“Embarrassing”: Even Republicans fume at Michigan GOP for defending candidates busted for fraud | Salon.com
The Michigan Bureau of Elections released a report on Monday recommending that leading Republican gubernatorial candidates James Craig and Perry Johnson, as well as three others, be disqualified from the ballot after submitting too many fake petition signatures. The bureau said it had identified 36 petition circulators who submitted more than 68,000 fake signatures across 10 sets of nominating contests, including the governor’s primary. The state Board of Canvassers on Thursday deadlocked on whether to accept or reject the recommendation, effectively leaving in place the bureau’s decision to disqualify all five candidates, although Republicans have vowed to challenge the outcome in court.
Republican election attorney John Pirich told Salon that the fraud scheme uncovered by the election officials is “the largest I’ve ever seen.”

Headache-Inducing Snarky Snippets
The makers of such over-the-counter medications as Tylenol and Advil must be raking in the profits these days, for a headache is a natural state of being for most of us as soon as we boot up the computer or turn on the television news in the morning! So anyway, after popping four ibuprofen with my morning Joe, here I am back with even more of those snarky snippets.
This dude …
… was one of the insurrectionists that stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempted coup on January 6th 2020. His name is Timothy Hale-Cusanelli and at the time of his felonious insurrection he was a member of the U.S. Army Reserves … you know, those guys who are supposed to protect us in times of trouble? Well, turns out Hale-Cusanelli is a Nazi supporter … don’t ask me how the Sam Hell he got into the U.S…

Que tipo de pessoa sente ” prazer ” com a dor do outro? Que tipo de ser humano ao colocar uma mulher na posição de constrangimento, rir com a intenção de machucar? A violência contra a mulher é um acontecimento histórico vergonhoso. Portanto, requer ” Conscientização ” não sadismo.

‘Daughter’s long Covid makes us prisoners in our own home’ – BBC News
A woman whose nine-year-old daughter has not recovered since catching Covid in 2020 has told how long Covid has made them “prisoners” in their own home.
Helen Goss, who also has the post-viral condition, said daughter Anna’s illness “upturned” their world.
More than 150,000 people in Scotland are thought to have long Covid.
The Scottish government said it was spending £3m per year to support care for patients with long-term symptoms.
But Ms Goss, who now represents the charity Long Covid Kids in Scotland, has called for more support – specifically for children.

Covid-weary Americans enter Memorial Day with little effort to contain a still-raging pandemic – The Washington Post (Me: Weary? Weary of living? Neither the Post or many people have the spine to fight and win against Covid!)
“This one is really revved up, and it’s probably getting up there with something as transmissible as measles,” said Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College, describing the BA.2.12.1 subvariant now accounting for more than half of new cases. “Over the Memorial Day holidays, if you are in settings where you are indoors with large numbers of people without masks … there is a good likelihood you will suffer a breakthrough infection.” Source: Covid-weary Americans enter Memorial Day with little effort to contain a still-raging pandemic – The Washington Post
