Joe Donnelly’s Senate Seat

Your DGB for this weekend is to help Joe Donnelly keep his senate seat.

The Indiana Senate race is still in the primary stage and it’s as ugly as it is expensive. There are three GOP candidates trying to unseat Donnelly. Here’s a place you can sort through the crazy, if you see fit:

After Tuesday, we’ll know which of these dudes Joe will have to fend off to keep his seat, which is currently considered a polling tossup. Indiana is Trump country and we need to help Senator Donnelly hang on for the next term.

The Handmaids of Idaho and Indiana

3-27AbortionReporting.jpg

Your DGB for today is to donate to the ACLU in Idaho and Indiana as they gear up to fight new abortion reporting laws.

As our daily reminder that Republican men don’t care about women in any capacity other than incubators for babies, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb just signed a law stating that all doctors must file a report that includes all the complications resulting from an abortion. Okay, fine - that makes sense, we guess. What doesn’t make sense is why they need all of this additional information: “the report must detail the date of the procedure, the age and race of the patient, the county and state of the patient's residence, the type of abortion obtained by the patient, as well as the name of the facility where the procedure was received. It would also require information about how many times a patient has terminated a pregnancy, and what their educational level and marital status is.” Failure to report complications would lead to a Class B misdemeanor, which can result in 180 days of jail-time, and up to a $1,000 fine. Idaho Governor Butch Otter signed a similar bill into law last week.

You’re welcome to put the Idaho and Indiana governors on blast on Twitter and Facebook. Feel free to send them an email or give them a phone call too. You can also donate to the ACLU, which plans to fight these laws: the Idaho division of the ACLU https://action.aclu.org/give/support-aclu-foundation-idaho?ms=web__aff_id_menu_donate and the Indiana division of the ACLU https://action.aclu.org/give/support-aclu-indiana.

Your DGB for today is to share this    story    about Mike Pence’s governing abilities across social media.     If you’re like us, you may be looking into our country’s post-Trump future and emotionally eating over the thought of President Pence. Well, we can look to Pence’s governorship of Indiana as an indication of his style of leadership, which is not all that different than his boss’. You see, Mike has a habit of promising people money he doesn’t have, screwing them over, and leaving failed ventures behind. In short, Pence celebrated Indiana’s bicentennial by getting the ball rolling on nearly 60 million dollars worth of fancy plazas and various other commemorative construction plans, promising creative budgeting to fund the projects. The money never showed up, and Indiana lawmakers are now bailing out the former Governor on the taxpayers’ dime. Great job, Mike.      Today being our 200th Grab, we at DGB looked into constructing our own bicentennial plaza, but, like most people who can’t afford something, we didn’t spend money we don’t have.
