Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

It couldn't happen to a more deserving guy who is  "27 and lives with his parents in New Jersey."
James O'Keefe III - the man behind surreptitiously recorded videos showing young men being offered the ballots of dead people for the 2012 presidential primary - said yesterday that he cannot enter the state of New Hampshire for fear he'll be subpoenaed by state attorney general. [...]

"I've been advised that if I appear physically in New Hampshire, I will be hit with a grand jury subpoena," O'Keefe told several hundred Republicans.

"Yesterday, a representative of the state of New Hampshire attempted to serve me with a criminal grand jury subpoena. My lawyer, Mike Madigan, has requested a copy of it . . . thus far the attorney general of New Hampshire has declined to provide us a copy of that."

The state Republicans really wanted to hear from him on voter fraud, in order to keep pushing their own voter suppression efforts. The state's attorney general really wants to hear from him, too, because the only real voter fraud O'Keefe can talk about is his own illegal effort to muck with the New Hampshire vote. He was all ready to tell New Hampshire Republicans all about it, until a representative of the state's attorney general's office showed up at a local conservative blogger's house, asking if O'Keefe was there.

The visit was promptly canceled, and O'Keefe gave his talk via Skype, from the safety of his parents' house.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
