U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, a Denver Democrat, said Wednesday she’ll withhold her vote on a crucial December spending deal unless the House passes legislation before the end of the year to protect undocumented immigrants who came to the country as minors.
U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette said she believes it’s important to identify members of Congress who have engaged in sexual misconduct so they can’t continue their behavior, adding that lawmakers should be expelled from Congress when there’s credible evidence of harassment. The Denver Democrat told MSNBC host Chris Hayes on Tuesday that Congress also needs “a much more robust reporting system” to investigate complaints about sexual harassment.
Members of U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton’s congressional staff plan to hold mobile office hours in Lake and Gunnison counties next week. His aides will be able to help constituents with a range of issues, including business involving Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Affairs, the Bureau of Land Management, Citizenship and Immigration Services and the Internal Revenue Service. It’ll also be possible to acquire American flags that have been flown over the U.S. Capitol.
@BigMediaBlog@wtylersandberg@dccc@RepMikeCoffman The expiration dates were added in the Senate bill so it only adds $1.5 trillion to deficit, so Senate can pass w/ simple majority under chamber's rules. Coffman didn't approve any expiration dates on House bill.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
