Election fallout: Blame abounds in House GOP leadership race

There are 46 comments on the Powhatan Today story from Wednesday Nov 14, titled Election fallout: Blame abounds in House GOP leadership race. In it, Powhatan Today reports that:

The speaker's gavel now out of reach, Republican Kevin McCarthy is poised to take over the shrunken House GOP caucus in closed-door elections that will determine party leadership and set the tone for the new Congress. The race for minority leader is McCarthy's to lose Wednesday, but the Californian, who is an ally of President Donald Trump, must fend off a challenge from conservative Rep. Jim Jordan, who has support from the right flank and outside groups as a co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus.

Reality check:
Republicans have made voter suppression a key tactic for winning elections and when it backfires, you guessed it, they blame the Democrats. We must fight for access to the ballot for all citizens, and for the federal oversight necessary to assure it.

Before 2020 the Democrats will try to get a bill passed where everyone votes. They have to vote illegals. The working blacks vote Republican, and there aren't enough women to carry the to victory.

Huh? There is no proof, and there has never been, of votes cast by illegals, it's nothing more than winger propaganda. As for the Constitution, have your 5 year old read it to you, moron!

They still are not allowed to vote. Both of them. Why the Dems even made a case out of it is beyond me.
Now ballots showing up in the trunk of a car and mixing bad ballots, deemed bad by the canvasing board, in with good ballots is not good. There has been numerous ahem "Mistakes " by these offices that have come to light.
We also just had a amendment on the ballot to re-instate voting rights for felons after they have served all their time and probation; it did pass. That's next time though and not this one.

Then why did we just have a complaint to a judge where the Dems were trying to get their votes counted here in Florida. It was for 2 people.

"Conclusion

In a recent newspaper commentary, attorney Michael T. Morley asserted that the media have identified hundreds of non-citizens who have been registered to vote and who have voted in past elections.[1]

This statement is true. The media and the Florida Department of State have identified hundreds of non-citizens who were registered to vote, and federal records show that some have voted in past elections."

Mostly if they are even registered to vote in other elections, then it just comes down to the diligence of the elections supervisors to make sure they do not vote in national ones. It is an issue.

I'm not sure it would help in your case. If you think Fox News is trustworthy, it could be terminal.

By the way, someone needs to tell Sean Hannity his face needs toilet paper.

I gave up on Hannity years ago...... When his program became repetitive night after night I tuned him out and went Kennedy on FBN...... Much more entertaining and varied,without the hype......

The GOP have only themselves to blame for the destruction of their party. The evangelical right wig have schemed to have their hands on the levers of power despite not having the numbers. So fake news, divide and conquer creationist tactics more at home in a science v religion debate. Were transferred onto the political stage to prevent accoutability and oversight of the damage being done to our democratic institutions by Trump and his enablers.
The Electiorate have rejected these right wing criminals and the process of reclaiming and renovating our political systems is underway. Roll on 2020 Democrats will take Congress and the presidency then consolidate the required progressive changes.

if you are a right wing fanatic loser feeling a bit low, cheer yourself up by ranting about liberal abortion freaks who murder babies

Then check the statistics and see that the single biggest group of womenhaving abortions self identify as white christian and conservative. Something not quite adding up for you there?
