    and then they retweeted this thread:

    We can make the next 4 years the most productive for Civil and Voting Rights since 1964-65.

    But only if we win the Senate.

    I have seen a lot of mocking of the Lincoln Project on Colbert Report.


    Sometimes . . . @orion

    You just have to hold your nose.

    Two ideologies can defeat a common opponent.

    Use 'em ... then lose 'em.

    Starting a second project > Trump's election lawyers & their clients


    Here they are targeting Jones Day employees with links to Linked In! Rough stuff:

    Employees of @JonesDay & @PorterWright, do you believe your law firms should be attempting to overturn the will of the American people?https://t.co/Q3NR5xM4tjhttps://t.co/65DOcAUHYb

    Edit to add:

    Defend your democracy:

    1. Created a LinkedIn account.
    2. Message someone who works at @JonesDay or @PorterWright.
    3. Ask them how they can work for an organization trying to overturn the will of the American people. https://t.co/Q3NR5xM4tjhttps://t.co/65DOcAUHYb

    looks like they got into Twitter trouble for activities related to the above

    Lincoln Project Locked Out of Twitter Account for Targeting Trump’s Election Fraud Attorneys

    ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR

    By Rachel Olding , Breaking News Editor & Adam Rawnsley @ DailyBeast.com,Updated Nov. 10, 2020 6:01PM ET / Published Nov. 10, 2020 3:24PM ET

    The Lincoln Project was locked out of its Twitter account Tuesday for sharing the phone numbers and email addresses of two attorneys helping the Trump campaign challenge election results in Pennsylvania. The PAC, started by former Republicans, tweeted the details of Ronald Hicks and Carolyn McGree, from Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, and added, “Make them famous.” ‍But the tweet violated rules on abusive behavior, which include encouraging harassment, the social media company said. “The account owner will be required to delete the violative Tweet before regaining access to their account,” a spokesperson said.

    At least one lawyer at Porter Wright Morris & Arthur has quit in protest of the firm’s decision to file four lawsuits challenging aspects of the election in Pennsylvania. The Lincoln Project has vowed to spend $500,000 to “target” Porter Wright Morris & Arthur and another firm, Jones Day, for representing Trump and the GOP in their voter fraud pursuit. The tweet was deleted later Tuesday but Kurt Bardella, senior adviser for The Lincoln Project said, “The information that was posted came directly from Donald Trump’s own website and press release. Who knew that posting information that was put into the public domain by Donald Trump violated Twitter’s rules?” [....]


    The already put up images of participants who sent in screenshots of their harrassment of Days Jones on Linked In:

    .@PorterWright is this the kind of hard hitting legal expertise your clients typically receive? https://t.co/lbfQ8ifZbK

    retweeted this:

    “Six Jones Day lawyers said... the main goal of the litigation seemed to be to erode public confidence in the election results.” Yet Jones Day continues representing Trump’s campaign, which is raising “legal defense” money in part to retire campaign debt. https://t.co/xROYsyCMMF

    @'ed Donald Trump this:

    . @realdonaldtrump, did you see this? @jonesday says they have nothing to do with you.

    You going to let your lawyers talk to you like that? https://t.co/00PbWjfbc9

    — The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) November 11, 2020

    Donald Trump's encouragement of harrassment of American democracy is undemocratic, potentially dangerous, and counterproductive. Whatever you think of the Administration's legal arguments, targeting the sanctity of our elections is immoral & ineffective. https://t.co/b51wTDs21o

    And there seems to be a third project of identifying who is helping the transition and shaming others who aren't?

    The American Secretary of State just said the loser of the US Presidential election will remain in power. Wrap your head around that. Understand what we are watching. These people have turned their backs on American democracy. https://t.co/ozr9xJcW5F

    Back to the Georgia Senate race:


    Isn't he the one who fucked Stacy Abrams? ballot-wise. Even his mother wouldn't fuck him literally. Oh wait, is that too Southern for this venue?)


    something viral going on that's not Covid


    Interesting calling out of Senator Cornyn as an idiot:




    Note: putting her Twitter address in above tweet means she gets a notification of it and every retweet of it.



    Sigh. The stupidity...


    currently pinned at top of page:



    doing a very serious hit on Jvanka with a twitter thread, zero humor involved:

     

    The families and friends of 250,000 Americans - millions of people - suffer because of Kushner’s inability to recognize his own incompetence, a desire to retain power and punish political opponents. He’s the banality of evil incarnate...2/

    Both Jared and Ivanka are exemplars of dilettantism. They’re the spoiled children of reprobates who achieved little to nothing of their own accord and rose to the highest posts in the land only on the back of nepotism. Cloistered in the WH, they used the levers of government...3/

    To enrich themselves and place themselves in the middle of events they neither understood, nor had any training for. Their ethos: might makes right. Who knows what they’ve done that we may never learn about...4/

    — Reed Galen (@reedgalen) November 25, 2020

     

    Kushner’s briefcase is probably full of national security gold, that he’ll trade for to out whatever sub-par business venture he comes up with next. Ivanka probably stares at the Magic Mirror and asks why no one understands her...5/

    When they’re gone, we should make their worst nightmares come true: They should be ignored by Americans, city and country, rich and poor. They should live out their days in exile at their “cottage” at Bedminster. They deserve nothing less. 6/x

    Still seeing it as a necessary project to needle Trump:

    and to warn others that might copy him:

     


    Ragging hard on the GOP, too:

     


    still needling him--

    Uh, "my news conference went off the rails because I am nuts" is one of those self-owns, as @Timodc notes, where you might not want to keep drawing attention to how nuts you were and that your presser went off the rails https://t.co/hsqaIplyXA
