In an interview on Wednesday’s PBS NewsHour, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats will have a better chance of keeping their hold on the House in 2022 if they pass H.R. and S. 1 “in order to remove obstacles to participation for people to vote.”
“Well, the elections are about campaigns, and we are ready,” Pelosi stated. “We are ready with our mobilization to own the ground to get out the vote with our message of unity for the people — again, so proud of what the Biden-Harris administration is putting forth — and then, of course, with the resources, the money that is needed to do this. But we would be better if we can [pass] H.R. and S. 1 in order to remove obstacles to participation for people to vote.”
Pelosi is lying about the election integrity laws which are being passed in several states. They are not “obstacles to participation for people to vote.” They actually expand voting. What they are obstacles to is voter fraud, which Democrats know they need in order to win elections.
And Pelosi essentially just admitted it: that the laws are obstacles to Democrats maintaining power.
