They point to republicans pointing to voter frauds and "having no evidence" then simultaneously say democrat and black votes are suppressed without any evidence, or even a single anecdote from a person who is claiming this..... Then to continue, they say Democrats are looking for the vote of "an upscale southerner"!? what in the literal f#ck...?? these snob elitist New York Times commentators are nothing more than disgusting liberals. I mean honestly, just put DNC Times on the building.
