Americans for Limited Government President Richard Manning issued the following statement in reaction to Reps. Terri Sewell and Jerry Nadler introducing H.R. 4, a second Democrat bill aimed at creating one-party rule.
“H.R. 4, the Federal Election Takeover Act Version II, is a desperate attempt to change federal election laws in such a way that Democrats can avoid being wiped out in next years general election.
“H.R. 4 would empower the Biden Justice Department to review every state and local election change down to the locations of drop boxes or voting locations. Given the Justice Department’s attempted legal intervention in the Arizona 2020 election audit and long-term opposition to basic voter identification requirements and ballot security measures, these bureaucrats cannot be trusted with this power.
“Americans for Limited Government urges the House of Representatives to reject this radical federal takeover of our election system. Trusting Biden’s Justice Department with national election security would do severe damage to the basic principle of one-person-one-vote. H.R. 4 should be scuttled.”
