"When Santos ran for Congress in 2020, he listed a salary of $55000. His most recent financial disclosure shows a salary of $750000."

When you make 750K USD, you can afford it..

Any bets McCarthy will get it on the 13th round? 14th? Whatever he is handing out, it's working. I suspect Boebert, Gaetz, and I don't know who the other die hards will be are going to hold out in the final round.

Not having money to pay staffers, and everything else might be a cold shower reality check.

Cartel heavy weapons are crazy. They’ve been firing .50 cal weapons at aircraft and firing off RPGs in the city

Is that surface stable enough to fire that weapon accurately?

So he riled them up and then didn’t lead them in the charge to overthrow the government? Instead he left it to this guy?

They are voicing their displeasure of the 50.9 to 49.1 defeat.

Worse things happened when two other 70 somethings clashed in a 51 vs 46 contest. America inspired the world.

"Mr Bannon told his podcast listeners: 'All hell is going to break loose tomorrow.' He has been sentenced to four months in prison for refusing to comply with an order to testify in front of a Congressional committee that investigated the attack but is free pending an appeal.

Along with other prominent Trump advisers who spread fraud rumours, Mr Bannon was unrepentant on Sunday, even as footage emerged of widespread destruction in Brazil.

'Lula stole the Election… Brazilians know this,' he wrote repeatedly on the social media site Gettr. He called the people who stormed the buildings' Freedom Fighters'."

Does that mean he will go to jail in Brazil too?

"Vanessa Viana, 45, an Uber driver from Sao Paulo, waited all morning on Tuesday and said she was planning to stay as long as it takes to see him.

She's been sitting on the pavement across the home, sheltering from the sun in some shade. Her friends came this weekend and took some pictures with Mr Bolsonaro, so she wants one too, she said.

Wondering if she'd see him today, she approached the home to speak to one of the security guards sitting outside, but walked back with no word of Mr Bolsonaro's whereabouts.

'I believe in what he believes,' she said. What she doesn't believe in, she adds, is the election results that made Lula president for a third time.

'I can't believe someone would vote for a guy who went to jail.'"

Brazilians have the most complicated names. I wonder if he has a short form or diminutive nickname or just initials like my co workers.

"According to the text of his ruling, Justice Alexandre de Moraes granted the request from the prosecutor-general’s office, which cited a video Bolsonaro posted on Facebook two days after the riot. The video claimed Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva wasn’t voted into office, but rather was chosen by the Supreme Court and Brazil’s electoral authority.

Prosecutors in the recently formed group to combat anti-democratic acts argued earlier Friday that, although Bolsonaro posted the video after the riot, its content was sufficient to justify investigating his conduct beforehand. Bolsonaro deleted it the morning after he first posted it.

He has taken up residence in an Orlando suburb since leaving Brazil in late December and skipping the Jan. 1 swearing-in of his leftist successor, and some Democratic lawmakers have urged President Joe Biden to cancel his visa."

But when he entered the country he was President.

If the Biden administration or whomever does the President's PR had been fully transparent and released everything all at once this would have probably blown over in one or two media cycles. Instead there's a little bit of news every day to keep it alive creating this justified or unjustified perception of subterfuge.

"Peña lost his state House challenge to incumbent Democrat Miguel P. Garcia by 5,679 to 2,033, or 74% to 26%."

If you're shooting your opponents when losing by 51%, what would you do if you lost by 1%?
