More than twice as many people have died in ICE custody this year than last year, in part due to the immigration agency’s response to COVID-19. 2020 has been the deadliest year for people in immigration detention since 2006.#COVID19NC #ncpol #nchealthhttps://t.co/9NVOyWd4G8

No matter how miserable our own situations are in this pandemic, we can't forget about these families, who are being punished harshly simply for existing.

Yeah, I got one a few weeks ago that was legit. My understanding is, when they first started sending them out they were pre-populated with certain information that was supposed to be filled out by voters themselves. The newer ones don't have that, so you can use them.
#Starlink initial testing showing promise to deliver quality broadband to rural and hard to reach areas. #NCGA majority passed a provision sponsored by @JasonSaine97th to support deployment of low latency satellite broadband in NC. #spacex #ncpol https://t.co/5qnLYZQTPM

Oh dear god in heaven. First it was Solarbees, then repopulating streams with mollusks (that had been killed off by pollution) to improve water pollution, and now it's Elon Musk's Space Junk. Just run the frickin' real (on the ground) infrastructure for broadband. It ain''t rocket surgery.

You really are a f**king idiot, you know that? College students are major vectors of this pandemic, they go to the same grocery stores we do. And the less "severe" their condition, the more they get around. Dog save us from stupid people...
Based on the Charlotte city attorney’s emails, he wants more discretion in deciding whether to investigate council members... which would suggest the policy was written to take all of the discretion away from a city employee asked to investigate their bosses #ncpol https://t.co/uZrT1LCKds

No, it doesn't "suggest" that, Nick, you're suggesting it. Just like when you (literally) chase somebody down in a parking lot to get a quote. Just because somebody avoids you, it doesn't necessarily follow they have something to hide. They might just be avoiding you.
Eight months ago, I began hearing concerns about sexually aggressive behavior from @CawthornforNC, who is a candidate for Congress. Multiple women came forward to share these stories.

This dude is a sexual predator:
Here’s what McDaniel remembers: The friend’s house was a 15-minute drive away, but Cawthorn pulled onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and took what seemed to be a longer route. She asked, “Where are we going?” Cawthorn said he wanted to go stargazing. During the drive, he asked why she seemed not to like him. McDaniel responded, “I don’t like you because I think you’re a huge player.” He asked other personal questions: whether she was a virgin and why she was with her current boyfriend.
Here’s what else McDaniel remembers: he talked about his genitalia and said he could still have fun. Cawthorn pulled off the road and into the first overlook on the parkway. He leaned toward her seat, reached for her face with both hands, pulled her in, and kissed her. McDaniel resisted: “No, I have a boyfriend.” Cawthorn persisted. He told her nobody had to know. He kissed her again. She pushed him away with two hands to his chest. She turned and tried to grab the passenger door handle. At that moment the lock snapped shut, but at the same time he assured her that they would head to the party.
McDaniel remembers him then leaning in for another kiss, putting one hand around her head and his other on her left thigh: “I felt, like, pressured to give in to it because he started being aggressive, and he is a strong guy. He had buff arms and worked out his upper body a lot.”
People like that don't change, at least not for several years. Dude is only 25, and he could be grabbing asses in Congress for decades. Just, no.
I call on the National and state Democratic Party to demand protesters stop harassing and threatening public officials and their families at their homes! Protesters at the personal residences of Tom Tillis and Louis DeJoy is inexcusable and a threat to all of us!

I can't help but laugh when I remember Pat McEnergy running from protesters in DC and ducking inside some random door. That look on his face was pure shit-your-pants terror. I know, I'm a bad man.
Meanwhile in North Carolina, @RoyCooperNC still holds businesses hostage. New York was hit much worse than North Carolina.@TeamForestNC @DanForestNC #NCPol #NCGov #DanForest2020 https://t.co/vRW8igowiZ

New York has cut it's COVID 19 cases by about 90% since April, while NC is still about 1,000 cases (per day) higher than it was in April. If this is the kind of logic Dan Forest supporters exercise, I'm surprised y'all don't constantly fall into abandoned wells hoping for Lassie to show up.
A spin exercise from @NC_Governor in absolving him of blame for creating massive education inequities by ignoring the near-consensus opinion of experts that in-person instruction for kids is critical.
Typical of the "leadership" coming from the executive branch. #ncpol https://t.co/BM6uNk89Yh

Of course in-person instruction is better, but you don't send kids to school when there's a killer on the loose in your neighborhood. And make no mistake, Coronairus is a killer. 263 have died in Mecklenburg, 182 in Wake, and 158 in Guilford. Also, since when did climate change deniers start believing in "consensus"? Did I miss something, something that begins with "h" and ends with "ypocrisy"? Thought so.

I support Moms 100%. We can't get through a single day without some child being shot by a gun some idiot left lying around, and those "thoughts and prayers" are about to get on my last nerve.
We had to make the font smaller to make room for all the things Tillis hasn't commented on.
Where’s Tillis’ response to reports of Iranian bounties on U.S. troops and reports of proposed cuts to servicemembers’ health care? #ncsen #ncpol pic.twitter.com/7kbEOd5ItY

I really do like this, but please (please) proofread your added commentary before posting. Those are Russian bounties, not Iranian.
On that disciplinary note, here's your Onion:
