Kamala Harris continues to bungle her way as she’s running point on multiple policy fronts.
Harris’ errors are piling up in important battles.
And now, Kamala Harris made one error on TV that is going to make Democrats’ lives miserable.
Harris is now in charge of the Democrats’ so-called “voting rights” push.
This is centered around the legislation Republicans call the “Corrupt Politicians Act” which will allow the federal government to take over elections and impose the 2020 procedures in all 50 states as well as neutering the ability of states to enforce voter ID laws.
Republicans filibustered the bill, but Democrats were trying to craft a “compromise” that would enact that election power grab, but would include a national voter ID law to get support from congressional moderates.
Congress watchers are quick to point out it’s likely Democrats would only keep the provision in the bill long enough to clear the Senate filibuster, with Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer stripping the voter ID provision in one of the few amendments he’ll allow.
Under that scenario, Schumer is betting none of the so-called “moderate” Democrats will dare go against him and he’ll hold on to the votes to pass the election power grab on the final vote.
Nevertheless, influential South Carolina Democrat James Clyburn came out as open to it, and claimed he always supported voter ID.
That struck many as suspicious given his long history of calling voter ID laws racist.
And in an interview with BET Kamala Harris threw a curve ball in these efforts, again regurgitating the false claim voter ID laws could be racist because some people may not have access to a copy machine or Kinko’s.
“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that could mean. Because in some people’s mind, that means, well, you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove that you are who you are. Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t — there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no OfficeMax near them. People have to understand that when we’re talking about voter ID laws, be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are. Of course, people have to prove who they are, but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are,” Harris stated.
Critics continue to wonder what the problem is with asking people to prove who they are when they show up to vote.
The only answer isn’t good.
And with many suggesting Democrat claims of support for the “compromise” version of the “Corrupt Politicians Act” are a ruse, the fact that Kamala Harris is fighting against it is leading many Americans to think there is something fishy going on.
