It’s much, much worse in Michigan than we even realized
Last night, Rachel Maddow broke a huge story that has been happening since Republicans took over in Michigan in 2011 and has gone completely under the radar.

Pay particular attention to around 12:30 where they show it in action. It’s astonishing.
but, but, but, DEMOCRACY
Wow, that’s terrible.
I think for this fact alone, Michigan is getting +5. Sort of a “the whole damn system is wrong” criteria I’ve decided to add.
