Punxsutawney Biden emerged from his basement after 70 days and it was clear he had not been working out on a Peloton bike. Looking even more feeble which made it apparent that he too would need an insurance policy if he were to win the Fall election. He would need a “get out the vote” big time and on steroids. Especially the Black vote after his mishap last week with them.
Enter the fixer he has chosen Rachana Desai Martin.
DETROIT (AP) — Joe Biden has hired a national director for voter protection, a role his campaign says will focus broadly on voter rights, including the disenfranchisement of people of color amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The campaign said Rachana Desai Martin will join its legal team, serving also as senior counsel. Martin, who has a strong background in voter protection work, previously worked as chief operating officer of the Democratic National Committee and as the DNC’s director of civic engagement and voter protection.
The pandemic has disproportionately affected people of color, especially black Americans who represent an outsize number of infections and deaths. An Associated Press analysis last month found more than one-third of those who have died are African American.
Several states are looking at remote-voting possibilities. Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said last week that all registered Michigan voters were sent absentee ballot applications. The move drew the ire of President Donald Trump, who threatened to hold up federal funding.
Voter protection will play a central role in Biden’s overall election strategy, the campaign said, noting that several states over the past few years have passed laws relating to voter ID and purges of voter rolls that could make it harder for people to vote. The campaign said it also expects significant disinformation campaigns targeted at potential voters.
The prelude to this move became apparent after several disastrous interviews on Friday and his effort to step up and out of the basement on Monday.
CNBC didn’t go so well. Joe Biden is going to beat Joe Biden.
And when in doubt go back after the energy folks and tell them they can learn to code. That should help the “get out the vote” in Pennsylvania and Ohio big time.
Yes, the Lone Ranger Rides Again. Just who is that masked man??
Other than this all is well in the swamp. The dead will rise and vote again.
