Twitter has reportedly deleted as many as 10,000 accounts at the request of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, a party group that supports Democrats running for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Social media platform Twitter recently told Reuters in a statement: “We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” following the removal of over 10,000 Twitter accounts in September and October. The removal of the accounts is reportedly due to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) a party group that works to help Democrats running for the U.S. House of Representatives.
The DCCC reportedly began working to have social media websites crack down on certain accounts following the spread of “misinformation” about Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates during the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. Reuters notes that misinformation campaigns running up to the November 6 midterm elections have not been particularly common, Democrats are hoping that their efforts to crack down on social media will help if there is a large amount of social media activity during the final days before the election.

President Trump blasted one of Brett Kavanaugh’s “Jane Doe” accusers at a Montana campaign rally on Saturday, saying “she made up the lie” as he derided the accusation as “fake.”
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had requested an investigation of the accuser, Judy Munro-Leighton, who anonymously claimed that Kavanaugh forced her to perform oral sex on him. Committee investigators found that the woman had “fabricated” her accusation, according to a letter from Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Munro-Leighton was interviewed by investigators on Thursday in which she “admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original ‘Jane Doe’ letter,'” Grassley’s office said.
MADISON, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin Madison is making a big GOTV push this year. In addition to hosting three early voting sites, they’re putting extra resources into providing students with the documentation they need to register and vote – all students.
The two key documents are proof of residence and a photo ID. The university is making it as easy as possible to get these documents.
All students can print off a “Voter Eligibility Verification Letter” simply by going to their online university account. The process is automatic and instant.
For the state’s voter ID requirement, student ID cards don’t count, because they don’t have an expiration date. And so, any student can go to the union, present their student ID, and get a special student voter ID card.
