Judicial Watch Fights For Election Integrity on Capitol Hill
Judicial Watch remains front and center in the fight for clean elections. From the historic election integrity victory in LA County, to the current election-related lawsuits against Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Colorado, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton reminded Weekly Update viewers Friday that “Judicial Watch is on the ball and on the march in favor of the rule of law.”
“We are facing a crisis,” Fitton explained. ”The Left … wants to severely restrict the abilities of the states to manage their own elections.” “They want to undo virtually every clean election law in this country,” he continued. “Under their agenda … they would ban all voter ID, impose ballot harvesting, and undermine the very notion of election integrity.” While these are concerning developments, Fitton reminded viewers that there is hope. “The Supreme Court issued a knockout blow to the Left’s tsunami of harassing lawsuits challenging virtually any effort by any state to modestly increase the security of elections and minimize the impact of voter fraud.” In fact, in response to the recent Supreme Court ruling, Fitton believes the Left has become “desperate to short circuit the efforts of states to implement security measures such as voter ID.”
Ignoring the partisan fray, Judicial Watch has taken the issue directly to Congress. Testifying before both the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties and the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Judicial Watch attorneys Robert Popper and Russell Nobile addressed the two houses of Congress on the importance of maintaining and protecting strong election security measures. As two former federal officials who were tasked with enforcing election integrity measures at the Department of Justice, Popper and Nobile used historical evidence to support Voter ID laws and to dispel “pop culture” notions of reduced voting access across the United States. Quoting Russel Nobile’s Senate testimony, Fitton explained that “data, not pop culture nor hyperbole from those that oppose race-neutral election integrity laws, tells the truth about ballot access in America.”
“I can’t tell you how proud I am of our team … I encourage you to go watch their testimony!” Fitton concluded. Make sure to click here for Robert Popper’s testimony and here to hear Russell Nobile. If you’re concerned about the Left’s attack on election integrity, support Judicial Watch today.
