This is what obstruction looks like:

It's not the crime, it's the cover-up. Because the cover-up is exceptionally strong circumstantial evidence that the crime did actually occur.
Team Tillis can spin themselves into a knot trying to excuse his vote to take $80M from NC.
Bottomline: if it weren’t for the fact Tillis voted 3 times to back the emergency declaration, the funding wouldn’t have been on the table at all. #NCSEN #NCpol https://t.co/Alr6K8jVJk

This is one issue we simply cannot let slide, or fade away. Tillis owns that military cut, which stopped at least two schools from being built to replace ones that are falling apart.

Yeah, and this is the guy Republicans wanted to be in charge of redistricting. Hell no...

To call this "outrageous" would be a gross understatement. Even if she *did* know she wasn't supposed to vote but did so anyway, any jail time for such a harmless offense is too much. If she wasn't aware, there should be no criminal charges at all.
As you read this, keep remembering that the #UNC Board of Governors, which for some reason gave $2,500,000 of university money away to SCV Klansmen, was appointed by the #NCGOP-run #NCGA.#ncpol #SilentSham https://t.co/33HQNoe5R2

Again, there are no (and never were) any opponents in this lawsuit. It truly was a sham lawsuit, and so was the order that was issued to "solve" it. Grrr.

That's great news. Put Allison Riggs on this and they'll be writing legislation before Summer rolls around...
This is so crazy! 58% of people's genes need moderate fat intake vs 42% who need low. I wish I knew I was moderate sooner!! Totally worth the $189 if you can afford it
— HannahPekarek (@HannahPekarek) November 5, 2019
Yeah, I don't need to spend $189 to know I'm in the 58% majority. I feel marvelous, aside from that occasional dizziness and dull ache in my left arm...

There should be no uncontested seats in General Assembly races. That being said, I am also pleased by this. Hypocrisy? I think not. What is that thing about holding two different opinions, and your head not exploding? That's me.
Consider this survey question: “I feel like what happens in my life is mostly determined by powerful people.” Fully 61 percent of the “very conservative” respondents disagreed with this statement, while only 34 percent of the “very liberal” did. https://t.co/hcsOzkIbcQ #ncpol
— John Hood (@JohnHoodNC) December 23, 2019
Well, considering that over 50% of that 61% (yes, I just made that up) believe God or Jesus (or the Ghost?) are controlling literally everything that happens, I'm not surprised.
Virginia adopted expanded Medicaid effective 01/01/2019. Idaho will have expanded Medicaid effective 01/01/2020. The time has LONG SINCE come for NC to adopt expanded Medicaid. #NCGA #NCPOL #NCMedicaid https://t.co/Fe0c43lVFX

And this is why I support Roy Cooper's Veto of the Budget. It might have caused some trouble here and there, but lives are at stake. Republicans thrive on dividing the opposition, but it did not work in 2019. I'm proud of all our Democratic lawmakers for standing against the pressure.
Maria Gonzalez’s parents brought her to the United States without proper documentation when she was two years old. She has put her college studies on hold because she cannot afford the out-of-state tuition .@SpecNewsRDU #ncpol pic.twitter.com/GHBEEAIGzW

This also needs to be fixed. There is no excuse to charge this girl out-of-state tuition, when she's been living here for so long. Intentionally holding her back out of prejudice, or trying to profit off her status. I can see no other reason why this happens, but maybe somebody can find a third reason.

Okay, let's learn more about Jeff:
I had the pleasure of spending yesterday morning with Congressman Denver Riggleman, the folks in VA-5 have solid representation. If we had more like him, DC could solve a lot of problems — quick. If you ever have the opportunity to meet Denver Riggleman, take advantage of it. pic.twitter.com/9OwuWH0Hrb
— Jeff Carpenter (@KeepJCarpenter) April 28, 2019
Yes, Denver Riggleman is a real name, and a Congressman, but he's also a Bigfoot fetishist:
Riggleman is the co-author of a self-published 2006 book called Bigfoot Exterminators, Inc.: The Partially Cautionary, Mostly True Tale of Monster Hunt 2006, a (nonerotic) work about people who look for Bigfoot.
His interest in the Bigfoot subject led to a number of posts on social media that appear to be focused on Bigfoot’s genitalia.
Riggleman tells the Daily Progress, Charlottesville, Virginia’s daily newspaper, that the posts have nothing to do with erotica but are rather “a joke his military friends played on him.” Riggleman has, however, set his old social media accounts to private, so it’s no longer possible to fully investigate the context in which the posts arose. The Cook Political Report says, however, that whatever the joke was, it involved the existence of a Facebook author page for a book to be titled The Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him.
That's some next-level crazy shit right there...

I don't know if you'll be able to click that bottom right photo, but: Unless young people have started coloring their hair white (or blue), they are outnumbered by the Boomers about 4-1. I guess maybe if your definition of "young" is "barely alive," that might work.
On that admittedly ageist and somewhat petty note, here's your Onion:
