I am Joe Spaulding, grassroots strategist. You can watch me design the petition campaign that ended gerrymandering in Michigan in the documentary Slay the Dragon in theaters March 13, AMA.

Westlake Legal Group ex0EMtiEx98uiC282ArHvnzO0tNETmh-e-aURQFvzQk I am Joe Spaulding, grassroots strategist. You can watch me design the petition campaign that ended gerrymandering in Michigan in the documentary Slay the Dragon in theaters March 13, AMA. r/politics

In the Spring of 2017, I was asked by my old college classmate (at this college ) Katie Fahey if I could design a field program that could collect over 400,000 signatures to end gerrymandering in Michigan, and do it by leveraging 5,000 Michiganders who came together in response to a Facebook post she had made right after the 2016 election saying:

I’d like to take on gerrymandering in Michigan, if you’re interested in doing this as well, please let me know 🙂

The program Katie entrusted me to build ended up breaking records by delivering over 440,000 signatures in 110 days with a validity rate of 86% and with 99.96% of the signatures accounted for in our custom database. All with just the help of volunteers. Katie and other staff we brought on board after handing in our petitions to the state leveraged this into over $16 million in donations, making us the biggest campaign in the state in 2018. We went from expecting DeVos backed opposition to outspend us at least 4-to-1 to outspending them almost 5-to-1, and winning with more than 60% of the vote.

We developed some very effective and innovative strategies and tactics for leveraging a decentralized army of mostly recently retired women that made up the majority of our volunteers. Using Facebook as a real-time wiki and continual training reinforcement, integrating training into the volunteer ladder, and deploying incentives like a head-shaving challenge I pseudo-regretted making based on mitigating projected signature return decay. We essentially used social media to weaponize hope and fun to defend our basic democratic institutions and values.


While we were running our campaign, we were followed by a camera crew from Ark Media, who in turn produced a documentary titled Slay the Dragon. It is being distributed by Participant Media and Magnolia Films, who also distributed the RBG documentary and post-apocalyptic French parkour movie District B-13. It will be in theaters everywhere on March 13.

Looking back now, I am thrilled to have been such a key part early on, and to have a recorded history of it but my biggest desire is to get our tactics, strategy, and way of looking at data into the hands of activists in other states who can use them to defend the building blocks of democracy closest to them!

With that, I will start answering questions at 4 P.M.

Ask me anything!

Bernie Sanders: We need scientists, not politicians, in charge of the coronavirus response | Let scientists and health professionals take charge. Stop spreading lies and focus on minimizing the risk and addressing health care needs.

Westlake Legal Group r0kwg_Ul8C_qFfcZ9VUtVcWDyoWVWTM42qqnGt9tchg Bernie Sanders: We need scientists, not politicians, in charge of the coronavirus response | Let scientists and health professionals take charge. Stop spreading lies and focus on minimizing the risk and addressing health care needs. r/politics

It’s crazy how many people are downvoting ANY Bernie Sanders article now, even one with a message most Democrats, if not most rational people, would agree with. I agree there was a strong bias on this sub before for Bernie, but either a lot of supporters jumped ship and joined the Biden bandwagon, or there has been a flood of Biden supporters and bad actors onto this sub.

Also for the last few days the amount of people online at any given time has been 3X normal. You can attribute some of this to Super Tuesday, but you really don’t see the increase upvotes and comments to go with it. There also hasn’t been a major increase in new posts.

What there has been is a big increase in how heavily downvoted posts related to Bernie are, even immediately after posting. Just sort by NEW and see the ratio on a post that’s a minute old. Either way, there’s been a strong bias against Sanders since the middle of Super Tuesday and it’s only been growing.

We reported on states trying to ban people from getting abortions because a Down syndrome diagnosis. Ask us anything.

Westlake Legal Group F2V9Hm55ESaoFKOtUWat1xTzCBbMQFuKHo56cUxxOTM We reported on states trying to ban people from getting abortions because a Down syndrome diagnosis. Ask us anything. r/politics

We’re Dan Ming, Carter Sherman, and Jen Villavicencio, two VICE News journalists and an abortion provider. Since 2013, eight states have enacted bills to ban abortion if someone wants one because of a genetic anomaly like Down syndrome. Court challenges have paralyzed all but one of those bills, but there’s no sign that they’ll go away anytime soon: Of the eight bans, four were passed in 2019 alone.

Supporters of the bills say they protect people with disabilities from discrimination, some even compare the rates of Down syndrome-related terminations to eugenics. But critics argue that regulating a woman’s reasons for getting an abortion is a slippery slope. The anti-abortion movement simply wants a new way to limit access to the procedure, these critics say, and they’re hijacking the charged issue of disability rights in order to do it.

Watch our story “How Down Syndrome Became a New Front in the Abortion Wars” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcqsyiqVsXo. And find us on Twitter at @DanMing, @Carter_Sherman, and @VillaviMD. (Plus, if you want to ask questions about the big abortion case in front of the Supreme Court this week, we can answer those too.)

Megathread: Elizabeth Warren to Suspend Presidential Campaign

Westlake Legal Group Nivvcvt-Lf5H8X9g4vxD4tsTsVjacnb-4EaV1yVily8 Megathread: Elizabeth Warren to Suspend Presidential Campaign r/politics

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts plans to drop out of the presidential race on Thursday and will inform her staff of her plans later this morning, according to a person close to her, ending a run defined by an avalanche of policy plans that aimed to pull the Democratic Party to the left and appealed to enough voters to make her briefly a front-runner last fall, but that proved unable to translate excitement from elite progressives into backing from the party’s more working-class and diverse base.

‘Give Us an Hour on MSNBC’: Sanders Says He Would Love to Debate Medicare for All vs. For-Profit System With Joe Biden

Westlake Legal Group JmEhWnvjsBFq9V0nmgSZW_TCnfdVRSqPz7QebhMNqwc 'Give Us an Hour on MSNBC': Sanders Says He Would Love to Debate Medicare for All vs. For-Profit System With Joe Biden r/politics

Sanders has had many chances to make the same arguments over and over and over and over. We have heard him. Many times.

He has zero interest in what moderates want. He has zero ability in not only expanding his base, but actually building one.

Turns out, much of his 2016 support was to protest hillary. In 2020, huge increase in turnout showed up to stop him.

We have heard enough from Bernie.

We dont think there are nearly the number of electors needed to get him anywhere near 270.

Please Bernie, for the good of the party, endorse biden.
