Bros for Bernie handed Wisconsin over to Trump!!! While Voter Suppression decreased Dem. Turnout!!!

(Before It's News)

So, Democratic voters didn't feel motivated and never bothered to vote, that was the difference?

Or was it voter suppression…kind of a big topic nationwide just before the election? Isn't it odd how voter suppression worries just magically disappeared now that the Republicans won?

The Nation's Ari Berman has this glaring reminder:

There were 25 debates during the presidential primaries and general election and not a single question about the attack on voting rights, even though this was the first presidential election in 50 years without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act

Fourteen states had new voting restrictions in place for the first time in 2016—including crucial swing states like Wisconsin and Virginia—yet we heard nary a peep about it on Election Day except from outlets like The Nation. This was the biggest under-covered scandal of the 2016 campaign.

For example, 27,000 votes currently separate Trump and Clinton in Wisconsin, where 300,000 registered voters, according to a federal court, lacked strict forms of voter ID. Voter turnout in Wisconsin was at its lowest levels in 20 years and decreased 13 percent in Milwaukee, where 70 percent of the state’s African-American population lives, according to Daniel Nichanian of the University of Chicago.

Thanks Bros for Bernie!!! Berman didn't mention this amazing fact: Those Bros for Bernie voted their conscience and went with opportunist Jill Stein, handing Wisconsin over to Trump:
