Republican strategist Dallas Woodhouse illustrated his argument that Hillary Clinton‘s had engaged in criminal conduct Thursday by taking out a pair of handcuffs and holding them up during an MSNBC interview. Woodhouse, the executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party, defended the state party from the allegation that they were trying to suppress the vote. “We don’t have a suppression vote problem in North Carolina, the Democrats have a depression problem,” he said. “And you know why? It’s very simple,” he said, brandishing the cuffs. “Their candidate, if elected, could have these on Inauguration Day.”
Speaking of GOP voter suppression in North Carolina, this is just in from Reuters:
In emails, state and county Republican officials lobbied members of at least 17 county election boards to keep early-voting sites open for shorter hours on weekends and in evenings – times that usually see disproportionately high turnout by Democratic voters. Reuters obtained the emails through a public records request. The officials also urged county election boards to open fewer sites for residents to cast ballots during early voting that began on Oct. 20 and ends on Saturday.
