    New federal lawsuits were filed in five different states Monday, alleging that thousands of black voters are illegally being purged from voter registration lists by Republican officials and threatened with intimidation by the campaign of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

    Democratic officials in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada argue that the Trump campaign, led by notorious longtime advisor Roger Stone, is “conspiring to threaten, intimidate, and thereby prevent minority voters in urban neighborhoods from voting.”

    As this nation's population no longer can be a reflection of white voters in general-or white haters in particular:


    Our options (via voting for truly progressive candidates in local and state elections etc) makes black voters a true challenge to the white status quo...

    A new report has revealed that North Carolina Republicans conspired to limit the operating hours of early voting polling places, in the hopes it would limit minority turnout.

    Emails uncovered by Reuters through a public records request revealed that local Republican leaders lobbied at least 17 county election boards to limit the hours that voting sites could stay open — particularly to cut down on weekends and evenings, when Democratic voter turnout tends to be higher.

    They also insisted that county election boards open fewer voting sites. State Republican officials claimed they opposed keeping polls open during evenings and weekends because they wanted to conserve county resources.
