    1. 2016:Russia hacked the election👨🏻‍🎤🤬

      2020: Anyone who questions the legitimacy of our elections is threatening our democracy👨🏻‍🎤🤬

    1. sadly…mail in voting was originally a right wing idea, to make it easier for the old fox news crowd to vote. BUT now that Dems use it….

    1. Every election republicans lose fraud will be the excuse and even more regulations will be imposed. This is not about integrity it’s about winning elections.

    2. I’m thinking won’t….for much longer! When people would rather believe a lie over plain, simple truth, we’re in big trouble!! 😔

    3. @mersk100 The idea that even more regulations will be imposed in the future is not gaslighting it’s a bold prediction based on history and the nature of partisan politics.

    1. MSM is hilarious, the irony of Biden arming the Taliban and the Media, once again, pointing the finger at the Right…but the Right did not arm the Taliban…hm.

  1. Bans 24-hour and drive-thru voting
     New vote-by-mail ID mandates
     Bans officials from mailing unsolicited mail-in ballot applications
     Empowers poll watchers
     New requirements for assisting voters
     Monthly voter roll checks

    1. This is part of the hissy fit the once great GOP is throwing as millions of people denounced trump at the polls.

    2. New??
      Ahem, those were Republican movements and campaigns.
      They just got mad that Dems were using them too.🤣😂

  2. Voters all over this country and vote out all these tyrant wanna-be governors unless they want to live in a tyranny

    1. If Texas leaves then so will most of the other state. You can have the west coast and all of the illegals and fires. No water. Goodbye!

  3. I like the part where she explains specifically How it violates the rights of minority voters. Very thorough and convincing. Now I see why its such an issue. Derp, derp derp derp
