Heritage Action: Arizona Election Integrity Bill ‘Will Go into Effect Immediately After Passage, Not in 2026’

Heritage Action said on Wednesday an Arizona election integrity bill that will “clean up the state’s early voting list and remove registrations that have been inactive in two consecutive election cycles,” will go into effect immediately, and not in 2026, as State Sen. Kelly Townsend (R-16) said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday.

Washington Post Gives Biden Four Pinocchios for False GA Voting Law Narrative: ‘Election Day Hours Were Not Changed’

President Joe Biden advanced a false narrative about Georgia’s new election integrity law, claiming that it reduces voting hours, thereby compromising the ability of working-class Americans to go out and vote.

House Republican Leaders Cancel Vote To Fund Susan G. Komen – Major Donor to Planned Parenthood

The cancellation of the vote comes in the wake of an investigative video released Tuesday morning by pro-life group Center for Medical Progress which depicted Planned Parenthood’s chief medical officer speaking about how to abort a baby intact in order to be able to harvest its body parts for sale. Funding to the breast cancer group would likely have benefited Planned Parenthood, leading Heritage Action to object to a vote on it.

Politico: Senate No Child Left Behind Amendments ‘Hashed Out Behind Closed Doors By Democrats’ Over Civil Rights Issue
