1. Wow, debbie!

 

In a Thursday email announcing the DNC's plan to file the suit, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz wrote, "We all watched in sadness and frustration as Arizona voters waited in lines up to five hours long to cast a ballot in the March primary. The Republican election officials who decided to reduce polling locations by 70 percent in order to cut costs later admitted they never considered the impact these actions would have on Black, Hispanic or Native American communities.


She decided to step in, I will bet a meme that she is trying to fix it for the up coming election and trying nothing to help the people that lost their votes. I am sure she waiting long enough to not matter.

3. Do you mean.

 

For people in line, how much did it slow the line down, or the speed of the investigation? In the hearings a lady that worked there said many things did not help. The electronic machines messed up, no one was proactive in the lines helping the voters, lack of ballots (the head denied it happened then the poll worker flat out said she was at best wrong, then the people that had been swapped that had to get provisional, and the fact that the workers were not actively breaking up lines, and they were only given very small areas to work in (she said they had a huge building, but they only got one of the rooms. If you listen to the first set of hearings, there is a older lady that is on the list of people that signed up to talk, she is the poll worker. She is the one that said most of that.

5. If you have not watched the hearings

 

They are pretty good. The people that signed up are very passionate, there was one well know Hillary supporter telling people it was bad but nothing is going to happen, stop complaining about this and try to fix it for the general election instead. He got as much of a boo as he could in an area they would kick people out of if they made too much noise.
