    Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover

    Democrats And Republicans Unite To Rescind Last-Minute Obama Order Seeking Federal Election Takeover

    Don't get too excited. This isn't a move by bug-eyed Princess Nancy and the cousin of that hideous Amy Schumer to work with the other side of the aisle to do something right. This is a move by Democrat and Republican politicians who haven't been corrupted by Washington yet.

    All 50 state secretaries of state are urging the Trump administration to rescind a last-minute Department of Homeland Security directive calling state election systems “critical infrastructure.”

    Many state officials fear this is the first step toward a federal takeover of state-run elections, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

    While deep political discord may be found on other issues, state secretaries — who oversee all election machinery — appear completely united against the former administration’s attempt to insert the federal government into state-run elections.

    Then-Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson surprised and outraged state election officials with his Jan. 6 action, just two weeks before President-elect Donald Trump was to assume the presidency

    Johnson tried to portray his move as part of the Obama administration’s effort against Russian government hacking of Democratic Party emails during the presidential campaign.

    But state officials retort that election machines and the infrastructure are not connected to the Internet and therefore are immune to cybersecurity attacks.

    While that last part isn't totally true all over the country, what IS true all over the country is the federal government can't be trusted to own everything about elections.

    The less feds are involved in anything the better, and absolutely for sure as far as elections are concerned.
