Republican Women Feel Betrayed by Their Party

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 00:00:00 GMT2016-10-24T00:00:00Z

Earlier this month, Michigan GOP leaders told Wendy Day, the state party’s grassroots vice-chair, that she had to endorse Donald Trump or resign. Day, a former staffer for Ted Cruz, refused to do either. In a letter to the state Republican chairwoman, she wrote, “It is important for our party to represent all of the voices in our party, not just the loudest.” On Oct. 17—10 days after the release of the 2005 Access Hollywood tape in which Trump bragged about groping women—the chairwoman announced Day’s removal from the post she’d been elected to at a state convention last year.

Watchers take note: Dahlia Lithwick and Raymond Vasvari investigate exactly what citizen "observers," as commissioned by Donald Trump, can do while monitoring polls. They find that it varies state by state, and that showing up at a polling place with an openly carried gun may or may not be a protected action.

People cast their ballots in a polling station during the presidential primary election on April 26 in Philadelphia.

Authority Figures

We should all pretend that we care a lot about stuff other than the election but really who has the energy. As Elliot Hannon put it, “Other than—gasp—winning the presidency, these three debates were the biggest stage, the largest portion of our collective attention, that Donald Trump could possibly occupy, and, yes, it was painful at times, but we’re through the worst of it.”

“Climate Change Did It!” Is a Convenient Excuse

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 19:10:58 GMT2016-10-21T19:10:58Z

We’re posting transcripts of Amicus, our legal affairs podcast, exclusively for Slate Plus members. What follows is the transcript for Episode 51, in which Slate’s Dahlia Lithwick discusses Peña Rodriguez v. Colorado, an important case about jury bias that dominated the Supreme Court this week. Jeffrey Fisher, who represented the petitioner in the case, joins Dahlia in the conversation on why racist comments by jurors should invalidate the trial’s verdict.
