Republicans are planning to subvert future elections. They tried to overturn the election results in court in 2020 and overthrow them at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Republicans will try again in 2022. If they fail, they will try again in 2024.https://t.co/TW2VDSoKBg— Marc E. Elias (@marceelias) June 20, 2022

Funniest and maybe most revealing nugget in this Chesebro profile is his one time mentor Larry Tribe saying the last time he heard from his erstwhile protege was in 2019 when Chesebro tried to get Tribe involved in a Bitcoin investment. https://t.co/ioiQdqIZ6j— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) June 16, 2022

Of course, a lot of VCs are assholes.
I saw a VC say they won’t invest in companies that don’t require people to work in the office.
