Herschel Walker is more than an unqualified candidate for the U.S. Senate, he’s a coward, hypocrite and politically convenient bigot.

Herschel Walker gets the “coward of the week” award.

THE CONTINUOUS MAGA REPUBLICAN EFFORT TO RIG THE VOTE

Architect of SCOTUS takeover funnels millions to groups trying to gut voting and discrimination laws | Salon

excerpt:

Flush with money after receiving the largest-known political advocacy donation in U.S. history, conservative activist Leonard Leo and his associates are spending millions of dollars to influence some of the Supreme Court's most consequential recent cases, newly released tax documents obtained by ProPublica and The Lever show.

The documents detail how Leo, who helped build the Supreme Court's conservative majority as an adviser to President Donald Trump, has used a sprawling network of opaque nonprofits to fund groups advocating for ending affirmative action, rolling back anti-discrimination protections and allowing state legislatures unreviewable oversight of federal elections.

It's no longer about voter id, or absentee ballots, or mail in ballots, or any of that other false pretense **** they were promoting so that they could do WHAT THEIR AIM IS TO DO - TO RIG THE VOTE IN THEIR FAVOR.

And that's precisely what they are doing:

By packing state election boards with Trump sycophants, domestic terrorists, right winged fascists, conspiracy theory quacks and the like.

By crafting election laws and policies that give them the power to refuse to certify elections, and to throw out election results they don't like.

By setting up paramilitary so-called "election police" and "poll watchers" SOME of whom have already gone from door to door demanding voter information from the citizenry.

By intimidating threatening and terrorizing election workers, local politicians, and other government workers and officials.

And by outright IGNORING judicial rulings on gerrymandering and other findings THEY don't like.all

The extent of their efforts, often ILLEGAL, to sow doubt in the election process, and to overturn and delegitimize the 2020 election knows no bounds, no low TOO low for them.
 
ALL in response to what lefties have done for years. Lie, cheat, and steal.

In fact Trump LOST VOTES in the recount.

and:

GOP action on mail ballot timelines angers military families - Yahoo News
Ohio's restrictive new election law significantly shortens the window for mailed ballots to be received — despite no evidence that the extended timeline has led to fraud or any other problems — and that change is angering active-duty members of the military and their families because of its potential to disenfranchise them.

MEANWHILE:

Wife of an Iowan GOP congressional candidate charged with 52 counts of voter fraud - AXIOS

52 COUNTS!

hmmmm. I wonder if she's going to get arrested at fkng GUNPOINT, like DeSantis sent HIS election GESTAPO to do to Black Floridian ex-convicts who mistakenly THOUGHT they had the right to vote. see:

Shocking video shows Florida man arrested at gunpoint under DeSantis’s ‘abominable’ voter fraud raids - The Independent

Bodycam Footage Of Black Floridians Being Arrested At Gunpoint For Voting Sparks Outrage - Comic Sands


I wonder if she's going to get SIX FKNG YEARS like Pamela Moses, who later got the charges dropped after proving she had cause to believe her rights to vote had been restored, and that evidence in her trial had been WITHELD. see:

Charges Dropped Against Pamela Moses, Who Was Jailed Over Voter Fraud - The New York Times

Naahhhhhhh.... She'll probably get off scott FREE, JUST LIKE MARK MEADOWS DID.

VOTING RIGHTS UNDER ATTACK - THE REAL FRAUDSTERS
.
THE MAGA SCHEMES FOR MINORITY RULE

These GOP-sponsored bills would restrict voting by imposing harsh criminal penalties: report - Alternet

Republicans have already filed dozens of bills to restrict voting in 2023 | US voting rights - The Guardian  
Measures in Texas would raise criminal penalties and create voting-focused GESTA.... correction... "law enforcement unit."

Court rejects Arizona Republican scheme to end early voting - The Hill

Judge strikes down Matt Gaetz claim voter suppression is free speech - Raw Story


Missouri Republicans are upset with the will of their voters, so they plan to change the rules - Dailykos

EXCERPTS:


Missouri has a long and proud history of ballot initiatives. There are always opportunities for voters to put items on the ballot and pass them beyond the state legislature, making direct changes to Missouri law.

The Missouri legislature has fought back against this practice before, most recently by dragging their feet and then pushing back against Medicaid expansion.

(But) With more ballot measures successfully passing, Missouri Republicans are becoming worried they can’t shape their government to fulfill their deepest, darkest desires, especially when the statewide voters turn them down.
