Report claims Democrats are preparing for a federal election takeover

A new report claims Democrats are preparing a federal takeover of future elections.

The analysis follows an executive order signed by President Joe Biden in May 2021 that directs federal agencies to submit a strategic plan regarding ways to promote voter registration and turnout.

“Employees throughout the federal government who are carrying out President Joe Biden’s executive order directing them to get involved in state elections are likely all violating the Anti-Deficiency Act, besides interfering in the election process and using federal resources in what seems to be a get-out-the-vote operation for the party in power in the White House,” said senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation and former commissioner on the Federal Election Commission Hans von Spakovsky.

“The Anti-Deficiency Act prohibits the use of federal funds beyond what has been approved by Congress. Federal employees who violate the Anti-Deficiency Act are subject to imprisonment, fines and suspension without pay,” the report added.

The report has some Republicans ready to fight back, though it is uncertain how to stop the concerns related to the order.

The consequences of the new action will be known shortly, as the midterm elections are less than 100 days away with many close races under watch.
