I agree.

Project Veritas's mission is to expose corruption, not make law suits. If they made no law suits at all, that would not be a detraction from what they are doing. And if they win law suits against them. That is a confirmation of what they are doing.

So if you believe that getting sued more than they sue, and they win most of the suits against them, proves a negative about them, that is stupid.

Project Veritas has caught bad folks, in their own actually spoken words, admitting their schemes "numerus times."

Project Veritas is about as credible as the late night bits where they send a comedian into a crowd to ask trick questions intended to get people to look stupid.

'Naked Ballot' Rule Could Lead To Thousands Of Pa. Votes Getting Rejected

Guess who brought the law suit the Trump Administration

So If you for get to place your ballot in a secrecy envelope A plan envelope with in another envelope your vote gets kicked out...

Another example of voter suppression in a swing state PS in 2016 this rule did not apply and was not challenged by the Trump campaign

because they think only dems vote by mail and might lose now its an issue .... Again the lust to gain power at the expense of the individual voter, is disgusting

no, that's why they constantly badger people to vote, remind people that they have a right to vote, shame people into voting, remind people that there are elections, remind people where to vote, sign people up to vote, send out unsolicited ballots....and on and on...they clearly think people are too stupid to do any of this on their own and if they don't "encourage" them they won't show up for them...it's a numbers game...which is par for the course for democrats

Texas governor just said only one voter drop box Per County. Houston with 5 million people and 1700 miles gets one dropbox. Shame the Republicans don't want people to vote

Well, the polls are open, so there’s that.

No election crime?

Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl -- two notorious conservative political operatives and hoaxers -- have been charged by the Michigan AG in connection with an alleged series of robocalls aimed at suppressing the vote,

Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman charged with multiple felonies by Michigan attorney general. Face several years in prison. And AGs in OH, PA, IL and NY also seem to be investigating the pair

Jacob Wohl is finally being arrested. This is a big deal because:

1) It takes another Trump henchman out of play just before the election, at a time when Trump is running out of henchmen.

2) These are state level charges and Trump can't pardon them

Not me bc I live in a Dem. state. But if I lived in Houston and didn't trust the system and couldn't get out of work to vote so I wanted to drop my ballot off and a drop box (like I'll do in CT) I might not have a car to drive the 100s of miles to that 1 drop box.

The bigger question is why won't the Rs make it EASIER to vote?

Don't be naïve. He has plenty of henchman. Haven't you seen a rally where they are all chanting vile things?

That answer of course is as plain as the orange shade in the face paint our president wears.

It would be easier if there were more drop boxes. I dropped my absentee ballot in the drop box down the street at city hall. It would suck if I had to share 1 drop box with 5M people and drive 100s of miles to use it.

Why don't the Rs want to make it easier to vote? Isn't that one of the most important things citizens should do? Why make it harder for people to vote?
