Detroit: Voting machines discovered locked inside a closet

According to local DETROIT (WXYZ)  News, some voters were reportedly turned away at a polling site in Detroit early on Election Day due to missing voting machines. 

The incident took place at the Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Detroit. Early voters arrived shortly after polls opened ready to vote but were turned away due to missing voting machine. They were shocked to find out that the precinct wasn't prepared and because they had no voting machines. 

Officials said there was a miscommunication about where the machine was located in the school.

After learning it was in a locked closet, workers said they were left with no key to open the door. Voters say they were initially told to go to the precinct across the street, though that was incorrect information. The delay left avid voters like Sheree Walton outraged.

"I take it very seriously," she said. "Someone died so I would have the right to vote." https://www.wxyz.com/news/voters-turned-away-due-to-missing-voting-machines-at-precinct-in-detroit,

The machines were eventually set up at  8:30 a.m, one and a half hour later. The workers finally had the machine up and running. The people who waited were worried about others that may have missed out on the opportunity because they had to leave.

Mail bomb suspect identified as Cesar Sayoc,jr. Van with hate speech is been transported.

A Florida resident was identified Friday as the suspect who sent a dozen pipe bomb packages to prominent critics of President Donald Trump, several law enforcement officials said.

DNA evidence played a role in the arrest of Cesar Sayoc, Jr., 56, the officials said. The authorities seized his white van, which had pictures of Trump and the presidential seal plastered to a window.

According to CNN, Federal authorities have arrested a man in connection to the suspected explosive packages.  The arrest happened in South Florida, law enforcement sources said.

According to the authorities, the bomb squad used equipment to conduct an X-ray of the package. Authorities saw “what appears to be a pipe bomb consistent with other devices we’ve seen this week contained in a package."

Miller said an “alert” postal worker, who was aware of the suspicious devices going through the mail, detected the package this morning.

That postal worker notified US Postal Police on scene who contacted the Joint Terrorism Task Force and the New York Police Department. https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/clintons-obama-suspicious-packages/index.html

CNN, is also reporting that the man have New York ties but has a Florida address. He had lived in the New York area for a while and have a criminal history.

Twelve packages have been sent to figures such as former president Barack Obama and actor Robert de Niro. The bomb was sent to the New York restaurant of actor Robert de Niro.

More Than 1000 Law Professors Urging The Senate Not Confirm Kavanaugh

Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh testifies in front of the Senate Judiciary committee regarding sexual assault allegations at the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, U.S., September 27, 2018. (REUTERS/File Photo)

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4

The New York Times have published names of hundreds of U.S. law professors that have already signed an online letter addressed to the U.S. Senate claiming that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is disqualified from sitting on the nation's highest court.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/10/03/opinion/kavanaugh-law-professors-letter.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur

According to the Huffington Post, the law professors are from nearly 100 law schools around the nation. So far, the list of law professors have reached over 1000 and counting.  The law professors argued that Kavanaugh ‘Lack Of Judicial Temperament’. They noted the letter will be presented to the U.S. Senate on Thursday, October 4, 2018, at 12:00 noon ET.

Open Letter to the United States Senate from Law Professors Around the Country
"Judicial temperament is one of the most important qualities of a judge. As the Congressional Research Service explains, to be a judge requires that an individual have “a personality that is evenhanded, unbiased, impartial, courteous yet firm, and dedicated to a process, not a result.” [1] The concern for judicial temperament dates back to our founding; in Federalist Paper 78, entitled “Judges as Guardians of the Constitution,” Alexander Hamilton expressed the need for “the integrity and moderation of the judiciary.”We are law professors who teach, research, and write about the judicial institutions of this country. Many of us appear in state and federal court, and our work means that we will continue to do so, including before the United States Supreme Court. We regret that we feel compelled to write to you to provide our views that at the Senate hearings on Thursday, September 27, 2018, the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land.

The question at issue was of course painful for anyone. But Judge Kavanaugh exhibited a lack of commitment to judicious inquiry. Instead of being open to the necessary search for accuracy, Judge Kavanaugh was repeatedly aggressive with questioners. Even in his prepared remarks, Judge Kavanaugh located the hearing as a partisan question, referring to it as “a calculated and orchestrated political hit,” rather than acknowledging the need for the Senate, faced with new information, to try to understand what had transpired. Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory, and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to questioners.

As you know, under two statutes governing bias and recusal, judges must step aside if they are at risk of being perceived as or of being unfair. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 144, 455. As this Congress has put it, a judge or justice “shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” 28 USC § 455. These statutes are part of a myriad of legal commitments to the impartiality of the judiciary, which is the cornerstone of the courts.

We have differing views about the other qualifications of Judge Kavanaugh. But we are united, as professors of law and scholars of judicial institutions, in believing that Judge Kavanaugh did not display the impartiality and judicial temperament requisite to sit on the highest court of our land".

Earlier this week, the Harvard Law School informed the students that Kavanaugh will not teach his course as scheduled next semester. The judge has taught "The Supreme Court Since 2005" course at Harvard Law School since 2009.

Three women came forward last month to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual harassment or assault during his high school and college years. Trump on Friday ordered a one-week probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) into the allegations.

Did Judge Brett Kavanaugh put alcohol in his anus and had threesome and lied under Oath?

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in before testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, on Capitol Hill in Washington, on Sept. 27, 2018.Michael Reynolds / EPA

Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing was watched by millions in America and people all over the world.

On Thursday September 27th, Judge Brett Kavanaugh testified under Oath on Christine Blasey-Ford’s allegation that he sexually assaulted her.

According to Blasey-Ford, "when I got to the small gathering, people were drinking beer in a small living room on the first floor of the house. I drank one beer that evening. Brett and Mark were visibly drunk. Early in the evening, I went up a narrow set of stairs leading from the living room to a second floor to use the bathroom. When I got to the top of the stairs, I was pushed from behind into a bedroom. I couldn’t see who pushed me. Brett and Mark came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them. There was music already playing in the bedroom. It was turned up louder by either Brett or Mark once we were in the room. I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me. He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me. I yelled, hoping someone downstairs might hear me, and tried to get away from him, but his weight was heavy. Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes. He had a hard time because he was so drunk, and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit under my clothes. I believed he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming. This was what terrified me the most, and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me. Both Brett and Mark were drunkenly laughing during the attack. They both seemed to be having a good time. Mark was urging Brett on, although at times he told Brett to stop. A couple of times I made eye contact with Mark and thought he might try to help me, but he did not.

During this assault, Mark came over and jumped on the bed twice while Brett was on top of me. The last time he did this, we toppled over and Brett was no longer on top of me. I was able to get up and run out of the room. Directly across from the bedroom was a small bathroom. I ran inside the bathroom and locked the door. I heard Brett and Mark leave the bedroom laughing and loudly walk down the narrow stairs, pin-balling off the walls on the way down. I waited and when I did not hear them come back up the stairs, I left the bathroom, ran down the stairs, through the living room, and left the house. I remember being on the street and feeling an enormous sense of relief that I had escaped from the house and that Brett and Mark were not coming after me".

Brett Kavanaugh vehemently denied Blasey-Ford's allegation. Kavanaugh told Fox News he was a virgin in high school and many years after high school. He accepted he likes beers but said he was never a sloppy drunk. He explained, his focus was on sports, academic and he was an avid church goer.

Nevertheless, Kavanaugh's Yearbook submission tells a different story according to people on the Internet.

There is an onslaught of tweets and social media responses to his Yearbook. People are calling Brett Kavanaugh a liar. They argued that he lied under oath and blatantly lied knowing millions of Americans are watching.

Brett Kavanaugh's Yearbook and definition from social media responses

Kavanaugh's Yearbook submission came in question by the Committee. He gave an explaining about the finer points of “boof” and “devil’s triangle” to Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.). In the video below, Kavanaugh claimed his use of the word “boof” referred to flatulence, while a “devil’s triangle” is a drinking game similar to quarters.

However, many on social media insist Kavanaugh’s definitions are incorrect and they are letting him know it.

BREAKING NEWS: The Jesuit Review “It is time for the Kavanaugh nomination to be withdrawn”

One of the most prominent Catholic Jesuit publication is calling for Judge kavanaugh to withdraw his nomination.

Brett Kavanaugh attended Georgetown Preparatory School, a Jesuit high school. This is therefore damning that the editors a Jesuit publication is calling on President Trump to withdraw Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

The article was published after Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, a woman who accused Kavanaugh of trying to rape her in 1982 at a house party, testified before of the Senate Judiciary Committee about the allegations.

The magazine editor wrote, "even if the credibility of the allegation has not been established beyond a reasonable doubt and even if further investigation is warranted to determine its validity or clear Judge Kavanaugh’s name, we recognize that this nomination is no longer in the best interests of the country".

"Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee today clearly demonstrated both the seriousness of her allegation of assault by Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and the stakes of this question for the whole country. Judge Kavanaugh denied the accusation and emphasized in his testimony that the opposition of Democratic senators to his nomination and their consequent willingness to attack him was established long before Dr. Blasey’s allegation was known", the magazine added.

"Evaluating the credibility of these competing accounts is a question about which people of good will can and do disagree. The editors of this review have no special insight into who is telling the truth. If Dr. Blasey’s allegation is true, the assault and Judge Kavanaugh’s denial of it mean that he should not be seated on the U.S. Supreme Court. But even if the credibility of the allegation has not been established beyond a reasonable doubt and even if further investigation is warranted to determine its validity or clear Judge Kavanaugh’s name, we recognize that this nomination is no longer in the best interests of the country. While we previously endorsed the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh on the basis of his legal credentials and his reputation as a committed textualist, it is now clear that the nomination should be withdrawn": https://www.americamagazine.org/politics-society/2018/09/27/editors-it-time-kavanaugh-nomination-be-withdrawn

Brett Kavanaugh has been accused by Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick of varying degrees of sexual misconduct while he was in high school and college. He has adamantly denied the allegations.

Written Testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford
United States Senate Judiciary Committee September 26, 2018
Chairman Grassley, Ranking Member Feinstein, Members of the Committee. My name is Christine Blasey Ford. I am a Professor of Psychology at Palo Alto University and a Research Psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine. I was an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina and earned my degree in Experimental Psychology in 1988. I received Master’s degree in 1991 in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. In 1996, I received a PhD in Educational Psychology from the University of Southern California. I earned a Master’s degree in
Epidemiology from the Stanford University School of Medicine in 2009.
I have been married to Russell Ford since 2002 and we have two children. I am here today not because I want to be. I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school. I have described the events publicly before. I summarized them in my letter to Ranking Member Feinstein, and again in my letter to Chairman Grassley. I understand and appreciate the importance of your hearing from me directly about what happened to me and the impact it has had on my life and on my family. I grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. I attended the Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland, from 1980 to 1984. Holton-Arms is an all-girls school that opened in 1901.During my time at the school, girls at Holton-Arms frequently met and became friendly with boys from all-boys schools in the area, including Landon School, Georgetown Prep, Gonzaga High School, country clubs, and other places where kids and their families socialized. This is how I met Brett Kavanaugh, the boy who sexually assaulted me. In my freshman and sophomore school years, when I was 14 and 15 years old, my group of friends intersected with Brett and his friends for a short period of time. 
I had been friendly with a classmate of Brett’s for a short time during my freshman year, and it was through that connection that I attended a number of parties that Brett also attended. We did not know each other well, but I knew him and he knew me. In the summer of 1982, like most summers, I spent almost every day at the Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase, Maryland swimming and practicing diving.One evening that summer, after a day of swimming at the club, I attended a small gathering at a house in the Chevy Chase/Bethesda area. There were four boys I remember being there: Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge, P.J. Smyth, and one other boy whose name I cannot recall. I remember my friend Leland Ingham attending. I do not remember all of the details of how that gathering came together, but like many that summer, it was almost surely a spur of the moment gathering. I truly wish I could provide detailed answers to all of the questions that have been and will be asked about how I got to the party, where it took place, and so forth. I don’t have all the answers, and I don’t remember as much as I would like to. But the details about that night that bring me here today are ones I will never forget. They have been seared into my memory and have haunted me episodically as an adult.When I got to the small gathering, people were drinking beer in a small living room on the first floor of the house. I drank one beer that evening. Brett and Mark were visibly drunk. Early in the evening, I went up a narrow set of stairs leading from the living room to a second floor to use the bathroom. When I got to the top of the stairs, I was pushed from behind into a bedroom. I couldn’t see who pushed me. Brett and Mark came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them. 
There was music already playing in the bedroom. It was turned up louder by either Brett or Mark once we were in the room. I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me. He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me. I yelled, hoping someone downstairs might hear me, and tried to get away from him, but his weight was heavy. Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes. He had a hard time because he was so drunk, and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit under my clothes. I believed he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming.This was what terrified me the most, and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me. Both Brett and Mark were drunkenly laughing during the attack. They both seemed to be having a good time. Mark was urging Brett on, although at times he told Brett to stop. A couple of times I made eye contact with Mark and thought he might try to help me, but he did not.During this assault, Mark came over and jumped on the bed twice while Brett was on top of me. The last time he did this, we toppled over and Brett was no longer on top of me. I was able to get up and run out of the room. Directly across from the bedroom was a small bathroom. I ran inside the bathroom and locked the door. I heard Brett and Mark leave the bedroom laughing and loudly walk down the narrow stairs, pin-balling off the walls on the way down. I waited and when I did not hear them come back up the stairs, I left the bathroom, ran down the stairs, through the living room, and left the house. I remember being on the street and feeling an enormous sense of relief that I had escaped from the house and that Brett and Mark were not coming after me

(CNN)US officials met secretly with Venezuelan military plotting coup against Venezuelan President Maduro

Washington (CNN). According to CNN, United States officials met secretly with Venezuelan military officers who were plotting a coup against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, both a current and a former US official confirmed to CNN. American officials met with the renegade Venezuelan military officers several times over the last year after the Venezuelan officers made contact, but Washington ultimately decided against supporting the coup, the two sources said. The US did not provide the Venezuelan officers with any support and the plans for the coup ultimately fell apart, the sources said.

On August 5th/ 2018, the Venezuelan government alleged that opposition factions conspired with assailants in Miami and Bogota in an assassination attempt to kill Maduro.

"This was an attempt to kill me," he said.

Maduro said the "far right," working in coordination with others in Bogota and Miami, including Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, were responsible. Colombia's government has vehemently denied Santos had any role in the drone attack. Maduro, who also says that Washington supports his political opponents, called on U.S. President Donald Trump to hold the "terrorist group" accountable.

Could Venezuela be Trump's war?

Friday August 11, 2017-President Donald Trump said he would not rule out a "military option" in Venezuela as the ruling regime there consolidates power.

"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary," Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Friday.

The reporter asked whether this military option would be led by the United States, Trump responded: "We don't talk about it. But a military operation, a military option, is certainly something we could pursue," he responded.  Reuters reported later Friday that the Pentagon said the White House hadn't given it any orders on Venezuela.

In response, Venezuela's defense minister said that Trump's threat of military intervention was "a crazy act." In an address to that assembly, Maduro expressed a desire to have a dialogue with Trump.

"Mr. Donald Trump, here is my hand," he said- — CNBC, Reuters and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

The White House declined to comment on the meetings between US officials and Venezuelan military officers, but said in a statement the US continues to support "a peaceful orderly return to democracy in Venezuela."

"U.S. policy preference for a peaceful, orderly return to democracy in Venezuela remains unchanged. The United States government hears daily the concerns of Venezuelans from all walks of life -- be they members of the ruling party, the security services, elements of civil society or from among the millions of citizens forced by the regime to flee abroad. They share one goal: the rebuilding of democracy in their homeland," said National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis. "A lasting solution to Venezuela's worsening crisis can only arise following restoration of governance by democratic practices, the rule of law, and respect for fundamental human rights and freedoms."-CNN.

“I have never cheated”. Controversy as Serena lose Tennis final to Japanese newcomer Naomi Osaka.

Flushing Meadows, New York-The normally well-behaved Tennis games had erupted in controversy of cheating and accusation of sexism as Serena Williams lost the 2018 US Open final to Japanese newcomer Naomi Osaka.

Saturday 8th 2018 Serena faced off with twenty years old Naomi Osaka.  This is Osaka's first Grand Slam Title. She admits to love and idolizes the tennis super star. When asked by the reporter, what is her message to Serena before they face each other in the US Open final, she replied, "I love you."

The controversy began when Serena was penalized by umpire Carlos Ramos when he accused her of getting coaching  from the stands.

Ms. Williams was given her first code violation in the second game of the second set after Ramos adjudged her coach Patrick Mouratoglou of coaching from the stands – something which is currently banned in tennis. Williams claimed she didn’t see any gesture from Mouratoglou but he later admitted to ESPN that he had been – or at least had been trying – to give her signals. “I was coaching but I don’t think she looked at me,” Mouratoglou said. “Sash [Osaka’s coach Sascha Bajin] was coaching as well. Everybody does it.”

The umpire then handed out another code violation and docked a point after Serena Williams smashed her racket in anger after losing on her serve in the second set. At the next changeover, Ms. Williams decided to confront Ramos.

Serena Williams argued with umpire Carlos Ramos during the final

After being penalized for throwing her racket early in the second set Serena confronted the umpire: 'This is unbelievable. Every team I play here I have problems.

'I didn't get coaching, I didn't get coaching. I didn't get coaching. You need to make an announcement that I didn't get coaching. I don't cheat, I didn't get coaching. How can you say that?

'You owe me an apology. You owe me an apology. I have never cheated in my life. I have a daughter and I stand for what is right for her and I've never cheated. You owe me an apology".

After being broken to trail 4-3 in the second set:

'I never got coaching. I explained that to you and for you to attack my character then something is wrong. You're attacking my character. Yes you are. You owe me an apology.

'You will never, ever, ever be on another court of mine as long as you live. You are the liar. When are you going to give me my apology? You owe me an apology.

'Say it, say you're sorry. Then don't talk to me, don't talk to me. How dare you insinuate I was cheating? You stole a point from me. You're a thief too.'

After being docked a game:

'Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Because I said you were a thief? You stole a point from me. I'm not a cheater. I told you to apologise to me. Excuse me I need the referee, I don't agree with that.'

With tournament referees:

'This is not right... [INAUDIBLE]... He said I was being coached but I was not being coached. That's not right. You know me. You know my character. This is not fair. This has happened to me too many times. This is not fair. To lose a game for saying that is not fair. Do you know how many men do things that are much worse than that? This is not fair.

'There are a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things and because they are a man it doesn't matter. This is unbelievable. No I don't know the risk because if I say a simple thing, a thief, because he stole a point from me.

'There are men out here that do a lot worse and because I'm a woman you're going to take this away from me. That is not right. And you know it and I know you can't admit it, but I know you know that is not right. I know you can't change it but I'm just saying that is not right.

'I get the rules but I'm just saying it's not right. It happens to me at this tournament every single year and it's not fair. That's all I have to say.'

Post-match press conference:

'I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me.

'But I've seen other men call other umpires several things. I'm here fighting for women's rights and for women's equality and for all kinds of stuff. For me to say 'thief' and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. He's never taken a game from a man because they said "thief". It blows my mind.

'I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions, and that wants to express themselves, and wants to be a strong woman.

'They're going to be allowed to do that because of today. Maybe it didn't work out for me, but it's going to work out for the next person.'~ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-6147775/FULL-TRANSCRIPT-Serena-Williams-entire-outburst-Open-final.html?ito=social-facebook

Serene accused the umpire of sexism. Some fans agreed with a mix reaction

'I can't sit here and say I wouldn't say he's a thief, because I thought he took a game from me. 'But I've seen other men call other umpires several things.

Floridians are told the last thing they want to do is “monkey this up” by electing the first ever black governor

Floridians are told the last thing they want to do is “monkey this up” by electing the first ever black governor. Florida made history in nominating the first ever Democratic black governor, with Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, upsetting former Representative, Gwen Graham to capture the Florida Democratic gubernatorial nomination.

Given today's racially charged political climate, Florida definitely sets the stage for one of the races to watch by all, including Democratic, Republican voters, Neutrals and Independents alike. According to reports by the Washington Post and CNN, Rep. Ron DeSantis spurred controversy and cries of racism Wednesday, when he declared voters would "monkey this up" if they elected his African-American opponent, Andrew Gillum, to be governor. The republican candidate's allegations came less than 24 hours after his victory in the Florida Republican gubernatorial primary.

Florida Republican Nominatee Ron DeSantis (left) and Democratic Nominatee Andrew Gillum (right).

The Sunshine State of Florida in the United States took a huge step to electing its first black governor, with Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, upsetting former Representative, Gwen Graham to capture the Florida Democratic gubernatorial nomination, Tuesday night.

The shock result came ahead of November's eagerly anticipated mid-term elections, already being billed as a bitter fight for power between an invigorated Democratic Party and the Donald Trump, led Republican Party. At 39, Gillum's victory seems to represent a younger generation of leaders, while riding to victory as Florida Democratic Party's nominee. The former Florida A&M University Graduate and Gainesville, Florida resident won what is considered by many as a surprise victory over a competitive field of over five candidates, including former U.S. representative Gwendolyn Graham (age 55), who served as U.S. Representative for Florida's 2nd district from 2015-2017.

Gillum will be expected to face Republican, Ron DeSantis in the general election of 2020. DeSantis, also 39 years of age assumed office in 2013. He is a native of Jacksonville, FLA. Gillum, turning to the camera, in one of his only campaign ads, asked prior to Tuesday's vote, "What's impossible? The son of a bus driver becoming Mayor of the capital city? Is it impossible to come from nothing, be outspent 10-to-1 and win?" Meanwhile, Gillum's selection seems, for some, the clear choice of liberals in Tuesday's race, given he had garnered support from certain liberal leading figures in the Democratic party, including Wealthy California businessman Tom Steyer, who reportedly sponsored ads nationally calling for President Donald Trump to be impeached. He was also supported by George Soros and Vermont, Democratic socialist, Senator Bernie Sanders. Gillum's successful campaign ran on issues advocating for single-payer health insurance and calling for Trump's impeachment.
