GOP Senators Stalling On The Secure Elections Act


Yahoo News today reported that at the request of the White House(read Trump), GOP members of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee that overseas federal elections today stalled a bill–Secure Elections Act–that enjoys bipartisan support and would have significantly shored up election system defenses against the threat of Russian hacking in the  midterms and beyond. Listed below are the shameful GOP Senators in the Rules Committee who don’t want to secure our voting machines. Notice the list includes two of the most despised U.S. Senators–Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell–truly deplorable!!

There is no valid explanation as to why any member of Congress would be opposed to a bill that seeks to protect our election systems from the threat of Russian hacking. It is very clear as Yours Truly has repeatedly stated that the GOP is banking on Russian hacking in the 2018 midterms.


The reason given by Trump’s White House, that this bill is redundant because DHS is already capable of performing what the bill proposes is also unavailing. Just the other day MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had a segment where a cyber security expert blamed DHS for leaving local county election officials to defend themselves against Russian hacking. If DHS is already capable of defending our election systems why are they letting the counties do it on their own?

Bottom line Dems and the mainstream media need to keep their eyes on Trump’s GOP as regards Russian interference. Folks if they know we are watching their every move, maybe just maybe they may get deterred. Under no circumstances however should Dems trust assurances from Kirstjen Nielsen’s DHS or the Trump White House regarding their efforts to secure our vote.

For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
