Leslie McCrae Doweless Jr. Is a person of interest in an alleged absentee ballot operation in North Carolina’s 9th district. Dowelless is a political operative and was working on the campaign of Republican Mark Harris, who won district from Democrat Dan McCready by just over 900 votes in the election. After the election, the state board of elections refused to certify the election results. Doweless is alleged to have payed people to pick up vote-by-mail ballots and register voters. Harris won 61% of the mail in vote while only 19% of those voters were registered Republicans. Doweless is also accused of tampering with the investigations. It is not confirmed the Harris knew about Doweless’ scheme.How should future corruption be prevented in the future? . . . #senate #houseofrepresentatives #congress #corruption #campaignfinancereform #fixthesystem #civicpolitics #election #governmentcorruption #anticorruption #voterregistration #votingmatters #markharris #northcarolina #charlottenc #election2020 #electioncommission #houseofreps #endcorruption #stopcorruption #corrupt #corrupted #conspiracytheory at Chicago, Illinois

“We must use our lives to make the world a better place to live, not just to acquire things.” -Dolores Huerta ✨Last Friday, I was humbled to meet a legend at @evolveher ...at 88 years old she is still continuing to use her voice to support women that are breaking glass ceilings. I’m still stunned by her light ✨It was also amazing to have matching jackets ☺️Thank you @doloreshuerta1930 for being you. I can only pray to have her strength at 80+ years. #womensupportingwomen #votingmatters at evolveHer

Announced and unannounced Dem candidates. Educate yourself on each candidate. Bernie Sanders has to decide whether he is independent or Democrat.🤦🏽‍♀️ #votingmatters #staywoke #votedemocrat

It might be President's Day, but POLITICS 👏 ARE 👏 LOCAL! 📣 Hey everyone! Did you miss out on my #IGLive last night with this guy right here - #NYCPublicAdvocate candidate & local @nyccouncil member @rlespinal? If you did, don't freak out - it'll be in my stories until 7pm tonight (but do hurry over!). Some major highlights: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐ he ran for state office (and won) at age 26!!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐ the intersection of nightlife & racism ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐ what the heck the #NYCPublicAdvocate is (it's kind of a HUGE deal) & why he's running for it ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐ how to get involved in your community even if you're working 9-5 (step 1: vote on 2/26) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐ the subway & bus crisis. there was a lot to say. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐ the ungodly low number of women in @nyccouncil - you'll be shocked 🤯 Thank you all for your questions before & during the Live. We loved engaging with you & think you may feel some residual empowerment too. (I'd say our love for this city & advocacy is pretty contagious!) Make sure you stay tuned because we do have something else cooking up for my followers... 😏 TAG A FRIEND BELOW because we should be an army of people who pay attention & vote - and it starts with #awareness!! 🗽 at Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

Repost from @th3flowergarden using @RepostRegramApp - Note: @marcelmcclinton reached out to clarify that he isn't a trump supporter nor does he support the building the wall. (if he's a trump supporter, I was unaware in the time that this post was uploaded) Marcel McClinton, who will officially launch his campaign at his high school later this month, is running for a council at-large position, hoping to unseat council member Michael Kubosh. . A former campaign manager for Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) is part of McClinton's team, according to Fox 26. The 17-year-old will turn 18 in July, in time for the filing deadline for his campaign. . McClinton was teaching Sunday school in 2016 during a West Houston shooting that killed one person and injured others, he told the station. . "It was a terrible experience," he said. "We had to hide the kids and shelter them, then I sat for an hour as he shot off rounds." The Stratford High School senior was a co-organizer for the Houston March For Our Lives, a sister march of the national movement organized by survivors of the Parkland high school shooting. . McClinton is also on Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner's (D) gun violence prevention commission, and says in his platform that he will "fight hard to implement the recommendations" of that commission. Other issues highlighted in his platform include preparation for flooding and storms, support for human trafficking victims and transportation innovation. -Victoria 🌹 #marcelmcclinton #houston #citycouncil #Melaninpoppin #votingmatters #platform #gunviolenceprevention #climatechange

As well as u wish for a better Nigeria, everyday of my waking and even though nothing is worth violence and strife, but still nothing comes to you until you wish it and take moves in getting it. . Tomorrow is really special to the largest black community on the planet. . How about we show giantism (Giant of Africa) and represent solitude and peace. Make a wise choice. . Choose light above darkness and let's see how great the next four years will be. No one is worth the fight or the tussle. can we please have an election as pretty as I am??? . #election2019 #nigeriadecides2019 #nigeria #politics #nigeriadecides #lagos #ibadan #abuja #politicians #politicalmemes #voting #votingmatters #votingpolls

Barr doesn’t just have a record of supporting the war on drugs and mass incarceration. As attorney general for George H.W. Bush, he was one of the architects for federal policies that supported BOTH‼️ .... As deputy attorney general from 1990 to 1991 and attorney general from 1991 to 1993, Barr pushed for and helped implement more punitive criminal justice policies, including a 1990 crime law that, among other things, escalated the war on drugs. .... In 1992, Barr signed off on a report by the Department of Justice titled The Case for More Incarceration. ..... In 1992, asked about racial disparities in prisons by Los Angeles Times reporter Ronald Ostrow, Barr argued that “our system is fair and does not treat people differently.” ⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️ If you're constantly trashing Kamala Harris and not focused on this guy who is a CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER....I'm I'm going question your ulterior motives. This son of a bitch has SWEEPING law enforcement power‼️ #williambarr #criminaljustice #nevertrump #democrats #borderwall #impeachtrump #foxnews #government #trump #republican #impeach #russia #vote #votingmatters #strongwoman #resist #Humanity #stacyabrams

Happy Birthday Susan B Anthony!⠀ ⠀ An active abolitionist, Susan B Anthony worked tirelessly against slavery, becoming one of the fiercest public lecturers provoking riots from pro-slavery advocates. During the Civil War, Anthony founded the Women’s National Loyal League collecting half a million signatures to abolish slavery and was considered the driving force behind the 13th Amendment to the United States.⠀ ⠀ https://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/common/civil_war/WomensNationalLoyalLeague.htm⠀ ⠀ After the Civil War, Anthony established a close political alliance with the Republican Party utilizing the relationship to gain Congressional sponsors for women’s suffrage. ⠀ ⠀ “I shall work for the Republican party and call on all women to join me, precisely... for what that party has done and promises to do for women, nothing more, nothing less.”⠀ ⠀ http://www.nfrw.org/women-suffrage⠀ ⠀ Founded the National Women’s Suffrage Association to lobby for a federal amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In 1872, she led groups of women to cast votes in the Presidential election challenging laws at the time and refused to pay fines. In 1878 the Federal Suffrage Amendment was introduced to Congress. Anthony documented and published “History Of Woman Suffrage” and unified the women’s suffrage movement into a single powerful organization National American Woman Suffrage Association.⠀ ⠀ Amendment XIX (Ratified 1920)⠀ ⠀ “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.⠀ ⠀ Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”⠀ ⠀ Today is Susan B Anthony’s legacy including her opposition to abortion, has resulted in her commemoration by Feminists for Life of America and the Susan B. Anthony List encouraging voters to elect pro-life leaders. ⠀ ⠀ Follow @sbalist @feministsforlifeofamerica ⠀ ⠀ https://www.sba-list.org (Susan B.

So this video isn't about Nigeria, but the message is still so powerful. . This country is ours to live in. Like the old lady said "she'll be dead soon". . It's a real shame that a man who was president 36 years ago, before some of us were born is ruling the country while a man who was vice president 10 years ago is his major competition. . There are 2 MAJOR elections tomorrow, but there's only so much noise about one. The National Assembly election is 🗝. . Dear Young People, we need to stop voting for parties, but for people that can effect change. It's up to us, not the old people to make that change. . So Bargain Lovers, let's prove the old man wrong. We're not lazy Nigerian youths. . Every vote counts. . . . . . . . . . . . #bargainfinderng #bargainfindergotyou #nigeriadecides2019 #voteyoursay #everyvotematters #votingmatters #abetternigeria #nigeria #lazynigerianyouths #votewisely #newnigeria 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬 at Lagos State

Had the awesome privilege to meet with Will Avila, #socialentrepreneur and cohort member at @halcyon_inspires founder of #cleandecisions - a for profit company employing and supporting ex-offenders in #DC, #baltimore (and beyond!) - and @changingperceptionsdc a nonprofit supporting formerly incarcerated people with business and life skills to support their re-entry post-release. Will is the definition of what a social entrepreneur should be - I’m thrilled to know him and to see all the work he’s doing helping to reduce the #recidivism and #massincarceration crisis. Check out his work to support or get involved! #cleandecisions #changingperceptions at Washington, District of Columbia
