GOP Voter Suppression

Post by Stranger Mouse » Tue Apr 07, 2020 2:03 pm

I expect more of this type of thing will be heading over to the UK in due course

The situation in Wisconsin is astonishing. The GOP have effectively introduced a system where I you vote you risk your health (or life) by not changing the election date, the mail in ballot deadline, the number of people available to actually deal with the election and ensuring polling stations are closed.

Good podcast with transcript on it here

OMG

The GOP f.cked up. The Democrats still got the seat on the Supreme Court although I don't know how many lives it cost

And also it looks like the Mayor will also be Democrat

And this is what she has to say on the matter

Fantastic!

Sadly but predictably the first coronavirus cases officially linked to the election appear. Still early days for the resulting hospitalisations and deaths of course

I wish the GOP could be prosecuted for this.
