GENERIC CONGRESSIONAL BALLOT: The current Real Clear Politics generic congressional ballot average of polls from 9/16-9/230/2018 has Democrats+7.4. (Change from yesterday: no change)
For comparison purposes only: In the same period in 2014, Republicans had an edge of +2.4.
FIVETHIRTYEIGHT.COM PROJECTION UPDATE:
Sorry about yesterday. Server problems again as I wasn't able to save. Things still seem to be glitchy this morning, but I'll try to get this out.
We have a new report of voter reg.
FELONY MURDER: When I was in law school, it was surprising that someone could be charged with murder for being an accomplice. This particularly has hit African-American men involved in gangs. Jerry Brown signed SB 1437 (Skinner) on Sunday to allow inmates to petition for resentencing under certain circumstances and drastically changes the felony murder law.
It was a shock to learn that someone participating in a convenience store robbery could be convicted for felony murder and sentenced to life in prison, even if he didn't pull a trigger. I think Professor Poulus teared up teaching us that.
Thank you, Governor Brown and Senator Nancy Skinner. To the vulnerable Democrats who ducked the vote, quack quack. Thank you Republicans Joel Anderson, Anthony Cannella, and John Moorlach for voting "aye" in the face of opposition of law enforcement, including DAs.
NO JUSTICE FOR JANITORS: The governor vetoed AB 2079 (Gonzalez Fletcher), the much publicized bill to require protections from sexual harassment/abuse of janitorial workers, including peer trainers. 100 janitors marched from San Francisco to Sacramento to call for the bill's approval. The bill was strongly opposed by business interests over costs for training and liability threats.
It was not a good last day of the bill-signing period for Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego), as she had six bills vetoed, mostly on abuse and employment discrimination. She likely would have fared better under fellow San Diegan Pete Wilson.
