Congressman Gosar Votes Against Rigging Our Elections and Taxpayer Funded Campaigns
This bill hijacks our election process and promotes voter fraud. We cannot condone voter disenfranchisement. Fraudulent voters dilute real voters.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, U.S. Representative Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04), released the following statement after voting against H.R. 1:
“This bill hijacks our election process and promotes voter fraud. We cannot condone voter disenfranchisement. Fraudulent voters dilute real voters,” said Congressman Gosar. “The Democrats bill is a direct attack on our country’s elections. It undermines free speech, it lines the pockets of politicians with taxpayer dollars and ultimately chips away at the core of our democracy. I firmly stand against the Democrats efforts to rig elections.”

H.R 1 makes various changes to voting laws, campaign finance laws, and ethics practices, in contravention of Americans’ First Amendment rights and States’ primary constitutional authorities to regulate elections.
According to its incomplete estimate, the bill would increase spending by $2.438 billion over FY 2019 – 2024. Congressional Budget Office (CBO) assumes that the legislation will be enacted in 2019 and that the specified and estimated amounts will be appropriated for each fiscal year, including supplemental amounts in 2019.
