For this segment of mine and Jeff’s project to inform our readers about the various aspects and issues of the election, Jeff has addressed the situation regarding the Courts, the Judicial branch of our government.
In March, as part of myself and Jill’s project to help get out the vote in 2020, I warned about impending doom as it pertains to the courts in America. I highly recommend you read that particular post because it lays out all of the issues we’ll be facing in the coming months.
