Washington, D.C. – This week, national chairman of the Election Transparency Initiative (ETI) and former attorney general of Virginia Ken Cuccinelli testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary’s subcommittee on the Constitution as Democrats continue an attempted takeover of state election systems built on a myth of widespread voter suppression. If enacted, the Democrat legislation would override state-passed election laws, give veto power to federal bureaucrats, abolish voter I.D., legalize nationwide ballot trafficking, and eliminate commonsense protections helping to safeguard the integrity of our elections. The legislation would further allow illegal aliens to register to vote, impose a NYC-style campaign financing system funneling taxpayer dollars to corrupt politicians, and require unsecure and unverified forms of absentee voting.

Mr. Cuccinelli issued the following statement as part of his testimony:

“Both HR1/S1 and the discussion of nation-wide preclearance with no objective basis both require an assumption that America is worse off today as it relates to voting access than it was in 1965 – a patently ludicrous assumption, and one directly at odds with the Supreme Court’s conclusion in the Shelby County decision of 2013…

“…Voter I.D. has been particularly politicized by the radical left propaganda machine. Yet despite 6 months of media-assisted assaults on the basic common sense need for voter I.D., the American people have been unmoved in their overwhelming support for this basic election integrity measure.  It might explain why some very high profile propounders of the false ‘voter I.D. is racist’ propaganda – like Stacey Abrams – have suddenly flip-flopped to get on the right side of the polling.”

Recent polling shows the majority of voters, including Black and Hispanic as well as urban and independent voters, overwhelmingly support voter I.D. protections and want it to be easy to vote and hard to cheat.

The Election Transparency Initiative, a partnership between American Principles Project (APP) and the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), was organized to combat H.R. 1/S. 1 and advocate for state-based election reforms that voters can trust.
