Davis: House Democrats Put Political Power Above the American People

Key quote:

“Democrats on the Committee on House Administration held hearing after hearing on election issues where they produced zero evidence of voter suppression, likely due to the fact that voter discrimination and suppression remain against the law in this country. 

Yet, the bill before us goes far beyond the original VRA and would subject every state to pre-clearance – an extraordinary measure established in 1965 to prevent Democratic-led, Southern states, with a history of discrimination, from intimidating and preventing African Americans from voting. 

If you vote for this legislation, you are voting for a federal takeover of elections. You are removing the people elected at the State and local level to run elections from making decisions about how elections are run, including voter ID laws, and putting an unaccountable, unelected Elections Czar the DOJ—the Attorney General—in charge of all elections decisions in this country.”
