Vote suppression in @NYGovCuomo's New York: a thread.
this fraudulent message went out from a fake-Democrat IDC member and Republican ally. Please vote @RJackson_NYC if you live in this district
sounds like this is an electioneering violation
that last one is from a friend of mine, and what they told his wife is a straight-up lie:…
note that my brother's best friend and the guitarist in my high-school band are both represented in this thread. that's two people in my immediate social circle alone.
Perhaps challenging a woman to prove she exists on a day when you're likely fielding hundreds of similar complaints isn't the appropriate response to that question.
Don't be so hard on yourself:

1. This is the second of two primaries in this state, for no apparent reason
2. It's on a Thursday, a day no one associates with elections
3. People who want to vote should be able to.

There's more than one way to suppress.

This is all before the work day and rush hour end and many people get home from work to vote.
some context for the strange Reform Party mixups you see above
another part in an ongoing saga from upthread
To give a sense of the scope here, people affected in the tweets above include the NYC Mayor's son, a DNC Platform Committee member, a prominent Clinton-supporting journalist, vast swathes of people in public housing, my brother's best friend, the guitarist in my high-school band
Please click through and read the thread that starts with this tweet. It's a powerful picture of the toll disenfranchisement takes.
you'll want to click through and read the post explaining this one.
I think i screwed up the threading—spending hours linking to dozens and dozens of cases of voter suppression will do that—but I want to make sure you see this one.
I'm gonna stop doing this now. Here's a thread that serves as a closing statement. Thanks for reading.
