Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) accused Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) of supporting GOP "voter suppression" on Monday over his refusal to back a key Democratic voting rights bill.

Ocasio-Cortez made the remark on Twitter while commenting on a retweet of a photo captioned "Today we are all @AOC."

Before accusing Manchin of supporting voter suppression, Ocasio-Cortez shared a Sunday tweet from Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) saying that Manchin's article "might as well be titled, 'Why I'll vote to preserve Jim Crow.'".

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) compared Manchin to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) during a CNN appearance on Monday.

Bowman said that Manchin "is doing everything in his power to stop democracy" while advancing "the work of the Republican Party by being an obstructionist.".

President Joe Biden also expressed what appeared to be frustration with Manchin and Sinema during a speech last week, saying that difficulties in passing voting rights reform were due in part to two senators "who vote more with my Republican friends.".

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Monday that Biden "considers Senator Manchin a friend" although "they may disagree on some issues.". »

Rob Zombie Officially Confirms His Next Movie is ‘The Munsters’!

Authored by

The Conjuring dates back to 2013, and each year since (with some gaps) has proven that horror thrives and survives.

Warner Brothers wouldn’t be acting so enthusiastically or extravagantly if horror was dead (a reported Crooked Man movie is still on the way).

It’s a late-50s sitcom episode with one psychopathic guest star, wholly content on copying Wan’s previous cinematic signatures blow-for-blow. »
