Stacey Abrams’ Democratic campaign filed a federal lawsuit Sunday asking a judge to delay vote certifications in Georgia unsettled governor’s race by one day and to make officials count any votes that were wrongly rejected.

According to reports, In a ruling late Monday, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg ordered the secretary of state’s office to establish and publicize a hotline or website where voters can check whether their provisional ballots were counted and, if not, the reason why. And, for counties with 100 or more provisional ballots, she ordered the secretary of state’s office to review, or have county election officials review, the eligibility of voters who had to cast a provisional ballot because of registration issues.

Totenberg also ruled that Georgia must not certify the election results before Friday at 5 p.m., which falls before the Nov. 20 deadline set by state law.

‘The Real’ Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley Reflects On The Loss Of Her Niece Alaina Housley

Last week, “The Real” co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley are mourning the loss of their niece after learning she was among the 12 people killed in a California mass shooting late Wednesday.

This morning, Tamera and her husband Adam Housely speaks out about their painful loss in an interview with CBS This Morning.

The utter sameness of this grim ritual is more than familiar to Alaina’s uncle, Adam Housley, a former Fox News correspondent.

“I’ve been to these things, Lee. You have. You’ve covered these things, you go home and you sit there and you’re like, you know, my gosh, how are these people going to get through it?” Housley said. “And now we’re living it.”

Alaina’s aunt, actress Tamera Mowry Housley, is looking for answers. “Alaina was beautiful,” she said. “And she was my friend. Yes, there needs to be a change, but all the noise … nothing’s been done.”

And it’s because of that – despite being in the midst of so much grief – that they all agreed to talk to us. Alaina, they say, would have wanted to dig deeper than politics.

Adam said, “If I was to walk out of here and the first thing I was to say was, you know, ‘Gun control,’ guess what? Half the country (snaps fingers), [conversation] ends.

“And we don’t want the conversation to end,” said Tamera.

“It can’t this time,” said Adam.

“We want it to continue.”

Donald Trump Responds to Michelle Obama: I’ll Never Forgive (President Barack Obama) for what he did to our US military..’

If you missed the previous story click Here to read.

In her upcoming memoir, Michelle Obama writes that she will “never forgive” President Trump for pushing the so-called birther conspiracy that she believes put her family’s safety at risk.

Trump responded to the former first lady Friday with an irrelevant swipe at former President Barack Obama over cuts in military spending.

Michelle Obama tears into Trump over the issue that launched his political career: spreading the lie that Barack Obama was born outside the country and was therefore ineligible to be president.

“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,” she writes. “What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”

Donald Trump responds…

“She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy,” Trump said.
“I’ll give you a little controversy back, I’ll never forgive (President Barack Obama) for what he did to our US military. It was depleted, and I had to fix it,” Trump said. “What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you.”

Click Here if you missed the story.

BMI sent a cease and desist to the Trump campaign informing them that they can no longer use Rihanna’s music without her permission.

According to reports,“BMI has received a communication from Robyn Fenty, professionally known as ‘Rihanna,’ objecting to the Trump Campaign’s use of Rihanna’s musical works,” the letter, obtained by Rolling Stone, reads. “As such … this letter serves as notice that Rihanna’s musical works are excluded from [an agreement between BMI and the Trump Campaign for song usage], and any performance of Rihanna’s musical works by the Trump Campaign from this date forward is not authorized by BMI.”

A rep for BMI sent the note to the associate vice president and the director of operations for Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., as well as a rep for Red Curve Solutions, which serves as treasurer for the campaign. It is unclear what repercussions the Trump organization would face if it violated this exception.

Reps for the Trump campaign and Red Curve did not immediately reply to Rolling Stone’s requests for comment.
