Crooked Dems and Their “For the People Act”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

from the American Thinker:

Do Democrats really care about election integrity?

What does “election integrity” actually mean to Democrats?  A perspective is provided by the Democrat-sponsored “For the People Act” (H.R.1 in the current Congress), a dreadfully misnamed legislative mess that purports to improve election integrity and transparency.  Some of its features are:

• Mandates automatic, universal voter registration, and makes it a crime to interfere with registration

• Allows voter registration at age 16

• Mandates early voting of at least 15 days and requires paper ballots

• Restricts and impedes routine voter roll maintenance

• Prescribes strict rules for redistricting and authorizes court takeover of redistricting• Regulates digital political advertising outright, and restricts corporate political engagement

• Requires disclosure of donors by Super PACs and so-called “dark money” groups

• Requires presidential candidates and incumbents to release 10 years of tax returns

• Supports a Constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United decision

• Supports statehood for the District of Columbia
