We’ve covered efforts to ensure that American elections are secure and that it’s easy to vote and hard to cheat, but Congressional Democrats are continuing their efforts to remove security provisions from election law and to give federal bureaucrats control of election administration. And while H.R. 1/S. 1, legislation to override essentially all state-level election administration regulations, has stalled in the Senate, House Democrats just passed their Plan B: H.R. 4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, named for the late Democratic congressman and civil rights movement figure.
Joining me to discuss the problems with the legislation and efforts to maintain election integrity provisions is Ken Blackwell, chairman of Council for National Policy Action and the Center for Election Integrity of the America First Policy Institute, who formerly served as secretary of state of Ohio from 1999 until 2007.
