Apparently the governor of Tennessee just made some kinds of protest a felony, and if you get a felony in his state you lose the right to vote.

@trechnex This is unfortunately a really common occurrence in the US: GOP outlaws Civil rights for the polling bump with their base, law is then overturned in the courts for being unconstitutional (in this case a violation of the 1st Amendment).

This one is so blatant I expect a lawsuit by Monday and an injunction within the month. Eventually it'll be overturned.... Probably.
