Senate Majority Leader Schumer (D-NY) is using an arcane Senate procedure to bring S. 1 to the Senate floor the week of June 21 but has reintroduced it as S. 2093. It simply carries forward all the horribles of S.1, but just under another number. S. 2093, like its siblings S.1 and H.R. 1. It is an unabashed and insidious effort to gain one-party – Democrat – national control of all elections and squash the Constitutional primacy of the states for the conduct of elections, under the false guise of election reform, but in fact, intending to do the opposite and enabling election fraud. Among other egregious provisions, S. 2093:
- Negates state voter ID requirements.
- Virtually eliminates any restrictions on vote-by-mail.
- Requires states to offer online registration.
- Requires states to allow same day registration and voting.
- Requires “automatic’ voter registration by the state of those who would otherwise be eligible to register to vote.
- Effectively permits “voter harvesting (trafficking)” – picking up and delivering bundles of votes by making it a crime to interfere with those “assisting others to vote.”
Moreover, it enables partisan control of the Federal Elections Commission by reducing the Commission from 6 to 5 members, thereby effectively facilitating one party oversight of federal elections and campaign finance laws.
Further, to add insult to injury, it provides that for every dollar contributed to a federal candidate, five more dollars from the US Treasury would go that candidate – forcing Americans tax dollars to support all candidates for re-election, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should she run again or the infamous members of “The Squad, like AOC.
Finally, S.2093, like H.R. 1 and S. 1 assaults our First Amendment right to freedom of political speech. In its effort to go after donors to conservative organizations, it would subject citizens who contribute to nonprofit organizations to political harassment and intimidation by making their personal information available in a searchable government database. It would also force groups to publicly identify their supporters on the face of the ads themselves. It is in no way a “voting rights” bill and should be defeated.
