FreedomWorks Statement in Response to the Introduction of H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to House Democrats’ introduction of H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“Democrats are not relenting on their quest to federalize our elections. After Senate Republicans’ successful filibuster of H.R. 1 or the ‘Corrupt Politicians Act,’ Democrats are now pivoting to the wolf in sheep’s clothing H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.
“H.R. 4 is essentially H.R. 1 but under another name. The bill will punish election integrity reforms and put all 50 states under the thumb of unelected bureaucrats like Merrick Garland in President Biden’s Department of Justice through radical pre-clearance requirements. While states like Georgia, Florida, and Arizona are leading the way to protect safe and secure elections, Democrats in Washington are pushing yet another federal power grab.”
