Tallahassee, FL — Val Demings has announced she will be introducing a bill that would destroy the election integrity measures that were recently passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis.
RPOF’s executive director Helen Aguirre-Ferre issued the following statement:
“Val Demings’ so-called “Every Vote Counts Act ” would put Washington D.C. in charge of Florida’s elections.
“Demings never tires of pushing Nancy Pelosi’s radical agenda and this time she is going too far by trying to hijack Florida’s elections process. Governor Ron DeSantis has made election integrity a top priority since getting elected. He has worked diligently with the Florida Legislature to ensure that our elections remain safe and secure.
“She will stop at nothing. First, Demings led efforts in the House to enact Nancy Pelosi’s disastrous H.R. 1 elections bill that would eliminate voter ID laws, force tax dollars to be spent on campaign advertising, and eliminate Florida’s election system safeguards. Now, she’s introducing another bill that would preempt state laws in an effort to undo critical election safeguards that were put in place in Florida.
“Perhaps Demings doesn’t realize that under Florida’s election integrity law Floridians will be proud our state will remain a leader in election administration. Elections should be free and fair, and under Florida’s new law Governor DeSantis has strengthened voter identification, prohibited mass mailings of ballots, banned ballot harvesting, and prohibited private money from administering elections in our state.
“Demings’ priorities could not be more clear — she will always place Pelosi’s demands and her liberal agenda ahead of what is best for Florida.”
