To be clearÖ they were elected but never served


39-year-old Laughton was formerly a Democratic representative in New Hampshire, first elected to the legislature in 2012. He became known as the first openly transgender individual to hold public office in the United States, but withdrew before taking the role when it was revealed that he had served four months in prison in 2008 on a felony conviction for identity and credit card fraud and falsifying physical evidence.



But this will surely be used as Ö all Dems and all trans are actually pedosÖso we should enact laws to restrict both trans and Dems

To be clear, he was elected multiple times and did serve. Creepy people on both sides of the political divide.

After the sentence related to the 2008 conviction was exhausted, Laughton was allowed to run for office again in 2019. He was elected selectman in 2011, 2019, and 2021. He was also elected state representative in 2020.

Laughton won his most recent election in November of 2022, but he resigned less than one month after securing the seat following scrutiny for yet another criminal conviction. It was learned that just two months prior to his election, he had been charged with violating a stalking order that had been from an unidentified woman.

Not excited that the dem leadership is pushing election lawyer Marc Elias to the side

https://www.axios.com/2023/07/31/biden-marc-elias-democrats-election-lawsuits

I wonít deny he does go for headlines, but he has been very effective and really fights hard when it comes to voting cases

and we need more of that!

Itís the one front that Dems should never compromise on, election laws and how they are enforced is so critical. 

So many elections are won on the margins and if itís one thing the GOP has some mad skills in, it is figuring out exactly how to win on the margins.  If there are more people/votes that want to elect GOP  representativesÖ sobeit

But Iím convinced they are exerting minority control of the entire nation by winning elections on slim margins where they did just enough to suppress the vote

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin says he is ďthinking seriouslyĒ about leaving the Democratic Party and declaring himself an Independent before the 2024 election.

I never understood what the benefit of having him be in the party if he's constantly voting against the party line. Controlling the Senate doesn't mean much if he's voting against you.

Seriously? Manchin was the only reason we controlled the senate, the committees and could get appointees throughÖ he might vote against some bills but heís still important. There is no way itís accurate to say he votes against all democratic bills, nominees etc

Do you know how our system of government works? I find progressives seriously delusional. Itís a living miracle that Manchin is senator from WVA.

Dude, itís like when you were spouting Hillary and Trump are the same. You just donít get it.

LOL I'm not sure I ever said HRC was the same as Trump.  She's awful in her own special way, but I still held my nose and voted for her.

Controlling the senate is a good talking point, but if this one dipshit is able to get the Biden constantly rollover on his climate agenda* or can kill others, like the child tax credit, do you really control it? 

And if his vote is so overwhelmingly for Biden's agenda, do you really think that change is his party affiliation does?  Give me a break man.

Manchin sucks, and can go kick rocks.  What he calls himself isn't going to change that for the better or the worse.

* I mean, we all know Biden is as much of a climate denier as the rest. Manchin's just a nice cover.

Yes you control it if you have a majority and in a tie the VP breaks it giving you the majority. Doesnít mean senate passes every bill you like. Heck you could have 55 senators and bills you prefer might not get passed. Would you then say Democrats donít control the senate?

You canít seriously tell me you donít realize that if Republicans had the majority in the senate things would be very different.

Essentially you are saying the Biden presidency is a failure because we canít pass some legislation you favor. The idea government is just about passing bills - and in particular bills you like- is preposterous.

Dude I donít think you want me to check the historical record on the inanities you said about Hillary.
