After years of neglecting state legislative races, Democrats are now energized to contest even strongly Republican districts in 2018, hoping to take control of key statehouses as redistricting looms.
The growing chorus of Democratic lawmakers calling on Sen. Al Franken to step down Wednesday opened up a dramatic partisan divide in how the two major parties are responding to their members and candidates accused of sexual harassment or abuse. By the day’s end, 30 lawmakers — and well over half the
Women candidates and voters — often in districts that Democrats had given up contesting — helped the party to its extraordinary gains in Virginia.

This week Facebook came through as a forum for truth as women across the country unspooled their tales of sexual harassment and abuse under the #MeToo hashtag — and the movement is already having real-world consequences.
Only a small percentage of sexual assaults result in criminal charges, and even fewer with convictions. As a result, many victims don’t even bother filing complaints. And powerful men, from the president on down, face few lasting consequences.

A social networking website popular with white supremacists faced a fresh round of controversies this week after it banned the former system administrator of the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer from using its services. It also faced a deadline from its domain registrar in Australia, which said it would delist
Humans evolved in a world where most speech was intimate, casual and ephemeral. Facebook and Twitter have redefined it as public, formal and permanent. Jokes and gaffes that once would have gone no further than the water cooler—or Trump’s infamous “locker room”—now have a potentially worldwide audience
