Trump, Repubs, Racists Eye Voting Restrictions
Trump’s choice of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general makes this more plausible. As a U.S. attorney in the mid-1980s, Sessions tried to prosecute three civil rights activists for voter fraud, when they were trying to help poor, elderly, and illiterate people to vote. They were acquitted, (Sargent, Washington Post).
Prosecuting voting rights activists as opposed to murdering voting rights activists is not progress to a rational mind.
