I’m at an excellent United Steelworkers conference on stopping voter suppression. It has been an excellent conference. I believe that we all have to devote time and effort and stay on the case to stop voter suppression.
Ironically, this morning a Republican voter registration operation was found cheating on voter registration in Florida in Palm Beach County and other counties throughout FL. These “voter registrars” would talk to people visiting in Florida and pressure them to register as Floria Republicans.
So we have Republicans all over America who are suppressing the votes of Democrats in Florida and probably other places around the country.
We have got to stay on guard and on watch for Republicans to try to protect voter freedom.
