Summary

“If Senator Sinema’s position remains, she’ll extend that century of white supremacy’s chokehold on our democracy.”And as Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) argued on the Senate floor before Christmas, the rule imposes a supermajority threshold on Democrats’ efforts to protect voting rights that does not stand in the way of GOP attempts to curtail them in the states, where simple majorities were sufficient to pass 31 new voting restriction laws in 19 states last year.Although Sinema’s speech appeared to doom efforts to pass the two bills, which would invalidate many of the new GOP laws’ harshest provisions and establish federal standards for voting rights, the Kings and other civil rights activists will stage events and call for the immediate passage of the legislation in Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and other cities next Monday, to coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Day.“We’ll be in Phoenix this weekend to remind Senator Sinema what Dr. King once said: ‘The time is always right to do what is right,’” Waters King said in the statement.Reporter, HuffPost
