Why no outrage for new Kentucky election laws? They’re no better than Texas or Georgia


A Democratic governor signed an election integrity bill into law — with Republican support. 

In the hyperbolic, hyper-partisan political landscape we’re facing, this type of situation would be normally unthinkable. But in Kentucky, that’s exactly what happened. 

What followed was also a break from the norm. Instead of the traditional cacophony of media smears and outlandish claims against yet another governor trying to hurt voters, especially minority voters, Kentucky barely made headlines.
