House Democrats are taking aim at efforts to craft new voting laws in Republican-led states. North Carolina Democrat G.K. Butterfield opened a hearing and said there’s no proof the laws are necessary.
He accused Republicans of aiming to make voting inconvenient and said the new laws “disproportionately burden minority voters.” Wisconsin Republican Bryan] brushed off Democratic concerns and said the new laws will help ensure voter confidence. He accused Democrats of seeking a federal government takeover of state elections laws and systems.
Congressman Bryan Steil said Democrats have only themselves to blame for long lines during the election.
