While some Democrats drag their feet on voting rights, big-budget conservative groups are funding the destruction of democracy.
Jane Mayer’s video on MSNBC’s Morning Joe:
Jane Mayer told Morning Joe that big-budget Conservative groups “are laying the groundwork, many people have told me, of potentially significant mistrust of the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

The audit itself which people think like a clown show, like you said, is actually not it’s funny when you look at it closely. Because what he’s trying to do knock down a certified American presidential election. And the forces that push that, and that’s what I was look, include a number of – a whole range of very eminent national curator groups.
People you don’t usually have think of it as involved in some kind of unclear conspiracy theories. So you have Heritage Ffoundation in there. You have the American LLegislative Exchange Council, supported by large companies. You have the Bradley Milwaukee Foundation, Wisconsin, which is one of the greatest curator foundations, it has $ 850 million in his cash to spend this kind of adventure things.
And what they do is finance people who spread doubts about the safety of US elections. why are they doing it? Because it works for them. I don’t know how many of them believe it. But what it’s done is that they are exploit this distrust of American elections in order to pass laws that repress on voting rights and to keep the the people they don’t want polls, basically. And they also pose the foundation, many people have told me, for potentially many mistrust of 2022 elections and 2024 elections.
The right has tasted virtually unlimited power, with no respect for the constitution under the latter type, and they want more. The ALEC and Heritage fund the war on democracy as a cynical game to keep and maintain power.
They don’t care that democracy is not something that can be changed to work for them, but still lasting. Once they kill democracy, it is dead.
The goal is nothing less than the permanent deprivation of the right to vote of a majority of American voters.
Senate Democrats must wake up
Senators like Manchin and Sinema may yearn for filibuster, but if Republicans are successful, those senators will protect filibuster and then lose their seats in rigged elections.
Democrats in the Senate need to wake up and forget the rules. Attach the provisions relating to the right to vote to a reconciliation bill. Include provisions in government funding bills. Be creative because the forces funding this war on freedom don’t play by any rules. They’re not going to stop, so Democrats can’t help but protect democracy.
