After long week sharing some good news: I’m writing new book! It's story of anti-democratic efforts to entrench white minority rule but also movements to resist it. Here’s news from Publisher’s Marketplace. It builds off Give Us the Ballot & thrilled to work w/ @fsgbooks again https://t.co/xWNsLPnLqW

The real court packing was when Mitch McConnell blocked Merrick Garland 8 months before election but confirmed Amy Coney Barrett 8 days before election when 65 million had already voted

Phony populist Josh Hawley is now claiming "woke" corporations are victimizing people like him for merely defending "election integrity" in Georgia. Yes, the leader of the effort to subvert Biden's electors really said that. I unloaded a rant in response: https://t.co/0TvaCon1ik

5 of 6 conservative Supreme Court justices were appointed by GOP presidents who initially lost popular vote & confirmed by senators representing minority of Americans This is why we need to expand/reform the courts

Hours after I tweeted this US had its 134th mass shooting this year, in Bryan TX How are Texas Republicans responding to gun violence? By making it harder to vote & requiring sports teams to play national anthem

National Review, which earlier in week said fewer people should be voting, now ludicrously claims Stacey Abrams is responsible for Jim Crow 2.0 Preserving 3 weeks of early voting is entirely different from passing 16 different voter suppression measures to reduce Black vote https://t.co/JHThgLN6q0

By some of the Left's reasoning, Georgia’s long descent toward a new Jim Crow hellscape began ten years ago with legislation strongly supported by none other than . . . Stacey Abrams. | by @richlowry https://t.co/aOpr30lrvT

Okay, both Dade Phelan and Dan Patrick invited us to point to places in #HB6/#SB7 where there is voter suppression. So here's a thread of me doing that in SB7. First, the restriction on 24-hour voting: https://t.co/HcFL4aw5WD

Joe Manchin thinks that an insurrection driven by lies & attempting to throw out millions of votes is the same as legislation that would expand voting access for millions of Americans. Absolutely absurd false equivalence https://t.co/eY76EAfcfj

@ArthurDelaneyHP Manchin is essentially saying that the people who stormed the Capitol had legitimate grievances about voting, and Congress has to honor those when passing voting rights legislation https://t.co/fmgPUEsnzs

Are you willing to get rid of the filibuster to pass it? Because that’s all that matters https://t.co/o1mBE9Vwv7

Voting rights are fundamental to our democracy. That’s why we cosponsored the For the People Act, legislation protecting Americans’ voting rights and the integrity of our elections. https://t.co/7Qnk6v7N76

Joe Manchin represents a state that is 1/22 the population of California & 92% white yet he can singlehandedly block policies supported by 70-80% of Americans. This is why the US Senate is so broken

Because Trump couldn’t “find” 11,000 votes to overturn Biden’s victory, Georgia legislature is trying to make it easier for Republicans to find them in future elections. This is what law is all about & no amount of revisionist history can disguise that https://t.co/qYBI01eXn9
