Things You Need to Know Now

Highlights today:

  • Laura Ingram, activists judges and what that means to you!
  • Michael Bloomberg Soros pays fines for 32,000 ex-felons in Florida so they can vote.
  • Democrats threaten to pact the Supreme Court with more justices
  • Democrats threaten to pact the Senate by adding statehood to D.C. and Puerto Rico

Billionaire and former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has raised more than $16 million toward paying off the court fines of Florida felons in order to make them eligible to vote, and so far the ongoing effort has settled obligations in full for more than 31,000 former prisoners ahead of Election Day.  The only hitch is the recipient must be black or Hispanic.

Bloomberg aides told The Daily Mail that the former mayor of New York City — who has pledged to spend $100 million to help Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden win on Nov. 3 — rallied other donors and added nearly $17 million to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition’s $5 million raised toward pay off fines owed by felons so that they can vote.

The outlet reported that according to the Florida Right Restoration Coalition, “other donors include John Legend, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Ben & Jerry’s, Levi Strauss & Co, the Miami Dolphins, the Orlando Magic, the Miami Heat and Steven Spielberg.”
