Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement regarding the Committee on House Administration’s Report: Political Weaponization of Ballot Harvesting in California. The report highlights the likely voter fraud and abuse that took place during the 2018 election as a result of California’s unlimited ballot harvesting.

LaMalfa said: "California Democrats in Sacramento inflicted irreversible damage on our State’s elections. AB 1921 paved the way for mass ballot harvesting to benefit Democrat candidates for State and Federal office. Based on the data in this report, the House of Representatives should immediately open an investigation into the 2018 California elections and determine how widespread the damage was. Manipulative practices that undermine the trust citizens place in the electoral process, like ballot harvesting, need to be banned. States have the right to set up elections in their territory, but not skew the outcome. Congress must assert its role in ensuring Congressional candidates are fairly elected.”
