On Friday, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity co-led by Kris Kobach released some emails about its work so far. The views were almost universally negative, for good reasons.
Last weekend I asked readers to respond to these questions:
“What does #notmypresident mean to you? What should this movement be aimed at doing, beyond spurring marches? How committed are you to #notmypresident? What actions should/will you and others take to show that Trump is #notmypresident?
Here are some of the responses I received through email. A few dozen more were posted on my Facebook feed from readers as well.
Yes, I know. Donald Trump won the presidency. But in elections in Kansas and Missouri, some pretty positive things happened.
Some victories were even a bit surprising. Take a look.
I have always believed that endorsements were made to support good people and good causes — not to try to pick winners.
With that in mind, how did I do in making more than 50 recommendations for Yael on the Trail posts in the 2016 Election?
9:20 a.m.: All of the Johnson County votes finally were counted by early Wednesday morning. They brought good and bad news for people wanting to fight back against Gov. Sam Brownback’s ruinous policies.
Remember when Gov. Sam Brownback’s office repeatedly said he wasn’t going to get involved in the battle over whether to retain four Kansas Supreme Court justices he doesn’t politically agree with?
Election Day brought the news that it appears Brownback lied.
Election 2016 is almost over! So are you ready to vote Tuesday?
Here’s your last-minute opportunity to read about most of the issues on the ballots in Missouri and Kansas.
Below are all local 28 posts I have written about the 2016 elections on Yael on the Trail. They include information — and endorsements — on the best candidates to beat back Gov. Sam Brownback in Kansas; cigarette taxes in Missouri; Supreme Court justice retention races in Kansas; the three questions in Kansas City; and much more.
Time for some fun: Here’s my contest for the 2016 election season.
The goal is to select winners in Kansas-side races and/or in Missouri-side races. Best part: There will be prizes!
Voters in Missouri and in Kansas will decide this fall whether to retain certain judges. But they don’t have to do it blindly.
Few stories are written about the men and women in black robes — unless they work for the Kansas Supreme Court this time around. However, there are ways to evaluate and judge for yourself if all of these men and women are worth keeping.
With 13 days until Election Day, supporters of retaining Kansas Supreme Court justices are fully engaged in costly, sometimes ugly battles that involve radio and TV ads, yard signs and endorsements.
Voters need to keep the justices on Nov. 8.
If that doesn’t happen, Gov. Sam Brownback will make the final choices in 2017 on replacement justices who could serve years, if not decades, after his ruinous administration concludes in January 2019.
