re: 200,000 votes suppressed
A shocking new report last week revealed that Wisconsin's oppressive voter ID law -- passed by Republicans and signed into law by Scott Walker -- prevented 200,000 people from voting. Donald Trump only won Wisconsin by 22,000 votes.
Our right to vote is under assault all across the country, and the consequences are catastrophic.
We have to fight back. Add your name and say you'll stand with Democrats to defend access to the ballot box.
The GOP's nationwide voter suppression campaign is being spearheaded by Republican governors and state legislatures, but you can bet that Donald Trump is doing his part.
Last week, Trump created a new commission that is specifically charged with investigating voter fraud, which study after study has proven is virtually non-existent -- more people get struck by lightning each year than commit in-person voter fraud.
And this commission will be led by Kris Kobach, the man responsible for some of the most heinous voting restrictions in the country, who has spent years lying about voter fraud in order to keep African Americans and Latinos from the polls. It's terrifying to think of the new voter suppression tactics he'll come up with the backing of the federal government behind him.
So we have to be prepared to fight back. Add your name and say you'll resist the GOP's attacks on our access to the ballot box. It's going to take all of us:
