Both conventions are now over and the sprint to the finish line begins — Trump should immediately pledge to use the huge fence the DNC used to try and keep people out of their “bridges, not walls” convention to reinforce the border. There are 99 days until the 2016 election, and just over 170 days until Obama issues a lot of pardons on the way out.

Sunday open thread time, with a few kickstarters…

Here’s your “Democrat found to have broken federal law but won’t be punished in any way” story of the day:

The Federal Election Commission, which considered legal action against former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for joking about fundraising, won’t punish Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for admitting to violating an election law.

The reason: It’s not worth the effort.

The agency voted 4-0 against pursuing action after FEC lawyers wrote a four-page memo that said Reid’s fundraising committee admitted to failing to comply with an election law requirement, but that it wasn’t worth the time or money to prosecute.
[…]
“It appears that the original solicitation, which did not inform recipients that Reid was only asking for contributions that complied with the Act, violated 52 U.S.C. ยง 30125(e)(1)(B). However, the contributions resulting from Reid’s solicitation email appear to have been modest, and the Reid Committee attempted to remedy the violation by sending a follow-up email explaining that all contributions had to comply with the Act’s limitations and source prohibitions. Thus, in furtherance of the Commission’s priorities, relative to other matters pending on the Enforcement docket, and in light of the corrective actions taken by the Reid Committee and the modest amount in violation, the Office of General Counsel believes that the Commission should exercise its prosecutorial discretion and dismiss the violations as to Reid and his committee,” said the FEC enforcement memo.

Has Reid blamed the Koch brothers for setting him up yet?

From the DNC convention platform:

“[W]e will continue to fight against discriminatory voter identification laws, which disproportionately burden young voters, diverse communities, people of color, low-income families, people with disabilities, the elderly, and women,” the draft says.

What’s with the racist, sexist, peniaphobic attempt to disenfranchise delegates, DNC?
