Demings Should Cosponsor Rubio’s Bill to Protect Election Integrity
As Val Demings said recently, “American elections should be decided by Americans.”
Demings has radical views about elections, but given this acknowledgement, Demings should cosponsor Marco Rubio’s Protecting Our Democracy by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting Act. The bill, which was introduced following New York City’s move to allow foreign citizens to vote in local elections, would prohibit federal funds from going to states and localities that permit foreigners to vote.
Earlier this year, Demings voted for H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which would overturn voter ID laws, publicly fund campaigns, permit same day voter registration and expand voting by mail. The law would radically diminish the integrity of our elections.
“Will Val Demings concede that Blue New York’s move to allow foreign citizens to participate in their elections goes too far? Floridians believe firmly in the integrity of our elections, and Demings should support this effort to ensure basic protections are put in place,” said Elizabeth Gregory, communications director for Marco Rubio for Senate.
