Rachel Maddow, one of the MSNBC liberal talk show hosts, is incensed when Kay Hagan refused to attend a debate giving the Republican challenger a full hour of uncontested time to campaign unapposed in front of the cameras.
It’s harvest time in Colorado, and not just for pumpkins. Concerns are running high over door-to-door campaign workers asking voters for their mail-in ballots in what is known as “ballot harvesting.”
Now that all-mail voting is the law of the land in Colorado, the challenge for campaigns is to persuade voters to drop off or mail in their ballots — or hand them to the foot soldiers who turn up on their doorsteps offering to do it for them.
Only problem is, these ballot collectors either change ballots or simply don’t turn them in if they have Republican candidates or conservative initiatives checked.
Ballot harvesting is much easier than the old school method of voting dead people pioneered by Richard J. Daley in Cook County Illinois during the 1968 presidential election.
Ballot harvesting may be the only way to get Governor Hickenlooper and Senator Udall re-elected.
The Dallas Cowboys released defensive end Michael Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, another setback as the NFL's first openly gay player tries to make an active roster during the regular season for the first time.
Michael Sam spent seven weeks with the Cowboys after signing to their practice squad on Sept. 3, four days after he was among the final cuts by the St. Louis Rams at the end of the preseason.
The Dallas Cowboys replaced Michael Sam with linebacker Troy Davis of Central Florida and defensive tackle Ken Bishop of Northern Illinois on their practice squad.
The photo shows Michael Sam celebrating his selection in the NFL draft with a kiss for his boyfriend Vito Cammisano.
President Obama delivered a blow to Democratic Senate candidates looking to distance themselves from his flagging approval ratings Monday, saying lawmakers avoiding him on the campaign trail were “strong allies and supporters” who have “supported my agenda in Congress.”
The president went on to say, “The bottom line is, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress.”
The reason they are in trouble now is because they supported Mr. Obama.
Former Suns guard and NBA executive Rex Chapman was arrested Friday and accused of shoplifting more than $14,000 in Apple merchandise from a retail store in Scottsdale.
Chapman’s mug shot is shown above on left.
He is shown in a Phoenix Suns game at right.
Apple Store employees told police that Chapman picked up items in the store and made it appear that he was paying for them using a self-checkout system via iPhone app. He would then leave the store without actually paying for the items, they said.
Chapman allegedly took the items to a local pawn shop and sold them for cash.
The report says there’s one way to respond when the National Association of Black Journalists condemns you for treating black employees badly: Cut them off at the knees. Yup - No - More - Money.
On Friday it was reported that CNN has pulled its financial support for the organization for its 2015 convention and job fair.
National Association of Black Journalists President Bob Butler announced the stinging news at the Board of Directors meeting Friday.
Last week the black journo group issued a statement condemning CNN under the leadership of Jeff Zucker for the past year. “I know CNN is going through layoffs, but the departure of so many African Americans is worrisome,” Butler wrote in a release with this searing headline: “NABJ Concerned About Atmosphere at CNN for African Americans.”
The National Association of Black Journalists condemned CNN for treating black employees badly yet they expected the Cable News Channel to keep giving them handouts. Maybe next time the National Association of Black Journalists will think twice about biting a hand that fed them.
