Free and fair elections are the bedrock of a democracy. And our elections are under attacks from foreign interference, obstruction of justice, and hyper-partisan politics.
The 2016 election was attacked by a foreign power, Trump welcomed those attacks, and he obstructed justice to impede the investigation of said attacks. The Democratic-led House has passed legislation to protect our elections but Senate Majority Leader McConnell refuses to take it up.
Our elections are being attacked by hyper-partisan politics. Leader McConnell denied Merrick Garland a seat on the Supreme Court. Trump and McConnell then installed Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh instead. The Supreme Court is now a partisan entity where 15 out of the last 19 justices have been appointed by Republicans while winging the popular vote only once. Yesterday the Court ruled that partisan gerrymandered districts can stand. The voice of the people is being sacrificed for partisan power.
To save our democracy, we must save our elections. Call your MoCs and demand legislation to protect our elections and an immediate impeachment inquiry to investigate the 2016 elections and Trump’s obstruction. Then join us in working to elect a new Congress in the 2020 elections.
