With the impeachment inquiry speeding up, it is a bit surprising that the House Democrats have time to deal with anything else. That applies doubly to the man at the point of the inquiry, Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-CA). Yet, he has been far from kicking back on his laurels. The congressman has taken on a vital fight.
The representative from California has been attacking a Supreme Court injustice. It “gutted the voting rights act in 2013.” He tweeted “The right to vote is foundational.” The number of people whose voting rights have been stolen has been the uptick, especially “people of color, students, and low-income voters:”
‘Ever since the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013, far too many Americans—especially people of color, students and low income voters—have had their voting rights under attack. The right to vote is foundational to all other rights. We’re fighting to protect it.’
Schiff referred to Alabama’s Representative Terri Sewell’s (D-AL) tweet about the new “H.R. 4 Voting Right Advancement Act” which just passed out of the Judiciary Committee:
‘Great news – H.R. 4, the Voting Rights Advancement Act, passed out of the @HouseJudiciary Committee today! We are one step closer to restoring the Voting Rights Act to its full strength. Now, on to the House floor! #RestoreTheVote’
