Mississippi Republicans Take Trump Seriously AND Literally, Killing Early Voting Law

The Really White House on Thursday postponed the signing of an executive order to investigate the made-up voter fraud that literally no one but Pres. Jackhole says exists. The order will instead be signed Friday or Saturday or who the fuck knows, it’s not like they have a chief of staff running things over there.

In any case, the delay came far too late to matter to voters in Mississippi, where THE ACTUAL, SPECIFIC THING EVERYONE WARNED WOULD HAPPEN BECAUSE OF TRUMP’S EGO-DRIVEN VOTER-FRAUD BULLSHIT IS NOW ACTUALLY HAPPENING AND NO ONE IS PAYING ATTENTION.

On Monday, the Missifuckingsippi House Elections Committee unanimoufuckingly passed a RefuckingPUBlican! bill to legalize early voting and online voter registration. That’s right, Republican lawmakers in Mississippi–the state where civil rights go to get shot in the head and buried by the side of the road–voted to expand access to the vote. The House vote was praised by observers including Lord Jesus and his friend the Ghost of Martin Luther King, Jr.

HOWEVER.

On Wednesday, the state Senate Elections Chair Sally Doty (R-Brookhaven), told the Clarion-Ledger she’s going to kill the bill. “There are just too many concerns about online hacking–even allegations from this last election–to look at it this year [italics added for Donald fucking Trump].”

Asked why not approve early voting at least, Doty said, “I just don’t think we’ll take that up this year, as well.” Adding in her mind, “Make me.”
