Stealing Elections, the Old-Fashioned Way

 From The Federalist:

Instead, the bill cynically adopts into federal law every losing argument advanced by the vast leftwing elections industry to courts across the country for years. Every theory rejected by the courts has been enshrined in HR 4. The bill also hands control of our elections over to the radical leftwing attorneys in the Voting Section of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Most importantly, the bill codifies congressional districts as “protected” under federal law even if those districts do not have a majority of minority residents. Courts have recognized the importance of majority-minority congressional districts, but have rejected partisan efforts by Democrat lawyers to extend that recognition to congressional districts that do not have a majority of minorities in the district. HR 4 would put into the federal statute protection for districts with more white voters than minorities, thus expanding legal protections to—you guessed it—Democrat House seats.

Such a brazen power grab to ensure Democrats’ permanent control of a majority of House seats forever should be the subject of extensive focus, news coverage, and criticism—which might yet happen if some reporter were to actually read the bill rather than regurgitating spurious Democrat talking points anguishing over the state of voting in 1965, none of which apply today.

House Democrats’ frantic push to perpetuate their power was actually acknowledged by at least one of their media cheerleaders. Three days after the new HR 4 was finally introduced, Hayes Brown wrote at MSNBC and Real Clear Politics that it might yet be “too late” for the Dems to seize control of the law to protect their House majority.

Freedom of speech and the sanctity of the vote is something we fondly look back on.
