House Dems holding first hearing today on sweeping democracy reform bill & Republicans invited 2 of party’s biggest vote suppressors to testify against it. GOP terrified of fair elections motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
House Dems holding 1st hearing today on huge democracy reform bill that includes:

-Automatic voter registration

-Nationwide early voting

-Public financing of elections

-End to Congressional gerrymandering

-Release of presidential tax returns

You can watch @HouseJudiciary hearing on HR 1 here
2 GOP witnesses against HR1 are totally discredited former members of Trump’s defunct “election integrity” commission who’ve made wildly false claims about voter fraud that have been repeatedly debunked by federal courts motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
GOP Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, ranking member on House Judiciary Committee, just said "we have long lines because a lot of people wanted to vote”

GA had 4.5 hour lines in heavily black areas of Atlanta but not white areas

State closed 214 polling places since 2012
Republicans on House Judiciary Committee falsely accusing Dems of stealing elections but none of them have mentioned massive election fraud committed by GOP in NC09
Let me repeat this: Republican members of Congress keep bringing up voter fraud but continue to ignore the single clearest & largest case of election fraud in 2018, committed by Republicans in NC09
.@vanitaguptaCR highlights Trump fraud member Hans von Spakovsky's long history of voter suppression & lies about voter fraud, notes federal judge in Kris Kobach proof of citizenship trial cited his "myriad misleading statements" & "unsupported examples" motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
Not a single House Republican has signed on to bill to make it easier to vote & harder to buy elections. Another sad commentary on GOP
Thank you @Sifill_LDF: "It's time we stop dealing with fantasy & we deal with facts. Mr. Adams & Mr. von Spakovsky have had years to prove the existence of widespread, in-person voter fraud that would justify voter ID. And they have been unable to do it"
