Appearing on Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, Rep. Mo Brooks argued “H.R. 1 is the worst piece of legislation relating to elections in the history of the United States.”
“H.R. 1 is the worst piece of legislation relating to elections in the history of the United States of America. It does more to undermine our republic than any legislation I have ever seen or heard of, even looking back in the history books. By way of example, it registers 16- and 17-year-olds. It registers people automatically from multiple different sources like drivers licenses, social security cards, [or] any number of government sources,” Brooks said.
“If you move from one address to another, you’re going to get registered twice,” he continued. “Someone like myself, if it’s Morris Jackson Brooks Jr. at one place, but Morris Jay Brooks Jr. at another, you get registered twice.
Brooks also warned of “massive voter fraud” if enacted.
“It’s going to be massive voter fraud,” Marlow claimed. “In short, the Democrats have ignored and undermined the Commission on Federal Election Reform report in 2005 — a bipartisan commission report by Jimmy Carter on the one hand and James Baker on the other hand — and have expanded the very worst of the things that the report said we needed to avoid.”
“If you’re talking about non-citizens voting in American elections. H.R. 1 is going to make it much easier, because it makes it a criminal offense for a poll worker to deny a non-citizen voting at the polls. That’s craziness, but that’s what they do with this legislation by tying the hands of our poll workers, who will be fearful of being prosecuted if they challenge a non-citizen who is trying to vote in an American election.” he added.
