Appearing with Jake Tapper on CNN, progressive Democrat AOC claimed “Republicans are already laying the groundwork in installing state-level attorney generals and beyond to overturn the results of any state election that they frankly do not like in states where they have taken power.”
“And so, even if you are successful in out organizing, they’re laying the groundwork to not even certify the results of the election,” she added. “They are holding essentially dress rehearsals in states like Arizona in order to do that. And I think we should be extremely alarmed, and it will… we are setting it up to happen unless we pass very strong voter provisions against gerrymandering, voter protection rights not just in H.R. 4, but we need the retroactive provisions of H.R. 1.”
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it’s naive for the Biden administration to think voter suppression can be out-organized: “It already took unprecedented, historic, organizing to overcome the voter suppression efforts in 2020 and we barely squeaked through.” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/a3OYNFtzV2
