HR1, which is the Democrats’ so-called “For the People Act,” has passed the House:

Democrats say the bill would bolster election security, but Rep. Dan Crenshaw helped expose the Left’s “priorities” and concerns on the issue of voting:
Today I offered a motion to recommit #HR1 reaffirming that only US citizens should have the right to vote.
Dems rejected it.
Next time you go to the ballot box, keep that in mind. The future of their party is in cities like San Fran, where illegals can vote. Let that sink in.

And Rep. Crenshaw’s tweet sure did anger many on the Left side of the aisle. Crenshaw later had this exchange with Dem Rep. Joe Kennedy III:
As GOP stands unified against a bill to strengthen our democracy & increase transparency in our elections, it‚Äôs important to remember that the #NC09 seat is vacant because a GOP candidate tried to steal an election & only failed because local journalists uncovered the truth. #HR1

TRUTH: it would legalize vote harvesting across the entire country, use your tax $ to do it, and limit free speech drastically. All in the name of ‚Äúdemocracy.‚ÄĚ
Even ACLU opposes it. https://t.co/Pn72uB3hEe

With Republican control of the Senate and Trump in the White House, the Dems’ HR1 isn’t going anywhere, but they’re going to keep trying.
Ballot harvesting should be outlawed. What happened in CA is scandalous. Rep Crenshaw is spot on here. https://t.co/0c0dRHWQTk

This is something that continues to be overlooked. What went on in NC has actually been made legal in CA and likely directly led to Democrat wins in Orange Co, so spare me the outrage. #HR1 is a dumpster fire. https://t.co/m4b6s3tWZn

Crenshaw is definitely a rising star and, so far, it seems deservedly so (which is not always the case, as we know…)
