Travis Waldron of HuffPost spoke with me about a long-time radical right-wing effort and how it's "close to coming true"
I agree with Toni that what they are doing in Arizona is criminal, and don't voters have a right to privacy with their vote. Are they going to use the information to solicit Democrats or perhaps after knowing who they voted for, harass or intimidate them, or put them on a blacklist where rights and privileges are denied? It seems that the State of Arizona has opened itself up to a class-action lawsuit of monumental proportions, which since it involves a national election, everyone's vote is affected and is a member of the class. I have lived through all sorts of Jim Crow shananigans, but this goes to extremes. similar to Joe McCarthy's communist witch hunts.
I'm also unhappy with FL's new voter suppression bill today. If we do not pass the voting act, we're potentially screwed.
Top corporate donors to the sponsors of SB90:
NONE of these corps publicly opposed the bill.
I was watching Rachel Maddow tonight. She was reporting on the Arizona ballot scam recount. I noticed that there was a camera over the ballot that a lady was looking at. The Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, is now allowed to have observers in the arena by a new judge. They are taking people's information. This is criminal. Who knows what they will be doing with this information.
Travis Waldron is an excellent reporter. Thank you for highlighting his story Michelangelo. He has also locally been on the white supremacist beat in my time covering the courts. I am hopeful that people who do not think about authoritarianism on a regular basis will be more exposed to knowledgeable sources like Waldron. We need to listen and adjust before it is too late to stop the anti democracy actors and their followers.
