ALG to Senate: Just Say ‘No’ to Schumer’s Election Rigging Bill

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning is urging Senators to vote against S.2093, the so-called compromise election reform bill in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is expected to bring the bill to a vote this week.

Manning issued the following statement:

“Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer will walk his party off of the election cheating cliff by having a vote that he knows will fail on S.2093, which is little more than the reviled S.1 in sheep’s clothing. The federalization of our nation’s voting system would ensure that the California way of counting the votes until election officials get the results they want will spread to the rest of the nation.

“Americans for Limited Government strongly urges every Senator to oppose this blatant attempt by Schumer to end basic ballot security requirements and common sense vote counting accountability measures by state governments. The principle of one person, one vote is precious to our republic, as is the expectation that every vote gets counted, yet Schumer’s bill would violate both of these foundational American principles.  It is time to put this attempt at a partisan election takeover into the annals of history under the chapter titled, really bad ideas that failed in the U.S. Senate.”
