How do you possibly hold an election tomorrow in Wisconsin?The Republican Party has systematically attempted to decrease voter participation as part of an ongoing electoral strategy, but this takes it to the next level. The Republican Legislature and the state Supreme Court have chosen to place political expediency over public health- it is absolutely disgusting.
The Governor of Wisconsin postponed the election, but it now appears to be taking place tomorrow. From theNY Times:
Indeed, for the better part of the last two decades, Republicans have sought to tighten voting restrictions — pushing stringent new voter identification requirements and sweeping voter roll purges that disproportionately affected people of color, the poor and the young. They have done so, they say, to curb in-person voter fraud, which, despite their claims to the contrary, is exceedingly rare.
You’d like to think that elected officials have more common sense than this lady:
But of course when the nation is led by a former reality show host who is now offering quack medical advice:
If you are a Wisconsin resident who feels compelled to vote in person tomorrow, I hope that the Jesus blood and hydroxychloroquine keep you safe.
