FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Monday, March 1, 2021
Following Donald Trump’s speech at CPAC this weekend, during which he repeatedly lied about the For the People Act (HR1/S1), Stand Up America Managing Director Christina Harvey issued the following statement:
“It should come as no surprise that Donald Trump would lie about a law that would make voting more accessible for millions of Americans, combat the corruption that ran rampant during his administration, and reduce the impact of white, wealthy, and well-connected men like him in our politics.
“This shameful disinformation campaign is nothing more than a desperate attempt by GOP leadership to stop this bill—which is supported by a majority of registered Republicans.
“Members of Congress should ignore these blatant falsehoods and vote this week to send the For the People Act to the Senate.”
