After almost two years of ignoring calls from the public for a more aggressive stance towards Russia over election interference, the Trump administration has announced today, less than 4 months to the midterm elections, that they plan to counter efforts by Russia to interfere in the upcoming elections
After doing nothing about this serious issue for almost two years, coupled with the recent Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki where Trump chose to believe Putin over U.S. Intel assessments, no reasonable person should take seriously the Trump administration’s new found “concern” over Russian election meddling, especially congressional Dems. Dems must remain vigilant on all issues related to election security.
Yours Truly suggests Dems enlist the services of election integrity advocates like Jennifer Cohn and others who are coming up with brilliant suggestions to combat voting machine hacking.
I just published this article w/ ADVOCACY ACTION ITEMS relating to election integrity. It includes SCRIPTS for calls, emails, social media posts, & postcards on a variety of subjects important to securing our votes & voter registrations. Pls share. TY! 1/ https://t.co/ZC3xZEmNA5

Bottom line the decision by the Trump administration to all of a sudden get tough on Russia should provide no comfort to Dems less than 4 months to the midterms. Dems must remain vigilant and push local election officials to enact the brilliant election security suggestions proposed by Jennifer Cohn and others.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
