This goes in the defiintely-sure-it’s-racist category:
[quote]Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton requested a federal investigation Wednesday into long voter wait times during Arizona’s presidential preference election.
“Throughout the county, but especially in Phoenix, thousands of citizens waited in line for three, four, and even five hours to vote,” he wrote in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
“In Phoenix, a majority-minority city, county officials allocated one polling location for every 108,000 residents,” the letter read.
“The ratios were far more favorably in predominantly Anglo communities: In Cave Creek/Carefree, there was one polling location for 8,500 residents; in Paradise Valley, one for every 13,00 residents; in Fountain Hills, one for 22,500 residents; and in Peoria, one for every 54,000 residents.”[/quote]

Amazingly, the decision about which polling places to close was made by a Reublican, and the decision to close them in the first place was made by four Republicans on the election commission overruling the one Democrat. Funny how it constantly turns out that way.
