Is Virginia's governor engaging in voter suppression of Republicans?

We thought it couldn't get much worse here in Virginia after Democrat Governor Ralph "Blackface"  Northam issued Executive Order 53 almost two weeks ago, closing all non-essential businesses for 30 days and K–12 schools for the remainder of the year, due to COVID-19.  Then, this past Monday, Northam went off the deep end, extending the order to the day after the June 9 Republican primary.  As a political stooge on a tight leash, Northam using a pandemic to interfere with the opposition party's primary election is not only possible, but business as usual.


One of these is Governor Northam.

On Tuesday, the chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia challenged Northam to explain what's behind his decision to set June 10 as the expiration date for his statewide stay-at-home order.  While other states with higher infection rates have set shorter deadlines more in line with the White House Task Force's guidelines of April 30, Northam's random date prompted RPV chairman Jack Wilson to remind Northam that the Republican primary for nominating all federal candidates is on June 9.

In these challenging times, we want to give the Governor the freedom to make necessary decisions without partisan rancor, but the timeline seems all too convenient, We ask that Governor Northam show us the data that led to his decision. It is not our opinion that the Governor is purposefully engaging in voter suppression, but an explanation would help to mitigate any concerns[.] ...

Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts echoed Mr. Wilson's call today. "Virginians should know they are still free to vote ... Governor Northam — publicly, in his own voice — should make that very clear to his constituents.

This is such an obvious move by the corrupt Democrat party to impact election day on June 9 that Virginia Republicans will be waiting a lifetime for "rational data" justifying Northam's decision.

The governor's spokeswoman, Alena Yarmosky, responded to Wilson, insisting that the order does not apply to government operations, which includes operating and participating in elections.  She also stated that the administration is encouraging people to vote absentee by mail.  She then did what all Democrats do: she predictably accused Republicans of doing exactly what her Democrat governor and his masters are doing

"I'd remind folks that this is not the time for partisan politics," Yarmosky said.  "The governor looks forward to continuing to work with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to protect the health and safety of Virginians."

Wilson later urged Northam to reassure voters publicly that the stay-at-home order will not interfere with their right to vote in person on June 9.  The governor stated that he would issue "further guidelines in the next few days."
