Washington, D.C. This week, national chairman of the Election Transparency Initiative (ETI) and former attorney general of Virginia Ken Cuccinelli testified before the Committee on House Administration as Democrats continue an attempted takeover of state election systems built on a myth of widespread voter suppression.

If enacted, the Democrat legislation known as the Corrupt Politicians Act (H.R. 1/S. 1) would override state-passed election laws, give veto power to federal bureaucrats, abolish voter I.D., legalize nationwide ballot trafficking, and eliminate common-sense protections that place safeguards on 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:

“Today it is easier to register and vote than ever before in our history, regardless of where you live, what color you are, or any political party you affiliate with. We should be celebrating this as a great accomplishment, while always looking to improve. Instead, many in this body would like to impose a federal pre-clearance requirement nationwide – suggesting access to voting is actually worse today than it was in 1965, a patently ridiculous position.

“Yet the lying demagoguery coming from the radical left – including the title of this hearing – is not constructive and represents a large-scale attempt to knowingly convince the American people of a false narrative. Namely, that since the Shelby County ruling by the Supreme Court in 2013, America has been suffering from a rash of voter suppression. Thankfully, the data demonstrates that this narrative is blatantly false.”

WATCH: Cuccinelli Fights for Free & Fair Elections, Exposes the Democrats’ Attempted Takeover:

  • Opening Statement: Confidence in elections where it is easy to vote and hard to cheat exists only if the federal government doesn’t eliminate basic rules of fair and accurate elections.
  • Voter I.D. Protections: Americans of every party, race, and voting group demonstrate widespread support for common-sense measures integral to securing the election processes in our states.
  • Against Overriding State Elections: Since the Constitution was written, states have run our elections, but Democrats are seeking to nationalize state voting systems in an unprecedented federal intrusion.

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.
