Under GOP Pressure, Congress Shortchanges Election Security
“…following the lead of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). McConnell, the senate majority leader, has steadfastly resisted expanding federal election security funding to aid cash-strapped states and local jurisdictions—even in his home state. After months of being accused of doing very little to stop foreign interference in elections, he relented in September, agreeing to a $250 million allocation.”
So Moscow Mitch McConnell approved a mere 1/8th of the budget necessary to protect our elections from foreign interference.
Gosh, I wonder where Moscow Mitch McConnell is Putin all the rest of the money?
