Lord-please-help-us headline of the day:
“Trump allies are handing out cash to black voters”
“Organizers have begun holding events in black communities where they lavish praise on the president while handing out thousands of dollars in giveaways.
“Allies of Donald Trump have begun holding events in black communities where organizers lavish praise on the president as they hand out tens of thousands of dollars to lucky attendees.
“The first giveaway took place last month in Cleveland, where recipients whose winning tickets were drawn from a bin landed cash gifts in increments of several hundred dollars, stuffed into envelopes. A second giveaway scheduled for this month in Virginia has been postponed, and more are said to be in the works.”
Summary: the GOP is categorizing black voters as a group of Americans who will violate ethical principles and sell their vote for a few dollars,
Shame! Shame! Shame!
Ending comment on the legality of buying votes::
Whoever makes or offers to make an expenditure to any person, either to vote or withhold his vote, or to vote for or against any candidate; and
Whoever solicits, accepts, or receives any such expenditure in consideration of his vote or the withholding of his vote—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if the violation was willful, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
Is there no end to the corruption?

One thought on “Trump allies are handing out cash to black voters”
Many years ago an old man that grew up in West Virginia told me that when he was young people would take him to the polls. They would wait outside and give him $5 after he came out of the voting booth. Looks like we are headed back there again.
