Massive increase in the number of journalists writing about mass incarceration is mostly a great thing. But one of the costs: stories by people who think history began when they started paying attention.

Far-right fringe groups are women of color who serve as election officials. Latest targets include Brenda Snipes & Susan Bucher. We are calling on law enforcement and tech to do more to stop this.

Nancy Pelosi has been an effective national leader, an architect of the recent midterm success and a great partner in the fight against gerrymandering. She’s been successful-that’s why she’s a target of the right wing. She should be the next Speaker of the House.

So confused by some Dems. presided over the largest Dem victory since Watergate, with the most diversity ever, incl the most women, and you’re going to dump the woman? The GOP nightmare is Speaker Pelosi who’ll run circles around Trump/GOP. Pls don’t blow it, Dems.

Democrats should be wary of throwing away one of the most disciplined speakers in recent memory. Pick a speaker who is over their head and the House turns into a shit storm fast. One more thing: Republicans ran against Pelosi this year and had their worst loss since Watergate.
