(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) The Biden White House has attempted to hide its partisan efforts to get-out-the-vote by executive order in advance of the 2022 midterms, according to a report in The Federalist.
President Joe Biden’s March 2021 Executive Order 14019 was really the work of the “far-left activist group Demos,” which produced a report in December 2020 that contains language disturbingly similar to the president’s order.
The order required federal agencies to come up with ways to “expand access to, and education about, voter registration and election information, and to combat misinformation, in order to enable all eligible Americans to participate in our democracy.”
The Federalist also pointed out that two of Demos’ former top executives, K. Sabeel Rahman and Chiraag Bains, now serve Biden’s administration as senior counselor for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Racial Justice & Equity, respectively.
Several Republicans in the House of Representatives have sent a letter to the president raising concerns about the Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting, according to a press release from the Foundation for Government Accountability.
“This letter publicly calls out what is frighteningly obvious—that under the guise of ‘access’ the Biden administration has attempted to federalize elections,” said Tarren Bragdon, president and CEO of the FGA.
“President Biden’s executive order is politically motivated at its core and is a clear effort to push back against legislative actions in states like Florida, Georgia, and Texas that secure elections and protect voters’ voices,” Bragdon continued.
The letter, which was penned by Republican Congressman Rodney Davis, R-Ill., followed recent hints from House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., suggesting that President Joe Biden would take further executive action to help Democrats prevail in advance of the 2022 midterms.
