Jackson Lee: ‘We Cannot Have’ ‘Fair and Reputable’ Elections without Dem Election Bills

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) stated that “we cannot have elections” “that are fair and reputable” without passing voting laws that Democrats support.

Jackson Lee said, “[W]e gave this process a very long time. But yet, I am willing to give it more. I believe a rolling, talking filibuster is right. I believe Sen. Manchin is wrong and Sen. Sinema is wrong. Am I angry at them? No. I want to engage with them, and as I engage with them, I want them to take the time to change their mind. Because we cannot have elections, if you will, that are fair and reputable without these particular laws.”
