Just when you thought McConnell couldn't fuck with our elections any further he just topped himself.

Now he's shut down the FEC --the only federal agency tasked with investigating election security issues-- through the 2020 election cycle.

Rick Hasen, an election law expert at UCLA Irvine tweeted that the panel was already “dysfunctional” but “given the threat of foreign intervention in the 2020 elections, the inability of the FEC to act on an emergency basis is BAD NEWS."

And it gets worse.

McConnell left the FEC 1 member shy of the 4-member quorum required by refusing to replace 1 of 2 GOP members who resigned just days after he and the other GOP member refused to investigate a complaint that Russians gave $31MM to Trump's 2016 campaign funneled through the NRA.

Now isn't that bloody-well convenient for Trump and Republicans heading into what may very likely be the most important election in American history?
