I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

The Hatch Act was enacted in 1939 to prevent federal employees for using their positions to interfere with or affect the result of elections. After Comey's "October Surprise," some are accusing him of violating the Act. However, punishment largely depends on proving intent/purpose, which is difficult. 

The whole article is here
