(FixThisNation.com) – Republican senators led by Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., have pushed for answers from the Biden administration regarding its “voter mobilization” attempts, arguing that for more than six months they have not received any updates on this.
In the letter which is co-signed by 23 senators, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the GOP congress members criticized President Biden over his administration’s “failure to respond” to any of the questions they had regarding Executive Order 14019 which dealt with promotion of voting access. As they pointed out this policy requires the oversight of Congress both as an oversight matter, as well as “under the Antideficiency Act.” They then proceeded to point out that they had requested information on the plans for implementing this executive order, and had called for requests of their plans and copies of the documents that had already been submitted to the White House.
The letter further points out that the Order includes numerous activities that the agencies are going to be engaging in, including the partnership with third-party organizations to get more voters registered, and pushing for mail-in voting. They proceed to point out that federal agencies should be focused on achieving this mission in a nonpartisan manner, rather than pushing for voter mobilization efforts in a way that could potentially have “partisan impacts.”
As they point out this means that it is not the federal government’s job to “drive voter turnout” which is why it is necessary for the agency to determine if they have been improperly using federal resources.
