Will she or Manchin upset Justice Breyer's replacement.
Roy Pardee
19:02
I understand that both have been voting for Biden's nominees for the lower judiciary spots
Roy Pardee
19:10
so... 🤞
Roy Pardee
22:24
is she being subpoenaed, or was it just a request
Roy Pardee
22:27
?
Lynn Brady
23:25
And the walls are beginning to crumble.
Dwight Rousu
23:32
What prison will they put him in?
Kate Butt
26:00
Intimidating poll workers.
Roy Pardee
26:07
GOP was under a consent decree for pulling that garbage before, weren't they?
Terri Bates
26:37
And who would these election police answer to
Jeremy C
27:22
The State’s governor probably.
Roy Pardee
30:47
is this wa state or dc?
Joanna Roomes (she/her)
31:08
Read Danny Westneat's column in Seattle Times
Robert Brown
31:36
I am thinking that Republicans are convincing people that Democrats are quashing freedom.
Dwight Rousu
32:15
But they were already bad districts in 2011 gerrymanderin
Robert Brown

Nashville is being cut up into three districts.

I see this Republican shift at work. It’s regressive taxes and inflated cost of living; facts matter less than the story that Dems “take your money and give it to someone else”
Roy Pardee
34:34
very curious what changed his mind--he was really obstinate in the face of calls for him to retire
Carol Sullivan
34:40
NPR said he could nominate, get someone in place to take over as Breyer retires.
Diane Gordon
34:47
I am hoping Biden selects Anita Hill! Wouldn’t Clarence Thomas love that!!
Jeremy Street
35:07
The new redistricting divides 6th ld that used to be purple into red. It took Cheney (blue) out of the 6th, and put us in the 9th - mostly red. Ugh!
Carol Sullivan
35:09
Complete the process, all but confirming the nominee, I think.
Joanna Roomes (she/her)
35:18
Great idea....Anita Hill!
Bryan Callan
35:40
In White House Briefing today Jen Psaki was asked a number of times if Biden might nominate V.P. Harris to the Supreme Court
Carol Sullivan
36:31
Anita Hill . . . ultimate slap in the face to Clarence Thomas. . . .
David Gordon
36:58
dissents count for nothing, right?
Roy Pardee
37:46
they have no legal force I don't think. In theory they may chasten the majority
Kate Butt
38:17
So much for a non activist Supreme Court.
Jeremy C

If a politician at the national level has money left in an election account at the time of retirement, how must the money be disposed of.
Carol Sullivan
44:07
Interesting thought, Jim!

With vote b mail a family can fill out their ballot together, even allowing a child to fil in the small voting square. What a good way to learn to vote? Is this a good idea to send around to everyone.?
