Another reason that irked Kumaraswamy was reports that the BJP had approached JD(S) MLA from Nagamangala constituency Suresh Gowda asking him to pack his baggage to leave for Mumbai as already 18 dissident MLAs were with the BJP and ready to join them. which is ruling Punjab, a destructive? he also exchanged vows with her younger sister, and its lobbyists and professional politickers In a victory speech delivered in the wee hours of Wednesday morning Trump credited his victory to voters "who want and expect our government to serve the people and serve the people it will" Now Trump has to prove it Trumps relationship with big money From Trumps first day on the trail when he rode the Trump Tower escalator down to announce his bid the first-time candidate told voters he would be different He was running against the establishment Republican as much as Democratic Politicians are "controlled fully theyre controlled fully by the lobbyists by the donors and by the special interests fully" he said And that he promised over and over through months of Republican primaries wouldnt be him "I really like the Koch Brothers (members of my PB Club) but I don’t want their money or anything else from them Cannot influence Trump" he tweeted Meanwhile his Republican primary opponents were on the money trail setting up officially sanctioned super PACs and courting big donors The money didnt help the super PACs werent enough and Trump endlessly mocked his opponents for toadying to big donors "I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money etc from the Koch Brothers Puppets" he tweeted in August 2015 Trump insisted he would self-fund and could spend as much as it took "By the time it’s finished I’ll have more than $100 million invested" he insisted during the second general election debate a figure he repeated throughout the race He put in about $46 million of his own money during the primary much of it in loans he eventually forgave Voters loved it They rewarded him with the Republican nomination But after securing the nomination Trumps tone changed In Clinton he faced a candidate with a fundraising operation unparalleled in politics Her campaign alone raised $510 million more than twice Trumps $255 million and together with outside groups supporting her bid ran 75 percent of the more than 500000 broadcast and national TV ads aired in the presidential race Trump essentially embraced big-money vehicles such as super PACs although combined groups supporting him raised a relatively scant $60 million through Oct 19 He courted big GOP donors such as casino magnate Sheldon Adelson His own contributions slowed and his fundraising events sped up And donors gained influence New York investor Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah who oversaw one of the earliest super PACs to swing support his way convinced Trump to reshape his campaign leadership appointing operatives with close ties to them In the end Trump put in a relatively paltry $66 million of his own about $1 of every $4 raised by his campaign And he never aggressively courted donors in the manner Clinton and her backers did According to campaign finance filings Trump raised at least $67 million from small-dollar donors who each gave no more than $200 Many of these contributors had purchased Trumps iconic "Make America Great Again" hats from his campaign or other merchandise such as the set of three "Hillary for prison" buttons sold by his campaign for $6 And Clintons superior campaign fundraising machine buttressed by the nations biggest-money super PAC in operation wasnt enough to halt Trumps unlikely march to the White House Clinton had huge ad advantage Trump spent the general election wildly outspent and facing a seemingly endless stream of ads from Clinton and her allies In Florida the No 1 target in the ad war of Team Clinton Clinton and her allies accounted for more than 75 percent of the 121000-plus TV ads aired during the general election according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of advertising data provided by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG In most of the high-profile swing states the story was the same In Ohio Team Clinton was responsible for about 75 percent of the 79000 TV ads aired in the race since mid-June after the primaries had ended In North Carolina Team Clinton was likewise responsible for about three-quarters of the 63000 presidential race TV ads since mid-June And in Pennsylvania Team Clinton was responsible for nearly three-fourths of the 58000 or so presidential TV ads that aired there since mid-June The only exception: Wisconsin In the Badger State Trump and his allies were responsible for about 60 percent of the roughly 10000 TV ads aired in the state between June 12 and Nov 6 according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of data provided by ad tracking firm Kantar Media/CMAG with the ad blitz beginning in mid-September Clinton who never visited Wisconsin during the general election and her allies didnt air general election TV ad in the state until Oct 29 The last time Wisconsin supported a GOP presidential nominee Ronald Reagan was on the ballot Spearheading the Republican push: Diane Hendricks the richest woman in Wisconsin who gave nearly $55 million to a super PAC that spent millions on ads in her home state attacking Clinton and Russ Feingold the Democratic candidate for US Senate Both lost in Wisconsin on Election Day A few big donors began putting real money into ads supporting him in the fall through a super PAC Future 45 and a related nonprofit group that does not reveal its donors Big donors included Adelson and Joe Ricketts the billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade The two groups together aired more than 9000 ads many in Florida In addition Trump far outstripped Clinton in free media with cable channels carrying his rallies live and his every tweet making news in a race that turned both ugly and personal "Lock her up" supporters chanted at rallies referring to Clinton His lean campaign relied heavily on the Republican National Committees turnout operation a strategy that paid off Clintons big money problem Big money can backfire as Democrats who have often fought for dramatic campaign finance reforms are painfully learning The benefits are as significant as they are obvious: a candidate may hire superior staff purchase more ads and run longer and harder than an opponent But the drawbacks proved to be equally profound for Clinton Although she routinely decried the US Supreme Courts Citizens United v Federal Election Commission decision she became one of its chief beneficiaries by building a massive money-making machine that fully exploited the high courts ruling While she promised to "fight hard to end the stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government" her campaign and supportive super PACs solicited huge sums from elite political patrons Read More: Donald Trump Wins the 2016 Election And despite her railing against "secret unaccountable money in politics" the super PACs supporting Clinton collected eight-figures worth of money from sources trading in cash thats tough if not outrightly impossible to trace Money also couldnt adequately mask what many voters perceived fair or not as Clintons damning flaws Theres her penchant for secret-keeping be it delivering private speeches to Wall Street executives or shielding her State Department emails from public scrutiny And her Clinton Foundation wooing of the ultra-rich and unsavory foreign governments undercut her pledges that shes represent the interests of who she once half-heartedly (and ham-handedly) described as "everyday Americans" Bernie Sanders surprisingly strong challenge to Clinton in the Democrats presidential primary was largely fueled by liberals reaction against what many considered Clintons insincerity on matters of political money and influence After Clinton vanquished Sanders a US senator from Vermont she never quite captured his supporters energy and enthusiasm for her own purposes Trump meanwhile repeatedly hammered Clinton as "crooked" liar most interested in her own power and prestige No matter that Trump belittled his opponents exaggerated his charitable giving refused to release his tax returns and was caught on tape describing how hed sexually assault women The body politic sided with Trump over Clinton Draining the swamp Trump now turn to setting up an administration with jobs presidents often turn to lobbyists to fill and setting an agenda for his presidency Voters and campaign finance reform advocates will be looking to see how Trump acts to reduce the influence of money in politics that he decried throughout the campaign "To the extent that Mr Trump while campaigning has criticized the current campaign finance system his only solution offered seems to be more candidates like him who are billionaires and can self finance and thats not a solution" said Paul S Ryan vice president for policy and litigation at nonpartisan group Common Cause and a longtime advocate for campaign finance reform In October Trump released a slate of proposals that he said were meant to reform Washington He called for longer bans on lobbying by executive branch officials members of Congress and congressional staff He also said he would move to tighten the legal definition of lobbyists forcing more advocates to disclose their activities under laws covering lobbyists Read More: All the Emotions of Election Night in One Photo He also said he would ask Congress to prohibit lobbyists for foreign governments from fundraising for political candidates and seek a constitutional amendment requiring congressional term limits Trump has some measure of public faith: Respondents to a Center for Public Integrity/Ipsos poll earlier this year gave Trump higher marks than Clinton on the prospect of them reforming the nations campaign money system Still most of Trumps proposals are a tall order that would require support from Congress Constitutional amendments are exceedingly rare And much of the strength of his proposals lie in the details he has yet to flesh out In addition Ryan points out Trumps campaign lawyer Jones Day partner Don McGahn a former head of the Federal Election Commission has traditionally battled any restrictions on money in politics "Don McGahn says publicly that he thinks most campaign finance laws are unconstitutional" Ryan said What Trump thinks about this will be revealed as prepared to move into the White House This story is from the Center for Public Integrity a nonprofit nonpartisan investigative media organization in Washington DC Read more of

nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her President Donald Trump mocked her at a rally and Jimmy Kimmel was appalled "You know Id say Im starting to think a bipolar sociopath with no moral compass might not have been our best choice for president" said Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night He also turned his attention to the crowd’s behavior: "The people in the crowd when he did this they loved it He mocked this womans story about a sexual assault they ate it up they laughed they cheered I really dont understand it" The comments were perhaps even more surprising in the context which Kimmel noted was a "rally to support Mississippis first-ever female senator" While the White House stated that Trump wasnt mocking Fords assault but rather "stating the facts" key swing Senate Republicans and some of Trumps usual supporters distanced themselves from his comments "He even got a bad review from his closest friends" Kimmel noted "When Fox & Friends thinks Trump blew it

Performance Index which ranks each state on 17 criteria including wait times at the polls availability of online voter information tools percentage of voters with registration or absentee ballot issues voter turnout and accuracy of voting technologyNorth Dakota’s Secretary of State Al Jaeger said the voting process in the state is working well and he was pleased the study shows it"Our goal is the morning after the election the news is all about the results and not about the voting process and we have succeeded with that for a number of election cycles" he saidFor North Dakota the favorable study comes at a time when some Republican state lawmakers are proposing changes to absentee and early votingJaeger’s office and Cass County Auditor Mike Montplaisir both recently testified in Bismarck against House Bill 1400 which would cut the number of early voting days by more than half from 15 days to only the week before Election DayJaeger said his office also opposes House Bill 1238 which would prohibit absentee ballots from being sent earlier than 20 days before the election Both bills could make for longer lines at the polls which can discourage voting Montplaisir said"We’re trying to make sure that the voter has adequate access to the ballot and that it’s not cumbersome" he saidAccording to the Pew study North Dakota ranked sixth in shortest wait time at the polls in 2008 with the average line lasting around five minutes Minnesota was in the top 20 with a wait of only eight minutesThe longest average wait time in 2008 went to South Carolina with 61 minutes Georgia was next with a 37 minute average wait Data for 2010 was not available Another issue the Pew study looked at was how many eligible voters didn’t cast a ballot because of problems with registration or

require voters to registerMontplaisir said one reason North Dakota has maintained its voting procedure is because it’s working Voter fraud in the state is "extremely rare" he saidJaeger said unless
