Sandusky, Ohio, Swaps Columbus Day Holiday for Election Day

It may be best known as the home of Cedar Point, the famous amusement park, but Sandusky, Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie, has lately been getting attention for its politics.

City officials voted two weeks ago to swap the Columbus Day holiday with one on Election Day in a move that was intended to affirm the city’s values, but also inserted it into two contentious national debates.

‘We’ve been very surprised by the national attention,’ said Sandusky’s city manager, Eric Wobser, who has since been interviewed by national news organizations like NPR, CNN and The Washington Post.

Supreme Court’s execution decision animates critics on the left and right

The Supreme Court’s late-night, two-paragraph order that sent a Muslim inmate in Alabama to his execution last week has become the court’s most controversial act of the term, drawing intense criticism from the political right and the left.

‘I can’t recall the last time that I was as shocked by a Supreme Court decision,’ said Deepak Gupta, a Washington lawyer who argues before the justices. ‘This decision is indefensible on the merits, and the court doesn’t even bother to try.’

The five justices who allowed the Alabama execution to proceed ‘ Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr., Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh ‘ lifted a stay imposed unanimously by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

Jake Tapper Calls Out Donald Trump Jr.’s ‘Blatant Racism’

The CNN host wants to know why more people aren’t talking about how openly racist the president’s son is.

‘I mean, that is blatant racism,’ said Tapper on CNN’s The Lead Monday afternoon. While it’s possible to ‘explain away that Trump didn’t mean ‘Trail of Tears’ when he said ‘TRAIL,’ the host said that the responses are ‘just racism against Native Americans, and yet in this day and age nobody even says anything about it.’

Later, as the CNN conversation turned to the scandal over Virginia’s Democratic governor and attorney general wearing blackface, Tapper said he worried that story will make people think that ‘all of us, white men, used to dress up in blackface’and it’s not true.’
