9/18 Daily Dose of Joe

Friends -- see below for today's Dose of Joe.

• Yesterday, Joe Biden participated in a CNN town hall in Scranton, Pennsylvania where he outlined how he sees this election as Scranton versus Park Avenue, as Donald Trump repeatedly demonstrates that working class Americans are not his priority. And Biden spoke about the issues that matter to voters: COVID-19, the climate crisis, the economic crunch families are facing.

• Today, Joe Biden will travel to Duluth, Minnesota. In the afternoon, Vice President Biden will tour a union training center and deliver remarks. You can watch HERE.

• Today, on National Black Voter Day, Biden for President will launch the “Turn Up and Turn out the Vote Virtual Bus Tour” with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) PAC. Kamala Harris will launch the tour with a voter registration and early vote rally in North Carolina with Congresswoman Alma Adams, Congressman G. K. Butterfield, and R&B singer and Charlotte native Anthony Hamilton.

• Jill Biden will join a virtual conversation with members of Culinary Workers Union Local 226 to hear about the challenges they have faced with the impact of COVID-19 on Nevada’s tourism and hospitality industries. And, then she will join State Representative Serena Gonzales-Gutierrez and a group of Colorado moms in a virtual roundtable to discuss the dramatic changes in their lives brought on by COVID-19.

• Yesterday, the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA) endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for president and vice president of the United States. The American Federation of School Administrators is the exclusive national labor union for administrators, professionals and supervisors advocating for excellence and equity in all of our schools, workplaces and communities.

@joebiden: The choice in this election couldn’t be more clear. We can choose four more years of Donald Trump’s dark and divisive politics. Or we can choose a path of hope and light—and build a better future for all. Chip in to help us win. #BidenTownHall

@joebiden: This election is Scranton vs. Park Avenue.

@joebiden: Unlike President Trump, I’ll be a president for all Americans — not just the ones who vote for me. #BidenTownHall

@joebiden: We all want a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible, but it needs to be based on science — not politics. Tune in as I discuss how we can develop and equitably distribute a safe and effective vaccine:

@joebiden: We’ve lost nearly 200,000 Americans to COVID-19. It didn’t have to be this bad — but Donald Trump failed to do his job.

@joebiden: The fact of the matter is Donald Trump doesn't have a health care plan. I do — and you can read it here: JoeBiden.com/HealthCare

Larry Klayman-A conservative legal gadfly faces the music

I have never liked Klayman and this makes me smile
https://twitter.com/politico/status/1306382495785594880

D.C. Bar officials contend the famously litigious Klayman misrepresented facts, filed meritless legal pleadings and brought frivolous demands for recusal and an ethics complaint against a judge who rejected the hard-charging lawyer’s bid to join the defense team at Bundy’s request.

Klayman insists he’s guilty of nothing more than “zealous advocacy” in the episode. But looming over this week’s hearing is a more epic fight between ethics officials, who say he’s made a specialty out of using the legal system to harass his enemies, and Klayman, who contends he’s the victim of a politically motivated crusade to end his decades as a legal pit bull for conservative causes and figures.

During the 1990s, as he headed Judicial Watch, Klayman became reviled by many in the Clinton administration for forcing aides into bizarre, almost post-modern depositions that often led the witnesses to incur tens of thousands of dollars in legal bills. His antics eventually inspired the writers of “The West Wing” to create a toxic, scandal-chasing character, Harry Klaypool of Freedom Watch. Klayman was thrilled and — after a rancorous break-up with other leaders at Judicial Watch — adopted the fictional name from the TV show as the name of his new organization.

While many on the Washington scene have been waiting for decades for Klayman to get his comeuppance in court, three different ethics cases he is now embroiled in raise questions about how to police a legal system that generally imposes few consequences for filing marginal lawsuits and complaints.
