…for myriad resources for that very important chapter in the story… things like:

A quote from the above link that sums up a lot:

“Rights groups say voter suppression was key” by Tony Pugh, McClatchy Washington Bureau, Friday, November 11, 2016:
“When we look back, we will find that voter suppression figured prominently in the story surrounding the 2016 presidential elections,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.”

Perhaps worst of all, what appears to be a crime— comes with its own coverup!

“North Carolina and Ohio refused to release their Crosscheck lists on the grounds that all these voters, more than a million in those two states, are subjects of criminal investigation, which allows them to keep the information confidential.”

If the lists of removed voters cannot be examined, how can we know if there is a crime being committed?

America needs to be clear on what just happened. We must understand how voter suppression works, and elect people who will fight back against it.
