Today, members of the House Republican Caucus rolled out their Commitment to America, a series of significant reforms that will serve as the Republicans' first priorities once they regain the majority in January 2023.
Alongside other broad-ranging topics, Leader Kevin McCarthy re-emphasized the Republican Caucus’ promise to “end special treatment for members of Congress by repealing proxy voting, and increase accountability in the election process through voter ID, accurate voter rolls, and observer access.”Read more
While Democrats do just about all they can to undermine election integrity and weaken important election procedures by filing innumerable frivolous lawsuits, Republicans are fighting back to uphold the rule of law and promote transparency in elections.
On Tuesday, September 20, the Republican National Committee announced that it filed a lawsuit in Clark County, Nevada to compel election officials to respond to public records requests seeking public information regarding the partisan breakdown and political affiliation of poll workers.Read more
On Friday, Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares announced the creation of the "Election Integrity Unit":
This unit will provide legal advice to the Department of Elections, investigate and prosecute violations of Virginia election law, work with the election community throughout the year to ensure uniformity and legality in application of election laws, and work with law enforcement to ensure legality and purity in elections.Read more
As RNLA highlighted when she was first named White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre has a history as an election results denier. This inconvenient reality caught up with the Biden Administration today when Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy confronted Jean-Pierre about her past public statements denying election results.
DOOCY: "You tweeted in 2016 that Trump stole an election."— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) September 6, 2022
KJP: "I knew this was coming."
DOOCY: "If denying election results is extreme now, why wasn't it then?"
KJP: "That comparison that you made is just ridiculous." pic.twitter.com/EJyoykV1Ta
To promote poll worker recruitment for the 2022 midterm elections, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission declared today "Help America Vote Day":
Help America Vote Day aims to address the nationwide shortage of poll workers resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, inspire greater civic engagement and volunteerism, and help ensure safe, secure, accessible, and transparent elections in 2022 and beyond.Read more
As we head into the 2022 midterms, concerns about election integrity remain at an all-time high for voters. And after a Yuma County, Arizona woman recently pled guilty to organizing a ballot trafficking operation in 2020, it's no surprise that concerns about ballot trafficking rank highest. An op-ed by the Honest Elections Project's Jason Snead explains:
One common tactic for committing fraud is known as ballot trafficking or harvesting. Organizers and activists go door-to-door to “help” voters cast their ballots and then collect them, all without any official supervision. Proponents defend the practice as aiding vulnerable voters. In practice, though, vote trafficking often turns these voters into victims.Read more
Friday marked Jen Psaki's last day as White House Press Secretary, and the Biden Administration has made an interesting choice as her replacement considering many believe a "red wave" is coming during November's midterms—election results denier Karine Jean-Pierre. Jean-Pierre's Twitter history illustrates how she has publicly cast doubt on the victories of former President Donald Trump in 2016 and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp in 2018.

Polling done by the Honest Elections Project provided to Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard proves that support for requiring photo ID to vote remains strong across demographics, even increasing over the last year:
“Photo ID laws are a case in point: Support for photo ID laws is seven points higher than a year ago. Left-wing special interests and politicians like President Biden carried out an intense, often misleading, campaign meant to stir opposition to policies like strong voter ID. Their efforts have had the opposite effect. More people than ever — including most black and Hispanic voters — back photo ID laws,” said the polling analysis provided to Secrets.Read more
Democrats have spent the last two years criticizing even the slightest concerns expressed by conservatives about the integrity of U.S. elections. Then why did the Biden Administration nominate Dara Lindenbaum to fill a seat on the Federal Election Commission (FEC)? As the Washington Examiner reports, Lindenbaum signed on to allegations that lacked credibility about the outcome of the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election:
In a lawsuit she filed in November 2018 on behalf of Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams's nonprofit group, she signed her name to several bad-faith allegations, many of which had already been debunked at that time. But one of these allegations truly stands out for its brazen fearmongering and lack of credible evidence: the charge that faulty or rigged voting machines were actually switching voters' choices when they went to vote in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election.Read more
