The lines of communication between the luminaries at America’s premier journal of vote suppression since 1957 appear to be crossed. On the one hand, you have the Respectable Republican Elite assertions that the restrictions that Georgia Republicans placed on the vote at the behest of Donald Trump don’t actually restrict the vote at all, Scout’s honor, I have a study from a professor at Trump University to prove it.
