Roger Stone attorneys file court documents apologizing to judge for crosshairs photo

Published

on

Roger Stone’s attorneys have filed court documents formally apologizing to the judge in his case, who was attacked by the defendant on Monday.

Stone posted a photo of Judge Amy Bergman Jackson attacking her. The photo had crosshairs appearing in the upper left corner. It has since been deleted and it was replaced with another photo of her without the crosshairs. That photo was also deleted.

“Undersigned counsel, with the attached authority of Roger J. Stone, hereby apologizes to the Court for the improper photograph and comment posted on Instagram today. Mr. Stone recognizes the impropriety and had it removed,” the court document said.

The term “had it removed” implies that Stone didn’t post it himself and it’s unclear if it was Stone that did it or someone else. The judge has issued a gag order in the case.

Stone swore that the photo was just a random picture he found online and the crosshairs were not his doing or intentional. It didn’t stop the internet from mocking him for being “dumb” for attacking the judge ruling in his case.

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.

Right-wing activists call on Mitch McConnell to stop blocking election security bills

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing renewed pressure to take up election security legislation, from a pair of unlikely sources: Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, and FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon.

Norquist — who once famously said that he wanted to slash government to a size where he could "drown it in a bathtub" — called for hand-marked paper ballots, and urged Congress to pass something similar to the bipartisan Secure Elections Act, which would have given states incentives to switch to secure voting methods and promoted data-sharing to identify threats. The measure was first introduced in 2017 by Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), James Lankford (D-OK), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), but never came to a vote.
