Mike Bloomberg Referred To Transgender People As “It” And “Some Guy Wearing A Dress” As Recently As Last Year

> Why have we stopped talking about warren in favor of Bloomberg?

Because her sun is setting whilst Bloomberg’s rises. Warren is essentially just Bernie-lite. Now that Bernie has emerged as the preeminent progressive (and clear frontrunner), her campaign is superfluous.

Bloomberg, on the other hand, has risen to 2nd place in recent polling. Biden’s future in the race grows shakier. In the event Biden fails to rack up some W’s in the near future, he may begin to hemorrhage support, and that support may go to Bloomberg. Bloomberg, like it or not, has a realistic path to the nomination. A brokered convention is not out of the question, and in that scenario, you can bet your ass the DNC prefers Bloomberg to Sanders.

Buttigieg and super PAC improperly coordinated on Nevada ads, watchdog group says

Westlake Legal Group 52XftQnlUE_lzKy5T30glmkYme4-khIAKlrrvF7W3zw Buttigieg and super PAC improperly coordinated on Nevada ads, watchdog group says r/politics

Why aren’t you posting the rest of the article? You’re already part of the way there.

Independent allies of candidates can’t spend money “in cooperation, consultation or concert with, or at the request or suggestion of” a candidate, under federal rules.

But candidates and the independent super PACs that support them have increasingly found ways to work together without breaking laws barring outright coordination.

One common method is to signal strategies to each other using public means of communication, such as speeches, interviews, social media, news articles, news releases or a campaign website.

It’s bold, but legal: How campaigns and their super PAC backers work together

Still, the complaint argues that this particular instance crossed the line.

“This is different from what we’ve seen before, because the tweeted request is so obvious, including significant details about content, timing, location and duration of the ads that the Buttigieg campaign was seeking,” said Brendan Fischer, who directs the federal regulatory work of the Campaign Legal Center, which advocates for greater restrictions on the role of money in politics.

The Buttigieg campaign did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

Joseph E. Sandler, an attorney for VoteVets, said in a statement that the group “has conducted all of its activities in full compliance with federal campaign finance laws and regulations.”

“Acting independently — without any discussion or consultation with the campaign, devising its own messages and selecting its own audiences — VoteVets created an advertisement, to be run in Nevada, supporting Mayor Buttigieg,” Sandler’s statement read.

Sandler added that Halle’s tweet was a public statement and “did not influence in any way VoteVets’ decision to run the advertisement, or the timing, content or targeting of the advertisement.” Nevada was the next state in the Democratic primary process and a natural place for the group to run its ads, he said.

It is highly unlikely that there will be any formal action on the complaint before the November election. The FEC typically takes more than two years to reach a conclusion on legal complaints.

And the FEC currently lacks a voting quorum, so the panel would not be able to take a formal vote until it had at least four commissioners.

“The FEC’s failure to enforce its own rules in the decades since Citizens United and the recent lack of quorum has encouraged super PACs and campaigns to work together. But this does cross the line,” Fischer said.

I’m Weston Wamp, I grew up around Congress, nearly beat my incumbent Congressman in my 20s and just made a podcast about how DC became the Swamp. AMA.

Westlake Legal Group ApnmzRMsWMwcwZEdCty1Y_tyr3s4SOtBYjGAQYQEBjQ I’m Weston Wamp, I grew up around Congress, nearly beat my incumbent Congressman in my 20s and just made a podcast about how DC became the Swamp. AMA. r/politics

Hey Reddit…

My name is Weston Wamp. I’m a millennial conservative raising three kids in Tennessee. I’m a former early stage investor who came within a percentage point of beating my incumbent Congressman when I was 27, and I’m the son of Zach Wamp, an 8-term Tennessee Congressman. I’m now working for the country’s top political reform group, Issue One, and we made a podcast telling stories about how DC became the Swamp, which is different than you may think — both parties are equally responsible for breaking our political system, and both parties are responsible for bringing solutions to the table to fix it.

You can listen to Swamp Stories here: https://www.swampstories.org/, or on Apple or Spotify. AMA.

‘You Are Not Going to Buy This Election,’ Sanders Tells Bloomberg at Rally of 17,000 in Washington

Westlake Legal Group RX61yJMvqsbFx_0mxi4A8P0QE2259BUSNmMrzEvVPWs 'You Are Not Going to Buy This Election,' Sanders Tells Bloomberg at Rally of 17,000 in Washington r/politics

Climate change?

I think Bloomberg’s money is illustrative of a democratic process that is corrupted by money. But I don’t think his record is bad on climate, certainly not everything “Progressives have been fighting against for decades.” The Beyond Coal campaign was shockingly effective. And this is arguably the most important issue facing the planet.

He’s also not bad on guns.

He’s terrible on economic issue, which are the issues most important to me, personally. Hasn’t traditionally supported increases in minimum wage, hasn’t been a friend to unions (not bad for a Republican mayor, but that’s a low bar). My biggest fear with him is that he’d appoint all his financial industry buddies to cabinet seats and other important political positions, whereas Warren or Sanders would make excellent appointments that would actually regulate the various industries. To a lesser extent, I’m worried about his judicial appointments, too. This all makes me more skeptical of Bloomberg than I’d be, say, if he was running for Senate.

I agree with your general point, that he presents a better contrast and he pulls support from Biden, splitting that “lane.” But I think it’s wildly overstating the case to say he’s against every piece and part of the Democratic Party.
