Mueller Friday funtime is upon us folks.

Friday's nearly always deliver and with all the midterms stuff making everything go quiet I suspect fireworks are going to be going off like the 4th of July.

You missed vote counting still going on,
Although Broward County election officials said they uploaded their recount results two minutes past Florida’s 3 p.m. deadline so the state is not using the results. Instead they’re using the first unofficial results that were submitted on Saturday

That's handy for the GOP

AP are saying CA 45 has been won by the Dems, Katie Porter beating Mimi Walters, in was has been a GOP safeseat.

NY times are reporting that since the tax cuts were passed, the 1,000 largest public companies have actually reduced employment, on balance. They have announced the elimination of nearly 140,000 jobs, which is almost double the 73,000 jobs they say they have created in that time

Manafort sentencing delayed 10 days. So they're about to indict someone he's sold out and don't want to tip them off.
Manafort was in the trump tower meeting, as was Kushner and trump jr.

Just watched The Circus, it was mentioned that the next two years will get crazier and the gop shrinks and goes more extreme


Looking at the votes...I was interested to see that there are seven states that have less congressmen than senators! These are called 'at large' districts and cover the whole state. biggrin

It's because of the way the whole thing was set up. Every state gets 2 senators, regardless of size. At the time it was set up the population was tiny compared to today and they wanted everyone to have a voice. So California has the same number of senators as Rhode Island. Congressional districts are population based.

It seems a bit bonkers but I guess it prevents the bigger states from dominating everything.

That $200,000 membership of Mar-a-Lago looks worth it for some

Lana Marks as ambassador to South Africa is the 4th Mar-a-lago member to be offered positions
Robin Bernstein, a founding member of Mar-a-Lago: Ambassador to the Dominican Republic.
Patrick Park: Appointed ambassador to Austria but declined the honor.
Brian Burns: Appointed ambassador to Ireland but said no for health reasons.

just popped up on the feed...

Judge Timothy J. Kelly has just made an official ruling in the CNN v. White House case after journalist Jim Acosta had his press pass taken from him. Kelly has ruled in CNN’s favor, granting a temporary restraining order, meaning that Acosta will, for now, get his access back.

I knew about the senator rule, but not the 'at large' thing. A few have had congressmen taken of them, like Vermont. biggrin
less people than some cities
It's pretty cool something like Alaska has one one rep. biggrin
