    She should have been Biden’s running mate.

  • Susan O’Doherty

    She should have been Governor of Georgia 🤷‍♀️

    Disgraceful how it was stolen from her in broad daylight. A brilliant woman.

  • urallidiots

    it was stolen from her with record turnout within her own voting constituencies?

  • Susan O’Doherty

    With her opponent overseeing the results and disqualifying qualified voters, yes.

  • Karl Junkersfeld

    “This week, a federal appeals court ruled that Texas could keep restricting mail voting for people under 65, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that the mailing of absentee ballots should be paused until it decides whether the Green Party’s presidential nominee should be on the ballot. Both were seen as potential impediments to voting that were likely to benefit Republicans.”

    ” Four months after a federal judge ruled that it was akin to an unconstitutional poll tax for Florida to require that people with serious criminal convictions pay court fines and fees before they can register to vote, an appeals court narrowly overturned that decision on Friday.”

    Politically motivated voter suppression is so sad and undemocratic. Very depressing.
