Top Election Law Experts Rip HR 1 to Shreds: ‘The Worst Bill I’ve Ever Seen’


Two of the nation’s top election experts — The Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky and National Review’s John Fund — along with Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft agreed that H.R. 1, the For the People Act, would have a disastrous impact on U.S. elections. All three explained how the bill, which passed the House of Representatives earlier this month with no Republican support, would fundamentally change how elections are conducted during the Election Integrity Virtual Conference hosted by Regent University’s Robertson School of Government in Virginia Beach, Virginia. “H.R. 1 is the worst bill I’ve ever seen and the most dangerous bill I have ever seen when it comes to elections,” von Spakovsky, a former member of the Federal Election Commission, said. Von Spakovsky and Fund — who co-authored the 2012 book “Who’s Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk” — both pointed out that H.R. 1 would overturn voter ID laws, which are present in 34 states.
