Was the return of the paper ballot in VA a factor in Tuesday's election or its results?

"Brazile Denies Democratic Primary Was Rigged"

"Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) interim chairwoman Donna Brazile said she found 'no evidence' that the 2016 Democratic presidential primary process was fixed, taking issue with the use of the word 'rigged' by others."

snip------------------------------------------------------------------

"In the excerpt published in Politico [November 2], Brazile said she was tasked with searching for proof that Clinton’s team had fixed the nomination process in her favor.

'By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart,”'Brazile wrote, referring to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who ran an ultimately unsuccessful bid against Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

But in the [November 5 "This Week with George Stephanopoulos"] interview, Brazile said she told Sanders she found "no evidence" that the primary was fixed against him."

"Donna Brazile: I considered replacing Clinton with Biden as 2016 Democratic nominee."

From the WaPo story:

"Whenever Brazile got frustrated with Clinton’s aides, she writes, she would remind them that the DNC charter empowered her to initiate the replacement of the nominee. If a nominee became disabled, she explains, the party chair would oversee a complicated process of filling the vacancy that would include a meeting of the full DNC.

After Clinton’s fainting spell, some Democratic insiders were abuzz with talk of replacing her — and Brazile says she was giving it considerable thought.

The morning of Sept. 12, Brazile got a call from Biden’s chief of staff saying the vice president wanted to speak with her. She recalls thinking, “Gee, I wonder what he wanted to talk to me about?” Jeff Weaver, campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), called, too, to set up a call with his boss, and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley sent her an email."

Hillary Tribute Thread: Happy Birthday Madame Secretary!

The Woman in the Arena

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong woman stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the woman who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends herself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if she fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that her place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Matt Damon, Russell Crowe Reportedly Helped Kill a 2004 New York Times Harvey Weinstein Article

"Though the New York Times has been widely celebrated for its article exposing decades of sexual-harassment accusations against Harvey Weinstein, one journalist claims the paper sat on an earlier article detailing the producer’s misconduct. Sharon Waxman, founder of the Wrap, writes that her own investigate reporting, which took her on an international trip to uncover rumors of Weinstein’s sexual misconduct, was cut from the Times in 2004 under pressure from several Hollywood elites."
