Indiana AG promises to challenge Dems’ ‘wholly unnecessary’ election reforms if passed

In testimony before the Senate Rules Committee on Wednesday, Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita (R) slammed new election reform proposals being put forth by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her Democratic counterparts in the Senate, promising that his state would sue if Dems manage to get a signature from the president on two companion bills known as H.R. 1 in the House and S. 1 in the Senate, according to the Washington Examiner.

“The 2020 elections involved an effort to convert what had been election day in our country to a months-long process of vote-gathering, ballot-harvesting, last-minute rule and law changes by people not authorized to do so,” Rokita said Wednesday, as the Examiner reported.

“All this resulted in shaken confidence in our electoral system and a profound unease if not outright distrust about the results,” the Indiana AG added, warning Democrats about doing the same with their new federal-level proposals.

“Wholly unnecessary”

Speaking Wednesday, Rokita said in particular that the privisions within S. 1, also known as the “For the People Act,” “are wholly unnecessary,” arguing that “the determinations for how elections are operated should remain with the states, as intended by the framers, for good reason.”

Rokita also asserted that the new law would compound the number of election-related lawsuits that Americans have to contend with following nationwide match-ups.

“Many of the problems of 2020 resulted from the efforts of those without the authority to do so trying to control how the election was run and changing election rules at the last minute,” he charged, according to the Washington Examiner. “This led to an unprecedented number of election lawsuits that have, frankly have overwhelmed the system.”

The attorney general also said the changes would “open our elections up to increased voter fraud and irregularities,” including by eliminating voter and photo ID laws. “Requiring government-issued photo ID at the polls represents a common-sense, simple best practice for election administration and is in place in over 32 states,” Rokita said, as the Examiner reported.

Voting changes in Georgia

Rokita’s testimony comes just days after the state of Georgia enacted sweeping election reforms designed to streamline voting and prevent allegations of improprieties in the wake of the hotly contested 2020 presidential race.

According to NPR, the 96-page bill, signed by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) on Thursday, imposes “new limitations on mail-in voting” but “expands most voters’ access to in-person early voting.”

It also mandates that large precincts add more voting machines and staff or “split up the poll,” as NPR reported, and imposes new regulations on absentee ballots, including photo identification rules that, notably, would be undone by the U.S. Senate’s S. 1, if passed.

Democrats, of course, are crying foul on the Georgia measure, which President Joe Biden has likened to “Jim Crow in the 21st Century,” according to the Associated Press.

But after the debacle that transpired in the weeks following November’s election, Republicans had to do something. One can only hope Democrats in Congress don’t start undoing all the progress that’s just been made.

  1. Thank God that someone is starting to stand up to the most corrupt administration that this country has ever seen!

    1. Agree,Pelosi should have been gone long before now all she wants is power.Pelosi cares nothing about the people just money and power.

  2. Yes, the new administration is actually the old Obama/Biden administration and just as corrupt. President Joe is a Manchurian president put in place by his undercover handlers. Joe has been a politician most of his adult life and is the poster child for term limits on all politicians. The framers of our constitution never intended that congress be a lifetime job. We are headed into a very bad place created by Joe and his Chinese degenerates.

    1. If Republicans don’t stand up and be heard and start exposing the corruption there will soon be no Republican Party and that’s what the democrates want. They don’t care about us, just power and control and major corruption!!

  4. All politicians should be on term limits. Pelosi thinks she owns the American people. Biden is senile so all these reactions are not his. I’ve worked with senility and dementia. Who is making all the decisions and uproar?? Obama and cronies??? This needs to be addressed. This country is in trouble.

  5. pelosi is a power mad idot that the democratic party allows to completely rule.There are not enough elected reps in thehouse with the courage to stand up for those who elected them but instead allow this power mad San Francisco freak to tolally destroy our country. Now believes she can even unseat a dully elected and state certified Rep . to be removed so a crying democrat can take her seat. ILLEGAL

    1. With sincerest apologies to author Henry Rider Haggard, “SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED” has been on a warpath since Donald J. Trump’s famous walk down the elevator to declare his presidential bid. “SHE” did — and is still doing — all she possibly can to make sure DJT can never come up for air after being dumped into the surging barrage of ambush from corrupt media, power-hungry tech giants, consummately greedy political creatures and dwellers of the Washington swamp. “SHE” knows DJT will bring the evil theatrics out into the open and expose what these creatures have been accusing DJT of doing. “SHE” is part of the herd that is pulling the strings, dictating the scripts, and choreographing the new administration. ‘SHE” had good training from the masters and she believes she can continue being the power behind the throne. Corruption in the family is an acquired taste; greed is, however, one of the diseases that do not skip a generation. SHE wants center stage. Note that the script started as a pandemic that brought in the “need” to comply with mail in voting, then panDominion dominated the voting scenario – creating the panoramic confusion when eager folks were glued to their TV sets watching the magical scramble of counts – then the sinister blackouts that followed, and when the counts emerged, the world was held in extreme disbelief –WE WERE DOMINIONATED!!!! The script was followed to the letter. Greed for power fuels everything evil. We all know the rest.

      1. I do NOT understand why SHE CAN NOT BE IMPEACHED OR FIRED. SHE HAS DONE EVERYTHING ILLEGAL TO KEEP TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE.
        FOR GOD’S SAKE DO THE REPUBLICANS HAVE ANY BACKBONE TO PUT A STOP TO ALL THIS CRAP? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
        GROW SOME BALLS
