THE RAIN REIGNSHurricane Michael has been upgraded to a Category 4 and is expected to make landfall today with powerful winds, torrential rains, and a potentially devastating storm surge. CANDIDATES WEATHER THE STORM… The hurricane arrives less than four weeks before statewide elections in Florida, and FL gubernatorial candidate Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is in the spotlight. WHAT THE HALEY?? UN Ambassador Nikki Haley sent shockwaves across the globe when she announced her resignation on Tuesday morning. The speculation is on-going. We weigh in below. HE’S GOT FIVE ON IT… The president said he was considering five candidates to replace Haley including his top choice, Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell, and his Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. Trump also said that his daughter Ivanka Trump “would be incredible, but it doesn’t mean I’d pick her.” The help-wanted ad is still active. IF I BREAK UP WITH HIM, WILL YOU GO WITH ME? The president “jokingly” asked Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) if he would want to be Attorney General, furthering speculation he will likely fire AG Jeff Sessions after the midterms. Graham declined. ON THE DOCKET… The Supreme Court today will hear arguments in a class action brought by a group of immigrants in the Ninth Circuit who have been or are being detained under a provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Nielsen v. Preap may determine whether thousands of longtime residents of the U.S. face indefinite detention without a hearing. BRETT DOT COM… Those who visit the newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s namesake website domain are invited to click on links to resources for survivors of sexual assault. BLUE BLOOM… Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced this morning that he had re-registered as a Democrat -- a sign that the billionaire could seriously be considering a presidential bid in 2020. MISSING & MURDERED? Turkish media outlets have published footage which they say shows evidence of a plot linked to missing Saudi journalist and Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi -- he is believed to have been kidnapped and dismembered.  EAT THE CAKE, ANNA MAE… Music icon Tina Turner is revisiting her troubled story with Ike Turner in a new memoir, My Love Story, due out on October 16th. Every now and then, you may want to read something nice and easy. So... WE’RE ROLLING! (rolling)! Rolling (rolling)! Kicking off your Tuesday with this...

Lawmakers Decry “Public Charge” Rule that Targets Immigrant Communities
Senators Bob Menéndez (D-NJ)
, Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) led a group of Senate colleagues in sending a letter to the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, urging the administration to reverse course and withdraw the proposed public charge rule -- which would bar legal immigrants from obtaining permanent residency if they have used public assistance programs like SNAP or Medicaid. “Frightening people away from critical resources will compromise families and communities across our country,” the Senators write. “The wellbeing of children and parents is inextricably linked. It is impossible to single out one member of a family without having a ripple effect on children and other members of the household.” Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus Chair Congresswoman Judy Chu (D-CA) on Tuesday introduced a bill to prevent any federal funds from being used to implement the rule. “In one of the more outrageous, callous, and openly xenophobic proposals of this administration, President Trump and Stephen Miller devised an immigration policy that would leave hungry children behind while doing nothing to address our country’s real immigration challenges at all. As always, their approach to immigration starts and ends at attacking and isolating immigrants,” Chu said. The administration estimates the change will affect about 380,000 applications annually, but immigration advocacy groups believe it will affect far more. The U.S. grants green cards to roughly one million foreigners each year, and advocates worry the new regulations could complicate a far higher number of those applications. More here.
Pramila Jayapal Announces Congressional Progressive Caucus Center 
Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA)
, first Vice Chair of the Progressive Caucus, on Tuesday announced the formation of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center -- an entity that will work to align messaging and policy initiatives between progressive outside groups and progressive members of Congress. The Center will help craft specific policy proposals, provide policy and personnel resources to members of Congress, and mobilize outside groups to help get those policies passed. She was joined in the announcement by Progressive Caucus Chair Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI). The pair said the group has so far raised $1.5 million for the first year of the Center, while donors have made a three-year commitment for a total of $4.5 million. They plan to hire nine staff members to work on outreach, policy, fundraising, and communications -- along with three to five Fellows to be placed in the offices of progressive members on Capitol Hill. The Caucus represents more than a third of the current Democratic Caucus, with 78 current members in their ranks. And they anticipate adding more to their numbers with some of the 40 candidates the group's political campaign arm has endorsed this cycle. "We're working so ... that we elect a Democratic president who can reverse some of the terrible things that Trump has done but also take us down a path of prosperity," she said. "That unites the caucus most of all." More here.

Eddie Bernice Johnson Intros Bill to Address #MeToo Issues in Science
Science has a sexual harassment problem. The academic workplace has the second-highest rate of sexual harassment, with 58% of women in academia experiencing sexual harassment compared to the military, private sector, and government, according to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Data shows that women of color are even more likely to experience sexual harassment and to feel unsafe at work. And the issue takes an economic and emotional toll on female researchers and, can sometimes, stifle their scientific contributions. To help address the issue, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) introduced the Combating Sexual Harassment in Science Act. The bill would expand research efforts to better understand the causes and consequences of sexual harassment affecting individuals in the scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematics workforce, including students and trainees, and to examine policies to reduce the prevalence and negative impact of such harassment. The bill would also direct additional research into policies focused on reducing the prevalence and negative impact of such harassment. “This behavior undermines career advancement for women in critical STEM fields, and many women report leaving promising careers in academic research due to sexual harassment,” said Johnson, the Ranking Member of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee. “It is vital that grantees, as stewards of Federal money, take seriously their responsibility to foster a healthy working environment as they train the next generation of scientists.” More here.

Elijah Cummings Calls for 2020 Census Investigation
The Trump administration is facing six lawsuits over a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The White House has attempted to prevent document requests and depositions of officials including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in these cases. Hence, Congressmen Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Gerald Connolly (D-VA), the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, are calling on Department of Commerce Inspector General Peg Gustafson to investigate the Department’s decision to add a question regarding citizenship status to the upcoming 2020 Census. Ross and other administration officials have said they decided to add the citizenship question “solely” in response to a request from the Department of Justice. However, documents made public as part of ongoing litigation show the request was initiated by Commerce and coordinated with then-White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon long before the December 2017 request from DOJ. “Democrats on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee have sought documents from the Departments of Commerce and Justice, as well as the Census Bureau, in order to conduct oversight on the matter,” the members wrote. “Unfortunately, our efforts have been frustrated by Secretary Ross’ refusal to comply with our oversight requests, the Department of Commerce’s failure to provide documentation due to ‘ongoing litigation,’ and the failure of Republican Committee Members to join our requests to obtain information, documents, or testimony. ... Therefore, we request that your office investigate the Department of Commerce’s process in adding the citizenship question to the 2020 Census.” Read the full letter here.
Here’s a Reason Nikki Haley May Have Resigned: to Make Some Cash
Nikki Haley’s announcement that she would be resigning as UN Ambassador sent shockwaves across the globe on Tuesday. As cable news regulars began speculating, here’s something that didn’t get mentioned: her personal finances. Federal ethics reports show Haley had debt between $525,000 to about $1.1 million in 2017. She owed $25,000 to $65,000 on two credit cards since 2016. She listed a mortgage and a line of credit each for $250,000 to $500,000. She listed ranges of debt and income on the disclosure records. The Post and Courier reports that she claimed to have $1,000 to $15,000 in the bank and earned roughly $10,000 last year, including a month’s salary as governor before she was confirmed as UN Ambassador. Her total does not include her salary at the UN, which is about $180,000 a year. It’s reasonable to assume that the former South Carolina Governor may want to cash in on her high profile positions. In her resignation letter to Donald Trump, she wrote: “As a businessman I expect you will appreciate my sense that returning from government to the private sector is not a step down but a step up.” More here.

Oprah Names New GM
Tina Perry has been named the new General Manager of Oprah Winfrey’s OWN TV network. She is currently the network’s EVP of Business and Legal Affairs, and she is also a board member. She led negotiations for Queen Sugar, which was created by award-winning Director/Producer Ava DuVernay featuring an all-female slate of directors. She also negotiated the overall deal with Lionsgate which has included one of the network’s most successful series launches to date with hit megachurch drama Greenleaf from Writer/Producer Craig Wright. And she negotiated the deal for Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil’s Love Is ___, as well the network’s two new series from Will Packer and the upcoming drama David Makes Man from Oscar winner Tarell Alvin McCraney, who directed Moonlight. In her new capacity, she will oversee all business and creative areas of OWN and report directly to Oprah. “I am honored and humbled to be given this opportunity to work with Oprah and Discovery to lead OWN to the next level of greatness,” said Perry. “Having been a part of the network from the beginning, I am excited for all we have accomplished and look forward to continuing our growth.” Prior to joining OWN, Perry handled business and legal affairs for VH1 and MTV at Viacom. The 1994 Stanford graduate went on to earn her Master’s from Oxford in 1998 before completing Harvard Law School in 1999. She officially assumes the new role in January and will be based in LA. OWN has become the leading cable network for African American women and has expanded its slate with a focus on premium scripted programming. The network currently has five of the top 20 original scripted series on ad-supported cable among women 25-54. Discovery, Inc. paid $70 million late last year to become the majority shareholder in OWN, hence the title thing. OWN was previously owned 50-50 by Discovery and Oprah’s Harpo. More here.
Essence Names New Leadership
Essence Communications has announced the expansion of its C-Suite team as the company prepares to go fully independent under its new ownership. Michelle Ebanks, who is currently President of the magazine, will become CEO of Essence Communications. The University of Florida graduate joined Essence in 2001 as a Group Publisher. Joy Profet, who has served as General Manager of Essence Communications for a decade, will take on the role of COO. Prior to joining Essence Communications, the UCLA graduate, also holds an MBA from Harvard, was VP of Business Development for NBCUniversal. Essence Communications has also added two new roles to the C-Suite, with Moana Luu joining as Chief Content and Creative Officer, and Darline Jean joining as Chief Digital Officer. Luu will direct the creation and dissemination of content across all Essence Communications platforms, including the magazine, website, social media, apps, experiential, video, and film/television. She previously served as Chief Creative and Brand Officer at TRACE Media Group, where she led the rebranding strategy prior to their acquisition by TPG. Originally from Martinique, Luu is fluent in French and English. Jean will be tasked with expanding Essence Communications' digital offerings, including building out an ad tech network and data and insights strategy, as well as reinventing Essence's mobile approach. Jean most recently served as COO for advertising technology platform, PulsePoint. The Stony Brook University graduate, who holds an MBA from Long Island University, also previously served as CEO for The About Group, a division of The New York Times Company. Essence Communications was purchased in January by multimillionaire personal care products mogul Richelieu Dennis, returning the 48-year-old company to Black ownership for the first time in more than a decade.

Yamamura is leaving his post as the Assistant Managing Editor of the Sacramento Bee, where he currently oversees news coverage for the paper including government, crime, education, courts, and breaking news. The Sacramento native joined the paper nearly 20 years ago as a Senior Writer, and has also served as Assistant City Editor and City Editor. The 1999 Cornell University graduate is a member of the American Society of News Editors. More about him here.

Ted Cruz Backs Out of CNN Debate Giving Beto O’Rourke Entire Hour
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is refusing to participate in a CNN town hall debate with his opponent Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX). His campaign initially accepted CNN's invitation but has since declined. With 29 days to go until the midterm elections, a RealClearPolitics poll shows Cruz edging out O’Rourke by an average of six points. Texas has not voted any Democrat to a statewide office since 1994. Cruz won the Senate seat handily by 16 points in 2012. Yet, narrowing the gap to just single digits shows O’Rourke has already pulled off a major political feat and victory is still possible. Both men have raised $23 million apiece in the most recent reporting period, with O’Rourke receiving much of his donations in small, individual amounts -- he has refused to take PAC money. Cruz is the personification of Tea Party Republican activism, while O’Rourke is running as an unabashed progressive. The path to victory will be dependent on the ground game. The average number of Republican votes in gubernatorial and midterm Senate races in 2010 and 2014 has been about 2.8 million, while the Democratic vote total in those races has been approximately 1.9 million. O’Rourke must motivate young voters and Democratic-leaning Latinos. Cruz’s campaign did not give a reason for why they backed out of the CNN debate in McAllen, Texas, on October 18th that will be hosted by Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash. The two competitors squared off in a September 21st debate and are expected to face off at least one more time in an October 16th debate in San Antonio. More here.

Supreme Court Denies Native Americans’ Request to Strike Down Voter ID
The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a request from a group of Native American North Dakota residents who are challenging a new state law that requires voters to present identification that includes a current residential street address. Native American communities often lack residential street addresses because the postal service does not provide residential delivery in these rural Indian communities. As a result, tribal IDs use P.O. boxes, which are not sufficient under North Dakota’s new law. The residents argued the new rule disenfranchises a sizable and disproportionate share of the population because many are Native American voters. The District Court agreed and temporarily blocked the North Dakota Secretary of State from enforcing the new requirements during the primary elections, but the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocked that court order last month. The challengers submitted an urgent request to SCOTUS Justice Neil Gorsuch asking him to toss out the 8th Circuit stay, arguing it has left thousands of Native American voters unable to cast ballots. But the court denied the request without explanation. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, however, filed a dissenting opinion, which Justice Elena Kagan joined. Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not take part in the decision. The Court’s order will likely make it harder for Senator Heidi Heitkamp, considered the most vulnerable Democrat in the Senate, to retain her seat in November. She won her seat by less than 3,000 votes in 2012 with a strong backing from Native Americans. She is the only statewide elected Democrat, and her “no vote” on Kavanaugh has arguably put her in political peril. Republicans have claimed the changes to voter ID requirements are intended to stop voter fraud, even though there is little evidence supporting in-person fraud. More here.

Meet the Black Woman Clerking for Brett Kavanaugh
Research shows that prestigious one-year Supreme Court clerkships -- which have long been considered a golden ticket to a top-tier legal career -- were going overwhelmingly to white males. Fewer than 2% were African Americans, 1% were Hispanic, and only a quarter were women. Newly sworn-in Justice Brett Kavanaugh made history over the weekend by becoming the first SCOTUS judge to hire an all-female roster of law clerks -- keeping a promise he made during his confirmation hearings. Among them is Kim Jackson. The 2017 Yale Law School graduate was a former law clerk for Kavanaugh on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. She worked as the Articles & Essays editor of Yale Law Journal, and she was one of 18 women who signed a letter attesting to Kavanaugh’s mentorship of women. Jackson also worked as a Law Clerk on the Federal District Court for DC Judge Dabney Friedrich -- who was nominated by Donald Trump and dated Kavanaugh in the 1990s. The Chicago Defender notes that it will be interesting to see Jackson’s role in Kavanaugh’s rulings that directly affect Black people. One very real possibility might be that the now conservative-leaning court could overturn Obama-era regulations that would adversely affect HBCUs this term (more on this in tomorrow’s Beat DC). Kavanaugh supporters noted that two of the three Black clerks at the Supreme Court this term previously worked for him. The other three clerks appointed by Kavanaugh are Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, and Sara Nommensen, each of whom worked for appeals court judges appointed by Republicans. More here.
Covington & Burling LLP Promotes New Partners
International law firm Covington & Burling LLP, where Barack Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder serves as Partner, has promoted several lawyers adding them as Partners. Alice Ahn, who is based in San Francisco, focuses on patent litigation involving computer software, electronics, telecommunications, and semiconductor technologies. The 2003 Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology graduate earned her Master’s from Georgia Tech, and went on to complete her law degree from UC Berkeley. She is fluent in English, Korean, and Japanese. Brianne Bharkhda, who is based in DC, represents clients in high-stakes patent litigation. The University of Pennsylvania graduate, who earned her law degree from Harvard, is a member of the DC Asian Pacific American Bar Association and South Asian Bar Association. Laura Kim, who is also based in DC, serves as Vice Chair of the firm’s advertising and consumer protection practice group. Kim provides compliance advice and represents clients responding to inquiries from federal, state, and self-regulatory bodies on a wide range of issues. She spent 12 years at the Federal Trade Commission where she served as Assistant Director in two divisions of the Bureau of Consumer Protection, as well as Chief of Staff in the Bureau of Consumer Protection and Attorney Advisor to former Chairman William E. Kovacic. The Yale University graduate earned her law degree from Harvard. Sergio Urias is based in NYC and serves as Co-Chair of the firm's private equity practice group. He represents private equity funds and their portfolio companies in a wide range of corporate transactions primarily in Latin America, including domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, recapitalizations, leveraged financings, restructurings, reorganizations, growth equity investments, and other corporate transactional matters. The bilingual attorney, who is fluent in English and Spanish, received a Master of Laws from Harvard and his law degree from Escuela Libre de Derecho in Mexico. Amy Wollensack, who is also based in NYC, serves as the other Co-Chair of the firm's private equity practice group. She represents private equity and other corporate clients in a wide range of complex transactions including leveraged buyouts, recapitalizations, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, and other transactional matters. The University of Richmond graduate received her law degree from Washington University and her Master's in Nursing from the Medical College of Virginia. More about the new partners here.
Judge Rules DOJ Attempt to Tie Federal Funding to Immigration Unconstitutional
In another blow to the Trump administration’s anti-immigrant policies, a district court judge in California on Friday ruled that the Department of Justice cannot withhold federal grant money from San Francisco over its sanctuary city policies. Judge William Orrick ruled that, because the funds were appropriated by Congress, DOJ’s attempt to restrict the funding are a violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers. The legal challenge concerns a July 2017 announcement by the DOJ that barred cities with “sanctuary” policies from receiving funds through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Programs -- which supports law enforcement efforts at the state and local level -- if they didn’t comply with new rules for the grant that required cities to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement. “It is worth emphasizing that the evidence before me indicates the opposite of DOJ’s rhetoric. ... In contrast to DOJ’s unsubstantiated view, California shows that imposing the challenged conditions may damage its law enforcement efforts,” Orrick wrote. “The record demonstrates the lack of evidence supporting [the Justice Department’s] position, that it failed to consider important problems with its conditions and has repeatedly offered explanations that are counter to the evidence.” The decision followed similar rulings in Chicago and Philadelphia -- other cities with sanctuary policies.

Obama Transportation Secretary Joins Lyft
Anthony Foxx
, the former Transportation Secretary under President Barack Obama, has joined Lyft as its Chief Policy Officer. He will also advise the company's President and CEO. The 47-year-old former lawyer is expected to focus on developing more partnerships with governments and reshaping mass transit systems in cities. "[Lyft] remains at the forefront of meeting our nation's comprehensive mobility needs, but works hard to do so in partnership with key stakeholders," Foxx said. "They recognize the extent to which the Lyft platform can bring people together while connecting us to the places we go.” While serving in the Obama administration, the 1993 Davidson College graduate who completed NYU Law School in 1996, helped create a committee on vehicle automation in 2017. The focus was on helping bring self-driving vehicles to market safely and smoothly. Prior to joining Lyft, Foxx was consulting and speaking across the globe. Before serving as Transportation Secretary, he served as Charlotte, NC’s youngest Mayor and the city’s second African American Mayor. He is the second prominent Obama official to join Lyft. Longtime Beat DC readers will recall that former Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett was named to the company's board last year. Lyft, which is still significantly smaller than Uber, reached the one-billion-ride milestone in September, and has expanded into offering bikes and scooters -- another area Foxx will focus on. He will be based in DC. More here.
Nathan Cummings Foundation Announces New Director of Racial and Economic Justice
Lavastian Glenn has been named the Nathan Cummings Foundation’s Director of Racial and Economic Justice. In her new role, the Wake Forest University graduate will work to advance solutions to the climate crisis and growing inequality. Glenn most recently served as Program Director at the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, which works to alleviate poverty and increase social and economic justice in 11 Southern states. Prior to that, she served as Executive Director of Neighbors for Better Neighborhoods, a grassroots support organization in North Carolina, and served in program roles at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Forsyth County and at Grosvenor Neighborhood House. "This is a time when racial and gender injustice, the reality of climate change, and the need for government accountability are undeniable,” said Glenn. “It is encouraging to see leaders in philanthropy build institutional capacity to better understand how all these forces are currently operating to create an unprecedented threat to humanity and the social fabric of this country. Now more than ever, social movements and marginalized communities need allies in philanthropy who understand the history and complexity of shifting culture and changing systems of oppression.” More here.
