This will be a short post because I just got my second vaccine shot and I am wiped out. But, this story is just too important not to bring to your attention.
Here at Political Charge, we care about voting rights. A lot. And they are under sustained assault by Republicans in state legislatures in almost every state. Well, yesterday, Mother Jones published a report about a leaked video they received from a private event the ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation held for their top donors where they were bragging about their successes with getting voter suppression bills passed.
I encourage you to read the article, Leaked Video: Dark Money Group Brags About Writing GOP Voter Suppression Bills Across the Country. If you’re short on time, watch the 3 minute video inside the article, which you can also find HERE on YouTube.
It’s helpful to understand how these types of organizations are working to warp our democracy as they try to cement Republican power. And how important it is to pay attention to what’s happening in the state legislatures.
