Lawsuit Targets Absentee Voting in NY with COVID Excuse Before November Elections; Republicans seek to harness enduring parental anger over COVID closings and ‘woke’ lesson plans, and other C-Virus related stories

Lawsuit targets absentee voting in NY with COVID excuse before November elections:
New York Republicans say COVID-19 should be no excuse for voting by mail in the Nov. 8 election.
A new lawsuit seeks to overturn state laws passed by Albany Democrats allowing New Yorkers to cite fear of coronavirus infection in order to vote by mail in midterm elections that could decide control of Congress while invalidating absentees already cast.
The legal challenge filed in Saratoga County State Supreme Court by the state GOP and Conservative Party comes one year after voters rejected a proposed amendment to the state constitution that would have allowed no-excuse absentee voting in New York.
“Once again, Democrats have thwarted the Constitution and the will of the voters in their attempt to rig the election in their favor,” state Republican Chair Nick Langworthy, who is also running for Congress for a Southern Tier-based seat, said in a statement.
As we did with their illegal gerrymander scheme, we are taking their unconstitutional laws to the courts to protect voter integrity,” he added about a successful legal effort earlier this year that broke a so-called “Hochulmander” of the state congressional map approved by Albany Democrats. --->READ MORE HERE

Republicans seek to harness enduring parental anger over COVID closings and ‘woke’ lesson plans:
Parental backlash over COVID-19 school closings, mask mandates and curricula laced with critical race theory and LGBTQ issues has kept education at the forefront in the midterm elections this year, even though it isn’t always at the top of the polls.
It has been nearly a year since Republican Glenn Youngkin seized on parental fury over shuttered schools and “woke” lesson plans to help him win an improbable victory over Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor’s race.
Ten months later, many parents remain angry about K-12 public education, and it is factoring into decisions they will make at the ballot box in November.
Joseph Sparks, who sends his six children to Hilliard City Schools in Columbus, Ohio, told The Washington Times that his school district has steered clear of the most socially liberal curricula that have alarmed many parents, but he fears they will eventually work their way into his children’s lesson plans.
“It seems like it’s just a matter of time,” Mr. Sparks said.
He said he is not thrilled with Senate Republican candidate J.D. Vance but is leaning toward voting for him over Democrat Tim Ryan in their battleground race because he is worried about his children’s education.
“There is absolutely no reason a child should know their teacher’s sexual orientation or proclivity,” Mr. Sparks said. “Schools used to teach kids how to think, engage their curiosity without telling or forcing them to believe one way or the other. Now it’s an attempt to teach them what to think, and anything that deviates from the proscribed doctrine is to be attacked.” --->READ MORE HERE
