Former First Lady Michelle Obama and failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams have teamed up to push for the federal takeover of elections and elevation of voter ID laws.
This bombshell report from Breitbart News features a video from Abrams’ Fair Fight Action and Obama’s When We All Vote which are the organizations attempting to move the power for elections from local to federal.
The video, which came out Thursday and features Abrams and Obama arguing for the federal takeover saying, “We’re working to change the future of this nation.”
“Our democracy and our vote — the very foundation of this nation and the most powerful tools we have as citizens are under attack,” Abrams said in the video, which runs nearly two minutes.
“Right now, dangerous legislation is being proposed across the country that limits the freedom to vote, cast our ballots, and have our votes counted,” Obama said.
“Many of these proposals would disproportionately impact black, brown, young, and working-class voters, and voters with disabilities,” Abrams added.
Obama seemed to want to rile up her base by saying that those who are pushing certain voting measures, seeming to indicate election security laws, are “counting on” those who oppose it to “be quiet” but according to Obama they cannot.
The pair also shared some emotionally stimulating comments about this fight being about who was in their community not who was in the White House or Congress.
In the end, Abrams said the game plan includes “Calling on members of Congress every day,” “Checking our voter registration status,” and “Ensuring others in our community are registered.”
“We’re working to change the future of this nation,” Obama said. “It’s not gonna be easy, but nothing this important ever is.”
