The coming electoral emergency: Unless people stand up to Trump, this election really could bring the end of the republic as we know it

The coming electoral emergency: Unless people stand up to Trump, this election really could bring the end of the republic as we know it

Earlier this week I drove over to the Rappahannock County, Va., voting registrar’s office, in a little red brick building next to the county courthouse in what’s known as “Little Washington.” For the first time this year, Virginia has “no excuse” early voting, meaning you don’t have to have a reason why you can’t vote on Election Day. With no wait or difficulty, I filled in my ballot and then fed it into the machine. I was citizen 58 to vote in the election in the county. The nice people in the registrar’s office assured me my vote would be counted on Election Day. Yes, it will, but it may...

Trump says he’s ‘not sure’ he can accept election results despite bipartisan pushback

President Trump refused to promise Thursday that he’ll accept the results of November’s election despite bipartisan outrage over his declining a day earlier to commit to a peaceful transition of power if Joe Biden wins. Speaking on the South Lawn of the White House before a trip to North Carolina, Trump reiterated his debunked claim that the election results could be tainted because of mail-in voting and that he thereby might not be able to trust them.

The president vs. democracy: By refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, Trump threatens the very foundation of the American republic

The president vs. democracy: By refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, Trump threatens the very foundation of the American republic

The president, convinced his reelection was doomed as the country teetered on the edge, with Americans violently split amid racial animosity and charges that he had badly mismanaged an unprecedented national calamity that had claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands, wrote the following and had his Cabinet sign it sight unseen, bonding their pledge with their signatures: “This morning, as for some days past, it seems exceedingly probable that this administration will not be re-elected. Then it will be my duty to so co-operate with the president-elect, as to save the Union between the...

NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson drops out of 2021 mayoral race

NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson drops out of 2021 mayoral race

And he’s out. NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson has ended his 2021 bid for mayor just months after a bruising budget battle that put him on the outs with many of the city’s progressive forces. Advertisement Johnson, who represents Chelsea, the West Village and parts of Midtown, was regarded as a leading contender before COVID-19 hit the city. His boosterism and openness for a short time served as an antidote to Mayor de Blasio’s awkwardness and prickly demeanor — but the protests after George Floyd’s death and the Council’s handling of the NYPD in its budget irked many liberals who felt the...

McConnell vows ‘orderly transition’ of power as Republicans stop short of calling out Trump

Win or lose, the show must go on. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Thursday led a parade of Republicans seeking to calm widespread outrage over President Trump’s refusal to commit to leaving office peacefully if he loses the election. Advertisement But like fellow GOP leaders, McConnell pointedly refused to name Trump and would not elaborate on their claims of certainty that the embattled commander-in-chief would honor the Constitution and leave office willingly. “There will be an orderly transition just as there has been every four years since 1792,” McConnell (R-Ky.) wrote in a...

My flight with Ruth Bader Ginsburg

My flight with Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Eleven years ago, I boarded the flight home to New York late on a Friday afternoon in late May with my heavy briefcase slung from my shoulder. It had been a tough day of meetings in the D.C. area as in-house counsel for a software company, and I was tired and anxious to get home. As I approached 8C, an aisle seat which was always my preference, I saw it was occupied by a small elderly woman. I rechecked my boarding pass, confirmed she was in my seat, and paused to think what to do. The lady looked up at me and said in a voice crackling with apology, “I’m probably in your seat.”...

Sen. Romney supports vote to fill Supreme Court vacancy before Election Day

Done deal. Game over. Checkmate. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Tuesday that he supports President Trump’s push to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court before Election Day. Advertisement “The decision to proceed now with President Trump’s nominee is also consistent with history. I came down on the side of the institution and precedent,” Romney said.

The contentious divorce between rapper Dr. Dre and estranged wife Nicole Young has hit another sour note. A letter sent to Young by attorneys for Record One, the recording studio co-founded by Dr. Dre in 2015, claims she committed “blatant and unjustifiable criminal embezzlement" by removing more than $350,000 from the company’s bank account in August, reported.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer blasted Mitch McConnell on Monday as a “pathetic” hypocrite who has lost all sense of dignity, reason and credibility, as the Republican boss vowed to force a pre-election vote on a successor for late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In his first floor speech since Ginsburg’s death on Friday, Schumer (D-N.Y.) noted that McConnell (R-Ky.) refused in 2016 to even grant a confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland — President Barack Obama’s pick to replace late Justice Antonin Scalia — because he claimed at the time that the election was too close...

NYC was named an “anarchist” city Monday by Attorney General William Barr as President Trump’s lieutenant moved to lay the groundwork for cutting federal funding amid bitter disputes over racial justice protests.

An accurate census in New York City? It’s tough to count on.

Repeal this law: New York must remove from the books a statute that criminalizes Walking While Trans

Section 240.37 of New York State’s Penal Law prohibits loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution. But in the years since it was enacted in 1976 to attack the flesh trade, the law has been abused, giving cops license to arrest people based on their clothes, too often targeting trans women or drag queens who did nothing more than don heels with a tight dress or short skirt. And as with many laws, those caught up by it are much more likely to be non-white. Enough. Stop the abuses by nixing the law, which opponents call “Walking While Trans.” Advertisement Advocates for repeal...
