Mail in ballots have to be postmarked by eight PM Election Day November 3rd, But they'll be counted as long as they arrive at county elections offices by Friday, November 6th. That's according to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's opinion in a case brought by Pennsylvania Democrats. The decision also says counties can use ballot drop boxes. Governor Wolf says they're reviewing the decision, but overall I think it really makes the access to voting. Better on so I welcome the decision. The opinion also says state law that requires poll watchers on Leigh servant counties where they live is constitutional. The suit also requested if there were errors on a ballot, the voter be contacted to correct, but the court says that's an issue for the Legislature, not for the judiciary. It does say the law's clear, though, if someone fails to use the so called secrecy envelope that inside enveloped the balance returned in that ballot can be tossed and not counted.

How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County

"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs. We've made a lot of efforts over the last two years to really talk to connect with rural voters. And these offices or an opportunity to help us put some roots down in places that we should have been for a long time. As for Democratic strongholds, voters are highly motivated this year, he says, and having a woman of color Kamala Harris on the ticket helps boost energy as well. He adds that with co vid driving unemployment up to 14.8% in the county. That should also give some blue collar voters who backed Trump. Last time. Second thoughts now to the GOP effort stickers these, you know, ceramic coasters styles, you know whatever, and hats. We've just gone through. That's county chairmen viral Salman 73, year old retired school superintendent and farmer showing off Trump merchandise at county headquarters. They even have trump 2020 masks despite the resistance of many trump supporters to wear them. Both Republicans and Democrats are having to find new ways to reach voters amid the pandemic. One GOP tactic Trump Boat Regatta Out on Lake Eerie What Salman says they're still doing is much old fashioned door knocking as ever, maybe more if there's a newspaper box out by the road, put it in, but otherwise they go to the door and knock leaves the bag on the door. Somebody comes They stay, you know, way back and with mask on and so forth. Democrats, meanwhile, are being more cautious on that score. Salman says he thinks voters see Trump as better at rebuilding the economy post pandemic. He acknowledges that Joe Biden with his Pennsylvania roots is a very different candidate than Hillary Clinton. There's no Biden equivalent to the lock her up chant at Trump rallies by. I think he's a nice enough older fellow. But look at his record. We've got enough years We've got four or five decades. Is to look at it. It doesn't compare both of these party chairs, no, that Erie County is in play and even with the pandemic, limiting traditional campaigning and providing a powerful political issue, They insist they can still do what they need to do to reach the voters. They'll need to win. Don Gani NPR NEWS Erie, Pennsylvania.

Trump on ABC News town hall: We will protect coverage for preexisting conditions

"Going to Pennsylvania yesterday for a town hall last night on ABC with Bill Clinton's former communications director, George Stephanopoulos. How did it go? Well, here's an interesting moment. A woman asking a question of the president of the United States gets testy with the president for attempting to answer it. Listen to this. Questions on health care comes from the block. She's from Philadelphia and assistant professor who voted for Hillary Clinton. Last time, Mr President. I was born with a disease called sarcoidosis, and from the day I was born, I was considered uninsurable. That disease started in my skin moved to my eyes into my optic nerves. And when I went to graduate school into my brain when it hit my brain, I was automatically eligible for disability. For the rest of my life. I chose instead to get a bachelor's degree a master's degree a PhD and become a professor. It is great. Except I still have similar health care problems. It cost me with copays. I'm still paying almost $7000 a year in addition to the co pay and should pre existing conditions which Obama care brought into brought to fruition be removed. No with that. Please stop and let me finish my questions there. Wow should then be removed within a 36 to 72 hour period without Medication. I will be dead and I want to know what it is that you're going to do to assure that people like me who work hard we do. Everything we're supposed to do can stay insured. It's not my fault that I was born with this disease is not my fault that I'm a black woman and then the medical community. I'm minimized and not taken seriously. I want to know what you are going to do about that. How about a cocked fist? Basically, I mean, it listened to her. Asked that question he tries to even gently answer it, she said. You stop. Let me finish my questions because it's because she's black and he's white. So he's racist. And so she's confronting the man was. I heard that and I thought that that was so rude and I got tired of and she was just one of several who are like because they're black. It's different for them, you know, and I thought President Trump kept his cool the whole time, and she said, I pay $7000 a year in premiums. I'm like I want your insurance plan because that's far less than mine. You know, she's paying less than I'm paying. And you know she's going to take much more out of the system. Then I dio and I'm pretty sure she doesn't understand how a socialist system works like that. Her brain is filled with all sorts of new media manipulation. I mean, it's just like it's kind of interesting to hear her talk. It's like it's like she's regurgitating a CNN segment. We'll glide. The questions were written down, and I wonder when these people asked these questions if they're written for them or if they've been coached in anyway, because there were several of familiar themes that ran through the questions. It wouldn't be the first time that political activists were either involved or made their way into event like this. The Stephanopoulos did say at the beginning that these were their own questions. These questions were written by these individuals and by the way, we totally appropriate for ABC to check on what the actual question is, from a question or prior to the production of this event, because you create a natural flow of topics that way so you can go to somebody who actually has a question that's relevant, something that was just asked. But you know, it's good to be skeptical, definitely, especially in an environment where Bill Clinton's former communications director is the moderator. That does seem like a good idea. Trump was calm in his answer Here listen to the way he talked about pre existing Titian's So first of all, I hope you are taken seriously. I hope you are and we are not going to hurt anything having to do with pre existing conditions were not going to hurt preexisting conditions, and in fact, just the opposite. If you look at what they want to do, where they have socialized medicine, they will get rid of pre existing conditions. If they go into Medicare for all, which is socialized medicine, and you can forget about your doctors and your plans, just like you could forget under President Obama. Said. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan and that turned out to be alive and instead of 28 different times, at least we have 28 different times. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan. Well, it's not true, but what we're doing is we're going to be doing a health care plan pre existing protecting people with preexisting conditions as an example yourself. It sounds like that's exactly perfect. That's exactly what we're talking about. Yeah, Okay, so and he and he hit that again, like look, any plan I come up with any plan we're gonna work on will replace Obamacare, especially the issues of pre existing conditions. I want to protect him. He's been

"So this was another big story from over the weekend was the announcement by Mike Bloomberg that he's going to spend at least one hundred, million dollars in the state of Florida to help Joe Biden win the state. This Washington Post story says that Bloomberg made the decision last week after seeing those numbers on Florida in seeing that Oh may be Biden's a little underperforming there. It's a little closer than we thought official. Voting starts on September twenty fourth in Florida. So the need to inject real capital in that state quickly is an urgent need. This is Bloomberg Adviser Kevin Cheeky he continues Mike believes that by investing in Florida, it will allow campaign resources in other democratic resources to be used in other states in particular the state of Pennsylvania. So there was always this fear of, Oh, where's Bloomberg's money? He got to speak at the convention, but he's not gonNA fork any over even after he said, he made this promise to keep his campaign employed in put all this money into help be trump. Personally, I was really never worried by didn't didn't really come after Mike to personally at least for too long also because they were both from New York I'm sure trump gave Bloomberg his fair share of grief during the couple of terms that Mike was the mayor of New York. City. You can tell when Bloomberg speaks whenever he goes on TV his ads were also pretty devastating, but you can just feel the vitriol contempt for Donald Trump Mike. Bloomberg is obviously a big money guy. You know he's a billionaire but even he trust Joe Biden more than Donald Trump So that should really be a warning to everyone and as Rick. Wilson always says Mike Bloomberg has more money in his couch cushions than Donald Trump has at all I think alluding to the fact that Donald Donaldson, shady loans, and he's probably not even a billionaire really when you get down to went off topic but thank goodness that is a breath of fresh air some good news for Joe Biden on the money side to with an even better August and by the way, the Biden campaign pointed out that since Calvin Coolidge in nineteen, twenty four, no Republican has won if they don't win Florida. And this year, it really is all about Florida because of trump doesn't get that one he's got to pick up a couple from either Minnesota Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania Arizona in those are looking shaky I mean that's really really generous because he's behind in all of them. So He needs Florida to have any chance and that's a little note to yourself if you're watching. On election night tour as the votes come in the days after in the mail. Well, we're GONNA know pretty quickly because Florida starts counting there's early. So we'll know on election night mostly with the vote is going to be. So a Florida starts going Biden were going to be in really good shape. That's when you know. Okay we might have this one.

The Bonus Army

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit crumb today the mystery of the Bonus Army July twenty eighth nineteen thirty two will mark the eighth anniversary of one of the most controversial protests in US history and yet it remains virtually unknown to most Americans. On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned. To police officers standing next to him and said, I will break the back of the enemy. The attack was ordered by President Herbert Hoover and commanded by General Macarthur Dwight D Eisenhower was MacArthur's aide and Major. General George. S, Patton led the tank unit after donning gas masks the tossed hundreds of tear-gas grenades into the encampment which started raging fires and the assault drove all but the. Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of. Home Service there would be a limit of six hundred, twenty five dollars for overseas service and five hundred for Home Service but the catch twenty two was that it could not be redeemed until nineteen forty five cash quickly dubbed at the tombstone bonus because many of them would be dead before collecting with the Great Depression deepening demands for making an immediate payment we're escalating finally bill was passed, but President Hoover vetoed it in response some three hundred. Veterans led by Ex Sergeant Walter waters boarded a freight train in Portland Oregon in early May nineteen, thirty, two and headed. For Washington DC. Soon, others began their pilgrimage the cat to the capital from across the country and dilapidated buses overcrowded pickup trucks by walking hitch-hiking the vets and their families were in desperate financial shape with overdue bills to pay hunger affections hanging over their heads. They demanded immediate payment of the bonus soon, known as a bonus. Between Seventeen Thousand and twenty five thousand trekkers began arriving on May twenty third nineteen, thirty, two, assuming their demands wouldn't be met anytime soon, they proceeded to set up a long-term presence in order fashion they mapped out streets named for states, Setup Library and post office, a barber shop and a military type sanitation approach appointed MP's to keep order publish their own cap newspaper and even organized evening. Vaudeville shows. Some ten thousand other vets occupied partially demolished government buildings that surrounded the main camp between the capital and the White House. Extremely Patriotic. That's insisted on American flag fly over every tent and Shanti further as Roy. Wilkins than a young reporter with a press pass road. There was only one absentee in the Cap James Crowe get it Jim Crow. The entire massive undertaking was one in which blacks applied shared everything. Together, during world, War One, the military was still segregated as was Anacostia Park when the marchers arrived the vets who had fought a war together deliberately decided to live side by side and set up in the black section of the park. This fact alone may have led some people to fear the movement General Macarthur's most trusted subordinate Brigadier General. George Van Horn Moseley portrayed black and white veterans living together. As proof that Negroes Jewish communist were planning a revolution in truth radicals and Communists were dismissed by the veterans and were never serious element in the movement. The veterans those were still alive didn't receive their bonuses until nineteen, forty five keep in mind that many. World War One vets had died by then and families were not eligible for the bonus. The ravages of the Great Depression continued until World War Two. Today. We have a confluence of factors including the federal government's failure to protect US citizens for the Cobra virus and pandemic machine fiscal austerity in the face of another great depression a newly transparent institutional racism that has provided an unparalleled opportunity to replicate the bonus army's action in the nation's capital this time on an unprecedented scale depth and breadth of

It's available in bookstores today in the UK and Amazon globally. Tony is has done tremendous mono- work and he spent some time at University of Pennsylvania's wharton getting his MBA there the London business school and the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science in electrical engineering. So a tremendous individual and it's a privilege to host them. Here today. Tony thanks for joining the next. So the pleasure to be here, thanks for inviting me to share some of my thoughts and insights with with your audience. Absolutely my friend. So tell me a little bit about your journey. How did you decide on healthcare? So I academically studied electrical engineering and that's actually where I caught the bug Ford being more entrepreneurial minded and how I focused by professional life I used to build and race solar electric race cars really. Little coffee that I helped build up and and I started my career in consulting and during that period was great you know lots of. Ways to learn and be mentally intellectually challenged. But in two thousand, I had just finished doing work in Silicon Valley and that was the first Internet wave and lots of excitement about transformation and as I started business school I really thought about where did I want to dedicate my time and energy in terms of industry focus for several different reasons including personal wants healthcare just jumped out. I love the fact that you can build technology and it helps people live longer have better quality of life I had a couple of. Personal Peoria friends who dealt with health issues. I had an aunt who passed away from kidney failure and so all that just came together for me to say I can wake up every morning. Feeling excited that what I do is helping at least one individual of a better life love that man yeah. It's a compelling reason to choose the field and with your knowledge and background you've been able to make a big impact and so I'd love to hear from you. Tony will you think is should be the big thing. On health leaders agenda and how are you approaching it back when I started my first business in two thousand one, there was a lot of emphasis in terms of whereas the healthcare industry in the US the US at the time and fast forward through time they're still an enormous amount of of focus in the US in the healthcare sector is digital health or health tech has grown the US. Market clearly is an important one, but I'd say that equally as important that on every health leaders mind should be what can they Learn from what's happening in. Asia and Asia whether Asia's an opportunity or not is there are there things that Asia offers in accelerating growth and scale and product that can be leveraged for for their business and couple of facts about Asia that I think are important for plus billion people forty four countries over two thousand languages spoken and normally large region and from an investment perspective this two, twenty, eighteen we saw the Asia approaching the same amount of investment to help tech startups is in the US style so within the next. Eighteen months you'll see that Asia, actual have more capital being deployed from the venture community and startups. So when I say that every health leader medically look at Asia, it's because the region is just is as awards today with with a much greater growth potential in the number of people countries. So there was a book I read recently by Kaifu who was a venture investor, in China, who formerly headed up Google China and used to work. For Apple and driving their early AI, and he doesn't amazing job painting the picture for China's one country when when important region round where they're going with a and how it's different than the US and I think that's the key thing that a takeaway for health for health leaders it's just a different technical environment data standards, and in the way that the tencent and Alibaba by do have changed China much the same way that Google facebook. Changed West is lots of learning that can happen man that's fascinating stuff Tony and folks I forgot to mention to you that Tony Lives and works in Singapore. So he's he's been there for the last five years this time around but definitely, a global health leader focused on Asia that knows the INS and outs. So critical critical piece of of information there everybody. To know. Tony, without a doubt there's there's opportunity over there. The money's flowing over there. Give us an example of of what you've seen is working and creating results. Yeah. The landscape for Asia is complex As I said, there's lots of countries and so before a answered that question, let me give a little bit of context as to how to think about the region. So. One is mentioned China and you can group Hong Kong and China together from thinking about one of six hubs in the region. The other hubs are the Indian subcontinent, which obviously is driven largely by India, but there's other countries their third. It'd be Japan for the be the Korean. Peninsula, which includes South Korea Fifty Southeast Asia Singapore and then six to be Australia New Zealand and I didn't do these in any order of size of just kind of went north to south and regret yeah, an each hub has. Similarities that that make a logical grouping whether it's economic development or cultural lifestyle history or climate.

"Located in Columbia County Pennsylvania. Centralia story began in eighteen. Forty one as coal boomtown community called Bull's head full said was later incorporated as a borough of Centralia and eighteen sixty six by the local coal companies who mind the rich anthracite coal from the area surrounding the small town for the town of Centralia. These rich deposits of anthracite coal proof to be kind of a double edged sword because in one thousand nine hundred sixty to a trash fire in strip mine beneath Centralia. Pennsylvania started burning. The fire has actually been going ever cents causing strange dangerous occurrences in the ground beneath the city. Coal seam fires aren't really anything unusual. I mean they really happen all over the world and our many others in the state of Pennsylvania alone however this fire is still burning under the town and it's been burning for decades before residents really understood what was going on or realized it was dangerous when a twelve year. Old Centralia Resident Todd. Dombrowski fell into a sinkhole that opened up in his backyard and nearly died. Concern finally kicked in and the townsfolk decided. It was getting to be a serious problem. I Guess Oh oh my Gosh I mean think you know. There's a fire under the city. We should leave. Yeah that's by first clue. I mean that's what I think but you know maybe not I guess not so the steam puffing out of the sink holes all over town has toxic levels of carbon monoxide and the ground temperature was up two hundred eighty degrees in some locations. By nineteen eighty-three the government allocated forty two million two relocating residents to safer locations. Most people gladly moved away at this point but a few folks remained. The government fought them in a victim of many from their homes and by October of two thousand thirteen. Only ten people remained in the small town. They settled lawsuits against the government are permitted to remain in the town until they chose to leave. Or you know pass on. But that doesn't mean the environment any safer or less intriguing than it was when the addictions occurred as people from near and far learn the story of Centralia. They come to visit because why not most are pretty Ostra by what they see a grid work of streets without names or without homes remnants of property such as steps to a front door that are no longer there. A few abandoned buildings scattered here and there surrounded by smoldering hillsides in devastated wastelands three cemeteries remaining on the grounds of church. That was torn down years ago. Only a very few occupied homes still remain while no lives have been lost that can be directly attributed to the mine fire what has been lost as the sole of community with any strange or unusual occurrence comes rumors and stories. Centralia is no different in that respect. Walking around the ruins of this modern day. Ghost town gives one the feeling of supernatural forces working underfoot for visitors to the town. Stories arose from these ashes. Some were stories from visitors. Who Left in fear? After thinking they saw a person or thing heard odd sounds and some felt they were being watched others go as far as to say Centralia is the gateway to hell which I imagine is like on. Buffy where she lives in. I think the town is Sonny jail and I think that they call the center of it. The hell mouth but I honestly did not research this. So don't quote me on that but I've never seen the show. So Liz my nerd level. Try but really high up there. I mean it's true. Anyways as you can tell imaginations can run wild as in trail lia becomes a modern day ghost town in the fire encroaches upon the graveyard of the abandoned town. Rumors have circulated that Centralia is haunted. Now sort of recently. The Movie Silent Hill has actually field some rumors. I don't know if you've seen silent hill. Liz Time I you know. I've not seen not my bread and butter kind of movie you for those at home. Who are like me have not seen it. It is a movie by Sony Pictures. That is a story about a small town in West Virginia called Silent Hill. And you know. I know crazy. So when researching the different elements of Silent Hill the screenwriter Roger. Avery actually came across the town of Centralia Pennsylvania Cintra Lia actually planted the seed for what developed into the cinematic version of the town of Silent Hill. The movie invites the audience to explore. Their fears of the unknown yet. Silent Hill is a horror film and a work of fiction. So you know it's sort of based off Centralia but not directly like there's your aren't there like cannibals since silent hill or something. I really don't remember it's been born enough. I don't think game like a video game now is it. I don't know I think so. I had no idea just goes to show how much I don't know about Louis. Well same I stayed away from it when it came..

That's why navy's attended a half point favorite because uniform. Because I'm telling you guys are with Navy I elect navy. Let's take a look at our blimpworthy player. Navy quarterback Malcolm Perry presented by Goodyear. Now compare leads. All AW BS quarterbacks in rushing one hundred thirty six point four yards rushing per game needs just sixty nine yards. Set the navy all time record for total offense in a season currently held by Woolworth Twenty Sixteen fellas defining moment from out compared. I don't know if you remember this. When he's sixteen was a freshman he was actually in the stands? Like eating liquorice liquorice licorice you. He was sick he'd played in a JV game. There are injuries on the navy team. He gets pulled out of the stands ends up playing in the game. The third quarter all the fourth year he becomes about Jalen hurts like last year. The movie. Yeah that should be a move exact. Let's let's talk about the College Football playoff defining moments for those four teams David. How about some Lsu you know listen? We needed offense was going to be new and it was going to be more innovative. least we heard about it all all off season. Well you gotTa Show Me First Game Austin Game Day. They're big time moment. Joe Boroughs throwing the ball all over the yard and guess what big Tom on third and seventeen late in the game. Most formative drills Dez. You run the ball especially Lsu by the way run the ball. Run the ball. Run the ball. Joe Bro gets pressured they blitz right and his face. He delivers that strike and then going on by the way when they beat Alabama. I think that moment proved to everybody on the team. Not Joe Borough. Everybody was like wait a minute riddick. We finally beat them. Do that had been tormenting US absolutely straight tormenting. Yeah beat them. Took care of business and it was good to go to win that game and Tuscaloosa was a straight dog dogfighting. They handle their business. But how about Ohio. State the Buckeyes. They would just steamrolling people all season long but then it had a home. Game Against Penn State Penn state starting quarterback. Sean Clifford get hurt. We'll let us came in the game. The third quarter put seventeen points up in the shoe on the Buckeyes. I was their game. They will do. The whole crowd was silent. That's when the Buckeyes had to hunker down. Forget early in the game to Justin feels fumbled. The ball can take a tumble but they hunkered down. They get focused and they came back a okay beat Penn State by eleven points. I thought that was a defining moment in number three Clemson. They're defining moment everybody know they have pretty much. What do you call it type schedule when you play like a bunch of this week teams cupcake will? ACC Today played North Carolina North Carolina that only that pushed washed the Tigers to the brink in almost won that game fell two point conversion they didn't convert and ended up losing by one point.

"Take part about from when you go about this way move that for not blow the okay today we got Jeff on the show Jeff how you doing man on going great how are you doing good man so you emails a little while back and you had a big foot experience here Pennsylvania actually have a few that you'd like to talk about and I'm always up to here hiring people stories about bigfoot Pennsylvania since in Pennsylvania as well and actually you're not too far from me so but we'll keep my my exact location between you and I so we won't we votes out the whole world but if you could just kind of walk into your first experience I know it happened a while ago and stuff but it's very interesting it was a while ago but I you know I remember it like it was yesterday this was back in two thousand two and happened in lycoming county Pennsylvania on the West branch of the Susquehanna River I was going on a little like over a couple of you know like a weekend camping trip with a friend and while there he was going to teach me how to flint nap make arrowhead it's you know democracy and we and while there we would walk the fields at the bottom of the mountain the they were freshly ploughed fields we look through those fields round heads I collect Indian artifacts so that was the whole reason to go there I was I was about to deploy with my National Guard unit and he thought I needed some time off before we went to just have some fun stop worrying about being deployed and getting all your finances in order and all that things to go along with that so you know that's that's was the whole plan of going there I wasn't not a a big foot believe or at the time nine or one of the researcher people or anything like that had nothing to do with bigfoot I'm a hunter and and I liked be in the outdoors ally and I've never ever even thought about it before this happened so anyway the the first day was very relaxed and we had a lesson in and then it was great up until the moment when I put inch long sliver of Obsidian into the palm of my hand cut myself pretty severely so that was the end of the lesson for the day they I should have had stitches but he put a butterfly on it and we you know decided that we'd walk these fields look for some artifacts it was early summer late spring somewhere where the corn was maybe knee high and one field and maybe you know two three inches and the other field that we were looking at so you know we walked the field and I found a couple of broken arrowheads nothing special and I was getting really bored so I had looked at the top of graphical map and I've seen that there was a creek coming into the river just down from this camp site a little bit and I thought you know woke up that creek I'm really good at finding along creek beds I you know I've found hundreds arrowheads outweigh so he he agreed go up you never did that before and he was he was just starting to collect arrowheads at the time but he was really good at making them it really good you know he gets two hundred dollars a lesson for this to teach people how to do this so it was interesting and he was interested in the real artifacts so we kind of hit it off and up this valley we go in search these artifacts now not exactly sure how far we were up the valley Ali from looking at the top of graphical map I think he got he got tired maybe maybe a little less than a mile up the creek he got tired it was really hot that day was probably like ninety degrees and I had my canteen award US and he probably didn't have anything I'm not sure if he did or not but I know he was getting dehydrated and he had enough we weren't finding anything I mean not a up to not flake nothing and usually you can you know you can you can find artifacts on any creek in Pennsylvania because the Indians you know used every good source of water you know that's that was where they camp close to them in their hunting camps villages were down the bottom suits we weren't finding anything he got tired of that and he he said I wanna go back to the camp and make something to eat and Blah Blah Blah so I said all right I'm I'm pretty determined to find something I said I want to get to the head of this creek 'cause I know within fifty meters of every creek you know where the spring is where I comes out of the ground there's always an artifact camp there there's always an Indian camp there or you can always find artifacts almost every spring and Pennsylvania so I was determined to find the head and I wasn't sure where it was 'cause you know WANNA topple map it's not always accurate where the blue line starts and stops you know some a lot of times what it shows you on the map the springs actually the head is actually a little further than what the Blue Line is so I'm going up the valley and it just started getting so thick he turned back and I was alone and it just started getting sick or Acre and sicker with Rhododendron it eventually became like a prison where I was stepping over through under over trying to get through this stuff trying to stay on the creek bed became impossible and I got to you know and I was hearing things at the time but I just you know I just thought you know wrote it off says dear dear kicking up every now and then this is a good thicket I might see a bear and here you know anything but it didn't really bother me because like hunted bear on deer and I've seen them you know up close you know there was never never really any concern you know the they don't want you they run away and you know there's no really reason to be afraid in the woods normally so I'm driving on like I always do you know push it on the creek looking at every sandbar trying to find an airhead couldn't find anything and eventually I started you know like I said it was getting so thick I was just become a struggle and this led the last sandbar I checked had crushed aluminum can on it I don't know if there's a beer can or can't really remember anymore but I thought Oh Jeez this creek must go all the way up to the highway and go underneath it to have picked up that beer can consist was a pretty pristine area. It's pretty remote so I'm thinking and I can here a highway way off in the distance it sounded like it was maybe two miles away but you can hear tractor-trailers pretty far when you're in the mountains so I'm not prepared to go that far only have maybe half a Cantina water left and and maybe one little snack in my in my little day pack so I'm going to get out of this mess that I mean I'm climbing through and struggling to get through this Rhododendron it's just a tangled mess horrible so I I remember seeing on the the topographical map that there was a a logging road to my left up out of the up out of the creek area up at work levels off a little and that's what I was GonNa do I was going to make my left turn out of there just go up hill until I got out of the sick and to that logging you're GonNa go back down the mountain and go home well I got up out of the the creek area and on the logging path and and right there there was a a little area where you could see when they blasted.

"All right. Give us the update here. Yeah. We I covered this case back in episodes, one forty six and one forty eight involving a state case captioned league of women voters versus Pennsylvania. And so this involves the Republican twenty eleven redistricting plan, which was challenged in the Pennsylvania supreme court under Pennsylvania's constitution. Thus circumventing the issues that we talked about in the last segment of you know, alternately putting a highly political issue before what is likely to be a partisan supreme court. And and so so let's talk about that a little bit Pennsylvania is a parody Matic example of packing and cracking. Right. We have a blue state that. It is a swing state and since twenty eleven there have been three congressional elections Pennsylvania has eighteen congressional districts. And so, you know, blue state slightly democratic maybe fifty to forty eight right? How do you think Pennsylvania's eighteen districts were have gone in the past three elections? Well, going with your math. I'm Jay, I'm I'm gonna just I've I'll say nine and nine because it's a swing state, and I'm guessing. Yeah. The representation will be roughly what the public is voting so nine and nine. Yeah. Yeah. Thirteen to five Republican and that other two five result. That thirteen to five result persisted from twenty twelve right, which was a pretty blue year. Right. That was the Barack Obama's reelection in which he carried Pennsylvania by nearly double digits in twenty fourteen despite the fact that the democratic share of the vote dropped off by six percent still thirteen to five Republican and then again in twenty sixteen when Donald Trump carried Pennsylvania still thirteen to five Republican. Well, I'm no math democratic sounds to me like something is wrong. Yeah. And and what's wrong is that the Republican plan tax all of the democratic voters into those five districts such that the Democrats have won those five districts by an average by an average vote share of overset. Seventy five percent and twenty twelve and twenty sixteenth. Yeah. So if you're thinking about, you know, how do you make sure that democratic votes are wasted? Yeah. You you put all the Democrats into these districts where Democrats are going to win no matter what? And you're just piling on huge margins thus enabling Republicans to win the remainder the rest of the state with under sixty percent of the vote. So this is the classic red map formula, and in and in fact, red map was used in Pennsylvania and so- league of women voters common cause a bunch of plaintiffs sued to invalidate they entire math. And interestingly again, as we as we flagged from the beginning of the second, they sued under article one section five of the Pennsylvania state constitution, which says elections shall be free. And equal. No power civil or military shell at anytime interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage. So that sidesteps, right. We've talked about it is pending before the supreme court does partisan gerrymandering violate the due process and equal protection clauses of the US constitution, Pennsylvania has its own constitutional provision that are on. Sorry. Remember because there's there's so much bad Republican gerrymandering everywhere. This was that one weird trick that was the kind of positive news on how they were going to keep it at the state level. That was the state. That's exactly right and good and the state supreme court. Yeah. So not only did the state supreme court rule that this twenty eleven plan that partisan gerrymandering, violates that provision of the Pennsylvania state constitution. But ultimately after remand ING and trying to get the Republican legislature to redraw the map in a way that was fair and the Republican legislature making, you know, tiny little marginal changes, ultimately, the Pennsylvania state supreme court redrew, the district's themselves they hired an outside expert. I mean, they, you know, the judges didn't sit down and do it. But the court commissioned an independent expert to redraw the districts to make them more fair..

"If each date you know that govern game exactly and the actual process itself. So the two thousand and ten election was used not just in terms of the bringing the tea party to power, the ideological conservatism, that it represents go headlines. Yeah, just to piggyback on that. Just one thing that I think we saw with Pennsylvania's, you know, you know, one of the most agree GIS gerrymandered maps in the country. We see one party control, right? We see that the Republicans controlled the house, the Senate, the governor's office, and you know, they made the laws. They made the rules and there was no really check combined. Democrats would do. That's being nonpartisan ab- now you're not being partisan, but the Democrats have done that. So already pointed out, there's a district in Maryland. Yeah. So this is not partisan both parties. We'll do this. Well, that's exactly the point I wanted to go to because if regardless of party, if the party has the power, it seems very natural. In terms of American politics try to consolidate that power, but but you know, when Republicans do it and there have they have done here in Pennsylvania. Democrats have done it elsewhere. People keep talking to me about Maryland, California, back in the eighties and nineties. But the point is, is that is there a way to come up with a fair system that does mostly remove politics from the equation? And and here let me just let me just do some limit. Let me play for you a little bit of tape here. This is again Valentino degeorge. Oh, he's the GOP chairman of Pennsylvania, and he basically just takes. He takes issue with that entire question because he says it's perfectly fine. With legislators, creating districts, and he really opposes the idea of any other systems, specifically, an independent citizens commission, which we'll talk about here in a second. He poses other systems to draw future congressional maps, and here's what he said. So legislators are in the best position to draw lines and look the end of the day, heaven forbid, politics should enter into a piece of legislation that draws part, you know, political maps stunned over the country. Democrats join maps to their favors in other states, look Marilyn. So you know, this is nonsense. This was part of a Barack Obama, Eric Holder, fair districting plan. They called it to take back congressional seats and they've done it here in Pennsylvania. That's fell to Georgia, Pennsylvania GOP chair. So Lindsey, Lazar ski. He's he basically says, we know the state the best we should draw the maps. But there is this other idea about an independence, it isn't commission. What would that look like in Pennsylvania? I just have to say, I love that operatic music behind veils. And it was. It was a Columbus Day festival in Philadelphia. Taking me there to south Philly. So you know a group in Pennsylvania, fair district's PA for a number of years now they've been trying to. Change the Pennsylvania constitution and to implement an independent citizens commission that would actually draw the lines and they've modeled this after California, and this is really a grassroots organization. You see them at street fairs. You see them at avent's canvassing and you know they, they're asking the legislators to basically vote against their interests to form this commission. As you pointed out it, there is a such a commission in California made up of appointed independent citizens. And I think some several other couple other states in the west have similar similar commission. So do they work though? Have they created fairer districts if you talk to the people on the commission? Yes. If you talked to voters. Yes. I think a key difference between Pennsylvania and California is that in Pennsylvania, there's no referendum. So basically to get that process in place, the state legislature would have to. Pass a constitutional amendment, and then it would go to the voters in a referendum, and there's no guarantee. There's no guarantee that an independent commission itself would be truly independent. By somebody that that that's or hold positions by virtue get on get on the commission by virtue of a position they already hold or you could have state lawmaker leaders appoint a few. You could have different groups. Yeah, it it can get. It can get complicated, but here's what's fascinating until Baker versus car supreme court decision..

"From WB you are Boston NPR I'm Meghna Chuck Roberti and this is on point. We've got a special broadcast today from the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia, and we're in Pennsylvania because yes, the keystone state is key to American politics. It's a microcosm of the country as a whole populous with a mix of urban and rural voters. The electorate here is pretty evenly split between Republicans and Democrats. You'll remember that President Trump won Pennsylvania by less than forty. Five thousand votes out of the six million ballots cast here in two thousand sixteen, so it would make sense to expect that same even split in the state's congressional delegation, half democrat half Republican, but that is not the case. The GOP holds thirteen out of Pennsylvania's eighteen congressional seats in part because Pennsylvania had one of the most extremely gerrymandered congressional maps in the country will that change this year. The state supreme court struck down the old district map and. Suddenly more than a half dozen of Pennsylvania's congressional races are newly competitive, and that could mean major change in the midterm elections. So this hour on point Pennsylvania's adventures in redistricting and the impact it could have on American politics. Now we've been spending several days here in Pennsylvania, getting a sense of the districts old and new. So I wanna start today in the states old. Seventh district in a parking lot in king of Prussia, Pennsylvania. So this district was known as goofy, kicking Donald, a strange name, but that's what the extremely gerrymandered shape of the old. Seventh district looked like a Disney brawl. We're standing outside creeds, seafood and steaks squeezed between the Pennsylvania turnpike and county line expressway. And we're here with Kate. Doyle Montgomery County lead for fair districts, Pennsylvania, a nonpartisan group that's pushing for permanent change in the state's districting rules. This parking lot is little infamous when it comes to the previous seventh district, Pennsylvania, it is connecting point. It is approximately one hundred and seventy meters long or about five hundred fifty feet. The old seventh spread along contorted twists and turns for some fifty miles from the Pennsylvania suburbs to Amish country. But this pinch point you sane bolt could cross the seventh district in about sixteen seconds, correct? So it's it's really just as wide as a parking lot. I mean, why did they do that? It has to be contiguous. In other words, no matter how strange the shape the district has to be a single unit that has been a long standing rule in Pennsylvania, says, fair districts, rich Rafferty, who's also with us Rafferty and dole both emphasized that gerrymandering has been practiced beloved by both parties, but the huge difference. Now, the availability of voter records and vast amounts of consumer information. Rafferty says the combination of big data and sophisticated mapping technology allows district lines to zigzag from house to house making certain seats so safe. The opposition simply falls.

"This district will not even exist by the end of this year because of redistricting in pennsylvania and yet both republicans and democrats are spending so much money to win this seat so scott y yes so let's start with the fact that this should not be this close this district opened up back in the fall when republican tim murphy had to resign because of a scandal murphy a long time anti abortion advocate text messages emerged where he was encouraging someone he was having an affair with two go get an abortion very quickly resigned in the wake of those tax becoming public and i remember writing in the story about his resignation don't expect this seat to have a competitive special election not only that president trump waited by 20 points uh democrats didn't even field a challenger against murphy the last few elections and here we are today things changed on that front hashtag 2018 yes so conner lamb is the democrat running against rick secong whose republican lamb is a younger guy he's 33 years old he's got a really good resume he's a marine and he worked as a federal prosecutor and that is the stuff that a good campaign ad is made of a he's writing as rick's akhoon who's a longtime state representative who republicans have been pretty grumpy about the way he's campaign this race they feel like israeli let lamb into the race and uh we'll like you said it's it's really close in a district that republicans are freaking out about because it is so close so is this the traditional like oh a candidates not doing well so let's blame the candidate thing or is sick from what you've seen in you've covered a lot if campaigns and candidates is he really that lacklustre on the trail compared to lam little bit of both little bit of both i think what has really scrambled this race is that the backgrounds of the two particular candidates are allowing the democrats to run a working class.
