VIDEO OF THE DAY: Dr. Oz’s campaign suffers crushing blow with bombshell news

Herschel Walker’s campaign rocked by abortion allegations and accusations of domestic violence by his son
Herschel Walker’s embattled senatorial campaign took another major hit yesterday, as news broke that the former football player and serial liar urged — and paid for — his then ex-girlfriend to have an abortion after he impregnated her in 2009. After this story broke, Walker’s son Christian took to Twitter in fury and publicly accused his father of making a mockery of the family. “You’re not a ‘family man’ when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence,” wrote the young Walker.

With no defense for his flagrant crimes, the disgraced ex-president has decided to go on the offensive, filing a lawsuit against CNN for calling him “racist,” “Russian lackey,” “insurrectionist,” and ultimately “Hitler.” The lawsuit will almost certainly be dismissed like so many other nonsensical suits from the racist, Russian lackey insurrectionist Hitler.

US Soccer investigation finds “systemic” abuse in women’s league
It’s the same old story that we’re all so tired of hearing. A damning new report from US Soccer found rampant sexual misconduct and verbal and emotional abuse across multiple NWSL teams. The report details numerous instances of abuse across the league, vicious coaching tactics — “manipulation that was about power, not improving performance” — and a repeated failure by team executives and the league to respond to reports of abuse.

DEEP DIVE: Brazil’s presidential runoff


Today’s Action: Get out the vote for Democratic candidate Mandela Barnes!

Republican Ron Johnson is just barely beating progressive Mandela Barnes in the polls, and we need every Democrat working to secure Barnes’ victory. Phone banking Wisconsin voters is one of the best ways that you can help get the vote out this November — luckily, plenty of organizations are hosting virtual options so you can do your part. Barnes was beating Johnson in polls as recently as August, and it’s more than possible to close the gap again.

The margin of error for keeping the House and Senate in Democratic hands is far too thin for comfort — but there are plenty of ways we can take action to ensure we keep power. Barnes’ potential seat is an incredibly important one, so even if you aren’t in his district, text and phone banking is crucial. You don’t have to be a seasoned professional, just be ready to do good work! 

Our Revolution is hosting phone banks for Mandela Barnes’ seat EVERY THURSDAY from 6-10 PM EDT until early November. If you can make it out to just one, the voters you reach could mean the difference between a red and blue seat. It doesn’t have to stop at Barnes. There are progressives all across the country that need your help getting out the vote, and you can filter through virtual phone and text banking events through Mobilize. So many things are on the line this election — reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun safety initiatives, everything we’ve worked so long and so hard for! It’s never been more important to get out the vote and fight for our rights, so don’t waste a minute!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
