This is appalling

In addition to the race for SC governor, Congress and other races, there are non-binding questions on the ballot too.

Democratic Ballot Questions

Do you support passing a state law allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to patients?
Do you support passing a state law requiring the governor of South Carolina to accept all federal revenues offered to support Medicaid and Medicaid expansion efforts in the state?
Republican Ballot Questions

Do you believe that voters should have the option to choose to affiliate with a political party when they register to vote or change their voter registration in South Carolina
Do you believe that South Carolina’s tax code should be brought into conformity with the new Trump tax cuts in the federal tax code for maximum simplification and to lower the overall tax burden on South Carolina taxpayers and businesses?

ATTENTION South Carolina moving polling locations for next week's Primary

Heard this on local news, but unless you are politically aware and take responsibility to know where you vote, you will most likely go the the wrong location.

A Sinkhole Is Growing on the White House Lawn

Not from The Onion. But is a perfect metaphor.

A Sinkhole Is Growing on the White House Lawn

A sinkhole has formed on the White House and appears to be growing, according to reporters who observed the gap in the grassy ground.

The sinkhole was spotted on the White House's North Lawn, not far from the entrance to the briefing room, according to the Hill. Groundskeepers quickly surrounded the hole with cones and caution tape on Tuesday.

"Washington D.C. received measurable rain eight consecutive days through Saturday," said weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. "The total for that period of time was 6.14 inches, which is more than 2 inches greater than the average rainfall for the entire month."

Several White House reporters shared images of the sinkhole on social media.

Air National Guard C-130 Crashes In Georgia, Killing At Least 5

Updated at 5:11 p.m. ET

An Air National Guard cargo plane crashed near Savannah, Ga., on Wednesday morning. At least five people were killed, reports Amy Kiley of member station WABE.

The cargo plane, which is attached to the Puerto Rico Air National Guard's 156th Airlift Wing, was taking part in a training mission, says Capt. Jeff Bezore of the Georgia Air National Guard.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló said in a statement that the plane crashed shortly after taking off from the airport in Savannah in the course of a routine mission to Arizona.

"We're brothers and sisters, we supported one other in these missions, and so no matter who it is, it hurts us whenever something like this happens," Master Sgt. Roger Parsons of the Georgia Air National Guard said at a news conference Wednesday. "It affects all of us."

This plane took off over my office before nose diving into the ground. I heard and felt the impact. The site is less than a mile from our office and on a normally packed roadway.

The following is a video of the crash, so be warned it is intense.

GOP fundraiser at Trump property in New Jersey actually loses money
By Eric Boehlert - April 23, 20183984

Need to lose money in NJ? Throw a fundraiser at a Trump property featuring a Fox News speaker.

New Jersey Republicans, already on the precipice of election doom come November, made the fatal mistake of combining Trump and Fox News for a recent fundraiser, and ended up paying for it.

Like so many GOP groups, the state’s Morris County Republican Party held a fundraiser at Trump National Golf Club this year, at the cost of $24,000. Trump properties across the country have been flooded with Republican money as organizations try to make ties to him.

New Jersey Republican also paid out $30,000 for Fox News host Greg Gutfeld to be the evening’s speaker. But the whole night turned out to be a bust, with Morris County Republicans ending the night $6,000 in the red.

Not sure about the source, but it is the second time I saw the story, but could not find a link to that story.
