This is a true story. After getting rid of a real auditor who ran the office during his lengthy absences from the job, outgoing State Auditor Tom Wagner has appointed a pretend auditor, James ‘Hug Me, I Used To Be A Cop’ Spadola, as Deputy Auditor. He will in fact be the Acting Auditor b/c […]

Simpler & Lavelle: Cheaters: Part Deux

  Yes, what Greg Lavelle did is clearly illegal. In fact, he voted on the bill that specifically made it illegal back in 2012. WHYY provides journalistic context to the News-Journal stenography.  From Mark Eichmann’s story: While PACs are not allowed to coordinate “electioneering” messages with campaigns, before 2012 PACs were able to circumvent finance […]

Another Sleeper Race For Y’All

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on October 10, 2018 14 Comments

My skepticism notwithstanding, people in the field on both sides of the aisle tell me that Krista Griffith has a legitimate shot at taking down Deborah Hudson in RD 12. Why have I been skeptical? The numbers, mostly. 7168 D; 7313 R; and 5336 I. The only NCC Rep. District with an R plurality. Hey, […]

We COULD Have A Progressive-ish AG In Kathy Jennings

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on October 10, 2018 14 Comments

No, not someone who would implement the visionary proposals of Chris Johnson. However, Kathy Jennings adopted (appropriated?) many of Chris’ ideas and, unlike Tom Carper, who we know doesn’t support a $15 minimum wage or drug reimporation despite lying about that during his debate with Kerri Harris, Jennings doesn’t have a history that suggests she’s […]

Meet Your New State Legislators

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on October 2, 2018 1 Comment

I know, I know, election’s not until November.  However, there were several contested primaries, and the winners of many of those primaries face no opposition in November.  So, they’ll be on the payroll the day after the election.  Let’s take a look at them, accompanied by my occasionally trenchant analysis: Senate District 2: Darius Brown […]

Too many intriguing songs for just one music dump this month.  I’m gonna continue doing them in alphabetical order by artist’s name.  Select your faves: This was Drive-By Truckers before they were Drive-By Truckers.  Just now being released: A classic in its infancy: I’m a sucker for great harmonies.

Delaware’s Most Important Legislative Race Of 2018

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on September 25, 2018 31 Comments

I was tempted to call this the ‘only’ important race of 2018, but that’s probably an overstatement. However, the contest between incumbent Greg Lavelle and Laura Sturgeon has loads of implications beyond the boundaries of the 4th Senatorial District.  It is not only a referendum on the Delaware Republican Party and one of its leading […]

Ladeez and Gentlemen: Scott Walker, YOUR Rethug Nominee For Congress

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on September 11, 2018 40 Comments

I rarely throw the term ‘despicable’ around, even when it comes to the most despicable of politicians.  After all, they are presumably human beings and they likely are good people in their own private Idahos. Scott Walker is truly despicable in every sense of the word. A man devoid of basic humanity.  A slumlord who […]

Primary Elections Results Thread-Sept. 6, 2018

I’m a pessimist by nature–and I’m pessimistic this evening. At least when it comes to the three key statewide races. I have the most hope for the Harris-Carper race. But the small turnout for that GOTV event last night concerns me. I’m not sure we’re quite there yet, at least not at the statewide level. […]
