Washington, D.C. – Look Ahead America (LAA) has issued a statement opposing Florida Senate Bill 7050 (FL SB 7050) as it disempowers citizens.
Ian Camacho, Director of Research, made a formal statement:
If FL SB 7050 were in place in 2021, then I would not have been able to send the Florida clerks vital information that led to the conviction of Emily Jessop Bowers on three counts of double voting. On its face, this bill is undemocratic as it undermines the power of American and Floridian citizens to restore election integrity.
Worse, the bill takes away power from the Office of Election Crimes and Security to make referrals or do anything with the information that it has on election irregularities and crimes. Given that the amended bill includes these changes, it is better to shoot it down than pass a bill with one tiny improvement while making everything else worse.
Citizens, call your state senators and representatives in Florida to kill this bill!
