Voter suppression tactics, not Russian hacking, stole the election for Trump
Below is an excerpt from an e-mail I recently received from the Democratic Governors Association. This group of fine Democratic governors tells the truth about Election 2016. It is evidence that the so-called resistance to Trump needs to move to states under Democratic control.
Voter suppression helped give Trump the presidency, Friends:
A new report shows that Wisconsin's voter ID law suppressed MORE THAN 200,000 VOTES, while Trump won by less than 23,000. Voter suppression helped Trump take the presidency, and now he's doing everything he can to undermine our democracy.
... And Republicans in Congress are rolling over and letting Trump's corruption go unchecked.
Voter suppression could cost us our democracy if we don't fight back!
Our Voter Protection Project is on the ground fighting to restore voting rights and build a Democratic firewall against Trump's destructive policies....
The e-mail was part of a fund-raising effort.
