Today our urgent need remains a clean DACA renewal, and if you’ve been reading my emails, you’ve been making the calls. If not, call now. Just say: ‘I’m for a clean DACA renewal’. while the Senate is working on immigration. .
Here’s the bottom line: If we don’t figure out how to destroy the Republican majorities in the House and Senate, our country is screwed and we’re screwed. And, the Russians are working against us. I’m not being paranoid when I suggest that our little corner of the world, with a vulnerable Steve Knight holding on where Hillary eked out a win, will be the focus of interference if it is going to happen anywhere. We have to keep our eyes and ears open for leadership in this area, so please let me know if you hear of anything or have any ideas. I’ll hop on board any potentially effective program, just like I would have been looking for submarines on our coast during WWII. Meanwhile, our friends a Ventura Indivisible are on the same page –
VOTER PROTECTION and more – “We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated.” https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/russians-penetrated-u-s-voter-systems-says-top-u-s-n845721

#1 – Support the DETER Act: Defend Our Elections from Foreign Interference
With the 2018 midterm elections only 9 months away, it is urgent that stronger security measures are put in place to protect the integrity of our elections from foreign interference. The DETER Act (Defending Elections from Threats by Establishing Redlines Act) (S. 2313/ HR 4884) will require monitoring, reporting, and imposing of severe penalties and sanctions on foreign governments that engage in actions interfering in our elections.
Minimal Script: I’m calling to ask that Representative Knight. co-sponsor the bipartisan DETER Act (HR 4884)
And, make the same calls to our Senators. Say:
