Tom the Dancing Bug nails Trump

Voted this morning in No Va at 8. Was vote 126 on the Democratic side. Only 58 votes on the GOP.

No one had any tables set up (except the libertarians with some petition to get on the ballot.)

Ms FSogol said, "Libertarians, you mean like Rand Paul?"
Petition guy, enthusiastically, "Yeah!"
Ms FSogol, "Good Gawd, No way."


Although about double the votes as a normal non-presidential local election, plently of parking, no line, no traffic. Low turnout imo, huge HRC win.

Added: Strange primary. No signs were posted and I've seen no signs around neighborhoods. In the last few weeks, I've seen about a dozen Bernie stickers, a few HRC, two Trump, and a Cruz. The GOP seems to hate all their candidates.

"Hi, I'm Jamie Dimon" from Dave Kellett

When will Rubio's stealing from the Florida GOP come out in the media?

For five years, Marco Rubio has tried to put behind him the controversy of his spending on a Republican Party of Florida credit card, taking the unusual step over the weekend of making public nearly two years of American Express statements to show how he spent the party’s money.

In some ways, however, the statements, which he previously refused to make public, raise more questions about how Rubio used the card, rather than laying them to rest.

Some big-ticket expenses he rang up on the card — $1,625 at the St. Regis Hotel in New York, $527 for food and drinks at Disney, $953 for a meal at Silver Slipper, the Tallahassee steakhouse — are the kind of eye-catching charges expected for someone doing party business.

But a slew of small charges at gas stations and for cheap meals — at a time when Rubio was struggling with his personal finances — suggest Rubio made the most of the ample leeway and little oversight party leaders gave employees and lawmakers to spend the party’s cash.

The Florida GOP issued corporate cards, intended for business use, during flush years a decade ago. A spending scandal threw the party into crisis five years later, around 2010, when some of the AmEx statements — including Rubio’s from 2007-08 — were made public. Rubio’s presidential campaign released the remaining two years of statements from 2005-06 on Saturday to show Rubio had repaid the party when he misused the card for personal charges.
