Dems Push Same, Tired Talking Points on Elections During Senate Hearing

Earlier today, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution held a hearing on the Voting Rights Act. Unsurprisingly, the Democrats pushed the same, tired talking points about voter discrimination that they always do.

First, the Democrat members of the committee and their witnesses claimed that increasingly-popular state voter ID requirements were racist. The Heritage Foundation's Hans von Spakovsky debunked this myth.

The Democrats also made it seem like the proposed practice-based clearance provision in H.R. 4 would somehow make things more "equal" among the states. The reality is that it would make things equally-bad everywhere, especially considering that the partisan Voting Rights Section of the DOJ would have authority over the states' voting laws.

Unsurprisingly, Senator Whitehouse was there to discuss his usual, tinfoil hat "dark money" conspiracies.

While today's hearing was on H.R. 4, expect more on the Freedom to Vote Act (a.k.a. the "Freedom to Cheat Act") in the coming days.
