Under-reported Stories Catch-up (103118)

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 7:30 am

I’m going to have to limit myself to a half-dozen relatively brief items today.

Here’s today’s roundup of stories from earlier this month which haven’t gotten the attention they deserve, all of which should be considered relevant to voters’ decisions as to which candidates — and which party’s candidates — they should support at the polls during this election cycle:

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown has “Me-Too” problems which are getting little exposure.

Hardly a story anywhere, despite a journalist being the victim: “Jerry Wolkowitz, a freelance journalist and EMT, died on Thursday months after he was attacked for being a ‘white man.’ Wolkowitz, 56, was attacked in New Jersey on May 1 by 26-year-old Jamil S. Hubbard.”

Here’s quite the non-endorsement: Nevada Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak’s ex-wife says ”Sisolak treated her like ‘a total prisoner’ throughout their 13-year marriage and that he drove a wedge between her and her children. Garland said she was left with a bruised neck after an altercation with Sisolak after she filed for divorce in 2000, according to pictures and a contemporaneous diary entry.”

More on unhinged Arizona Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema: “Stay-At-Home Moms (Are) Nothing But Leeches.” 

Long-overdue pushback: “Senate Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his wife were accosted by protestors while out for dinner Friday night. But other patrons at the restaurant came to his defense, shooing one attacker away from the couple.”

NBC’s Chuck Todd, a chronic media-bias denier, “Desperately Tries to Hold Out Hope for a Blue Wave.”
