Spending Money to Suppress Others’ Votes

Spending Money to Suppress Others’ Votes

“They are spending money on voter suppression. They are spending money on letting you know they are spending money so that it disgusts you; so that you’re turned off by the whole awful spectacle they’ve created. They have the champagne on ice, ready to pop the cork on election night when you opt out.”

— Gov. Jennifer Granholm

There really is something wrong with an element of the Republican Party these days. It’s one thing to spend millions communicating your point of view, but investing this money with the sole purpose of disrupting another’s ability to vote—and then being proud of this act—tell me the rationalization for this type of thinking.

It’s like a group of people took this wonderful concept called resourcefulness, then twisted it and mutated it, shot it full of radiation and unnatural energy in order to create some new entity that can serve as justification for this type of behavior.

Using your giant pile of money to suppress another’s vote isn’t resourcefulness, or “out-of-the-box” thinking, or whatever you want to call it. 

It’s weakness.
