November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Paul Ryan loses vice-presidential bid but keeps his House seat 06 Nov 2012 Paul Ryan came up short in his vice presidential bid, but his backup plan worked. The Wisconsin congressman easily won re-election Tuesday night to the U.S. House seat he has held since 1998. He also won his previous congressional elections by comfortable margins. Even before he was tapped as Mitt Romney's No. 2, Ryan was seen as a rising star within the Republican Party. As chairman of the powerful House Budget Committee, he gained prominence when he drew up an austere budget blueprint that would reshape Medicare for many people into a voucher-like program. He also attracted attention for wanting to keep tax breaks in place that were set to expire for the wealthy.

Grayson received support from all over the country, many of whom supported his attacks on Republicans, such as his proclamation during the health care debate that "Republicans want you to die quickly."

Al Gore: Voter suppression like 'racist Jim Crow tactics'

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Al Gore: Voter suppression like 'racist Jim Crow tactics' 06 Nov 2012 Al Gore said Tuesday on Current TV that the attempt this cycle to stop people from voting has been "un-American" and a "disgrace," adding that it is a "strategy that is a direct descendent" of "racist Jim Crow tactics." Gore, who co-founded the left-leaning cable channel, said he hopes there will be a "reckoning for these governors and state legistures that have intentionally tried to prevent people from voting. It is un-American." The problem -- which he said included the long lines facing many voters, particularly in Florida -- must be addressed in a bipartisan way after the election.

Tammy Baldwin tops Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin 07 Nov 2012 Democratic Rep. Tammy Baldwin has knocked off former Gov. Tommy Thompson in the Wisconsin Senate race, holding onto the seat for Democrats and making history by becoming the first openly gay member of the Senate.

"I am honored, and humbled and ready to get to work. I am well aware I will have the honor to be Wisconsin's first woman senator," she said. "I am well aware I will be the first openly gay member [of the Senate]. I didn't run to make history I ran to make a difference. I know that many of the people listening to the speech tonight may not have voted for me... and I ask you to work with me to move our state forward."

Fox News’s Chris Wallace said the Romney campaign does "not believe Ohio is in the Obama camp," noting that he got an email from a top Romney aide who said the campaign disagrees with the network's call. He then asked Rove if he believed Ohio has been settled. "No, I don't," Rove said.

By 11 p.m., Obama had already won the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Iowa and Wisconsin, the home of Romney's running mate Rep. Paul Ryan.

Pa.'s new voter-ID law caused confusion, voters say 06 Nov 2012 Pennsylvania's new voter-ID law, largely invalidated for the general election, still managed to sow some confusion and controversy Tuesday. Voters were not always asked for photo ID, as was supposed to happen during the so-called soft rollout. Anyone who could not or would not show an ID should have been allowed to vote as usual. But some voters complained that poll workers demanded an ID or tried to force them to submit provisional ballots.

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Republicans Set Back in Senate in Florida and Connecticut 07 Nov 2012 Democrats snatched Republican Senate seats in Indiana and Massachusetts on Tuesday and were poised to hold control of the Senate, handing Republicans a string of stinging defeats for the second campaign season in a row. In Indiana, Representative Joe Donnelly did what had seemed impossible by taking a Senate seat for the Democrats in a deep-red state... In Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard professor, swept from power Senator Scott P. Brown, the Republican whose surprise victory in January 2010 heralded the coming of the Tea Party wave. Those Democratic triumphs followed quick wins in Ohio, Connecticut, Florida and Pennsylvania, all states where Republicans had harbored ambitions of victory that would propel them to a Senate majority for the first time since 2006.

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

2012 election: 'Mayhem' and 6-hour waits in Miami 06 Nov 2012 Voting is continuing into the night Tuesday at a condo tower south of downtown here where "Hispanics for Obama" placards compete with an anti-communist poster taped to a palmetto bush - and where some residents say they’ve waited as long six hours to cast their ballots. "This is mayhem," said Carla Batlle of Miami, who emerged with her husband, Adrian, after an ordeal that began at 1:10 p.m. and didn’t end until almost 7. "It's a debacle. This is unorganized, unprofessional." Hundreds more were still waiting in a line snaking through the parking lot well past the official 7 p.m. EST closing time for the polls.

Breaking: Republicans projected to retain House majority 06 Nov 2012 Republicans are projected to hold their majority in the House, according to CNN, keeping the gavel in the hands of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Democrats would have needed a net gain of 25 seats to recapture the House, and early results in races across the country show them falling well short of that mark. The result is a resounding victory for House Republicans, who rode into power in the Tea Party-fueled wave election of 2010, and a bitter defeat for Democrats who had hoped to make Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Speaker of the House once more.

Ohio faces controversy over voting machines 06 Nov 2012 As people head to the polls today to cast their ballots, a critical "battleground" state in the presidential election faces a last-minute controversy over its voting machines. In Ohio, a lawsuit alleges that Secretary of State Suppression Jon Husted (R) and Election Systems & Software, an Omaha, Neb., company that makes electronic voting systems used in the state, improperly approved the use of untested, non-state certified software in voting machines to help tally results. The suit -- filed Monday in federal district court... claims that the software could erroneously alter election results or even lead to election fraud. According to the complaint, the suit alleges that the software could introduce mistakes into the vote count, or allow third parties to manipulate the results.

Voting problems reported in several states

November 7, 2012 by legitgov

Voting problems reported in several states 06 Nov 2012 Americans went to the polls by the tens of millions Tuesday, and while most voted without incident, long waits, legal disputes and lingering damage from Hurricane Sandy hindered balloting in several states. In Philadelphia, some voters reported that election workers required photo identification, despite a judge's ruling last month placing Pennsylvania's tough new ID law on hold for 2012. Officials are permitted to ask for photo identification as part of a test run but not as a condition for voting. Albert Hill, 56, said he argued for 10 minutes with a poll monitor who insisted he would not be allowed to vote unless he showed his photographic identification. He said he watched two African American women leave the line in front of him because they were turned away for the same reason.

Sandy disrupts voting; Northeast braces for new storm 06 Nov 2012 The aftermath of Superstorm Sandy created chaos and long lines at voting stations in the U.S. Northeast on Tuesday while officials braced for a new storm due to batter the region on Wednesday. The former hurricane that walloped New York and New Jersey eight days ago continued to create misery for the thousands who lost their homes and 900,000 households and businesses that remained without power. Voters casting ballots for the U.S. president endured confusion at makeshift polling stations. In New York City's Rockaways, a badly damaged barrier island community facing the Atlantic, people whose homes were damaged or destroyed or lacked power went to vote in a tent.

Voting machine changes Obama to Romney

November 6, 2012 by legitgov

Voting machine changes Obama to Romney 07 Nov 2012 Computer problems, as well as human ones, have drawn complaints across the US as millions of Americans go to the polls. One Pennsylvania voter highlighted a problem with voting machines on YouTube, complete with video, in which a touchscreen changed his choice from President Barack Obama to Republican Mitt Romney. "I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted," the man wrote. "I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney." This was not the first allegation of foul-ups with electronic machines. In Ohio, some Republicans claimed machines were changing Romney votes to Obama, while Democrats accused Republican state officials of installing untested "experimental" software at the last minute.
