Heritage Foundation scholar breaks down 'absurd' federalization of elections in Democrats' bill

Von Spakovsky, who served under President George W. Bush and is now a fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Election Law Reform Initiative, told host Mark Levin that Sewell’s bill, heavily supported by Biden and fellow Democrats, will effectively erase any independent state government’s control of their own election procedures.

“These laws do everything from gutting voter I.D. laws in all the states, to putting severe restrictions on states [from] being able to verify the eligibility and qualifications of voters, and [restrictions against] cleaning up and maintain[ing] the accuracy of their voter lists,” he said.
