I'm suprised Joey's handlers will allow him to hold something as potentially dangerous as a golf club. What if, as he was going up to tee off, somebody heckled him from the gallery. You have secret service agents diving in front of the driver to stop the ensuing calamity. Oh the humanity...

I believe that he rode around in a golf cart, maybe took a swipe at a couple of balls. I don't imagine that Senator Kaufman had very high expectations.

Case #987: You don't need an ID to vote, but....
[AMERICANBANKER] The financial services sector is girding for an extended battle over a legislative proposal requiring banks and other institutions to report customer account data meant to bring in more federal tax dollars.The measure is being considered by politicians as a source of revenue in the Biden administration (aka the Wilmington comorra) ...knaves, footpads, and adjusters employed by the Biden Crime Family. They leave a trail of havoc everywhere they turn their attention, be it the nation's borders, the Keystone XL Pipeline, or epidemics, sometimes on purpose, most times through sheer arrogant ineptitude. They learnt this stuff in college, you know... 's proposed $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation plan. It could result in banks having to report transaction data for any account with at least $600 of inflows or outflows annually.
Bankers and even some consumer advocates have blasted the idea, which first garnered attention this past spring as part of the administration's American Families Plan, as a compliance headache and a privacy nightmare for customers. Financial institutions say they already report reams of data to the Internal Revenue Service.
So the Republicans have already voted in the system. But, hey, you can have a provisional ballot, which, if approved by your Dem-controlled local authorities, can be accepted, but since your ballot's already in, it's just negating this one, so it's like you never voted either way. Really slick.
[BIZPACREVIEW]Reports of voting issues are coming out of Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, in advance of Tuesday’s special recall election when the fate of embattled Governor Gavin can't be Bee'd Newsom ...the Mitt Romneyesque mayor of San Francisco as it transformed itself into Poopville, currently governor of California as it transforms itself into Cinderland... will be decided, leading to confusion and suspicion among some voters.
According to a local news report, residents who went to cast their votes at a Woodland Hills high school were shocked when they were told that they had already voted according to computers.
The problems occurred at an early voting site at El Camino Real Charter High School where several people were informed by staffers that they wouldn’t be able to cast their ballots and were given provisional ballots instead.
Those who were turned away appear to have one thing in common — they are Republicans.
KTLA reports that something "wonky" may be going on in the San Fernando Valley.
Estelle Bender, an 88-year-old West Hills resident told a news hound, "I got there at 10:30, gave her this and she scanned it, and said you voted."
"I said, no I haven’t, and she said this has been happening all morning. The man next to me was arguing the same thing," she said.
She added, "So as I left — I did the provisional ballot — I was really angry, and I saw two women walking toward me as I left and I said don’t be surprised if they tell you you’ve already voted, and she said, they’ve already done that."
When asked by the news hound who she voted for, Bender responded, "well I asked the couple, the young women who I talked to and I said, are you by any chance Republicans?"
"She said yes, and I said so am I, and so are the two friends who had the problem at VFW," she said.
Some Twitter users smelled a rat.
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder responded: "The voters who experienced this issue were offered and provided a provisional ballot — the failsafe option to ensure no one is turned away from voting. Provisional ballots are regular ballots and once the eligibility of the voter is verified, they are processed and counted. After troubleshooting the issue, the equipment at the locations was replaced and voting continued."
Republicans have good reason to be skeptical following the controversy over the 2020 presidential election, one that former President Donald J. Trump continues to contend was rigged, and if there are more voting problems in California, public faith in fair elections will almost certainly be adversely affected.
Governor Newsom is pulling out all the stops as he fights for his political life in an election that is too close to call and will be bringing in President Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S., father of Hunter. He blames Trump for losing Afghanistan.... hoping that he will be able to close the deal with the party faithful.
the mail in ballots were sent to voters in June
it is possible that Bender, age 88, voted by mail and forgot that she had done it
also possible that someone intercepted the mail in ballot and voted for her
I'm not sure if CA requires a drivers license or similar ID with the mail in ballot

Any guess who they already voted for?
The problem wasn't that these people 'already voted'. But that they were informed that they had. I suspect elsewhere the 'second vote' would be simply ignored. It's not like they have a chain of custody or anything.
One thing is certain: He was on the easy ride to Senator/possible POTUS. No more

Should Larry Elders win, he would possibly be a position to appoint a replacement Senator should Feinstein retire or kick the bucket. Dems are going all out to stop Elders. Doesn't appear that Newsom has done much to address California's problems.
[Breitbart] A new book released Monday indicates Biden family corruption schemes sought to enrich son Hunter and brother Jim Biden while Joe Biden was the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Author of The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power, Ben Schreckinger, was told by one of Jim’s former business partners, "Jim’s job is to ensure the lifestyle is good for the family." The method of doing so reportedly entailed Hunter and Jim acquiring a hedge fund, Paradigm Global Advisors, which was founded and run by cocaine addict James Park.
"Jim and Hunter offered to buy the ﬁrm out for $21 million," an offer inspired by Joe Biden’s plan to run for the Democrat "presidential nomination, and his son’s work for a Washington lobbying ﬁrm would be a problem." Hunter was at that time employed at a lobbying firm that would present a conflict of interest for Joe Biden’s campaign.
"Hunter would have his new job, CEO of Paradigm, with a starting salary of $1.2 million," Schreckinger wrote in the New York Post. "His experience in the ﬁnancial sector amounted to a few years on the payroll of a credit-card issuer." Son of The senator From MBNA™
The position as a hedge fund manager reportedly enabled the Biden family to "tap the global demand for business partnerships with the relatives of a powerful American ofﬁcial," Joe Biden.
In order to capitalize on the hedge fund with cash to make profitable acquisitions, Jim reportedly told one of his partners, Anthony Lotito, that he should not worry over raising money.
"Don’t worry about investors," Jim reportedly told Lotito. "We’ve got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden." "We’ve got investors lined up in a line of 747s ﬁlled with cash ready to invest in this company," Jim reportedly added.
The hedge fund was still unsuccessful, despite the appearances Joe Biden helped create to encourage investments, for example, by sending firefighters who wanted to invest, literally into the firm. Ultimately, "Paradigm’s executives searched in vain to ﬁnd an overseas bank or other foreign buyer to take the business off their hands, including in the banking haven of Switzerland."
In the end, no entity would buy the fund from the Biden family, ending the hedge fund’s hopes of success. Not only greedy and corrupt but stupid too.
We have just learned that the Presidency doesn't matter; General Milley could silently take then-President Trump out of the critical decision loop, so presumably the same is being done with Uncle Zhou Xiden.
