In WI, MI, OH & NC lame duck GOP legislatures brazenly stripping power from Dems, overturning will of voters & passing new laws making it harder to vote

This is outrageous abuse of power & should be huge national scandal…
Lame duck GOP legislatures brazenly undermining democracy:

WI cutting early voting & stripping power from Dem gov/AG

MI nullifying Election Day registration & undercutting Dem sec of state

OH blocking new ballot initiatives

NC passing new voter ID law…
One party believes in democracy, the other does not. That's most important thing you need to know about American politics right now

Exhibit A: unprecedented GOP power grabs in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio & North Carolina…
Between Republicans committing blatant absentee ballot fraud to sway Congressional election in NC & brazen lame duck power grabs in WI, MI, OH & NC, GOP contempt for democracy on full display…
Wisconsin Dems won races for governor, senate, attorney general, treasurer & secretary of state in 2018

Dem candidates for state assembly got 210,000 more votes than Rs

Republicans got 46% of votes but 64% of seats b/c of gerrymandering. That's how lame duck coup even possible
