New Hampshire Requires ID on Primary Day, Despite Law Not Yet in Effect

By: Friday September 14, 2012 9:35 am

The signs were everywhere. They told New Hampshire residents participating in Tuesday’s primary election to bring ID to the polls. There’s only one problem: voter ID was not required for the primary election in the state of New Hampshire. As Scott Keyes explains, the state did pass a voter ID law this year, over the [...]

Over 9 Million Low-Income Americans at Risk From State Medicaid Expansion Opt-Out

By: Saturday June 30, 2012 8:14 am

I keep seeing these confident predictions from health care experts that no state would be so foolish as to reject the Medicaid expansion for their state. I want to set up a poker game with these people, to provide for my family in retirement. How many times can you say “well that’s so radical and [...]

LPS Uses Bogus Florida IG Report on Firing of Foreclosure Fraud Investigators in Motion to Dismiss Nevada Lawsuit

By: Tuesday January 31, 2012 12:23 pm

We’re at T-minus four days for sign-ons to the foreclosure fraud settlement, and we know that Florida’s Pam Bondi is on board, despite pushback from advocates in her state, ground zero for the foreclosure crisis. There’s an interesting nugget buried in this article, though. Bondi spokeswoman Jennifer Meale said in an email that their concerns [...]

O’Keefe Pals Attempt Voter Fraud in New Hampshire, Could Go to Jail For It

By: Wednesday January 11, 2012 1:13 pm

Here’s what we can now say. Of the hundreds of millions if not billions of electoral ballots processed over the past decade, the two most prominent cases of voter fraud involve the Republican Secretary of State of Indiana, and accomplices of James O’Keefe. Yesterday in New Hampshire, O’Keefe had the bright idea of getting some [...]

Huntsman Attacks Opponents on Financial Regulation, Bank Size

By: Wednesday January 4, 2012 10:15 am

With the move of the Presidential primary circus to New Hampshire, Jon Huntsman comes back onto the media radar screen, if not that of the voters. Huntsman has always been able to get some media love, and it’s interesting how he’s using it in his last-ditch attempt to salvage his Presidential campaign. He’s going after [...]

Looks Like Bachmann, Perry Out After Iowa

By: Wednesday January 4, 2012 6:55 am

I mostly agree with Jon Walker’s take on the Iowa caucus results, and the eight-vote victory for Mitt Romney. It’s not clear Rick Santorum, to this point completely un-vetted by conservative or traditional media, will have the staying power or the resources to hang with Romney. I thought of half a dozen things off the [...]

Boeing/NLRB Dispute Likely Ends With Machinist Union Settlement

By: Wednesday November 30, 2011 2:15 pm

The Machinists union reached tentative agreement on a new four-year contract with Boeing, in a move that probably ends the dispute over moving a factory from Washington State to South Carolina, which prompted action from the NLRB against what they saw as an illegal labor violation: It is not immediately clear what, if any, impact [...]

Florida Plans to Upend Republican Primary Calendar

By: Wednesday September 28, 2011 9:35 am

Florida is likely to move its 2012 Presidential primary date to January 31, in a move that could scramble the nominating calendar. Under a deal reached last year, four states – Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada – would hold the only sanctioned early primary races in February, with no state allowed to hold [...]

Tea Party-Backed New Hampshire GOP Chair Faces Ouster

By: Thursday August 25, 2011 8:55 am

This is a pretty funny story. So in 2010, Jack Kimball, a tea party leader, took the chairmanship of the state Republican Party in New Hampshire. He immediately plunged the state party into debt, and Republicans kept losing special elections to Democrats. By May, the federal account for electing Republicans had a whopping $1,300 in [...]

New Hampshire Anti-Union Bill Could Pass Over Governor’s Veto

By: Friday April 22, 2011 11:52 am

The anti-union agenda ushered in by Tea Party Republicans shifted from the Midwest to the Northeast this week, as New Hampshire passed a bill that would go much further than Wisconsin, Ohio or other states. It would make New Hampshire the 23rd right-to-work-for-less state in the country, essentially banning union activity and collective bargaining in [...]
