Arizona Election Fraud Hearing: How to Watch Live Stream

The hearing (and the livestream) will start at 10:00 a.m. local time (which is 1 p.m. Eastern.) The meeting is scheduled to take place at the Arizona House of Representatives Building, in Room HHR 4. The direct link to the livestream from House Hearing Room 4 is here. You can also see links to all the House Hearing livestreams here, just in case the first one doesn’t work for any reason.

According to the Arizona State Legislature, the Committee on Elections is hosting the special meeting, which will include testimony from Helen Purcell, Maricopa County Recorder, along with comments from the public on their experiences trying to vote. This is a nonpartisan meeting, addressing voting issues that both Democrats and Republicans faced and what can be done to fix the problems.

Several protests are also taking place today. There will be a March on Maricopa at the State Capitol at 9:45 a.m. MST, to coincide with the hearing. More than 200 are expected to attend.

There will also be two protests from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.: one in Tucson at the federal courthouse and one at the federal courthouse in Phoenix. These will will demand a complete counting of all provisional ballots, a random recount of unsorted vote-by-mail ballots, and the reinstatement of The Voting Rights Act.

Sanders Raises More Than $4 Million Since Saturday Victories

Bernie Sanders has raised more than $4 million since his victories in Saturday's contests in Washington state, Hawaii and Alaska.

Sanders' campaign spokesman Michael Briggs said Monday that the fundraising shows that the "people backing Bernie are charged up." It's one of Sanders' largest post-election fundraising hauls during his primary fight against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

The money will help the Vermont senator as he prepares for advertising in upcoming states such as Wisconsin, New York and Pennsylvania.

Washington Rep. Rick Larsen Angers Voters, Spurs Support For Challenger Mike LaPointe

Washington state’s District 2 overwhelmingly voted in favor of Bernie Sanders during Saturday’s caucuses. Despite this, some of the state’s pledged delegates have said they will ignore the results and vote for the candidate they’ve already chosen.

Congressman Rick Larsen, who represents the residents in Island, San Juan, King, Snohomish, Skagit, and Whatcom counties is urging voters to get behind Clinton after he votes for her at the convention despite several people reminding him that caucus-goers in his district chose Bernie Sanders. The lowest percentage point Sanders won in District 2 was 67.3 percent in King County. His highest margin of victory was 80.5 percent in Whatcom County.

Larsen’s constituents were clear in their rejection of Clinton, but instead of listening and promising to take their votes into consideration at the very least, Larson posted several condescending comments.
