Donald Trump loves to complain about rigged elections and fictional voter fraud.
But now he is making a very clear move to put his thumb on the electoral scale for Republicans up and down the ballot, by interfering with the 2020 Census.
According to a report from Politico, Trump is considering Thomas Brunell for deputy director of the Census Bureau — a position usually held by a nonpartisan mathematics expert. Brunell, a Texas-based Republican political science professor, has zero experience in statistics, and there are disturbing questions about his ability to conduct an impartial analysis.
Per Politico, Brunell “has testified more than half a dozen times on behalf of Republican efforts to redraw congressional districts, and is the author of a 2008 book titled ‘Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections Are Bad for America.’”
So after the next census Illinois and California populations will be around ~10,000. And pedophile-friendly Alabama will be at least 20 million. PoC just won’t exist, and red states get to count each blade of grass as a person.
