Republicans are slamming Democratic lawmakers for a partisan “power grab” bill that would normalize parts of the 2020 election fiasco that caused voters to lose trust in it.
While Democrats say there are amendments to the original drafting of the bill, giving Republicans the chance to provide input or object to certain provisions, one Republican representative pointed out that 49 of the 56 alterations came from the left side of the political aisle, “hand-selected by a small group in the rules committee.”
“Let’s be very clear. The arguments being distilled on the floor today is that Republicans, my colleagues and I, are bigots. Why? Because they use fancy words like ‘voter suppression’ to say that we are wanting to tamp down people’s access to polls. And nothing can be further from the truth,” Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas said on the House floor on Tuesday. “Heaven forbid we want to use voter identification. Heaven forbid we want to honor the will of the people, through their legislatures in the states, passing rules to make sure that our system is actually working, using voter identification that the American people use to fly, that the American people use to do everything else. If I demand that, I’m a bigot.”
“The argument being distilled on the floor today is that republicans, that my colleagues and I, that we are bigots …
“Heaven forbid we want to use voter identification; heaven forbid we want to honor the will of the people”

The 800-page “For The People Act of 2021,” if passed, would grant Democrats the power to overhaul state election processes and impose new regulations on political advertisements and donors, giving Congress “ultimate supervisory power over federal elections.” While Democrats tout the bill as a way to strengthen voting rights, many critics, including former Federal Elections Commission officials and privacy activist groups, expressed their opposition to the legislation because of its susceptibility to “partisan control” and other provisions, such as the public exposure of citizens’ private donations to nonprofits and other organizations. Congressional Republicans are also concerned that HR 1 could permanently alter American elections for the worst.
“Besides giving the uni-party in the swamp power, funding politicians with taxpayer dollars, and preventing the use of voter identification laws, Democrats will permit ballot harvesting and mandate nationwide mail-in balloting,” Republican Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona wrote in an article for Fox News. “Democrats are so enamored of power that they want to legalize cheating in elections.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell also condemned the bill as a “power grab,” saying it is “exactly the wrong response” to the “distressing lack of faith in our elections.”
“They want to force all 50 states to allow the absurd practice of ballot harvesting, where paid operatives can show up at polling places carrying a thick stack of filled-out ballots with other people’s names on them,” he said. “They want to forbid states from implementing voter I.D. or doing simple things like checking their voter rolls against change-of-address submissions. They want to mandate no-excuse, mail-in balloting as a permanent norm, post-pandemic,” McConnell said. “This sweeping federal takeover would be exactly the wrong response to the distressing lack of faith in our elections that we’ve recently seen from both political sides.”
Others took to Twitter to express their concerns with the legislation, noting that it would expand opportunities for voter fraud and “mass manipulation of elections.”
HR 1 is the pretext to abolishing the Electoral College.

Requiring an ID to vote is common sense.
HR 1, the “For the Politicians Act,” strips away state voter ID laws across the country. That’s why I introduced an amendment to protect voter ID laws.
Dems shot it down. Shows how much common sense Dems have these days.

Calling HR. 1 the “For The People Act” is laughable.
HR. 1 would strip normal Americans of their most basic civic duty, and empower Democrat elites to conduct mass manipulation of elections.

Nancy Pelosi is forcing a vote on HR 1—which is designed to weaken election security against voter fraud.
It was bad when Democrats introduced it 2 years ago. It’s worse now.
I’m about to reveal the truth behind their election bill. Watch live here: https://t.co/5zXyrK785h

Five Months Since the Election, Georgia Still Lacks Legally Required Chain of Custody Documentation on 355,000 Votes (Most All Likely for Joe Biden)
Georgia still has over 350,000 votes (most likely nearly all for Joe Biden) that are invalid and yet were counted in the 2020 election. These illegal ballots helped Joe Biden win Georgia by 11,000 votes.
We first reported on December 26, 2020, that Georgia had 460,000 ballots that were missing legally required chain of custody documentation from the 2020 Election. Despite these legally required documents not being present, the Secretary of State Raffensperger and Governor Kemp (both Republicans) certified the election win for Joe Biden by 11,000 votes.
Now today, five months since the 2020 Election, these legally required documents are still nowhere to be found.
Five months after the November 3, 2020 presidential election, officials at the state and county level in Georgia have failed to produce chain of custody records for more than 355,000 absentee vote by mail ballots deposited in drop boxes located around the state for that election.
Joe Biden was certified as the victor of Georgia and its 16 Electoral College votes by a margin of 11,599 votes, or less than 0.25 percent of the 5 million votes cast in the November 3, 2020 presidential election in Georgia. According to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, 1.3 million of those votes were cast as absentee vote by mail ballots. Based on polling conducted by John McLaughlin & Associates, 700,000 of those absentee vote by mail ballots were sent via regular mail and 600,000 were deposited in the estimated 300 drop boxes located around the state and were manually picked up and transported by election workers to the local county registrar for subsequent counting.
According to Georgia Election Code Emergency Rule 183-1-14-0.8-.14, promulgated by the Georgia State Election Board in July 2020, but not codified by the state legislature at the time as the Georgia Constitution requires, each of Georgia’s 159 counties is responsible for documenting the transfer of every batch of absentee ballots picked up at drop boxes and delivered to the county election offices with ballot transfer forms. The forms are required to be signed and dated, with time of pick up by the collection team upon pick up, and then signed, dated, with time of delivery by the registrar or designee upon receipt and accepted.
How could the results in Georgia and likely other states in the 2020 election include 355,000 invalid votes – most likely all for Joe Biden? What happened to our laws and law enforcement?
BREAKING UPDATE: New Hampshire Senate Joins House – Passes SB43 to Mandate an Audit of Windham’s Fradulent 2020 Election Results – Off to Governor to Sign!
UPDATE— This is breaking news — via Ken Eyring at Granite Grok.
In a HUGE WIN for We, the People, and for New Hampshire election integrity, the NH Senate voted 24-0 just minutes ago to concur with the House amended version of SB43. This Bill was championed by Senator Bob Giuda and will validate election integrity in our state by mandating a forensic audit on Windham’s 11/3/20 general election ballots and voting machines as configured on November 3, 2020.
The forensic audit will determine the huge discrepancy between the election day results and subsequent recount of Windham’s November 3, 2020 State Rep. race where a difference of 1,363 total votes from just 10,006 ballots was uncovered.
New Hampshire lawmakers were scheduled to vote on the Windham Amendment SB43 this week.
And now it has passed the New Hampshire House and Senate.
Via Granite Grok:
Why is SB43 Important?
Senate Bill SB43 mandates an audit of Windham’s disturbing November 3, 2020 general election results that produced a massive discrepancy between the machine vote tally for the State Rep race on election day and a hand recount 9 days later. The recount showed a difference of 1,363 votes for the State Rep race being shifted with only 10,006 ballots were cast. That is a big discrepancy – and we need to know why!
Senator Bob Giuda spearheaded a herculean effort to push SB43 through the Senate with a 24-0 vote in February because the AG’s office refused to perform an investigation into the disturbing results. The Bill was subsequently strengthened via a house amendment and passed by the House Election Law Committee 20-0. It will now be voted on by the full house tomorrow or Thursday.
The passage of SB43 into law is critical to ensure election integrity is verified not only in Windham, but across NH – because the same machines are used to count 85% of all votes in NH.
On Thursday morning we received word from GOP official Dave Strang that the bill passed through the New Hampshire House.
Just a quick FYI email. SB43, the NH bill that will compel the AG and Sec. of State to investigate the Windham voting anomaly, passed the House of Reps today by virtue of being on the consent calendar.” This is where bills that are expected to pass without opposition go. Because this bill was modified by the House Election Law Committee. (where stronger language was inserted), it must be revoted on in the NH Senate. That could happen as early as tomorrow. I expect it will pass the Senate without opposition (no one in the NH Legislature has voted against this bill yet) and conceivably it could be on the Governor’s desk as early as tomorrow evening. Feel free to do a follow up to your article on the website today with this info included.
More from Dave — Once signed, the clock starts ticking. It requires the forensic audit of the machines and ballots
within 45 days of passage of the bill (signature by the Governor).
