California tests populist vision of ‘direct democracy’

California’s great reformer, former Gov. Hiram Johnson, envisioned that “direct democracy” would be an effective curb on special interest influence. At the time, more than a century ago, the Southern Pacific Railroad dominated a corrupt state Legislature and other political venues. Johnson wanted voters empowered to circumvent such dominance via initiative (legislating by ballot measure), referendum (repealing laws passed by the Legislature) and recall (ousting politicians deemed ineffective or ...

South Korean Bill That Could Allow Third-Party Payment Methods on the App Store Gains Support Ahead of Vote

A bill that could require Apple and Google to allow third-party payment methods on their respective app stores in South Korea is gaining support ahead of a vote on the issue. The bill proposes an amendment to the existing Telecommunications Business Act, which would bar Apple, Google, and any other company that operates its own app distribution platform, from forcing developers to use a specific payment method. Apple requires that all apps on the App Store use its own payment method for in-ap...

Q&A: Shontel Brown on the Race for Ohio's 11th Congressional District

The special primary election to fill the vacant seat for Ohio’s 11th Congressional District, in Northeast Ohio, is Aug. 3. The district is reliably Democratic, the seat held for years by Marcia Fudge, and there are 13 candidates on the Democratic ballot. But the attention, energy and campaign contributions have coalesced around just two: former state Sen. Nina Turner (OH-25) and Cuyahoga County councilmember and county Democratic Party leader Shontel Brown.

Is the politics of crime and punishment now different than in our recent history?

The question in the title of this post is promoted by this recent Politico piece by Joshua Zeitz headlined "'Law and Order' has Worked for the GOP Before. This Crime Boom Might be Different." I recommend the piece in full, and here are a few excerpts: In the 1970s and 1980s, Republican candidates successfully used violent crime as an issue to attract white voters. Fused with concerns over the economy, busing and neighborhood integration, “law-and-order” politics dislodged millions of working- a...

Moses was a key architect of the civil rights movement’s campaign to enlist Southern Black workers and sharecroppers to register to vote, a campaign that eventually pressured Congress to pass the 1965 Voting Rights Act, a momentous victory which in the d...

U.S. Senate should strive for consensus, not partisanship

The U.S. Senate is on the verge of passing the largest budget in American history, $3.5 trillion dollars, with the votes of only Democratic senators. Among the provisions likely to be included are to: lower the eligibility age for Medicare while expanding its benefits, provide free community college tuition, extend higher Medicaid benefits in states that opted out of those higher levels under the Affordable Care Act (“ACA” or “Obamacare”) offer free pre-kindergarten and free school meals for al...

Three growing crises could affect Newsom recall

In many ways, the campaign to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom is evolving just as Newsom hoped it would. The polls indicate that recall sentiment is running well behind what would be needed to oust him from office. He enjoys solid support from his own Democratic Party, even though he won’t be listed as a Democrat on the Sept. 14 ballot, thanks to an error by his campaign. Newsom and the Legislature advanced the date of the election to take advantage of his current popular support and give his opponents...
