=EmperorNapoleon;13741350]This was an issue of principle for Sanders.
I’ve already addressed this is another comment, but to quote El Rushbo “if minorities voted GOP most of the time, the Democratic Party would have snipers at the border”.
Like pretty much all progressive causes, electing Democrats to office trumps the cause as needed.
Husted reports to Kasich so perhaps the question should be what Kasich has to gain by eliminating 15,500 voters from the equation.
Well, maybe, but by that logic, does that mean we can blame Barack Obama and Joe Biden for the Clinton e-mail scandal? Turnabout is fair play.
The question could also be asked, why not allow 17 year olds to form legal contracts as adults then? Why not let them get a credit card with 30% interest, and when they go broke and dad and mom have to pay the bill and take the credit card company, the judge says “Too bad, because you signed this as adult. Now pay up!”
But, I guess this case is designed to help Democrats on paper, as pretty much all of these false accusations of “voter suppression” are. Of course, if they had seen 2012 exit polls for 18-20 yo, they may have thought differently. shrug:
It is transparent voter suppression. These same citizens can vote in local elections, congressional elections, and in the presidential election yet somehow they aren’t allowed to vote in the presidential primary? Glad the Judge cut through that like a hot knife through butter.
It’s because they are 17 and deemed to not always be informed enough to make an important decision like voting for our leaders.
