Mike Pence just publicly congratulated Martha McSally for winning the #AZSen GOP primary.

None of the ballot counts have been announced in that race.

Pence deleted the tweet, but here it is. NYT live results showed 0% of AZ precincts reporting when he sent it.
McSally held the lead from day 1, so this was a safe tweet for Pence's team to prepare. But to prematurely fire it off to more than 3 million followers, in a year when election integrity is front-and-center, was a pretty significant mistake. Not a conspiracy, mind you. A mistake.
PS- The app I use for Twitter, called Tweeten, does not show any verification check marks on opened tweets (Ex: The WaPo tweet below). McSally congrats came from Pence's campaign account, which has 3.32 million followers.

Whoa. Michael Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnik, alleges in a sworn statement that she saw Kavanaugh waiting in a line outside a bedroom for his turn to gang rape a young women, and that Swetnik was drugged and gang raped at a party Kavanaugh attended.
More: "I also witnessed efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be “gang raped” in a side room or bedroom by a “train” of numerous boys."
BRK: Potentially the most damning line of the entire affidavit: "have firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting their “turn” with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh."

“This president ... wants everything out, so the American people can make up their own minds,” says WH CoS John Kelly. @_DanMangan and I thought of 9 things we’d like out there, so “the American people can make up their own minds.” 1/10…
1. Trump’s income tax returns. Duh. Because the audit excuse just doesn’t cut it.
