Either Kennedy Is Lying About Election Integrity or He Is Lost
Senator John Kennedy appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to lie about Democrats’ efforts to protect voting rights. But he slipped an extraordinarily dishonest tidbit into his diatribe, attempting to rewrite history.
Kennedy created a strawman version of the “For The People Act,” claiming it allows ballot harvesting. Kennedy then said it would undermine the integrity of every election in the future and that “we would go through every time what we went through last time,” a reference to the 2020 election.
We went through what we went through in 2020 because elected officials like America suffered months of uncertainty and chaos, punctuated by a violent insurrection at our nation’s Capitol that left five people dead because America suffered months of uncertainty and chaos, punctuated by a violent insurrection at our nation’s Capitol that left five people dead because Donald Trump and Senators John Kennedy, Ted Cruz, and Josh Hawley lied to the American people, and for no other reason.
“Senator John Kennedy’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. It’s infuriating to listen to him lecture the American people about election integrity,” said Ben Riggs, Louisiana Democratic Party communications director. “Kennedy is largely responsible for the erosion of election integrity in America. He lied about the 2020 election and objected to the results even after the insurrection that resulted in five people’s death, including a Capitol Hill Police Officer who was trying to protect Senator Kennedy. Clearly, Senator Kennedy is lying, or he is lost.”
