Let's wish those who are going to Charlottesville the best. They'll be providing vital coverage of another hate rally.

So it appears that Manafort's associate illegally used a "straw purchaser" to buy $50k worth of Trump inauguration tickets for at least 2, probably 3, pro-Russia Ukrainians.
And note this, uh, fairly large sum of mystery money.

NEW at @readsludge: Dem @SenatorCarper is sponsoring bills to help w/ the opioid epidemic, but he's received campaign donations from the very companies his state is suing over their role in the crisis.…
@readsludge @SenatorCarper Carper's opponent @KerriHarrisDE tells me Carper should return these donations.

Harris, working w/ @popdemoc, helped @SenWarren write the CARE Act, which would massively fund addiction treatment. Harris tells me opioid epidemic should be treated as public health crisis.
@readsludge @SenatorCarper @KerriHarrisDE @popdemoc @SenWarren UPDATE: In response to my article, @KerriHarrisDE formally calls on Carper to return opioid donations & for his wife to divest from pharma companies.

Here's another @Ocasio2018-endorsed progressive who won who, like Rashida Tlaib, doesn't fit into the widespread media narrative that AOC's favored candidates are all losing & socialism is dead, so don't expect many outlets to acknowledge this.
I seriously heard respected reporters write, and say on pubic radio, that no AOC-endorsed candidates won last Tuesday. Welp, two won.

Yes! Great news about 9th St. in Park Slope, Brooklyn, where the city is installing *protected* bike lanes on both sides.

Now, do this on EVERY STREET. Someone shouldn't have to die on each street for the city to make that particular street more safe.…
—The protected lanes are only protected if there are physical barriers between cars & bike lanes, so let's hope they do this.

—Look at how absurd the "existing" arrangement is. Cyclists have to bike with cars swerving through our lane in order to park.

—h/t @sydneyp1234
Imagine designing that arrangement, with layers of bureaucratic approval, and thinking it'll keep cyclists safe.
