Added in some missing legislator social accounts, updated some names #39
I'm going through the social media names now (it's amazing so many have been added since I swept a couple weeks ago). There's a few we won't accept yet in there - these things always require manual verification.
twitter.com/KellyAyotte - Her official page doesn't actually link to it (it's in the source code but not used) and the account doesn't link back to her official page. It looks official, but I really want to see at least a visible link on her homepage.
facebook.com/brianschatz, twitter.com/brianschatz - His page doesn't link to it, it's commented out.
Amy Klobuchar's Twitter and Facebook - she doesn't link to either on her homepage, only her YouTube account.
facebook.com/CongressmanRaulRuizMD - it looks right, but the official homepage for Rep. Ruiz links to a bad account instead. Still, without the homepage linkage, this one's not ready yet.
I don't want to add those accounts to the blacklist and forget about them, since I think it's likely they'll become their official, linked-to accounts. But they should be ignored, and deleted from the CSV before running the
twitter.com/PatrickMurphyFL - it's a campaign account. Patrick Murphy's actual site includes a couple links to it, but also a couple links to his real one, RepMurphyFL. I'll add this to the blacklist.
Jeff Flake's facebook.com/154010926645 didn't work for me when I visited it. His homepage still links to his campaign Facebook account, so let's leave this one blank for now.
The rest look good to me!
If you want to change this pull request, or file a new one, to just be the names file changes, I can merge it right away. If you don't mind, I'm happy to make all the social media changes myself, since I already went through and have the data ready to update myself.
