Democrats and Impeachment Republicans Pass Liz Cheney Bill That Enchances Dem Election Cheating

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a bill to alter the 1887 Electoral Count Act. The so called “Presidential Election Reform Act” revises rules pertaining to the congressional certification of presidential elections, which some contend will benefit Democrats.

The bill was sponsored by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who lost her primary race in August and leaves office on January 3, along with Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren, both of whom are on the January 6 Committee.

The bill, as characterized by Cheney:

  • enacts new counting rules;
  • requires that Congress receive a single certificate from each state;
  • requires states to select electors under state laws prior to Election Day;
  • permits elections to be extended in the event of so-called “catastrophic events”; and
  • prevents election officials from refusing to certify presidential elections.

Cheney suggested this bill “will preserve the rule of law and defend election integrity.”
