Disabled Air Force veteran James Berrie wasn’t expecting what happened to him.
All he wanted to do was vote.
Instead, he couldn’t.
MSNBC had set up shop in a handicapped parking spot and was unwilling to move in order to accomodate him.
From Daily Wire:
A disabled Air Force veteran says an MSNBC news crew blocked his way into a polling site in Houston when it parked in a handicapped parking spot.
“Went to vote, and found this waiting for us,” James Berrie, who has multiple sclerosis, wrote on Facebook. “The only van accessible spot and they’re filming in it. We asked them to move, pointed out how it was wrong, then went to vote, because it takes time to load up. But came out and still there. Not even packing up, still getting ready for their shot.”
Berrie also said in a TV interview with a CBS News affiliate that the MSNBC crew kept telling him they would move shortly.
“’We’ll move in like three minutes. We’re going live. We’ve got a shot. We’re going live in like three minutes. We gotta do this,’ and we’re just like, ‘No. You have to move. It’s not right. You know it’s not right,'” Berrie told the affiliate.

MSNBC reporter Mariana Atencio apologized:
We made the wrong call today by using a disabled parking spot for our live shot in TX. There’s no excuse. I apologize to the two people who were on their way to vote as it’s one of the most important parts of our democracy; we’d never want to jeopardize anyone’s ability to do so

Democrats love to talk about voter suppression, so what is this?
MSNBC wouldn’t allow a man to vote.
That sounds exactly like suppressing the vote.
