The Montana legislature is one of a bushel full of red states that have introduced restrictive provisions impacting absentee voting, voter identification, same day registration and a raft of other election procedures.

Supporters of these largely Republican sponsored measures have predominantly cited increased election security and integrity as the impetus for their proposals. With an unspoken reliance on the manufactured lie, by the one and done ex-president, that massive voter fraud occurred to justify their efforts, Republicans push on to make it harder for many Americans to vote.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania Republican State Representative, Seth Grove, who authored and collected signatures asking Congress to reject Pennsylvania’s election results, now admits that the fraud that occurred in Pennsylvania was committed by, wait for it... Republicans!

Republican and Trump supporter, Sidney Powell who pushed Trump's election fraud conspiracy lie and who is now under the gun from a multi-million defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Machines, argues in recent court filing that no reasonable people would believe her election fraud claims! Is she suggesting that Trump supporters are not reasonable people?

Say it ain’t so, Joe! P.T. Barnum is alleged to have once said, “there's a sucker born every minute”. Of course Trump is a racist, totally a misogynist, petty and shallow, an ignorant, self-aggrandizing megalomaniac. But besides and above all these, he is a con man’s, con man.
