First They Want ID

Missouri looks into an anti-voter constitutional amendment.

I remember the days when every election was followed by an editorial lamenting low rates of American voter participation. But the legacy media doesn't cover, or even much mention, the methods the Republicans use to pursue their central strategy of voter suppression. It's a pretty broad spectrum, ranging from running negative ads to outright intimidation. For them, it's even more important than what Mark Penn thinks about bible toting porch sitters or 400 pound Tab drinkers.
