HR 1 Is A Direct Threat To Free Elections

The public isn't taking notice.

While more scintillating stories make headlines and generate salacious public interest, a House bill is winding its way through the legislative jungle that could pose a direct threat to free elections. It would institutionalize Democrat cheating and election fraud. Now, one group is tackling it head on.

FNC: “An outside group that backs Republican causes is going up in 15 congressional districts controlled by House Democrats with ads spotlighting H.R. 1 – the Democrats’ massive election reform and campaign finance bill. The American Action Network (AAN) on Monday is unveiling a new issue advocacy campaign targeting ‘the corrupt liberal campaign finance bill.’ The ads, shared first with Fox News, will be seen in House districts with Democrats who are potentially vulnerable in next year’s midterm elections, when Republicans hope to win back the majority in the chamber they lost in the 2018 midterm elections. The ads are going up in the congressional districts of Democratic Reps. Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01), Stephanie Murphy (FL-07), Carolyn Boudreaux (GA-07), Cindy Axne (IA-03), John Sarbanes (MD-03), Jared Golden (ME-02), Chris Pappas (NH-01), Tom Malinowski (NJ-07), Susan Wild (PA-07), Matt Cartwright (PA-08), Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07), Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15), Colin Allred (TX-32), Elaine Luria (VA-02) and Ron Kind (WI-03).”

“This bill is nothing more than a shameful attempt to shovel public funds to the campaign coffers of corrupt Washington liberals,” AAN President Dan Conston told press. “Especially in a time of unparalleled health and economic crisis, public funds should be used to help end the suffering of this pandemic – not to help Washington politicians get re-elected.”

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy also commented. “This is H.R. 1, so this is most important for Nancy Pelosi to hold on to her power…What we have to do is, people lose their confidence in elections, you’ll break society down and we will lose America as we know it. We know that there’s a real question, one of the confidence in the last election.

Do you think Nancy Pelosi's January 6th commission is just political theatre?

“Going forward, what you have to do is exactly this: You have to clean up the rolls. …  You have to sue to make sure you clean up the rolls. We’ve got to make sure there’s integrity…There’s a recall going on in California. I will guarantee you that Gavin Newsom makes sure that they’re checking the IDs of who signs that recall more than they’re checking the IDs of who’s voting in California,” McCarthy said. “You can’t have a mass ballot mailing to people who don’t even request it when these rolls are so bad.

“If you’re illegal, you can vote in a school board race. They want people to be able to vote who are not Americans. We need to have integrity and accountability and elections that people will trust at the end of the day. And that’s why we have to have reforms and that’s why H.R. 1 should be voted down.”
