    Biden Tapping Tax Dollars to Boost Dems, Turnout, And Warn House GOP

    Published on

    In anticipation of the next midterm elections, Republicans in Congress and election watchdogs are raising concerns that the Biden administration and left-leaning NGOs may be funneling funds to favor Democrats.

    Biden issued an executive order titled “Promoting Access to Voting” in March 2021. The order instructed federal agencies to develop proposals to expand opportunities to register to vote and participate in the political process, and then submit their strategic plans to the White House Domestic Policy Council.

    According to Just The News, congressional Republicans have sent letters to 12 federal departments, as well as to the directors of the Office of Management and Budget and the Domestic Policy Council, expressing their reservations about the directive.

    “Federal agencies should be focused on serving the American people by fulfilling their respective missions, not engaging in the Biden Administration’s political activities,” said nine ranking members of Republican House committees after mailing letters to 12 federal agencies.

    “At a time when our nation is facing many crises, we want to ensure that President Biden is not diverting resources away from important programs that fall directly under our congressional oversight,” the Republicans continued.

    How agencies will verify that federal employees do not violate the Hatch Act while implementing the presidential order is one of the concerns expressed by Republicans. The Hatch Act bans federal workers from using their official titles or positions to engage in political action, which is described as “activity directed at the success or failure of a political party, partisan political political group, or candidate for partisan political office.”

    “Biden is revving up his reelection campaign with federal agencies,” says Phill Kline, head of The Amistad Project, an election watchdog organization.

    The effort is funded by “Biden Bucks,” according to Kine, a reference to “Zuckerbucks,” the approximately $400 million from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that is widely believed to have been funneled through left-leaning nonprofits to mobilize the Democratic vote for the 2020 presidential election.

    The Center for Tech and Civic Life, which received the majority of Zuckerberg’s $400 million in contributions, has previously stated that the money were used to make voting safer during the epidemic, regardless of political orientation.

    While Biden Bucks are supporting activities comparable to those privately sponsored in 2020 in the name of pandemic safety, according to Kline, the president is utilizing public funds under the guise of democratic engagement.

    Kline noted that a number of statutes are violated if the purpose of the executive order is to target a voter profile that helps one political party at the expense of another. The administration, however, is “trying to disguise” its intent, he said. “The challenge,” he acknowledged, “is proving intent.”

    While Kline said that there’s a “possibility of a lawsuit” challenging implementation of the executive order, most election misconduct cases require investigation or prosecution by state or local agencies, which haven’t really researched or understood them.

    “A lot of laws don’t have appropriate sanctions or standing,” Kline explained, noting that only candidates, not voters’ groups, have standing to bring election lawsuits, noting “concrete harm” is the threshold for standing, which means lawsuits can’t be filed until after elections.
