AFP/Barron's: Big Lie 2.0: Trump Bids To Remake US Democracy In His Image
Government watchdog Common Cause is backing the Freedom to Vote Act, introduced by the Democrats in Congress on Tuesday, which would ban removing election officials for partisan political purposes.
"His Big Lie has just been metastasizing and really undermining trust in our elections in a way that is very dangerous," Stephen Spaulding, senior counsel at the organization, told AFP.
But Spaulding believes the greatest remedy to electoral dark arts remains robust turnout at the ballot box.
"In 2020, we had the highest voter turnout in more than a century in the middle of a pandemic, so voters really showed up," he said.
"So ultimately, voters need to continue to show up in record numbers."
