Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to H.R. 4 Passage


Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. House passed H.R. 4, also known as the “Pelosi Power Grab.” In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:

“H.R. 4 — AKA the ‘Pelosi Power Grab’ — is the radicals’ latest attempt to centralize election administration in The Swamp. It would require that federal bureaucrats preapprove changes to virtually anything that could impact elections, from redistricting down to the placement of stop lights. It would create a system in which virtually every election district in the nation would be subject to orders from Washington. Worse, it is premised on fixing a ‘problem’ that no longer exists — it was fixed long ago. Any right-thinking person who understands the Constitution’s instructions that elections are a matter to be administered by state and local governments should be offended by this proposed legislation, as we are. We urge members of the House to vote against and defeat this absurdity. The battle to preserve election integrity continues, and our activists will not give an inch.”
