Quoted @marceelias

BREAKING: In a big win for voting rights in Virginia, Federal Court has ordered Virginia to make put final state House map on web and ordered the State to "immediately implement" the map "to ensure that the 2019 Virginia House of Delegates elections will proceed as scheduled."

Despite Dem scandals, new map for VA house will give Dems great chance to take back chamber this year. Could flip 6+ seats from GOP

The struggle for voting rights is the “defining civil rights issue of our time” - @EricHolder https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/02/eric-holder-sure-sounds-like-hes-running-for-president/ … by @AriBerman @MotherJones

This is happening across country. When Republicans don't like election results, they try to nullify them. Brazenly undemocratic https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/12/after-voters-passed-progressive-ballot-initiatives-gop-legislatures-are-trying-to-kill-future-ones/ …

Speaking in Iowa yesterday @EricHolder called fight for voting rights "defining civil rights issue of our time." He told me last week he wanted Dem candidates for president to focus more on voting rights issues & would decide on prez run by early March

BREAKING: We're suing New Hampshire to stop HB1264, a law that unconstitutionally restricts the right to vote. The state wants students and other voters to face criminal penalties if they don’t pay to change their out-of-state licenses after voting.

1000s disenfranchised by Wisconsin's voter ID law in 2016; GOP admitted passed to help them win https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/10/voter-suppression-wisconsin-election-2016/ … GAO found voter ID laws reduced turnout by 2-3% https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/govbeat/wp/2014/10/09/report-voter-id-laws-reduce-turnout-more-among-african-american-and-younger-voters/?utm_term=.b9538e080f34 … I could go on & on. Plenty of evidence voter ID laws suppress votes yet scant fraud

As it happens, I wrote today about how Dem implosion in VA could cost them control of post-2020 redistricting. That would be really big deal

Virginia GOP House speaker Kirk Cox, who could become gov if top 3 Dems resign, defended unconstitutional racial gerrymandering that diluted power of black voters https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/02/virginias-democratic-scandals-could-cost-the-party-control-of-state-politics-for-the-next-decade/ …

Big news! @prioritiesUSA is committing $30 million over the next two years to fight voter suppression and protect the right to vote. We will take our fight to the courts and ballot box.

One thing that's been overlooked in VA scandals: if GOP takes control of VA gov & oversees redistricting process post-2020 they will push through voter suppression & extreme racial gerrymandering to disenfranchise black voters

Replying to @tayari

Glad you asked. I am snowed in in MN and reading GIVE US THE BALLOT by @AriBerman . I recommend it all the time but never took the time to read it. Honestly, afraid it would make me mad . It does but it is so interesting.

West: "How do you define voter suppression?" Whitley: "I think it's irrelevant." West: "You're the SOS, sir. It is relevant to me if I'm going to vote for your confirmation...Easy question." #txlege

1000s could be wrongly purged based on totally inaccurate list of alleged non-citizen registrants but TX SOS says he doesn't know what voter suppression is
