Tomorrow Senate Democrats will fail in their efforts to pass a slightly modified version of S.1 a.k.a. the "Corrupt Politicians Act." They will say it is because of a filibuster but the reality is they do not even have the support of Democrat Senator Joe Manchin. But the fight for fair and honest elections is far from over. Democrats will then pivot to H.R. 4, the "John Lewis Voting Rights Act." The Democrats will lead you to believe that H.R.4 is a compromise that everyone can get behind, but as RNLA Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon points out, H.R.4 is a "trojan horse" to achieve their partisan power grab of U.S. elections. Dhillon writes:
All Americans – particularly Republicans in Congress – need to recognize H.R. 4 for the unnecessary power grab it truly is, and not be fooled by false propaganda about "voting rights. . ."Read more
Speaking before the Committee on House Administration Subcommittee on Elections today, RNLA Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon said it best:
"The unspoken truth is that all voters, including Democrats, know that Voter ID and voter list maintenance are important tools to maintain voter confidence in election administration and the results they produce. Democrat politicians and radical activists undermine that valuable confidence when they fail to support these commonsense and widely-supported tools."
Throughout the hearing, Democrat members of the Subcommittee and their witnesses attacked and undermined widely-supported election integrity laws like requiring voter ID and voter list maintenance—two procedures that dramatically increase voter confidence in elections.

On Monday, RNLA’s Co-Chair Harmeet Dhillon published an op-ed in USA TODAY about the risks that widespread vote-by-mail poses in the upcoming election. Currently, she is representing Republicans in California suing to prevent absentee ballots from being sent to inactive voters. Absentee voting plays an important role in the electoral process for those who are unable to vote in person. However, Democrats are pushing for universal vote-by-mail despite the warnings of election experts on both sides of the aisle.Read more
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and state and local governments take different approaches in responding it, an increasing number of cases have been filed against alleged government overreach. At first they were largely First Amendment cases, as we have previously covered (5/5, 4/22, 4/16, 4/13, 4/9, and 3/27), but now litigation is pending on nearly every government action in response to the pandemic, including challenges to governors' entire executive orders.
Last week, the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down Governor Tony Evers' "safer-at-home" order. RNLA member Jake Curtis analyzed the decision, which was made on state separation of powers grounds:Read more
