Trump’s Postal Service Chair Has A Demonstrated History Of Active Voter Suppression As Republican Party Operative...l

 President Donald Trump’s selection for a key Postal Service position, Robert M. Duncan, once had a very different job: steering the Republican Party while it undertook some of its most brazen voter suppression schemes.

Duncan is now the chair of the Postal Service board of governors, but he previously served as general counsel and then chair of the Republican National Committee from 2002 to 2009, a time when the committee and its state counterparts oversaw an unprecedented escalation of voter disenfranchisement efforts in swing states.

From 2004 to 2006, when Duncan was the committee’s general counsel, party officials challenged the eligibility of at least 77,000 voters, a 2007 report by the nonpartisan group Project Vote found.

As it happens, one of the party’s favored tactics relied on the U.S. mail. In 2004, Republicans in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania sent thousands of nonforwardable letters and postcards to select voters — particularly minority voters — and used the mail returned as undeliverable to come up with voter registration challenge lists. 

Duncan’s history is the latest alarm bell for those fearful that Trump is attempting to undermine the U.S. Postal Service in order to win reelection.

Given Trump's incessant, yet totally unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud with mail in ballots, America should anticipate he will be working hard (through backdoor channels) to suppress the vote in 2020. Especially the vote of minorities who are very likely to vote democratic. Trump knows that with a record number of voters casting ballots he cannot win reelection. It is in Trumps' own personal interest that he does everything in his power to suppress the vote.

If the vote unseats Trump prepare for him to pull out all stops contesting the results. An action that will likely end up in the Supreme Court of America. Trump will not accept a defeat and his claim will be VOTER FRAUD. He has been telegraphing this for weeks. Count on kit happening when he loses.
