The GOP knows that it can’t win WITHOUT CHEATING.
WITHOUT VOTER SUPPRESSION.
We had gotten this news from Georgia.
Yes, because of pushback and publicity, the attempt to close SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THE POLLING PLACES IN A MAJORITY BLACK COUNTY was defeated.
But, you know these demons never sleep.
So, then, Texas, which is getting scare shytless of Beto’s campaign to take out Rafael Cruz, is proposing this:
Does this sound familiar?
Because, the same thing was proposed in Alabama- another state with Voter ID laws…
And, then, we got this national news last week.
White House blocks bill that would protect elections

WASHINGTON — A bill that would have significantly bolstered the nation’s defenses against electoral interference has been held up in the Senate at the behest of the White House, which opposed the proposed legislation, according to congressional sources.
The Secure Elections Act, introduced by Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., in December 2017, had co-sponsorship from two of the Senate’s most prominent liberals, Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., as well as from conservative stalwart Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and consummate centrist Susan Collins, R-Me.
Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., was set to conduct a markup of the bill on Wednesday morning in the Senate Rules Committee, which he chairs. The bill had widespread support, including from some of the committee’s Republican members, and was expected to come to a full Senate vote in October. But then the chairman’s mark, as the critical step is known, was canceled, and no explanation was given.
As it currently stands, the legislation would grant every state’s top election official security clearance to receive threat information. It would also formalize the practice of information-sharing between the federal government—in particular, the Department of Homeland Security—and states regarding threats to electoral infrastructure. A technical advisory board would establish best practices related to election cybersecurity. Perhaps most significantly, the law would mandate that every state conduct a statistically significant audit following a federal election. It would also incentivize the purchase of voting machines that leave a paper record of votes cast, as opposed to some all-electronic models that do not. This would signify a marked shift away from all-electronic voting, which was encouraged with the passage of the Help Americans Vote Act in 2002.
“Paper is not antiquated,” Lankford says. “It’s reliable.”
They have no problems with Russian interference in our elections – BECAUSE IT HELPS THEM.
Please get that through your head.
A political party would welcome the subversion of our democracy by a HOSTILE FOREIGN POWER because they believe it HELPS THEM.
They are TRAITORS, ALL.
DEMOCRACY ITSELF IS ON THE BALLOT IN NOVEMBER 2018.
and, take 5 people with you.
