Colorado SOS Wayne Williams says he'll turn over publicly available voter data to White House ...

Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams said Thursday he plans to fulfill a White House commission’s request for detailed state voter data by providing the same publicly available information that would be available to anyone who asks — but he’ll hold back certain data considered confidential.

Along with every other secretary of state in the country, Williams received a letter Wednesday detailing the request from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a co-chair of the bipartisan Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which was created last month by President Donald Trump to examine vulnerabilities in election systems “that could lead to improper voter registrations, improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting.”

The commission, which is co-chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, is seeking a raft of information from state election officials on their voter rolls, including full names and addresses, dates of birth, party affiliation, voting history going back a decade, felony convictions, military and overseas citizen status.



I just emailed our secretary of state, Wayne Williams, and requested that he NOT share my voter information with the highly dubious voter fraud inquiry commission.

Video from inside ADAPT protest at Cory Gardner's office

Damned hard to watch. Police are on scene. Friend who is involved reports that arrests are happening, that much media is present.



Link has reporting and videos of arrests.

Maddow strikes again.

That was one compelling interview, with Deborah Swackhamer, science professor from U of Minnesota, current chair of an EPA science committee --- talked about how the new EPA team tried to get her to change her testimony to congress, etc.

Essentially, the interview exposed the template that Trump and the GOP congress are using to stack the deck, and not just in the EPA. It was chilling in its implications, and we'd best be paying very close attention.

Holy crap.

Rescue? RESCUE????

Senator Barrasso (R WY) just said, in defense of the Republican repeal/replace effort, that they’re “just trying to rescue Americans”. I’ve still got a Charlie horse in my side from laughing so hard. Since when is rescue demonstrated by throwing multiple millions of hurting people into the nearest landfill? Once more I am reminded of my Wyoming friends who feel safer with Barrasso (an orthopedic surgeon) in Washington instead of at home with a scalpel.

GOPs demonization of Pelosi is so effective that even Democrats believe it

In the days since Democrats narrowly lost the fourth special election of 2017, House majority leader, Nancy Pelosi has become the primary target of frustrated Democrats. “It’s time for a new generation of leadership in the party,” according to Democratic Representative Seth Moulton of Massachusetts.

Representative Kathleen Rice of New York echoed these sentiments in calling for Pelosi and the entire Democratic leadership team to be replaced. “We need a vision . . . and we need a message . . . We just don’t have either one of those in the present leadership.”


Still, there is something odd about the attacks on Pelosi. They have little to do what she has or hasn’t done as House majority leader, but rather how Republicans perceive her.

What the heck did I do to cause this?

Has anyone else experienced this? I'd really like to get rid of it, it eats up about a third of my screen. And danged if I can figure out how to make it go away!
