Intellectual giant Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visited a Bronx polling site Sunday morning and railed against the current hours-long waits across the city to vote, labeling it a form of voter suppression.
“There is no place in the United States of America where two-, three-, four-hour waits to vote is acceptable,’’ the New York Congresswoman said outside a Parkchester polling site.
“And just because it is happening in a blue state doesn’t mean it isn’t voter suppression,” AOC said of the extensive waits and New York’s traditional Democratic Party leaning, according to video posted to ABC. “There is very clearly a problem. There is a lot of work to be done.
“But that being said, I am thrilled to see how many people who are overcoming this injustice,’’ AOC said. “We are going to overcome this hurdle, so that we can elect the folks that make sure this is not a problem in the future.’’
So to summarize…
Democrats: “Republicans don’t want mail-in voting because they want to suppress the minority vote in an effort to re-elect Donald Trump. They know folks are afraid to come out during a pandemic – especially Democrat voters.”
Also Democrats: “We have mail-in voting, but people are voting in-person anyway and willing to wait three-four hours to cast their ballots. That’s too long! This too is voter suppression!”
But Also Democrats: “Thank goodness we’re going to have Democrats in charge post-election who can prevent long-line voter suppression – especially in states already run by Democrats where voters are waiting 3-4 hours to cast their ballots in the middle of a pandemic.”
