HuffPost: "Did James Comey Cost Hillary Clinton The Election? We Asked The Late-Deciding Voters"

"Comey was a factor for some but not others, and even then, it’s not clear how decisive his letters were. For many voters, random, often arbitrary moments from the campaign proved motivating in often unexpected ways. That Clinton left herself vulnerable to their whims is the story of the election as much as the eleventh-hour pronouncement from the FBI director."

"The Clinton campaign’s argument that Comey decided the election is based on simple math. Data shows that the majority of voters who made up their minds during the last week of the election broke for Trump ― and in significant numbers. Comey’s dual announcements were the major revelation of the week; ergo, he must have changed the course of the election.

This isn’t just a public posture, either. In a private conference call two days after the vote, Clinton’s campaign staff told surrogates that internal data showed voters unfavorable to either candidate broke heavily towards Trump “by a 20 to 30 percent margin.”"

"The letter itself didn’t phase me or move me either way on Clinton. But her reaction to it kind of solidified it,” Hernandez said. “If I wanted to say when I knew for sure, it was when they started attacking Comey for doing his job in the weekend prior to the election.”


Mississippi Church Member Charged in 'Vote Trump' Arson

Source: ABC News

A Mississippi man arrested in the burning of an African-American church that was spray-painted with the words "Vote Trump" is a member of the congregation, the church's bishop said.

Andrew McClinton, 45, of Leland, Mississippi, was charged Wednesday with first degree arson of a place of worship, said Warren Strain, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. McClinton is African-American.

McClinton was arrested in Greenville, where Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.

Hopewell Bishop Clarence Green said McClinton is a member of the church. Green said he didn't know about the arrest until he was called by The Associated Press.

All in good fun: "Millennial International: Sponsor a Millennial Today"

"A typical sponsorship program costs $29 a month; Millennial International is actually $2900 a month."

"Am I capable of having a job? Sure. But I just feel, like, maybe employment right now would just kinda be stifling my creativity."

"I brought him an apple pie my wife had baked him, but I totally forgot he's gluten free...he really didn't have much energy...turned out he was on a juice cleanse, and I wanna respect that."

"Many of these kids in traditional sponsorship programs are fighting diseases like malaria, pneumonia, tuberculosis...and these millennials have the same struggles: peanut allergies, pollen sensitivity, lactose intolerance...kids in Africa are getting typhoid...Declan was recently diagnosed with tennis elbow."

"I was originally paying vision and eyecare insurance for him...but it turns out his eyeglasses weren't even real."
