Tuesday Twitter roundup

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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:

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:

I've always wanted to post that, because it's both funny and true.
