Campaigning With My Son

I’ve never been active in politics beyond the local level. However this year, knowing all that is at stake for our country, I’ve felt increasingly drawn to share information, donate money, post yard signs, and make phone calls. And yet, with election day approaching, I felt like I haven’t done enough.

We were sitting at dinner last Tuesday night, talking about the upcoming weekend, tossing around ideas about how to fill some unplanned hours on Saturday. “It would be kind of cool to go to New Hampshire and canvass for Hillary Clinton,” I said casually, not even sure if I wanted to go.

Imagine worrying each and every day that if a certain candidate is elected, your entire life could change for the worse. This might sound exaggerated and dramatic, but for me and others with disabilities, this is reality.

FBI's Comey May Be A Big Loser Tuesday

Whoever wins Tuesday's election, a big loser could be FBI Director James Comey. Not since J. Edgar Hoover has anyone done as much damage to bureau's reputation as Comey.

His plunge into the presidential campaign with unsubstantiated charges coupled with malicious anti-Clinton leaks from some of his rogue agents just days before the election has the odor of intentional interference.

Trump Plays Jerusalem Card, Cautiously

Beyond The Presidential Election: State Voting Guide And Disability Issues

Editor's Note: As the election draws near, we wanted to share this important new guide to state elections created by RespectAbility.

While the presidential election has taken up much of the news cycle, attention also is shifting to who will control the Senate. As such, RespectAbility has reached out to candidates running for Senate as well as Governor in the 2016 elections with the #PwDsVote Disability Campaign Questionnaire for Senate and Gubernatorial Candidates for people with disabilities.

RespectAbility, founded in 2013, is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to end stigmas and advance opportunities for people with disabilities. Utilizing candidate responses to both the down ballot and presidential campaign questionnaires, RespectAbility has released 51 state voter guides.
