A football ‘set play’ is plan of action to score. See how the Mississippi Voter Suppression playbook robs the poor to pay the rich.
“Reeves misspent money intended for state’s poorest residents … at least $77 million in federal funds intended for education and job programs for the state’s poorest residents were misspent or directed to wealthy, politically-connected Mississippians…” – WLBT
How do find which county has the most Federal funds that can be misused? Counties with the most Blacks and Hispanics? How will the funds be shared with accomplices? How do you make sure that the people you have robbed cannot vote you out of office? Follow the Mississippi Voter Suppression play with this map.
Hinds County runs out of ballots
People in Mississippi’s largest county are demanding answers about why some polling places ran out of ballots and voters had to wait for them to be replenished on the day the state was deciding its most competitive governor’s race in a generation. It’s unclear how many people left without voting, and activists and local leaders say election officials’ failure is shocking, especially in a state where civil rights leaders were beaten or killed in the 1960s and earlier to secure voting rights for Black residents.
“If you can’t vote, that’s a problem for democracy,” said Paloma Wu, a Mississippi Center for Justice attorney who filed one of two lawsuits to keep polling places open later than usual in Hinds County. – Alabama.com
Robbing the poor to pay your rich friends
“The nation’s poorest state used welfare money to pay Brett Favre for speeches he never made. The state auditor says $70 million in federal welfare funds went to Favre, a volleyball complex and a former pro wrestler…” – NBC News
“Mississippi Once Again Shuts Out Aspiring Voters. As the state votes next month, many residents with past felony convictions remain barred from voting for life even though a federal court ruled that the practice is cruel, unusual, and racially discriminatory…. Mississippi’s Republican governor, Tate Reeves, who is running for reelection this fall, has been hostile to loosening disenfranchisement rules.” – Bolts Magazine
