True the Vote senior adviser and attorney, J. Christian Adams, had strong words for Democratic Congressional Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) yesterday during a CNN segment. The interview, conducted by CNN’s Joe Johns, allowed both left-of-center and right-of-center advocates to voice their sides’ opinions on the controversies surround the issue of election integrity.
Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings repeated his allegation that True the Vote was trying to suppress minority votes. In response, True the Vote’s J. Christian Adams asserts that Rep. Cummings and his allies are “liars, they’re bearing false witness against law abiding citizens who are doing no more than observing the process, and they should be ashamed of themselves.”
Rep. Cummings, who was recently delivered a cease and desist order from True the Vote for consistently making false allegations against the group after misrepresenting his powers as a congressional representative, asserted that “what the True the Vote is doing is criminal.”
J. Christian Adams also stated “True the Vote stands for free and fair elections, follow the law — period” and “True the Vote will be everywhere.”
