Biden Targeting Judicial Watch? Judicial Watch Goes to Capitol Hill to Protect Clean Elections

Published by:

udicial Watch is and has been a national leader in defending the rule of law – especially in election integrity. This leadership is evident in the remarkable news that, this week, two of our voting law experts testified to both House and Senate committees on pending legislation that could gut free and fair elections. Senior Attorney Robert Popper testified before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties during a hearing titled “The Implications of Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee and Potential Legislative Responses.” Bob leads our election law efforts and his fully prepared statement is available on our website. You can watch the hearing here. Senior Attorney T. Russell Nobile testified on the same topic before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution in a hearing titled “Restoring the Voting Rights Act after Brnovich and Shelby County.” His remarks are available here and you can watch the testimony here. The ostensible purpose of that hearings was to consider whether congressional action is called for in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s 2013 landmark ruling in Shelby County v. Holder (570 U.S. 529) and its recent ruling in Mark Brnovich, Attorney General of Arizona, et al. v. Democratic National Committee, et al. (Nos. 19-1257 & 1258).
