The governor of Tennessee has signed a bill that would remove protestors’ right to vote by making them felons. This also carries up to six years jail time.

We all know it’s not the conservatives who are protesting. This law disproportionally affects left-leaning constituents and forces them to choose between having a say in the next election and standing up for their rights. The state of Tennessee is making no attempt to hide the fact that this is being done to manipulate the vote.

How many constitutional amendments does this violate? I count two - right to assemble and cruel/unusual punishment.

I really, really hope the supreme court steps in on this one.
