Moscow Mitch folds on his protection of Russia ... a little bit.


After weeks of being taunted as “Moscow Mitch” for his refusal to consider measures to strengthen election security, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has backed an amendment that would do just that.

“I am proud to have helped develop this amendment and to co-sponsor it in committee,” McConnell said from the floor of the Senate.

The McConnell-backed appropriations amendment would give states an additional $250 million to improve the quality of their voting systems and strengthen their protections against foreign interference, according to Politico. As a result, the total funding for election security would increase to $600 million after the last fiscal year.

However, McConnell has yet to back the bipartisan election security legislation which Senate Democrats have unsuccessfully attempted to bring to the floor. His efforts to obstruct that legislation earned him the nickname “Moscow Mitch.”

“Senate Democrats believe this new funding is not a substitute for passing the comprehensive bipartisan election security legislation that experts say is desperately needed,” a spokesperson for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters in an email. (Schumer did praise McConnell’s backing of the appropriations amendment as “a step in the right direction.”)

By simply giving more money to the red states instead of making them actually protect themselves against Russian attacks it allows them to maintain control without any unwanted eyes snooping in on them. If Moscow Mitch touches something it's corrupt.
