The Biden administration is ramping up opposition to the GOP’s election integrity laws, which have been passed by several Republican states.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently labeled the GOP’s efforts to uphold election integrity as voter suppression. During a press briefing Monday, she decried the laws meant to prevent election fraud as authoritarian and anti-American
“We need to work together with civil rights organizations to build as broad a turnout and voter education system to overcome the worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War,” she stated.
This comes as Texas, Florida and a few other states are moving to mandate voter IDs, restrict vote-by-mail and outlaw ballot harvesting. Psaki argued these measures, which are intended to protect the integrity of American elections, are forms of voter suppression.
