I got mad all over again when I read a Tweet from the Senior Senator from Texas, John Cornyn, saying "So illegal voting is more than zero; just how big a problem it is should be the subject of an objective investigation, maybe a commission." A bigger problem than the possibility Russia interfered with the 2016 election? Why are Republicans opposed to investigating that?
Want to know what happens in Senator Cornyn's home state regarding voter fraud? Read this article, Illegal voting gets Texas woman 8 years in prison and certain deportation.
I'm also angry the president has appointed Vice President Pence to investigate voter fraud. That's like putting the fox in charge of the hen house.
Who do you think is buying into all these falsehoods? Voters who are uneducated and want to remain uneducated. Republicans have always pushed the theory of voter fraud to keep down the minority vote.
Never before has it been so important to have organizations in place to fight this ugly demon. I'm going to suggest two organizations that can use your donations.
NDRC is the organization President Obama set up before leaving office to take legal action against redistricting, voter fraud etc. This group is already at work. You don't wait until 2018 to begin to do the job. They're already bringing in lawyers and making plans to stop some of this nonsense. I've already made a donation and will again.
Let America Vote is a brand new organization created to fight voter suppression. Jason Kander is a bright young man, possibly a good candidate for Democrats in the 2020 election. I'm reading very good things about this organization. I've also made a donation to it.
We must do everything possible to defang this ugly beast, the sooner the better.
