It’s Laura, back with a few frog-free potboilers from the rest of the crew:

1) The new Black Panthers and me: Obama’s DOJ is under fire for dropping a controversial voter intimidation case. Our reporter caught the whole incident on camera.

2) Did Clinton compare Gore to Mussolini? David Corn’s favorite excerpts from the Clinton bio you can’t read yet.

3) Meet the spy who loved Hamas. And Hezbollah. And Iran. Just who is ex-MI6 superstar Alastair Crooke working for, anyway?

4) Rare photos from inside a (completely macrame-free) Hamas summer camp for young Palestinian boys.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.

Monika Bauerlein, CEO, Mother Jones
