Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff was in town to give a speech about women's reproductive health today. I did not attend that event.

The other purpose of the gathering I was at was to pick up yard signs. I got several Biden/Harris signs for my friends and neighbors.

Secret Service would not allow attendees to get out of their car. I did get to shake his hand. We talked about the DU. You bet I mentioned that we raised OVER $2.4 million in 2020 for Biden/Harris. He was impressed. He shook my hand again and sincerely said thank you. I didn't see any TV coverage.

You can see my AFSCME shirt.

(6,516 posts)DU is a great place and all Democrats in office should know about it! I've put the link on Mastodon and I hope it brings like minded folks here!!

Hey Steve! You have a great beard!!! I'll bet you get cornered at Christmas to be Santa!

#### Omaha Steve

(102,395 posts)This is from Bush I.

#### Lunabell

(6,516 posts)Was that you behind that fluffy white beard? And yes, don't park in handicapped spaces and don't block them by parking too close. My wife is in a wheelchair and we see jerks doing this all the time. Can't even get her in her wheelchair because someone has parked in the blue area next to the parking spot. We were at the doctor's office and one of the employees was the culprit! Oh, we had a few words with that employee and the office manager! I was full on Karen that day, lol. But seriously, who blocks a handicapped space but a selfish jerk?

(31,712 posts)When we lived in Lincoln (1994-2000), we hosted a cocktail reception at our home in 2000 prior to a Jefferson Jackson dinner that year, where former Senator ( and former Governor)Kerrey attended, along with Ben Nelson who was running for-- and would win--the Senate, and JFK' s speechwriter, Ted Sorensen. That was a kick, but I've never been as close as you were to the power behind the Office of the President!

Thank you for all you do, Omaha Steve!

#### Cyberologist

(36 posts)and it's been like this mostly for nearly 4 years, they are mainly focused on maga chaos which

dominates the news cycle with on going never ending dramas.

NYT, WPo then they write hit pieces on how Vice President Harris does nothing (which isn't true).

She and Second Gentleman sets minimal coverage.

#### RussBLib

(9,467 posts).....how many good Dems have never even heard of DU? If Emhoff, or Biden (!) were to give a shout-out to DU, I'd bet our numbers would explode. Maybe too much....
