What would you think if it was also the case that prominent house Democrats suddenly were talking about you (one pointing you out for scrutiny to the DOJ, the other personally writing accusing you of voter suppression and airing that accusation on two cable news networks predisposed to suspect those of your political persuasion)?
What if the result of all this were several significant outlays for petty fines and overlooked permits, & etc., not to mention costs for legal counsel. What would you think if you were assured that you were not under criminal investigation despite all this?
Getting back to the conspiracy hypothesis- if you were these folks and asked to put your thoughts into words, well, you might say something like this:
“If these efforts are intentional, politically motivated, and widespread across multiple states, they could amount to a criminal conspiracy to deny legitimate voters their constitutional rights.”
Catherine says she knows of at least one other group that received government inquiries about its relationship with True the Vote, and she suspects more did, too. And other Tea Party groups decided not to form nonprofits at all after learning about her experience, she says. “They were scared,” she explains, “and you shouldn’t be scared of your government.
Meanwhile, Catherine says the harassment has forced her to seriously reconsider whether her political activity is worth the government harassment she’s faced.”
or (inclusive sense here) some other righty ne’er do well,
