    This. Politicians pretend to be supportive, call for investigations, and then wait for the next news cycle because they are concerned about their own political future. The need for (real) investigations is a no-brainer, all murder victims deserve that.

    This is just really, really strange….

    Revealed: conservative group fighting to restrict voting tied to powerful dark money network

    A powerful new conservative organization fighting to restrict voting in the 2020 presidential election is really just a rebranded group that is part of a dark money network already helping Donald Trump’s unprecedented effort to remake the US federal judiciary, the Guardian and OpenSecrets reveal.

    The organization, which calls itself the Honest Elections Project, seemed to emerge out of nowhere a few months ago and started stoking fears about voter fraud. Backed by a dark money group funded by rightwing stalwarts like the Koch brothers and Betsy DeVos’ family, the Honest Elections Project is part of the network that pushed the US supreme court picks Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, and is quickly becoming a juggernaut in the escalating fight over voting rights.

    The project announced it was spending $250,000 in advertisements in April, warning against voting by mail and accusing Democrats of cheating. It facilitated letters to election officials in Colorado, Florida and Michigan, using misleading data to accuse jurisdictions of having bloated voter rolls and threatening legal action.

    Calling voter suppression a “myth”, it has also been extremely active in the courts, filing briefs in favor of voting restrictions in Nevada, Virginia, Texas, Wisconsin and Minnesota, among other places, at times represented by lawyers from the same firm that represents Trump. By having a hand in both voting litigation and the judges on the federal bench, this network could create a system where conservative donors have an avenue to both oppose voting rights and appoint judges to back that effort.

    This is sorta deep, but makes sense:

    During a recent session conducted over Zoom, my therapist told me I was “glowing.” In the middle of a pandemic.

    I struggled to explain why until she prodded, “No crazy experiences with white people this month?”

    “Not that I can immediately recall,” I replied.

    That’s when it became clear: I’m doing better these days because staying home alone and practicing social distancing has meant I’m avoiding many of the racist encounters that used to plague my daily life.
    All of this adds up. Quarantine has been protecting me not only from the coronavirus, but also from white people.
    These months at home alone, surprisingly happy, have both revealed to me how much I was suffering and motivated me to create a life with more dignity and peace.

    Call it social distancing from racism.
