Mitch fully embraces the 'evil' of raising money in politics, and truly believes money is free speech.
Lobbyists for both major voting machine companies have started contributing to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign as McConnell is blocking election security bills.
McConnell, a longtime opponent of campaign finance reform who battled the late Sen. McCain over the issue, made clear in December that the House proposal would never see floor time in the Senate.
McCain and Mitch fought each other over money in politics for years. Mitch wasn't ever going to lose, McCain saw the corruption and tried to call it out.
Mitch has been packing the courts, it is monopolization of our judiciary by far right extremists / conservatives.
McConnell sees what the progressives are doing, and is dedicated to stopping them at all costs.
Mitch fought endlessly to ensure corporate money in politics. Citizens United and Mitch McConnell completely overturned democracy and legalized corruption.
Mitch is manipulating our judicial system - Trumps court appointments are pushing terrorism on the people. Mitch is the most productive and destructive GOP in modern history.
Mitch blocked Merrick Garland under Obama, and now will indiscriminately fill any SCOTUS opening.
Mitch rose to fame during the Obama administration, for refusing to work with Obama on anything, which paved the way for Trump
