Nick Saban tells Joe Manchin to dump filibuster and pass Democrat bill to nationalize elections

It was reported this morning that Nick Saban, along with others, penned a letter to Joe Manchin to convince him to dump the filibuster and pass the Democrat bill which would nationalize elections:

FOX NEWS – University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban and other prominent sports figures with ties to West Virginia have urged U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin to support sweeping legislation to protect the right to vote.

Saban was joined by NBA Hall of Famer Jerry West, a fellow West Virginia native, in a Jan. 13 letter penned to the Democratic senator ahead of the Senate’s debate of the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act. The Senate took up the bill Tuesday, and it appeared headed for defeat.

In the letter, the group said the principles that help ensure fair and free elections are “now under intentional and unprecedented challenge.”

“We are all certain that democracy is best when voting is open to everyone on a level playing field; the referees are neutral; and at the end of the game the final score is respected and accepted,” the letter reads.

Saban said today at a press conference that he doesn’t want to get political, but believes that every American should vote or something:

I hate to break it to Saban, but supporting a leftist election bill is political and he’s absolutely endorsing the Democratic party by asking Manchin to support this monstrosity. He’s either severely ill-informed or a leftist at heart. I’m not sure which, but probably the latter.

I didn’t like him much before, but I like him even less now.
