    Supreme Court Gives States the Green Light to Clean Up Voter Rolls

    Can a state take reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy of its voter rolls by removing people who have left the jurisdiction?

    On Monday, by a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court answered “yes,” affirming an Ohio law allowing for the removal of voters who have left the state.

    The opinion in Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute, written by Justice Samuel Alito, and joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch, is a major win for voters, who have an interest not only in ensuring that states offer sufficient opportunities to register, but also that they take steps to ensure the integrity of the electoral process.

    Add These Voter Fraud Cases to the Growing List

    Despite the lack of media coverage, evidence of election fraud continues to mount.

    This week, The Heritage Foundation added 26 new entries to its election fraud database, bringing the searchable ledger to a total of 1,132 proven instances of election fraud. That includes 983 cases that ended in a criminal conviction, 48 that led to civil penalties, 79 where defendants were enrolled in a diversion program, and 22 cases of official or judicial findings of fraud.

    Americans should be alarmed. These entries represent irrefutable evidence that fraud has impacted elections in 47 states, and across all levels of government. READ MORE...

    Due Process Rights Could Make a Comeback in Tennessee Thanks to This Bill

    Americans pride themselves on a commitment to due process rights. We hold criminal defendants “innocent until proven guilty,” and believe that everyone should have his day in court.

    Yet, thanks to civil forfeiture laws, many innocent people have had their cash and property seized without ever being charged with a crime, and with few legal protections to rely on.

    Thankfully, this may soon change in Tennessee, where a bill advancing through the Legislature would take a first step toward reforming the state’s civil forfeiture laws. READ MORE...

    The Only Misleading Claim About Voter Fraud: ‘It Doesn’t Exist’

    At the heart of democracy lies not just the right to vote, but the right to vote in a free and fair election. After all, what incentive do voters have to cast ballots if they have no faith in the integrity of the process or the accuracy of the outcome?

    That is why, last year, President Donald Trump established the bipartisan Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. Its mandate was to investigate all manner of threats and challenges confronting the American electoral system and to propose solutions Congress and the states would be free to adopt, amend, or reject.

    Why Dissolving the Election Fraud Commission Is a True Loss for the Nation

    This week, the White House announced the sudden, disappointing news that the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was being dissolved.

    Liberal advocacy groups, which for months have worked to obstruct the group’s efforts to examine the integrity and security of the ballot box, ecstatically declared victory. But their win is a loss for the nation, which remains blind to the true breadth and scope of fraud in American elections.

    As if to emphasize that point, The Heritage Foundation has once again added a slew of new cases to its election fraud database. READ MORE...

    The FAA Is Empowering States to Regulate Drones. Why That’s a Win for Everyone.

    A Nov. 29 hearing on Capitol Hill shed much-needed light on the way the Federal Aviation Administration is running a new pilot program intended to bring state and local governments into the regulatory fold.

    The new pilot program was created by President Donald Trump to speed up the integration of unmanned aircraft systems (also known as drones) into U.S. airspace.

    Drones have exploded in popularity in recent years, as entrepreneurs and innovators continue to find novel and clever uses for this emerging technology. READ MORE...
