Speed cameras work, may help reduce unnecessary police encounters

Back in mid-May, in the throes of an ongoing coronavirus pandemic, a curious yellow robotic dog swept across social media. Deployed by the Singaporean government in the island nation’s public spaces, the camera-mounted robotic dog was tasked with gently nudging park patrons to respect social distancing guidance with kind verbal reminders. The reaction was swift and universally derisive—prompting comparisons to the dystopian science fiction series “Black Mirror.” But did the friendly robotic dog ...

Justices reference ‘Hamilton,’ ‘Veep’ in Electoral College decision

By MARK SHERMAN | Associated Press WASHINGTON — In a decision flavored with references to “Hamilton” and “Veep,” the Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that states can require presidential electors to back their states’ popular vote winner in the Electoral College.

Opinion analysis: Court upholds “faithless elector” laws

This morning the Supreme Court unanimously rejected two challenges to the constitutionality of so-called “faithless elector” laws, which penalize or remove presidential electors who fail to vote for the candidate they have pledged to support.

The Supreme Court heard arguments in May in two different disputes involving states’ efforts to enforce their faithless elector laws during the 2016 presidential election proce...

‘Reject the lies of history’: Washington reckons with tributes to racist past

The US capital is adorned with monuments to American history, but as schools change names and statues are toppled, legacies are under scrutiny Gordon J Davis’s first encounter with the political writings of Woodrow Wilson was as a student at Columbia University. “I’m reading this stuff and saying: ‘That’s a great man,’ and mentioned it to my father who said: ‘Well, he wasn’t such a great man to us,’” recalls the 78-year-old Davis, who is a senior lawyer in New York. “He didn’t say much more abou...

A Journalist Shield Law for the Provinces

This piece is based on my Parkland Institute report entitled, “Alberta’s Inadequate Legal Protection of Whistleblowers, Journalist Sources and Others Who Speak Out in the Public Interest.” The report is expected to be published online later this year. A person who wants to blow the whistle on wrongdoing in our society has a lot to worry about. On the legal front, they may lose their job or be sued. Whistleblower protections in Canada, which extend only the public sector employment, are poor. Mor...

Tax refunds totaling $1.5+ billion await filers who didn't submit 2016 returns, but time is running out

I know you're tired of taxes continuing into July. I know you just want to be done with your filings and the Internal Revenue Service and move on to other things. But I also know that most of you, especially if you're facing coronavirus-related financial difficulties, don't want to just hand over money, possible thousands of dollars to Uncle Sam. You'll do just that if you were due a tax refund on your 2016 taxes and didn't file for it during the 2017 tax season. That's the situation for an est...

DC Poll Worker: Primaries Show Urgent Need for Election Fixes Before November

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. As an election lawyer who has also served as a poll worker many times, I know election administrators have difficult jobs and often get less credit than they deserve. So I don’t say this lightly: if government officials run the November general election the way many have run recent primaries, the combination of massive voter turnout and a global pandemic will strain the mechanics of our democracy to the breaking point. ...

Trump demands Supreme Court kill Affordable Care Act, aka 'Obamacare'

Late Thursday night, amid a coronavirus pandemic that has now killed over 120,000 Americans, Donald Trump's administration made new moves to take away healthcare from working Americans.

A Major GOP Nightmare Moves a Step Closer to Reality

Legislation to make the District of Columbia a state is poised to pass the House on Friday, a major advance from the last time the measure came before Congress 27 years ago and 40 percent of Democrats joined with all but one Republican to defeat D.C. statehood. After decades of benign neglect, the movement to make D.C. the 51st state has gained new life with Black Lives Matter and D.C.

The 1968 riots and what Trump could learn from LBJ

The demonstrations that have spread across the country since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on 25 May unavoidably invite comparisons with the massive riots that occurred in more than one hundred cities after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on 4 April 1968. The most serious disturbances broke out in Washington, DC. They began a short time after King’s death, resumed with ferocious strength the next day, and continued with gradually diminishing intensity for nearly two weeks....
