It is telling that the Trump Admin has requested no funds for election security grants + House GOP has failed to fund them. In fact, the Republican-backed Financial Services Appropriations bill which will be on the floor this week reduces this fund from $380M to zero.

Until we, and that means all of us, say enough is enough to the lies, to the bigotry, to using distraught children and anguished parents as political pawns, then the consequences of our inaction will be a stain on our nation forevermore.
