Kagro in the Morning

Aug 4, 2022

David Waldman and Greg Dworkin, as usual, bring you the latest at the earliest:

This week, voters went to the polls in historic numbers in Kansas, flabbergasting the GQP, and even inching Nate Silver a bit towards reality. Samuel Alito skulks off somewhere to beat his gavel.

Michigan’s fourth-place Guber-candidate Ryan Kelly suspects that something illicit happened in his election. Arizona’s Kari Lake also detected fraud in her election but was unable to get a bead on it by morning. In Michigan, Peter Meijer, one of the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, found himself primaried into the cornfield.  Is it Democrat’s fault that we can’t have nice Republicans? Or could it be that Republicans went to the polls and then voted for the Republicans they wanted? Apparently, voters do get who they vote for… or keep voting for.

The primaries move to Tennessee today, but many fear being seen at the polls. One in five Black adults in Tennessee are barred from voting. Pamela Moses asked if she could vote, was told she could, and when she did was given a 6-year prison sentence.

Fake electors are about a lot more than their fake electing, and the DOJ is following the rot to right up to their heads. It turns out that Homeland Security watchdog Joseph Cuffari was into violating ethics before his present job, which seems to be all about violating ethics.

Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins have joined Kyrsten Sinema and Tim Kaine for a bipartisan bill to codify Roe v. Wade. How they hope to accomplish this is nuanced, complex, and thus up David’s KITM alley. How does Krysten Sinema do it?

Teachers — distrusted, demoralized, defunded, and generally shat upon by conservatives for decades — are quitting their jobs for some reason.
