Mike Lee Says Voting Reform Legislation Was 'Written By The Devil'

Sen. Mike is criticizing the massive election reform bill that passed the United States House of Representatives earlier this week, saying it was “written by the devil himself” on Fox & Friends this morning, according to a report from The Salt Lake Tribune.

Lee said he disagrees with everything in the bill, which includes measures such as nationwide automatic voter registration, several campaign finance reforms, and a requirement that every state use an independent commission for redistricting to reduce political gerrymandering. 

Lee suggested that things like provisions that set several national voter registration and mail-in voting standards are a power-grab for Democrats. He said these steps take power away from the states, which makes them unconstitutional.
