No matter how you feel about Neera Tanden, the theft & distribution of her personal information was wrong. And, whether you have a 🌹next to your name or not, you should be able to recognize that this is an aggressively misogynistic comment.
But there is something deeply disturbing about using personal information that was stolen from a woman to direct misogynistic hate against her.
Call misogyny out when you see it. *Particularly* when it comes from those w/in your own ranks.

This biblical passage was used by the Dutch Refomed Church in Apartheid South Africa. It was also used by some Christian denominations in Nazi Germany to justify accommodation with the Third Reich.
This biblical passage was also used by Reverend John C. Lord during his sermon in 1851 where he implored his audience to obey the Fugitive Slave Act.

If I have to, I'll explain. Promise. But the first important thing to know is that this is not a count tonight; it's unofficial and does not include absentee or provisional ballots. The formal count begins Friday, & overseas/military absentees have until next Tues to come in.
1. Almost all the voting in these counties is done on touchscreen machines. Westmoreland County has a mix of touchscreen and optical scan. So a recount won't change things much -- only the Westmoreland paper ballots & absentees/provisionals could.
2. Again, to stress: this isn't the official count. This is an informal count. Absentees/provisionals have not been counted yet. Wait until Friday on the former; on the latter voters have a week to verify their eligibility still.
