In an obvious attempt at voter suppression, Elections Supervisor Mike Bennett had his cronies on the Manatee County commission vote to shut down polling places where there are many Democrats and elderly, making it very difficult for them to exercise their right to vote.
I've always maintained that Manatee County was one of "haves" and "have nots." The "nots," as usual, just got the shaft again.
November is coming. Those who really want to be heard will find away to vote, because of or in spite of the obstacles Mike and his buddies try to put in their way.
Never miss a local story.
