Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Today the House GOP members managed to block Congressman Rush Holt's emergency voting bill with a 239 ┬ľ 178 vote; 2/3 majority was required for passage. It is unknown at this time what the next move will be. Maybe an all-out ban on DREs? The bill would get no where but it would bring the Election Integrity Community back together.

Today is "Match Day" for Sequoia. Can they satisfy Smartmatic with a matching offer that will save themselves from Hart Intercivic? And, if they do will they have enough funds left to continue paying their contracts and employees? ...
