Republicans in the U.S. Senate mounted an aggressive case Tuesday against Democrats’ sweeping election and voter-access legislation, pushing to roll back proposals for automatic registration, 24-hour ballot drop boxes and other changes in an increasingly charged national debate.

No kidding. You read an article like this, where words are purposely formed to twist around the fact that dems want fraud.
Oh, the Dems want to be allowed to offer money bribes? How original.
Sickening bias in the reporting.
They should have reported the Republican votes first. It was actually 9-9.
>> It would remove hurdles to voting erected in the name of election security <<
Election security is RACIST!!
Anything to keep the discussion off the voting machines and software issues...

There ought to be criminal sanctions for gaslighting the public like this.
