Anyone remember the Obamaphone lady? Yeah. Now it's gift cards.
The biggest problem is that this behavior has been going on for years and nobody has done a damn thing about it. The Democrats didn't do anything because they benefit from it, and they can't win elections fairly. The Republicans didn't do anything about it because for the most part, the GOP is a bunch of spineless, weak, gutless pathetic politicians. It took Donald J Trump being elected President to stiffen their spines, and don't think for one moment they wouldn't go back into capitulation and sniveling as their MO if they had the chance.
This election was stolen.
