Crow Statement on Russia, Iran Obtaining Voter Data
Congressman Jason Crow issued the below statement after national security officials announced that Iran and Russia obtained voter registration information as part of their efforts to interfere in the 2020 presidential election.
“Election security is national security, as yesterday’s announcement by the FBI made abundantly clear. These attacks require swift and fast action by the Trump administration and the Senate, which have repeatedly failed to take up the SHIELD Act to protect our elections and democracy.
Dedicated to transparency and accountability, Crow is a co-sponsor of H.R. 1 and co-led the FIRE Act, which would require PACs and campaigns for candidates running for local, state, or federal office to report any offer of campaign donations or meddling from a foreign national to law enforcement.
