Dems pass voter fraud advancement bill

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 13,  2019

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON — The Democrat-controlled House last week passed the “Voting Rights Advancement Act.” 

It’s the latest in a line of noble-sounding legislation that cedes more power to the federal government and erodes election integrity. 

The so-called Voting Rights Advancement Act, proponents say, returns the protections the U.S. Supreme Court took away in a 2013 decision. 

But that ruling merely ended federal intervention in states where voter safeguards have long been in place. 

The Heritage Foundation, calls the act “another thinly veiled effort by liberals” to give activists new powers to undermine election integrity laws — like those requiring voters to present identification at the polls. Heritage and other voter integrity advocates warn the bill doesn’t advance voter rights as much as it grants the federal government the ability to overturn voter ID laws. 

“This bill hijacks the Voting Rights Act (of 1965) by replacing the worthwhile goal of ending racial discrimination with the completely partisan goal of advancing liberal political candidates,” Heritage Action asserts in a recent statement. “Racial discrimination in our voting laws is bad and is illegal for good reason. This bill does nothing to advance the rights of minorities.”

Election experts say Wisconsin voter ID law has helped block fraud. Liberals have fought the law every step of the way, insisting it disenfranchises poor minority voters despite the fact that voter IDs may be obtained without cost. 

All but one Republican voted against the Voting Rights Advancement Act.   

U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Glenbeulah) said the bill is “nothing more than a federal takeover of elections, taking power away from citizens and states and instead giving it to politicians and bureaucrats.” 

The legislation is brought to you by the same people who offered an amendment that would change the legal voting age to 16, part of the far left “For the People Act.” That bill demands Election Day be designated a federal holiday, requires all states to offer automatic voter registration, restores voting rights to convicted felons, and institutes “independent” redistricting committees to do away with gerrymandering. 

Like the For the People Act, the Voting Rights Advancement Act stands no chance of passage in the Republican-controlled Senate.

  • Those darn liberals. They keep trying to make it easier for people to vote in this country. But we’re real fortunate here in Wisconsin. We have our freedom-loving majority party in the legislature as well as groups of unpaid yet dedicated lawyers (like at the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty) who believe deeply in the ideals of the American Constitution and are constantly on the lookout for ways to make voting more difficult.
