Secretary Of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver Addresses Reports Of Election Misinformation On Facebook Today

first_imgSecretary of State Maggie Toulouse OliverSTATE News:SANTA FE – Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver released the following statement today following reports of election misinformation on Facebook that were received by our Office:“We received reports today of a post on Facebook by a local New Mexico group claiming that Governor Lujan Grisham was planning to shut down polling locations throughout the state on Oct. 15, 2020. “This information is completely false. “Absentee voting and early in-person voting at county clerks’ offices began yesterday, with wider early voting locations opening on Oct. 17. In-person voting will be available in all 33 counties throughout the entire early voting period and on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3. “My Office is in continual contact with representatives from all the major social media platforms, as well as with our federal partners like the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and examples of misinformation like this one are reported immediately. “Though it’s unfortunate that only a day after the start of early voting in New Mexico we are already seeing misinformation, it provides a good opportunity to remind the public to be extra vigilant about any voting or election information that does not come from a verified source like your county clerk or my Office.”last_img read more

All Blacks branded cheats after France card row

first_imgAll Blacks flanker Sam Cane was penalised on the field for a high shot on Grosso, while prop Ofa Tu’ungafasi escaped punishment for his role in the head-high collision with World Rugby saying his role fell “just short” of the red card threshold.Immediately after the Test, won by New Zealand 52-11, French coach Jacque Brunel described the double hit as “dangerous” and “illegal” but later softened his stance, saying the collision was probably accidental.But World Rugby vice chairman Agustin Pichot attached the words “should be cited (in) my view” to a tweet showing video of the tackle, which has ended Grosso’s tour.A former top referee, England’s Rob Debney, wrote in The Times that officials’ leniency towards the All Blacks “exists on a subconscious level. The accountability for taking a decision against them, the scrutiny it comes under compared with other teams, is incredible.”Gourdon said the All Blacks tended to get the rub of the green from referees “because they win all their games”.The All Blacks “cheat, of course, but it’s certainly related to the fact they play good rugby… which has a positive effect on the referees”, added the flanker.– Sin-binning not ‘significant’ –All Blacks assistant coach Ian Foster dismissed the cheating allegations, and denied the world champions and number one Test team received any favouritism from officials.“I think if you look at the penalty counts (and) yellow cards last year, we were one of the top yellow-carded teams in the world so I’m not sure how this ‘soft on us’ comes to fruition,” he said.Foster also reiterated that the All Blacks did not agree with the yellow card handed out to France lock Paul Gabrillagues last week for a tackle on Ryan Crotty.“I think we’ve been pretty open and honest about how we interpreted last week,” said Foster.“We thought they were a little bit unlucky with their yellow card; it was one of those marginal ones. Was it up there? Yes it was. Was it significant? Probably not.”Cane’s tackle on Grosso was high, for which he was penalised at the time.“The question is: was it worthy of a yellow card? And, I guess, between a referee and an independent citing commissioner, they’ve said no. So we’ve just got to take the emotion out of it,” Foster said.Brunel has made five changes for the second Test with Gourdon the only loose forward to survive from the first Test hiding, although he has been moved from the flank to the back row.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000France’s Kevin Gourdon has raised temperatures ahead of the second Test against the All Blacks. © AFP / MICHAEL BRADLEYWELLINGTON, New Zealand, Jun 14 – France backrower Kevin Gourdon called the All Blacks cheats on Thursday and said they were treated leniently by referees after they escaped punishment over a contentious incident in last week’s first Test.Gourdon’s outburst, two days before the second Test in Wellington, follows condemnation of World Rugby’s decision not to hand out further punishment over a tackle in which French wing Remy Grosso suffered two facial fractures.last_img read more
