Failed presidential hopeful Cory “Spartacus” Booker will introduce a bill to create a new federal organization, a “DemocracyCorps” of youth who would help people register to vote, serve as poll workers, and assist with voter education campaigns.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Booker wrote in a statement, the right to vote is “in peril, and unless decisive measures are taken to provide safe voting options, many Americans may face a terrible choice this fall between protecting their health and participating in our democracy.
“My bill would help solve this problem. DemocracyCorps aims to cultivate and inspire a new generation of young people to strengthen our democracy by helping Americans safely exercise the franchise, just as the Freedom Summer volunteers before them.”
The false premise of Booker’s plan is that the right is attempting to suppress voting and democracy. And yet his bill would also push for voting-by-mail because Democrats are eager to flood elections with voter fraud.
