With Democrats expected to hold onto their House majority while losing several seats to Republicans, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants to change election laws so that Republicans will be unlikely to win elections in the future.
In a letter to House Democrats, Pelosi said that the party would look to introduce “election reform” legislation on the first day of the new legislative session next year, according to Breitbart.
Some Republican lawmakers detailed their objections to such measures, asserting that they are certain to lead to even more election fraud in future elections.
Pelosi promised that the chamber would pass the legislation anyway, saying that it was a “first day” priority for Democrats.
Encourage more fraud
Pelosi and House Democrats already passed the “For the People Act” last year, which provides a blueprint for what they say will be trying to get through Congress again this year.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said last year that the act “does its best to exploit and expand voter fraud loopholes.”
The Republican Senate stopped the bill, which purported to expand voting opportunities but actually criminalized political speech and forced taxpayers to fund campaigns they oppose by giving millions to candidates for campaigning.
The bill also overrules state laws governing elections in several ways: allowing all felons to vote, requiring all states to offer early and mail-in voting, and prevents states from finding out if voters also voted in another state.
Republican Senate majority essential
The GOP is expected to keep control of the Senate as long as Republicans can win one of two Georgia runoff elections in January, which would keep Democrats’ radical legislation at bay for the time being.
Given the concern surrounding alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election, however, plenty of Americans are sure to be worried about the direction Pelosi and House Democrats want to take future elections.
Irregularities have been reported in Georgia, including Atlanta-area precincts not allowing poll watchers to observe ballot counting and a machine glitch that prevented people from voting for several hours in one precinct, the Washington Examiner reported.
Now, all eyes will be on the Georgia Senate runoffs to make sure no irregularities occur in those races.
