Al Sharpton: GOP Fraud Stole Wisconsin Election
Rev Al: WI Vote A Trial Run For November Election Theft
Issuing a call to arms, an angry Reverend Al Sharpton today claimed Republicans utilized fraudulent tactics to win yesterday's gubernatorial recall vote in Wisconsin.
Claiming the results "emboldened the right-wing", the MSNBC host told radio listeners it was a mere trial run for widespread vote theft designed to steal November's presidential election outright.
Comparing their loss to a boxing match, Sharpton told supporters they could either remain "groggy" after a hit on the head or "double-down and get ready to fight"
From today's Keeping It Real With The Reverend Al Sharpton:
AL SHARPTON: This Wisconsin recall election, I think I did my commentary from the Washington DC office this morning. It really is a wake-up call because despite that fact that clearly money was one of the main factors, it’s not going anywhere by November.
If anything, I think that it has emboldened the right wing, it has emboldened these billionaires. There was all kinds of voter-suppression schemes from ID [card required to vote], to not letting students vote and registration. It almost was a test run for what they’re going to do in November.
The question is what are we going to do about it? We can either act like it means nothing and it’s like in a fight and you got your head hit and you're groggy and you’re going to be in denial, or you’re going to admit that someone hit you hard, clear your head and let’s double-down and get ready to fight.
So, Reverend, what kind of response should we expect? Will it stay within the bounds of the law?
