Fair housing groups: Redfin ‘redlines’ minority communities

By Gene Johnson | The Associated Press Several fair housing organizations accused Redfin of systematic racial discrimination in a lawsuit Thursday, saying the online real estate broker offers fewer services to homebuyers and sellers in minority communities — a type of digital redlining that has depressed home values and exacerbated historic injustice in the housing market. In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle, the organizations said that during a two-year investigation they doc...

Alexander: Clayton Kershaw is a future Hall of Famer … and now a champion

The photo should be iconic, if it isn’t already: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts embracing pitcher Clayton Kershaw, moments after both men unloaded persistent, nagging monkeys off their backs with a World Series championship. Their narratives have been consistent, at least, if consistently unfair or knee-jerk or nuance-free. Kershaw’s, loudly and frequently repeated, was that he couldn’t win in the postseason, gave up too many home runs, was a great regular-season pitcher, but … No. No more buts. A...

MIAMI—On Tuesday afternoon, Gerard Legagneur walked right past the mailbox near the front of Miami Beach city hall, one of 33 early-voting and mail-in ballot drop sites in Miami-Dade, the most populous county in Florida.Always a hotly-contested slice of political turf, the county has seen Republicans gain ground on Democrats' lead in the number of early ballots cast for the Nov. 3 presidential election in recent days. Legagneur, a Biden-Harris voter, wanted in on the action.A stocky 44-year-...

Push is on in Wisconsin to return outstanding ballots

By Scott Bauer | Associated Press MADISON, Wis. — Democrats and Republicans in the battleground state of Wisconsin were pushing Tuesday to get 320,000 outstanding absentee ballots returned by the close of polls on Election Day after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to extend the deadline to receive and count ballots, as Democrats had wanted. “This is an all-hands-on-deck final push,” said Ben Wikler, who chairs the Wisconsin Democratic Party, which has been advocating absentee voting more aggressi...

Wisconsinites Scramble To Get Votes In Early Following Supreme Court Ruling

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democrats and Republicans in the battleground state of Wisconsin were pushing Tuesday to get 320,000 outstanding absentee ballots returned by the close of polls on Election Day after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to extend the deadline to receive and count ballots, as Democrats had wanted. “This is an all-hands-on-deck final push,” said Ben Wikler, who chairs the Wisconsin Democratic Party, which has been advocating absentee voting more aggressively than Republicans.

Alexander: Roz Wyman is still the Dodgers’ No. 1 fan

If this were a normal World Series – like anything in 2020 is normal, right? – Roz Wyman would be at Dodger Stadium for Tuesday night’s Game 6 in her field level seat, on the third base side of home plate and adjacent to where the umpires enter the field. It is not in The Ravine, of course. The Dodgers have made Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, their second home during this neutral-site postseason, and that is where they will attempt to win the World Series and end 32 years of waiting. But ...

Whicker: Dodgers derailed by a gust of craziness in an ‘un-perfect storm’

Because baseball turned into pinball, we’re thinking more about Mookie Wilson than Mookie Betts. Because Chris Taylor took a peek at the action and looked away from the baseball, Clayton Kershaw is pitching to tilt a world Series on Sunday, not to win it. Because Will Smith decided to maneuver a baseball before he actually caught it, Kenley Jansen remains associated with bumps in the night instead of strike-three handshakes. None of that fully explains the runaway train of a Game 4 on Saturday t...

Why Is Socialism Becoming Less Scary?

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  In her extraordinary new documentary film, “The Big Scary ‘S’ Word,” director Yael Bridge examines the surprising rebirth of American socialism. “Socialism is as American as apple pie,” notes one of the film’s interviewees, Harvard University philosopher and activist Cornel West. That statement becomes the film’s theme.  Of course, many would dispute West’s statement. “America will never be a socialist country,” P...

Trump got 81% of the evangelical vote in 2016. Meet the conservatives who are working to vote him out.

81% of white evangelical Christians voted for President Donald Trump in 2016, but his support has been dropping in recent months.  Pastor Doug Pagitt of Minneapolis is going on a bus tour across the country to convince fellow Christians not to vote for the president.  Pagitt has gathered the support of more than 1,600 faith leaders to endorse Joe Biden with him.

With DMVs Closed And Backlogged, People Who Want to Vote Are Struggling Even To Register

A recent law school grad who also has worked on political campaigns, she didn’t expect to have much trouble figuring out how to vote in Maryland, the state she had grown up in and moved back to over the summer after finishing school in California. Yet the unique challenges presented by the pandemic frustrated her, just as they have frustrated voters across the country as the...

Voting in person comes with a fairly low coronavirus risk, experts say. Here's how to stay safe at the polls.

Cheryl Greenberg takes a photo of friends during early voting in Florida, October 7, 2020. John Raoux/AP A majority of Americans plan to vote in person during the November election. The risk of contracting the coronavirus while voting in person is about the same as when ordering takeout, according to one epidemiologist. You can lower your risk further by taking precautions like bringing sanitizing equipment and voting when lines are shorter.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stor...

Harley-Davidson should keep making e-motorcycles

Harley-Davidson should continue to make electric motorcycles. That’s my big takeaway after taking home the company’s LiveWire for three weeks. I’d ridden it on a closed course in 2019, but that wasn’t enough absorb the finer qualities of the 105 horsepower machine. After nearly a month and a thousand miles on the LiveWire, I’d venture to say it could be the most innovative motorcycle Harley-Davidson has ever produced. That doesn’t mean perfect (particularly on the pricing). But with declining sa...

Alexander: Dodgers’ bullpen (shudder) makes news again

So maybe it’s not all Kenley Jansen’s fault after all. Blake Treinen appeared to be the next man up. Jansen’s problems with velocity and command had moved him out of the ninth-inning role, though Manager Dave Roberts declined to ever come right out and say so. Treinen, who had closed games before (38 saves, when healthy, for Oakland in 2018), seemed to be the first alternate, at least. The Dodgers might be auditioning a second alternate, because things exploded in the ninth inning in Game 1 of t...

Chief: No reason to fire Wisconsin officer who killed teen

The police chief of a Milwaukee suburb that has seen protests and unrest since an officer was cleared of criminal wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of a Black teenager in February said Monday that he sees no reason why the officer should be fired. Joseph Mensah, who is also Black, fatally shot 17-year-old Alvin Cole on Feb. 2 outside the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.
