It’s not that complicated. A judge has confirmed what we’ve known for some time—that federal prosecutors under then-Attorney Alex Acosta violated survivors’ rights when giving a serial sexual abuser “the deal of a lifetime.” He never should have been confirmed as Labor Secretary.

This week Virginia has the chance to be the 38th and final state needed to ratify the ERA. It’s far past time for us to show women around the world that we stand for their rights—and how fitting that it could be this VA legislature with a record number of women that gets it done!

Rainy Sunday so made soup for Anne and me. Check this vintage crock pot—at least 35 years old. American technology rocks!

Thank goodness Europe is committed to diplomacy and peace. US abandonment of Iran deal was idiotic and driven by Trump’s envy of Obama. The professionals—Secretary Mattis, General Dunford—urged Trump to stay in.

-Removing lead from military housing -Making overseas bases safer -Upgrading hospitals that treat wounded troops These are the types of projects military construction funding is supposed to pay for when it isn’t stolen to build a wall that won’t make us safer.

A year ago this week, 17 families in Parkland experienced the worst day of their lives. We are holding them in our prayers and we also must honor them by taking action—commonsense gun reform can prevent more worst days from becoming reality if we stand up to say enough is enough.

Lieutenant Governor Fairfax should resign. The allegations against him detail atrocious crimes, and he can no longer effectively serve the Commonwealth. We cannot ever ignore or tolerate sexual assault.

One of the many reasons why we need to stop all US support for Saudi Arabia’s intervention in Yemen.

I no longer believe Governor Northam can effectively serve as Governor of Virginia. The events of the past 24 hours have inflicted immense pain and irrevocably broken the trust Virginians must have in their leaders. He should step down and allow the Commonwealth to begin healing.

My End Shutdowns Act does exactly what it says: ends shutdowns. We cannot keep putting our federal workers and the American public through this!

This should be obvious: Women deserve equal pay! Yet they still only make 80 cents to every dollar paid to men, and the disparity is even worse for women of color. Today , and I are re-introducing the Paycheck Fairness Act to try to close that gap.

On , we remember the millions killed, including 6 million Jews. Not just to honor them, but also to ensure that atrocities in our history are never repeated. These crimes against humanity are unspeakable—but speak of them we must, in order to learn from them.

Make no mistake, federal employees standing strong—especially our air safety professionals—was key to ending the shutdown. We owe an apology and thanks to all who suffered through the . And to think he said he was “proud” to do it! You can’t close the USA.

Hey David - Congress passed our bill to pay federal employees back and I’ve introduced one to do the same for federal contractors.

Millions of Americans can breathe again. Like them, I'm relieved. But both parties must now work to reach a long-term compromise—and ensure no one can ever again hold public servants hostage by using a government shutdown as a negotiating tactic. Never. Again.

Why is our country treating people like this? Oh, right — because the president can’t get his way.

Today is the second missed paycheck for hundreds of thousands of federal employees. There’s no quippy tweet that can address this. We’re facing a mind-boggling humanitarian disaster, and it’s entirely man-made.

I just voted to end the shutdown and provide relief to millions of Americans. Deeply disappointed more of my Republican colleagues didn’t support reopening government as we negotiate a compromise. We *must* stay in session this weekend so both parties can work on a path forward.
