Thank You, Women and Minority Voters

Thank you, women and minority voters.  You’ve protected the Constitution.  Without you, we’d be sunk.

CNN Exit Polls, President 2012

From CNN Exit Poll reports, via Daily Kos. (In other news, Worst Candidate Ever gets 43.6%, expected to rise to 44-45% with provisional ballots.)

Luckily for Democrats, women are the majority and the proportion of minority voters is rising.  Now if we can just actually let people vote, within a reasonably small amount of hassle, if they’re qualified to vote….

Oh — and congratulations to Sharon Quirk-Silva — who looks to have won the 54th Democratic seat in the Assembly, giving (if Rudy Salas holds on in AD-32) Democrats a sort of supermajority.


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
