“It looks like Trump is trying to trick people into filling out “census” forms online”
Trump cronies have found yet another scheme to manipulate redistricting:
➢ The RNC is sending out political mailers that look like official census documents. (The state of Montana even warned voters about the scam.)
➢ The Trump campaign ran deceptive Facebook ads to trick people into filling out fake “census” forms.
Let’s review all the ways Trump and Republicans have attempted to manipulate the 2020 Census in order to supercharge their gerrymandering:
➢ They tried to add a discriminatory citizenship question to depress census participation among immigrant communities and communities of color. If they’d been successful, Republicans would have gotten more seats than they were due in Congress and state legislatures.
➢ When the Supreme Court shot down their plan, they started compiling other types of data to try to diminish minority voices during redistricting.
➢ And now they’re using misleading mailers and online ads that look like official census documents which could depress census participation.
There’s no limit to how low they’re willing to stoop, David. But we’re committed to fighting them tooth and nail until we achieve a fair census and fair elections.
Time is running out before voters go to the polls for the last time before redistricting. Will you rush a donation NOW?
