Oversight Project Uncovers White House Attempts to Rig Election

May 2, 2024 2 min read

WASHINGTON—The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project released a memo Thursday detailing recent records the project obtained which show the Biden Administration's coordination with left-wing groups to increase partisan left-wing voter registration.  

In March 2023, the Oversight Project filed a FOIA request with the Department of Justice for all records regarding the department’s current or planned implementation of Executive Order 14019 (“Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting”). Returns show that the Department of Justice hosted a listening session with “voting rights” advocates as part of this implementation but the sessions involved only left-wing 501(c)(3)s discussing voter registration efforts. 

The documents uncovered by the Oversight Project show that the groups that attended the listening session were affiliated – either by political donation or party affiliation – with the Democratic Party. One Green Party-aligned group was in attendance, but not a single Republican. 

Mike Howell, executive director, and Kyle Brosnan, chief counsel for the Oversight Project at The Heritage Foundation issued the following statement regarding the memo release:  

"The Oversight Project is actively investigating multiple threats to our election systems. One of the biggest dangers to free and fair elections is the Biden Administration's weaponization of every single federal agency to work with far-left groups for the biggest get-out-the-vote operation in human history. 

 

“Of course, these efforts are only being pointed in one direction in an illegitimate attempt to keep President Biden in the White House. Our findings prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this whole effort was implemented in a radically partisan manner. We will be releasing much more on this threat soon and urge all members of the public to stay alert. 

 

“The Oversight Project has sent FOIA requests surrounding the executive order to every agency and in key states seeking to shed light on the depth of the Biden administration's weaponization of federal resources and influence on elections. Our determination to uphold transparency in the wake of insufficient congressional oversight regarding this executive order remains resolute."
