Broward Elections Supervisor Mixed Good and Bad Provisional Ballots

Broward Elections Supervisor Mixed Good and Bad Provisional BallotsBroward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes contaminated about 200 valid provisional ballots by combining them with more than a dozen rejected ballots, the Miami Herald reported late Friday. The Broward canvassing board discovered the mistake when Snipes conceded to Republican attorneys’ demand that she present the board with 205 provisional ballots for inspection on Friday evening. The 205 contaminated provisional ballots were filled out by voters whose information did not appear in the databases at their respective polling stations, but whose registrations were confirmed when election workers called the Broward elections headquarters.

Some good news: Doughnut the 28-pound cat has a new homeMove over Bruno: Another thicc cat's found his happy home. The enormous 28-pound cat's name is Doughnut, and the internet fell in love with him on Friday when the Jacksonville Humane Society posted photos of him on Facebook.  OH LAWD HE COMIN! #chonk pic.twitter.com/ZeZc0iI9A3 — Jax Humane Society (@jaxhumane) October 26, 2018 According to the original post showing off all of Doughnut's curves, one requirement for his new home was "an owner who is willing to keep him on his strict diet." They acknowledged that while many of us might like a chunky cat, it's really not very healthy for Doughnut to be that overweight.  "His new family will need to work with a vet to get him to the right weight at the right pace," the post stressed. But all is well, according to a recent Facebook update sharing that Doughnut is now in a happy home with a new owner. The Jacksonville Humane Society Facebook page said that pictures of the cat in his new home will be posted soon. Hopefully by the time we get new photos of Doughnut, he'll look a little slimmer. After all, a healthy cat is a happy cat. We all wish Doughnut the best of luck on his weight-loss journey.  [H/T: NBC New York] WATCH: This smart feeder will stop your pets from mooching off each other

Elizabeth Warren urges Trump to make good on $1 million pledge over DNA tests

Elizabeth Warren urges Trump to make good on $  1 million pledge over DNA testsA Democratic senator has challenged Donald Trump to make good on a pledge to donate $ 1 million to charity if a DNA test proved she has Native American ancestry. Elizabeth Warren, who is expected to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, released a DNA test on Monday showing "strong evidence" she has Native-American heritage. Ms Warren sent a tweet reminding Mr Trump of his offer to give $ 1 million to a charity of her choice. "Remember saying on 7/5 that you’d give $ 1M to a charity of my choice if my DNA showed Native American ancestry?" She added: "I remember – and here's the verdict. Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center". Known as a liberal firebrand in her party, Ms Warren is a former Harvard Law School professor who has championed populist economics including student loan reform and a higher minimum wage. The Democrat senator and Mr Trump clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign. Having some memory problems, @realDonaldTrump? Should we call for a doctor? Here’s something you won’t “forget,” Mr. President: You’re the least popular president in modern history & your allies will go down hard in the midterm elections. 22 days. Tick-tock, tick-tock. pic.twitter.com/53FV0HXGXX— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) October 15, 2018 The US president has repeatedly called Ms Warren "Pocahontas," the name of a 17th century Native American chief's daughter, to draw attention to a controversy over her heritage raised during her 2012 Senate race. When Mr Trump was asked about the DNA test on Monday, he said, "Who cares?" as he left Washington to visit hurricane-stricken areas in Florida and Georgia. "I hope she's running for president, because I think she'll be very easy," he added. Asked whether he would pay $ 1 million to charity, Mr Trump told reporters: "I didn't say that. I didn't – you better read it again." Taunting her over her claims in July, Trump said: "I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian. "I have a feeling she will say no," he said.  Ms Warren provided the DNA test results in a statement on her campaign website, suggesting she has a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations. The report was carried out by Stanford University professor Carlos Bustamante. It states that "the vast majority" of Ms Warren's ancestry is European but the results "strongly support the existence " of a Native American ancestor. The DNA test is the latest sign that Ms Warren intends to put her name forward for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.  The Democrat has denied benefiting from her background since she ran for the Senate in 2012, when it emerged that she was listed as a minority in a Harvard Law School directory. She has frequently faced attacks from the White House and Republicans who have suggested she used claims of native ancestry to advance her academic career. Along with her DNA results, Ms Warren released a web page featuring documents, videos and written testimonies from colleagues and employers at Harvard stating her background did not feature in their hiring decisions. Among them is one from Republican President Ronald Reagan's former solicitor general, Charles Fried, who wrote: "I recommended Elizabeth Warren to the faculty of Harvard Law School because she is a tremendous teacher…She is an important scholar."  He added of her ancestry:  "I knew nothing about this at the time I studied her credentials… It never came up." Ms Warren, who is a senator for Massachusetts, has said she will take a "hard look" at challenging Mr Trump in 2020 after November's midterm elections. However the senator has been involved in election races in all 50 states and studiously called every candidate who has won their local Democratic primary.  She has also deployed staff to the four states – New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada = where early presidential primaries take place.  "If you were advising someone who had the resources of someone who was going to run for president, this is what you would do," David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's former adviser, told the Washington Post.
