“Republicans show they don’t trust the voters”

Jennifer Rubin column for WaPo:

President Trump tweeted triumphantly on Monday, “Just won big Supreme Court decision on Voting! Great News!” The great news in his book is a 5-4 decision allowing Ohio to remove people from the voting rolls who haven’t voted in every election. Specifically, if they haven’t voted in two years, they get a postcard in the mail, and if they don’t respond, they have four more years to vote. Then they are taken off the rolls.

What if they throw away the postcard thinking it is junk mail? Too bad. What if for six years they cannot find someone worth voting for? Too bad. Off they go. You would think the Trump administration and the five conservative justices didn’t want just anyone who wishes to vote to be allowed to do so.
