Can you say rigged?Our democracy is fading. Until we clean up our election process we will be stuck w illegitimate corrupt leadership like Trump and McConnell.— Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) June 23, 2017
The 2016 presidential contest was awash with charges that the fix was in: Republican Donald Trump repeatedly claimed that the election was rigged against him, while Democrats have accused the Russians of stacking the odds in Trump’s favor.It's the #Stupid #Gerrymandering.
Less attention was paid to manipulation that occurred not during the presidential race, but before it — in the drawing of lines for hundreds of U.S. and state legislative seats. The result, according to an Associated Press analysis: Republicans had a real advantage.
Any party that relies on voter suppression, the Russians and gerrymandering to obtain power can't say it's patriotic or supports democracy.— Col. Morris Davis (@ColMorrisDavis) June 25, 2017
