Deception in Voting Bill

From 3/26/2018 newsletter of Georgia Rural Urban Summit:
Deception in Voting bill. Common Cause calls for your help to defeat SB 403 as written: Oppose Senate Bill 403, the voting machines bill. We believe this bill is unethical, nontransparent, and is NOT a paper ballot bill as it’s being sold. These legislators need to hear from you:
Rep. Christian Coomer 404.656.5024
Speaker David Ralston 404.656.5020
Rep. John Meadows 404.656.5141
Rep. Jon Burns 404.656.5052
Rep. Jan Jones 404.656.5072

Tell them: 
I’m asking you to oppose SB 403 because it lacks strong audit language and the procurement process is under the power of the outgoing Secretary of State who is also a gubernatorial candidate. This is NOT a paper ballot bill and the state is on the verge of continuing to allow unverified voting for another two decades.

Mueller Investigation

MAR 28, DNC Message Guidance

New filings by the Special Counsel have revealed that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, were in regular contact with a business associate who they knew had ongoing ties to Russian intelligence – including the same Russian intelligence agency responsible for hacking the DNC and John Podesta’s emails.

The evidence pointing toward the Trump campaign knowingly and willingly colluding with Russia to win the presidential election continues to pile up. This revelation is one of the clearest and most direct links between the Trump campaign and the Russian intelligence group that carried out Putin’s orders to attack our elections in 2016.

And as expected, the White House and general GOP response to the increasing evidence of collusion is to attack Mueller’s credibility.

Reminder: Mueller is universally respected as an honest, independent and impartial broker, and his appointment was praised by leaders on both sides of the aisle.

It is time for Republicans to draw a line in the sand and make clear that any attempt by Trump to fire Mueller would cross a red line.

DACA Update

MAR 23, DNC Message Guidance

The president continues to falsely blame Democrats for the lack of progress on a deal for Dreamers, but the country will not forget that he was the one who decided to end DACA.  And every time a bipartisan deal to protect Dreamers was on the table, he shot it down.

President Obama created the DACA program because this country is the only home American Dreamers know. They contribute to our economy and their communities, pay taxes, and work as teachers, first responders, and service members.

Because of Trump and Republicans, American Dreamers are at risk of being forced back into the shadows, losing their jobs, businesses, scholarships, and communities.

Trump’s willingness to hold American Dreamers hostage to further his hateful agenda is not only against everything Democrats stand for, it runs counter to the values this country was founded on.

Democrats believe our diversity is our greatest strength.  We will always fight for hardworking families and a smart, sensible immigration system.

Democrats know that protecting these young immigrants strengthens our economy and families across the country.
