and mainly small dollar donors. Trump's former bodyman Keith Schiller has been getting $15k/month from the RNC in what appears to be a very similar hush money situation. https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/21/politics/donald-trump-keith-schiller-rnc-contract/index.html

    Your first Album collection/First concert attended

    First concert would have been one of those Q101 Twisted Christmas shows as my friend's dad's work had a skybox at the UC back in the 90's. Probably was excited to go see Everclear or some other 90's garbage at the time, but I did get to see The Cure and I've liked them ever since. I have tinnitus now from way too many shows at Metro, Fireside Bowl, etc. in the late 90's through the mid 00's.

    Georgia GOP planning on closing 7 of 9 polling places in majority minority county https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2018/08/15/us/ap-us-polling-places-proposed-closures.html If Roberts and the rest of the conservatives on the court hadn't gutted the VRA back in 2013 with one of the worst rulings in generations, this wouldn't be possible. But they had no problem enabling the conservative movement's goal of suppressing as many voters as possible. Looking forward to decades more of these rulings from an increasingly illegitimate court.

    listen, buddy, we must hear out both sides of the "hitler was right/kill all jews and minorities" debate until the end of time in the name of Free Speech, but I will NOT have any of this discussing insane radical ideas like "not letting people unnecessarily suffer and die in the wealthiest country on the planet. we must have boundaries for reasonable discourse. I was curious to see how many of my IL-3 neighbors voted for a literal Nazi in this year's primary: slightly more than 20,000! anyway it's gotta just be a really, really weird coincidence that all of these open Nazis keep running as Republicans, and also that the Trump admin seems to be packed to the brim with insane racist conspiracy theorists. can't possibly say anything about the underlying ideology though.

    PA Catholic Church child abuse

    It's 301 out of something like 1700 total in PA. That's a pretty substantial percentage. e: this report also excluded Philly, which has been investigated separately.

    PA Catholic Church child abuse

    You have to imagine that the same sort of investigation in other states would come up with similar results. And it's not just a US thing either.
