He lied over and over again again. Donald Trump has lied over and over again and again and again. Poisoning our democracy, light a fire below Republican Legislature who immediately die most extensive voter suppression Efforts in at least 80 years. Just a note on how despicable a Man is Donald Trump. He lost an election legit.
He can’t stand it was his failure and he succeeds a lie, a big lie. And win over so many people this light with the help of News media and others Commentators who lie as Well. Again Donald Trump with his despicable lies, got a fire republican legislatures, and they started most of them extensive voter suppression Efforts in at least 80 years.
More than 250 notes and 43 States were only introduced between the months of January and February that would be restrict voting rights. Do you want to know how many were introduced during a similar period last Year? The year before, Donald Trump told this big lie? 35. 35 and 2020, more than 250 in 2021.
Today in June there was nearly 400 bills introduced. The only thing that has changed was between 2020 and 2021 Donald Trump’s big lie about massive fraud. And now, in States like Georgia and Iowa and Florida and Montana, this one Proposals become law under the malevolent guise of Electoral integrity.
Fuehrer Schumer was right. The rise in voter suppression laws in the Republican states is being driven by Trump’s big lie, and the only way to stop the attack on voting rights is to act at the federal level.
Tomorrow’s vote is the first step in a complicated dance that will hopefully lead to the expansion and protection of voting rights for all.
