MITCH MCCONNELL RECEIVED DONATIONS FROM VOTING MACHINE LOBBYISTS BEFORE BLOCKING ELECTION SECURITY B

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell squashed two bills intended to ensure voting security on Thursday, just one day after former special counsel Robert Mueller warned that Russians were attempting to sabotage the 2020 presidential elections "as we sit here."

McConnell said he wouldn't allow a vote on the bills because they were "so partisan," but, as previously reported, earlier this year McConnell received a slew of donations from four of the top voting machine lobbyists in the country.

"Clearly this request is not a serious effort to make a law. Clearly something so partisan that it only received one single solitary Republican vote in the House is not going to travel through the Senate by unanimous consent," said McConnell on the Senate floor.

The plans would likely burden the two largest electronic voting machine vendors in the United States, Election Systems & Software and Dominion Voting Systems, with new regulations and financial burdens. Together, the companies make up about 80 percent of all voting machines used in the country and both have far-reaching lobbying arms in Washington D.C. Many of those lobbyists have contributed to the McConnell campaign, reported Sludge last month, an investigative outlet that focuses on money in politics.

1. And of course, this won't make one damned bit of difference to...

Moscow Mitch. He is disgustingly corrupt and vile. Doesn’t even bother to hide it anymore. He’s proud of it.
Too much power.
No integrity.

3. Removing Mitch McConnell from office is just as important

As removing Trump. Everyone please donate to Amy McGrath, if you can, she can beat McConnell. This nightmare must end!

5. I hope Dems make this a huge issue in the election.

This is the kind of straight line that voters can understand.

7. Moscow Mitch can't profit from paper ballots

Neither Putin nor the Gangsters Of Putin profit from paper ballots.

Electronic voting devices cannot be verified by the voter and the count cannot be verified by the public.

Paper ballots can be verified by the voter and the count can be verified by the public.
