Voting Integrity Panel Event–LWV
Next month, the Orange County League of Women Voters will host a panel on voting rights and the integrity of our election system. The panel will consist of the Supervisors of Elections in Orange and Seminole County, Bill Cowles and Michael Ertel, and Susan Pynchon, founder and executive director of the Florida Fair Election Coalition. Susan was one of the activists in the HBO and emmy-nominated movie “Hacking Democracy.” The movie can be viewed here for free. Even though the movie is 10 years old, the disturbing information revealed is just as relevant now, if not more so. Attached is another clip about Ms. Pynchon’s continuing efforts to fight for free, fair and transparent elections in Florida. The movie “Hacking Democracy” will inspire many more questions about the integrity of our election system. Hope you can make it to this most important event armed with your questions and concerns.
Dems and the insanity defense
You don’t need to be Einstein to understand that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” So why are the Democrats continuing down this loopy path when it comes to elections in Florida (and elsewhere)? Daily Kos tries to shed some light on the 2018 governor’s race shaping up in Florida. If we’re being offered another DINO (Democrat in Name Only), as the piece says, history proves that is going to end badly, again. Scott Maxwell, from the Orlando Sentinel, weighs in on the matter and gives the odds of winning the governorship to the Republicans (again) with the current likely candidates. The disastrous Democratic leadership decisions of the past must not continue to haunt and hurt us. We must demand the new leadership’s assurance that we will have access to a legitimate, fair and honest primary election. An insanity defense isn’t going to cut it anymore.
