End Citizens United // Let America Vote President Tiffany Muller released the following statement regarding the compromise bill struck on the For the People Act:
“End Citizens United // Let America Vote Action Fund applauds Senator Raphael Warnock for his leadership in working with his colleagues to reach an agreement on voting rights and election legislation. The new Freedom to Vote Act upholds the central pillars of the For the People Act by protecting the freedom to vote for all Americans, stopping partisan gerrymandering, and ending dark money so that billionaires can’t buy elections. If enacted, it will be the most significant anti-corruption and voting rights bill in generations.
“Senator Warnock was instrumental in moving this vital legislation forward and we are grateful for his tireless efforts and commitment to getting this done. He made it clear that this was a moral imperative and that we could not stand by and allow this unabashed assault on the freedom to vote that has not been seen since the Jim Crow era.
“The Senate now must do whatever it takes to pass this bill immediately to ensure everyone has a say in our democracy, not just corporate interests and big donors. It cannot let outdated procedures stand in the way. We will continue the fight until the job is done.”
