Published

on

The ACLU of Virginia this week warned that supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie may be using dirty tricks to suppress the votes of Democrats.

In a tweet before Tuesday’s voting got underway, the ACLU explained that Democratic voters are getting phone calls falsely telling them that their polling places had been changed.

“The Prince William Democratic Committee received notification this morning that Democratic voters in the greater Prince William area… are receiving calls from out of area telling them their polling place has changed,” a statement attached to the tweet said. It was not immediately clear if the statement had been made by the ACLU or a third party.

The statement noted that the calls had been identified as coming from Gloucester, VA and Adairville, GA.

“We must make sure that everyone knows that these phone calls are fraudulent and attempted voter suppression,” the statement said.

Several of them were hoping that Melania would be a strong voice on the world stage in her own right, and are frustrated that she has acted as nothing more than a mouthpiece for the president.

Published

Republican strategist Tara Setmayer on Tuesday delivered a brutal analysis of President Donald Trump's strategy to win reelection, which she dubbed "Make America White Again."

During a panel discussion on Trump ramping up his racist attacks on four Democratic women of color, Setmayer argued that appealing solely to angry white voters was the only hope he had of winning in 2020.

"It's 'Make America White Again,' according to the president of the United States, because everyone in the country is not welcome," she said. "If you have a difference of opinion, you're not welcome."

She then went on to document all the ways Trump is uniquely unfit to judge who does and does not belong in the United States.

Under a headline reading, "Defining Politics Down," the editorial seemed less concerned with Trump's racist attacks and more with the fact that he has made his racism front and center as the country gears up for the 2020 election.
