The state of #CA is using inmate #firefighters to fight the worst fire season in CA’s history. The inmate firefighters – all individuals without records of arson, sexual crimes, escape attempts, kidnapping, gang affiliations, or life sentences - make just $2 dollars a day.
Their families are ineligible for death benefits. CA will save 100 million by deploying inmates to fight the blaze.
What’s another word for free labor? “
Our love is being sent to the families being affected, and all of our first responders! via @reformlajails @_notprisons#SchoolsNotPrisons#OccupyEverything ✊🏾✊🏼✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿 . ✊🏽Partners✊🏽
#ATLANTA (AP) — Stacey Abrams’ Democratic campaign filed a federal lawsuit Sunday asking a judge to delay vote certifications in Georgia unsettled governor’s race by one day and to make officials count any votes that were wrongly rejected.
If successful, the suit would prevent officials from certifying county vote totals until Wednesday and could restore at least 1,095 votes that weren’t counted. The campaign said thousands more ballots could be affected.
Republican Brian Kemp’s campaign didn’t have any immediate comment on the lawsuit, filed over alleged problems in populous Gwinnett and DeKalb counties in metro Atlanta. But Kemp aides previously said Abrams has no path to victory and called her refusal to concede a “disgrace to democracy.” Abrams’ campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo, said the state’s numbers can’t be trusted and that 5,000 votes came in Saturday that previously were unknown. “This race is not over,” she said on a conference call with reporters. “It’s still too close to call.” Abrams hopes to become the nation’s first black woman elected governor, while Kemp is trying to maintain GOP dominance in a diversifying state that could be important in the presidential election in two years.
The campaigns disagree how many votes remain to be counted. But no matter which side is right, it’s clear Abrams is trailing and only a limited number of ballots are left to close the gap.”
