The Biden campaign appears to have computer data harvesting under control.

I received an e-mail today asking for volunteers for Lawyers for Biden to do poll-watching and take election question calls. Of course, I volunteered. (I think there will be no billable hours on November 3. I need to brush-up on Arkansas election law.)

The interesting thing was that I received the e-mail. The campaign obviously knew that I am both a supporter and a lawyer. My guess is that the campaign harvested my occupation from the information provided in on-line contributions through Act Blue. That tells me that Act Blue is searching its data base for contributors who entered "attorney" or "lawyer" on the contribution form and then passing on the e-mail addresses to Lawyers for Biden. Just thinking to do that is impressive.

How do I get the nifty Lawyers for Biden signature thingy for future posts?

2. Absodamnlutely!

I doubt I can make much difference in blood-red south Arkansas. There is no reason for GOP chicanery here - Trump couldn't lose Arkansas on purpose. However, all I can do is the best I can do.

It is going to be a nasty fight

Check your PMs. I am not that technical but I think that I sent you the correct link for your signature block

4. Good for you. Your skills are needed.

Have you passed the Bar in any competitive states? Even from your home in Arkansas you could be a big help.

6. I'm too old to take another bar. I could get admitted on reciprocity but it seems a bad idea.

If I'm needed in Arkansas, I'm all in. Outside Arkansas, I'd be worse than worthless.

9. I think you sell yourself short. But good on you for stepping up.

Have a nice weekend. What’s left of it anyway.

5. Your occupation and donation amount is public and shared with the FEC when you donate.

It can be found in the public FEC database. You can look yourself up at opensecrets.org

11. That's amazing - if accurate.

If Trump doesn't win Arkansas by double digits, he's in real trouble.

Go Team!
