Matt Bevin says he lost #KYGov because the left was "able to go into urban communities" & "public housing projects." wfpl.org/bevin-says-he-…

1st: OK?

2nd: He isn't saying the words, but we know what he means.

3rd: Within days of taking office, Bevin disenfranchised 140K ppl.
I fear that no response can capture the repulsiveness of Bevin's remarks, and so I don't want to try, but this much had to be said.
Where is this coming from?

After he lost in 2017, Roy Moore framed the mere fact of black turnout into evidence of fraud, in a racist ploy.

Those are the words Bevin is not quite saying, but obviously it's more than subtext. And sets up 2020.
The only response that matters: Bevin can say what he wants. He lost to someone who pledged to quickly restore the right to vote to 4% of KY's adult population (!).

And also a reminder Beshear can do more. He has the power to enfranchise twice as many.
