The 2020 Presidential Election - Convention & General Election

Recommended Posts

Republicans know that universal voting access will end their party and they will do anything to suppress it. Trump knows he stands zero chance and will do anything to disregard it. This is a perfect marriage.

Knapp is right. This from the 2016 election:

Stanton's letter to the Department of Justice said Phoenix, a city where minorities comprise the majority of the population, got a disproportionately small number of voting locations compared with more Anglo-dominated cities such as Fountain Hills, Paradise Valley and Peoria.

 

For example, Phoenix had one polling place per 108,000 voters; Fountain Hills had one for every 22,500 voters.

Check the date on your linked article and you'll see which phase of the election is being discussed.  While it was a clusterflock, it's incompatible with a voter suppression conspiracy theory.

Same thing happened in 2018. Same s#!t, different year.

 

It's no conspiracy to suggest Republicans pull this stuff in lots of different states because they control so many of them right now. Far as I know Dems might pull the same stuff in Maryland or New York or Calorifonia. If you can find evidence of it, great, I'd commend you.

 

But I can dig up a lot more evidence of the GOP pulling this crap in a lot more places rihgt now and that suggests it's a very lopsided problem.

Newsflash, you're the 3rd ranking Democrat in the House. Don't tell the American people what they need to do. You're the one with any power. Talk to your GOP colleagues.

 

 

“That is why the American people had better wake up. I know a little bit about history, and I know how countries find their demise. It is when we fail to let democracy and the fundamentals of which is a fair, unfettered election. And that’s why he is trying to put a cloud over this election, floating the idea of postponing the elections,” Clyburn said.

The Trump administration has been accused of attempting to pressure another foreign country into helping Trump’s reelection prospects, according to a letter from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

That letter cites Brazilian news articles that report US Ambassador to Brazil Todd Chapman pressured members of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s administration to lower ethanol tariffs in order to support President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts.

In the letter, Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Eliot Engel demands Chapman explain an article in which the ambassador is said to have asked for the tariffs to be lowered as a “favor” from the Brazilian government to the Trump reelection campaign.

“Iowa is the largest ethanol producer in the United States…and could be a key player in Trump’s election,” an article in the Brazilian newspaper O Globo reads, according to the letter. “Hence the importance – according to Chapman – for the Bolsonaro government to do the U.S. a favor.”

Beyond the report in O Globo, the New York Times notes, another Brazilian outlet, Estadão, published a similar story based on its own reporting, with its journalists finding that Chapman had made the request, and was rebuffed by government officials.

Alceu Moreira, a Brazilian congressman, also told the Times that Chapman “had made repeated references to the electoral calendar during a recent meeting the two had about ethanol.”

Engel has called for Chapman to respond to the reports by August 4, and for him to provide “any and all documents referring or related to any discussions” with Brazilian officials.

If the reports are accurate, the letter states, Chapman’s actions could be in violation of the Hatch Act, which prevents federal employees from engaging in certain political activities, such as partisan campaigning for candidates.
