1. Okey dokey.. There is a vicious regressive version of election reform going

on in the states with Repug Govs.. They are disenfranchising people left and right. The noly coverage I;m seeing is Rachel's.

4. Do you have a link to Rachel's coverage?

It' s not just ER the R governor's are going after. It's a massively regressive agenda hitting health, voting rights, education, the arts. You name it, they are after it.

I'm in Texas. Our Lege is the poster child for bad Republican ideas.

worked with Election Protection folks and Gathering to Save Our Democracy (TN election reform group) Would like to see much more coverage of voting machine issues. Wish we could establish a PR campaign covering traditional media, social media, etc. and keep this story front and center

Then...all the rest!

17. I'm in!

I also was initially introduced to DU 7 years ago through this forum.

I believe the events in Venango County in PA could develop into a story that even the MSM would be forced to cover. Let's give Mary Beth Kuznik and BradBlog all the support we can to push this story. For more info on what's going on there:

18. I doubt I'm any "help" to this group.....

... but it's my biggest, over-riding concern - so will subscribe to read the genuinely smart people.
