Virginia Voter Registration Site Is Down 'Accidentally' On Last Day To Register

An internet cable was cut "accidentally" and the whole voter registration process in Virginia is DOWN on the last day to register? Who is questioning whether this cable cutting is actually "accidental"? Everybody.

We've got a president continually threatening voter suppression, a pandemic, and now this.

Virginia Public Media:

It was not clear whether the cut was accidental or deliberate; representatives for VITA did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, among others, have called for an extension to Virginia’s registration deadline.

That decision will likely be up to a judge; in 2016, a lawsuit prompted by a similar outage caused a federal judge to extend registration by a day.

Who smells a rat in the era of Republican Dirty Tricks? Everybody.
