Yesterday a total of THREE election security bills introduced by Democrats were blocked by our own Marsha Blackburn, including one that would require campaigns to report foreign interference in our elections to the FBI.
It’s not the first time she has done this. Apparently Marsha is the Republican go-to when it comes to blocking bills to enable more foreign interference in our elections, which should not be a partisan issue.
From THE HILL:
Election security has become a point of contention during the Trump era. House Democrats have passed several election-related bills, including a sweeping ethics and election reform measure, but they’ve hit a wall in the GOP-controlled Senate.
Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, tried to pass legislation that would require campaign officials to report contacts with foreign nationals who are trying to make donations or coordinate with the campaign to the Federal Election Commission, which would notify the FBI.
“The alarm bells are going off and what are we doing? We’re running out of time to do something about it,” Warner said from the Senate floor.
Obviously Democrats are in the middle of an impeachment inquiry focused on Trump asking Ukraine to investigate former Biden and his son and holding up aid to pressure them, which Trump’s own people have admitted he did.
Intelligence agencies have also said the Russians are still doing it, and will do it again.
Marsha clearly doesn’t care as long as it helps her team, no matter what it does to the very fabric of our Democracy.
It’s worth remembering that we just recently learned that the NRA was a key point of focus for the Russians, and that multiple people associated with the NRA were actually Russian agents using the group to gain access to conservative power players… and that the point of entry for them was actually right here in Tennessee, through associates of Blackburn.
When we say “Moscow Marsha”, we’re not just being cute.
Marsha’s quote about blocking efforts to protect our elections is especially delicious.
“You know, it’s not a good sign if you’re doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
As a reminder, the house voted over 50 times to repeal Obamacare while Marsha was there.
If you think Marsha is damaging our country with her behavior, HOLLER at her HERE.
