Here’s what’s happening in Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial fund-raising fever dreams:
Republican candidate Pete [Snyder] announced his campaign is launching a Trump-style voter suppression operation. … And they’re hiring Trump-lackey Ken Cuccinelli to run it. … Pete Snyder is tapping Ken to run the same kind of racist, anti-democratic voter suppression operation Donald Trump ran.
And here’s what’s actually happening in the real world. From The Washington Free Beacon:
Virginia’s Department of Elections shut down its voter information portal for “scheduled maintenance” during the final day Republican voters in the commonwealth’s largest county were able to register for the party’s upcoming convention.
The website was taken down on April 9, a day before the April 10 deadline for Republicans in Fairfax County to register to participate in next month’s nominating convention. When voters attempted to locate their required voter number on the state government’s website, an error page read, “We are in the process of performing updates to the Citizen Portal. Due to these changes, the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable.”
