THE ELECTION PROCESS & POLITICAL CONVERSATION & FB SPOILED BALLOTS FIASCO
Oct 14, 2020 Season 1 Episode 40
Kelly Fitzgerald Fowler and Susan Sloate

Episode #40 of TALK JAM is a discussion of Kelly and Susan's experiences in the election process, here in Charleston County, SC. Thousands of voters have already turned out to vote in-person absentee, with many more expected in the next few weeks. Voting continues up until November 2nd, the day before the election.

We also discuss political conversation, and how so much of it is spoken in shorthand, so you get only bits and pieces. If you don't know what some of these terms mean, it can make you feel pretty stupid. So in the interest of helping more people feel more comfortable with political talk, Kelly and Susan define some important terms and then discuss the granddaddy of all political scandals--the Watergate scandal which rocked Washington in the 1970s. Since then, virtually every political scandal has been something-gate, but Watergate was the first and still has resonance today. And Woodward and Bernstein, who reported on the scandal for THE WASHINGTON POST, have sent a generation of kids to journalism school and earned themselves a place in history.

Kelly also talks about her experience in FB jail for simply educating people about spoiled ballots. Hint, do not allow anyone working at the polls to put any marks, checkmarks even a dot on your ballot.
