The regressive early voting hypocricy

Everyone with a brain knows that the regressive scheme to disenfranchise Democrat voters through voter ID laws is a scam, plain and simple. But they at least provide a specious reason for so doing, voter fraud. Granted voter fraud has proven to be a red herring but now they're up to another tactic that has absolutely no reason whatsoever.

Rachel Maddow reports that in Ohio the Republicans are limiting early voting in Democrat-leaning counties, while allowing in it Republican counties. No shit. In the Rep. counties they are approving early voting on nights and weekends and not allowing this in Dem. counties. They know that the Dem. counties have a majority of the elderly, poor and lower working class, who are working during day-time hours and have difficulty getting to the poles. They traditionally go in the evenings or on the weekends. So once again the regressives limit their voting opportunities while expanding their own.

This is a blatant attack on rigging the election with no reasonable explanation whatsoever. They are now so brazen they don't even need to pretend there is a reason. They are so confident by their previous electoral success that they're just going to rig the election and to hell with anyone who protests, since they're convinced they have a mandate and the support of the majority. Really? Are you citizens going to allow this.
