With the midterm elections looming just over the horizon, there is a new liberal hysteria erupting regarding electoral security in response to the event of January 6th, 2021.
This is peculiar, of course, because the left side of the aisle has long considered electoral security to be a bit of a second thought. They rail against it at times, bristling at the mere suggestion that voter fraud continues to occur here in the United States.
But now that it’s about J6, they seem rather interested, don’t they?
Now, a new bill that would seek to prevent purported “loopholes” on our election laws from being exploited is making its way through Congress, and Mitch McConnell just gave it a bit of a tailwind.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday he would support legislation that would make it harder to overturn a certified presidential election, an endorsement that will bolster its chances for passage in his chamber and puts him at sharp odds with former President Donald Trump, who has called on GOP senators to sink the plan.Trending:
McConnell said the “chaos” of the pro-Trump attack on the Capitol last year “certainly underscored the need for an update.”
McConnell delivered a hearty endorsement.
“I strongly support the modest changes that our colleagues in the working group have fleshed out after literally months of detailed discussions,” McConnell said. “I’ll proudly support the legislation, provided that nothing more than technical changes are made to its current form.”
McConnell has been finding himself distanced from the MAGA crowd in recent weeks, after having taken a number of stances that lie perpendicular to those of former President Donald Trump.
