AOC Issues Trump Admin & Kris Kobach Census Smackdown

.


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Wednesday lambasted the Trump administration and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach for a plot to include a citizenship question on the census.

At a House Oversight hearing, Ocasio-Cortez demanded to get to the bottom of how the Trump administration short-circuited the process of creating a census so that the citizenship question could be included.

“The Census is a constitutionally mandated operation that we are required to implement every 10 years,” she told the committee. “Any change to the census — the addition of a question — usually takes five years of a process to make sure that it is vetted, that every word has been tested, to make sure that it is effective because it is one of the most important things that we do.”

According to the congresswoman, more than two years were “shaved off” the census process.

“I want to know why people like Kris Kobach with a documented history, a resume of voter suppression techniques in the state of Kansas,” she continued, “I want to know why folks like that have their fingerprints all over the most sensitive Census operations that we have.”

2. I think they should challenge this in court with the newly discovered info from some dead

Republican scamster's computer. That plus Kobach equals manipulation.

3. The Census case is already being decided by the USSC

IIRC, when the letter citing the GOP gerrymandering king was discovered, the plaintiffs added, or asked to have it added, to their case.

8. Thank you for posting this.

Things are already well in hand. Let's hope we can get what we need to stop gerrymandering.
