A loss for @crookedmedia and @votesaveamerica but a huge gain for the legal profession and the future legal fights for voting rights. Good luck in law school.

Thank you to @BetoORourke for joining me today in an important discussion of voting rights in Texas. And a shoutout to @RevDrBarber who has an upcoming march from Georgetown, TX to Austin that Beto and I discussed. Join @DemocracyDocket's spaces every Friday.

Two observations about fighting voter suppression: 1. Cedric Richmond is right when he says "We’re going to have to meet this challenge in the courts, in the halls of Congress and in the streets.” 2. @RonaldKlain/@WHCOS is a progressive hero who I know cares about this issue.

I am uncompromising on voting rights because there is no middle point between the arsonist and the fireman.

Amid all the DC parlor games and who's up and who's down, it's actually pretty simple: Anyone who questioned the results of the 2020 election based on lies and conspiracy theories should be shunned unless they apologize and acknowledge the seriousness of what they did. Period.

That is why I proposed that Congress: ✅Make it a crime to threaten/harass local election officials. ✅Give officials the right to sue anyone who threatens or harasses them. ✅Exempt identifying information about local election officials from FOIA.

This is an existential crisis for our country. Without front line election workers we cannot have elections. Trump's Big Lie has many ways it can kill democracy.

"There’s another side effect of voter suppression laws: Limiting ballot access can have severe economic consequences for a state."

1. Trump did sue, he just lost because he was wrong. 2. Democratic governors did not change election laws. 3. Can't disagree with last sentence.
