California wants new voting machines for next year. Most counties will have to spend to do it

With a year to go until the 2020 presidential primary, California counties are figuring out how to respond to a recent state order that says old voting machines that don’t meet security standards have to be replaced in time for the next election season. For most counties in California, the Feb. 27 order from California Secretary of State Alex Padilla figures to mean more spending. “While county officials have worked diligently to keep equipment up and running, our democracy faces increasingly so...

Democrat Nadler and Trump: from NY feud to Russia probe

When Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler opened a full-frontal investigative onslaught against President Donald Trump on Monday, it should have surprised no one: the two New Yorkers have been feuding for three decades. The Brooklyn native, at 71 -- one year younger than his White House nemesis -- went into battle in the 1980s against Trump's New York real estate projects as a state assemblyman, and since then the two have never made up. In January, when he became chairman of the powerful Judic...

[ … ] As an aside, enjoying the shock value of his statement, he tells me that it’s legal to buy and sell small tanks in South Carolina, too. Shades of Fort Sumter, I think. If it’s man-buns versus shaggy beards, does the side with the WWI-era tanks win? I’m not sure what she’s insinuating from the way that question w...
