Just before 5:00 p.m. ET, Grassfire received an urgent email from the office of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) about the For the People Act of 2021. McConnell insisted today on the Senate floor that "the real driving force behind [the bill] is a desire to rig the rules of American elections permanently in Democrats' favor."
McConnell also called S.2092/S.1 a "disastrous proposal" and "partisan power grab" that seeks to stop states "from exercising control over their own election laws." The legislation is so bad that, back in May, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) dubbed it "The Corrupt Politicians Act."
In this morning's update (see below), we told you that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has called for a vote on S.2093/S.1 TOMORROW (Tuesday, June 22). That gives grassroots patriots less than 24 hours to make their voices heard.

Senate Update #2 June 21 2021: Partisan Power Grab (Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's office)
+ + + + + + +
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has scheduled a vote TOMORROW on S.2093 -- the For the People Act of 2021. Originally known as S.1, Democrats changed the resolution number after the bill received so much bad press. In a recent email to Grassfire, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) office said:
S.2093 is S.1 with a fake mustache. This bill, a failed Amy Klobuchar [D-MN] substitute amendment offered on May 11 in the Senate Rules Committee, contain narrow so-called improvements that garnered zero Republican support. ... The cloture vote is expected to occur at a time to be determined on Tuesday, June 22. (Emphasis added.)
Republicans are calling the For the People Act of 2021 "a partisan power-grab" by Democrats. During that same Senate Rules Committee hearing in May, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called S.2093/S.1 "The Corrupt Politicians Act," adding:
"This legislation, I believe, is the most radical legislation the Senate has considered in the nine years I've been here, and it is the most dangerous legislation pending before the United States Congress. ... This legislation is designed to ensure that Democrats never lose another election."
Passed by the House of Representatives in March, the legislation is a brazen attempt to ENGINEER future election results in favor of Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) insists the bill is "a one-party takeover of our political system" that would attack free speech, privacy rights "and even send public funds directly to politicians!"
Also, McConnell's office provided Grassfire with a "top ten" list of other dangers that S.1/S.2093 poses to free-and-fair elections:
- Gut Overwhelmingly Popular State Voter ID Laws
- Allow Unlimited Ballot Harvesting
- Mandate Ballot Drop Boxes
- Restrict States' Ability to Maintain Accurate Voter Rolls
- Provide Government Funding for Campaigns
- Create a Partisan FEC
- Chill Free Speech
- Federalize Redistricting
- Impose Costly, Burdensome Mandates on States
- Require Felon Voting

Attorneys General in 20 states are threatening to sue the federal government if the For the People Act of 2021 is signed into law. In a March letter to McConnell, Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), they wrote:
"The Act takes a one-sided approach to governing and usurps states' authority over elections. ... Around the nation, the 2020 general elections generated mass confusion and distrust — problems that the Act would only exacerbate. Should the Act become law, we will seek legal remedies to protect the Constitution, the sovereignty of all states, our elections, and the rights of our citizens."
S.2093/S.1 is a dangerous, un-American bill that seeks to tilt ALL future elections toward Democrats. To stop it from becoming law, grassroots patriots must take action in the next 24 hours. That's why Grassfire created the "Stop The Corrupt Politicians Act!" FaxFire for maximum impact!
