I for one am shocked that a mega church pastor with the last name dollar might be fleecing his flock for personal gain.

the article also talks about how Trump feels a strong kinship with these fellow grifters. birds of a feather, and all.

i'd be excited, but Georgia probably needs UN observers to guarantee a free and fair election.

Yeah, it definitely will be sketchy there. But i also think that Abrams has been on the ground there for two years working on safeguarding as best she can, and I believe GA just passed a rule that all GA votes have to have backup paper ballots, which is good.

Could go both ways.

These safe red states have never really had to put in a real effort towards cheating/disenfranchising on the level seen in the battlegrounds. Florida next door is a great example. It will depend on how proactive they've been in the last year as opposed to being reactive to polls slipping out of reach.

but in Georgia, white people are allowed to vote at Chik-Fil-A. black people were supposed to have voted last week.

Brian Kemp strikes me as pretty proactive about these sorts of things.

Yes, he's a veteran of the trade.

The worst part of all of this is that so many people are just living for Nov 3 for this nightmare to be over...and the very high likelihood that the nightmare extends for weeks on end. That's when things get twitchy for people.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden paid nearly $288,000 in federal income taxes last year, according to returns he released just hours before his Tuesday night debate with President Donald Trump.

The move came following a report from The New York Times that Trump paid just $750 in income taxes in 2016, the year he ran for president, and in 2017, his first year in the White House.

Biden and his wife, Jill, along with Biden’s running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, released their 2019 federal and state returns as the president contends with the political fallout from a series of Times reports about Trump’s long-hidden tax returns. The Times also reported that Trump paid no income tax at all in 10 of the 15 years prior to 2017.


The Bidens’ payment of $287,693 to the federal government in 2019 showed a substantial drop from the $1.5 million they paid in income taxes in 2018, reflecting both a decline in Biden’s book revenue and his decision to run for the presidency and a leave of absence from his academic post at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. After paying $91,000 in 2016, Biden’s last year as vice president in the Obama administration, the Bidens paid $3.7 million to the government in 2017, largely because of income from book deals.

The Biden campaign has moved aggressively to capitalize on the Times reports about Trump’s tiny tax payments. The campaign released a media ad showing that nurses, firefighters and other working-class Americans pay far more in annual federal taxes than the $750 Trump tax payments described by the Times.

Trump has denied the Times report, dismissing it as “fake news” at a press conference, but he has provided no evidence to refute it.

I would truly love to see that. I do hope that they do bring up his taxes in some fashion at some point. That and his comments about refusing to concede the election/his attempts to sabotage mail-in voting. Let him have to try and defend that insanity to the viewers.

I was just arguing with someone on another board who was rather dismissive of the idea that Trump was bending the CDC to his will. He also claimed hospitals weren't overwhelmed and called the report about the USPS plan to distribute masks being nixed by the White House "daft", so...yeah.

I just read an article earlier about how, if Biden wins Ohio on election night, that could hurt Trump's chances of trying to contest the election (not to say he wouldn't still try, of course, but it'd make it less likely that we'd have to actually seriously entertain his demands).

While Biden needs to land punches related to taxes and stuff, he needs to relentlessly focus on health care and say PREXISTING CONDITIONS and COVID over and over and over.

Having lived near the way more northern and western section of Mahattan (and now not too far from there in The Bronx) The Hudson River is something I often except for this year. Decades earlier I'd even been down right by it.

That was an amazing, insane day.
Very good ad. Who ever mentioned - some tightening, too.
