Former Dem Rep Slips Up: Election Integrity 'Could Really Cost Democrats Seats'
If ballot harvesting is banned, the Democrats don't stand a chance.
Former Democrat Representative Donna Edwards accidentally admitted that if election integrity legislation is passed in the states, Democrats cannot win.
Edwards discussed voter integrity legislation on the MSNBC panel on Thursday.
But Edwards had a slip-up.
The ex-congresswoman said if voter ID is implemented and illegal ballot harvesting is banned, the Democrats don't stand a chance.
Edwards was asked:
"Well, and Donna Edwards, this political stalemate on voting rights legislation is because Congressional Republicans blocked it, and the reality is reforming the filibuster doesn’t seem like an actual possibility with the votes in the Senate."
"What can the president actually do here?"
"Well, you know, for Democrats, I mean, it is both a moral crisis of, you know, black voters, minority voters being really shut out of the process, but it also means that it’s a political crisis for Democrats."
"These rules and restrictive rules that have put in place in the state are such that it could really cost Democrats seats in the House and the Senate, and that is how serious it is, and so I think that there’s going to have to be a level of urgency raised by the White House, by the president, by the vice president around the country both inside and outside strategy that is going to lift up the need to do voting rights, not in a year or down the line, but right now and I don’t know that I’ve seen that urgency yet."
Earlier this year, a new poll has revealed almost 70 percent of black American voters support election integrity laws that make it a legal requirement to produce photo identification before being allowed to vote.
Yet Democrats and their allies in the leftist media have been pushing the narrative that voter ID laws are somehow "racist."
Last month, Neon Nettle reported that Republicans appear to be well on their way to taking the House back from the Democrats. At the same time, Joe Biden's popularity continues to plummet among voters.
The House GOP has been vastly outraising Democrats as Republicans set their sights on winning the majority.
According to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), it outraised the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) by $4 million in May.
The NRCC now also has a $6.1 million cash advantage.
