I have been following Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ voting record for more than ten years: first, as a contributor to KYRS Community Radio’s Brief Congressional Update, and later in “How your U.S. Lawmakers Voted” in the Sunday edition of the Spokesman-Review. Representative McMorris Rodgers has a consistent record in supporting deregulation and “freedom.”
Just recently, according to the Thomas Voting Reports, Inc. of Oct. 25, CMR voted against Combatting Election Interference (H.R. 4617) and also against requiring sponsors of internet political ads to identify themselves in the ad.
Furthermore, she voted for an amendment to the above bill to strip it of the authority of the U.S. attorney general to correct misinformation about voting dates in state and local elections if nonfederal officials fail to do so. According to McMorris Rodgers’ votes, therefore, it seems alright to provide the electorate with false election dates. Nadine Woodward or Ben Stuckart could target parts of Spokane with the wrong election date, and that would be okay with Representative McMorris Rodgers.
Luckily, for the sake of democracy, both of her votes were opposed by the House of Representatives, which chose to uphold electoral integrity.
