https://www.masslive.com/news/2020/08/cd-1-progressive-coalition-questions-timing-of-alex-morse-allegations-reaffirms-its-support-for-his-bid-for-congress-against-us-rep-richard-neal.html

A coalition of left-leaning Democratic Groups supporting Holyoke Mayor Alex B. Morse in his bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal in the First Congressional District accused the College Democrats of Massachusetts Tuesday of trying to torpedo Morse’s chances in the race.

“How did a letter from the College Democrats sent to Mayor Alex Morse via email end up in The Daily Collegian this past weekend?” David Greenberg, a spokesman for the CD-1 Progressive Coalition, wrote in a statement. “It is ‘disingenuous’ at best, as the CDMA would say, to suggest that the public dissemination of the very vague accusations against Alex, three weeks before the September 1 Primary, is not a political act intended to affect the outcome.”

The CD-1 Progressive Coalition agreed, saying:

“We have read Alex’s statement in response to the allegations and have no reason to doubt its veracity. He has offered to fully support and participate in a process that will address the issues at hand. We certainly empathize with anyone who might have been affected and support due process wherever it may lead. We continue to fully support the candidacy of Alex Morse for Congress because the CDMA has provided no tangible evidence that would cause us to change our position.”

From The Intercept:
COLLEGE DEMOCRAT AT CENTER OF ATTACK ON ALEX MORSE HOPED TO LAUNCH CAREER THROUGH RICHARD NEAL
Rank-and-file UMass College Democrats were stunned to see the letter their chapter’s leadership wrote on their behalf.

With the allegations short of details or any student claiming to be a victim, the focus has shifted to the origin of the letter. The man serving as chief strategist for the UMass Amherst College Democrats, Timothy Ennis, recently completed a class with Neal, who teaches a journalism course. Ennis, according to two members of the College Democrats chapter, was open about his hopes of working for Neal in the future.

Meanwhile, an aide with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, in which the journalism program sits, alerted the school’s administration of evidence that the recently surfaced allegations against Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse “are politically motivated,” according to communication reviewed by The Intercept. Spokespersons for the administration did not respond to requests for comment.

The timing of all this smearing is a little too convenient. I sure hope he’s not being attacked cos he’s gay.

jcitybone

The main reason is he’s primarying Neal. Just using homophobia to try to bring him down.

The dark money uses all weapons to sway voters especially the uninformed

The whole thing stank so bad that when I saw it my twitter feed I smelled a rat. Political machinations to the max.

So gross. Meanwhile there were about four months in which we couldn’t even go to doctor unless in bad shape from Covid, and then you had to go to the ER. Health insurance has all become simply catastrophic coverage for most, if they’re lucky to even have that.

I would change “the Economy” to wall street remains strong

magsview

I get the impression that more and more people are waking up to the reality that up-trending market =/= necessarily mean a strong ‘economy’. People aren’t totally blind.

It always amazes me when people seem to fall for the other-country-with-state-funded-media-outlet-being-evil thing. I grew up with CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) which was (still is?) funded by the Cdn govt. I remember seeing one doc they funded and broadcast that was so overtly anti-China that even I, as a young person, went, hey, wait a minute…

I’ve been an on-line member since practically their start. I am glad to see this endorsement. MoveOn has been moving craporate right in the last few years. 😡

It is not so much the membership but rather the leadership.

A prime example:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karine_Jean-Pierre

Karine Jean-Pierre (born 1977) is a Haitian-American political campaign organizer, activist, political commentator, and lecturer in international and public affairs at Columbia University. She is the senior advisor and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org and a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. In August 2020, she was selected to serve as the chief of staff for Democratic presumptive vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

Yeah, I was a member for years but have left. Still glad to see the endorsement

That’s good to see. I was sort of thinking that they’d edged closer to the dark side.

Just in from “The Alabama of the North”:
Idaho lawmaker decries listening to health experts for school reopenings as ‘elitist approach’

“We’re letting a few fearful people control the lives of those of us who are not fearful,” Thayn said. “Listening to experts to set policy is an elitist approach and I’m very fearful of an elitist approach. I’m also fearful that it leads to totalitarianism, especially when you say, ‘Well. We’re doing it for the public good.’”

The FL Panhandle around Panama City and environs is called Alabama South. That is a very accurate description of the voting majority there.😳
