    H.R. 1, the deceptively named For the People Act, is a partisan, federal takeover of the election process and would weaken the security of future elections. It undermines states’ election oversight; prohibits voter I.D.; virtually eliminates any restrictions on vote-by-mail; permits ballot trafficking; and assaults our First Amendment right to free political speech, among many other bad provisions. Further, this bill requires advocacy groups to disclose donors through a searchable government database, it expands the definition of "electioneering" making it more difficult for advocacy groups to mention specific legislation or an elected official's name in its communications, and it will require advocacy groups to file with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) each time it sends out an action that specifically mentions a piece of legislation. In short, this bill is a 'Trojan Horse" aimed at destroying our Republic and is an attempted take-over by the Democrats. They are attempting to ram through every rotten and corrupt bill (pay-off) that they can before the 2022 elections because people see what they are doing. Any decent and honest politician (House & Senate members) will oppose this bill no matter the party. Only corrupt members will vote for this travesty.
