What about Rise of MTG? I thought we agreed that it was going to be a star wars related name.


I forgot about that one.

Rise of MTG it is. It's an all right name.

In the meantime...we actually have a state legislative race to look at tonight....the GOP Byprimary for Arkansas SD-7(Springdale). This would've been completely irrelevant if not for the fact that Jim Bob Duggar is running for it.

#MeToo Man of the Year

SAN FRANCISCO — A half dozen women are suing Tesla alleging the electric vehicle company fostered a culture of sexual harassment at its Fremont, Calif., plant and other facilities, where female employees say they were subjected to lewd comments and catcalling, physically intimate touching and discrimination.

In six separate suits filed Tuesday, women who worked in factory or service center jobs say their male co-workers frequently referenced their bodies and clothing, and some women allege they were moved from their work stations after reporting the behavior.
"There will come a day when [the disgraced, defeated former president] is gone, but your dishonor will remain." -- Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) | "...the Big Lie is less of a literal belief...and more a myth embraced because it speaks to their deeper belief: That they're entitled to rule, no matter what. They don't believe the 2020 election was a "fraud" because of any actual evidence...they just think that people who voted for President Joe Biden shouldn't have a right to vote in the first place...Attempting to overthrow democracy was their desire all along."

His oldest son was the one who got in trouble.

No, that was his son. Normally, I wouldn't care about these people, but the fact that one's running for office and could still win despite all that is worth taking notice.

Okay. You know since Qanon wants to takedown child trafficking and people who do that stuff to children you think they would be demanding that his son be destroyed.

Is there a master list of all prominent politicians/elected officials that have been accused of/involved with this sort of thing? My memory says that they're mostly southern Republicans.

Of the top of my head:

Mark Foley (R-FL)
Matt Gaetz (R-FL)
Anthony Weiner (D-NY)
Donald Lukens (R-OH)
Roy Moore (R-AL, candidate)

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Yep. Hastert would technically give Republicans the disadvantage, but I omitted him since they were before his Congressional tenure.

Of course that would be the one thing both parties can agree on.

Well, we don't know for sure who all was with him as of yet. I doubt we ever will tbh. I'm just going by what I can gather. I mean sure, there was Clinton in all likelihood, but the discussion was more Congressional in nature.

There is one in Connecticut as well along with Iowa.

In Iowa it’s senate district one and in Connecticut it’s state house district one sixteen.

We probably know why already. Considering the committee has Meadows texts already, I suspect he's afraid that what those texts could (and will) produce is at the very least, evidence that shows his involvement at best. At worst? Well, let's just say some laws may have been broken...

Anyway, "Need to end this call. I don't think this will be productive for much longer: that was a text sent from an unnamed Georgia Official as the Committee reads more texts. This was during Trump's call to Georgia's Secretary of State. There are other texts from unknown senders too but those names will be released within the coming days or weeks. So far, they apparently have identified only House members that sent said messages to Meadows.
