AOC Warns: GOP Plotting To Overturn Elections After They Lose

AOC is warning America about the GOP plan to steal our elections.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez warned on Sunday that Republicans are laying the groundwork to steal elections even after voters resoundingly reject them.

Ocasio-Cortez criticized the Biden administration for exhibiting naivete when it comes to the GOP’s zeal for undermining the vote.

“I appreciate the White House’s optimism, but I believe it verges on naiveté. It already took unprecedented historic organizing to overcome the voter suppression efforts in 2020, and we barely squeaked through on the majority and White House election we have,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Beyond that, even if we are successful in, quote, unquote ‘out organizing voter suppression,’ which is a ridiculous premise on its face, Republicans are already laying the groundwork in installing state-level attorney generals and beyond to overturn the results of any state election that they frankly do not like in states where they have taken power. And so, even if you are successful in out organizing, they’re laying the groundwork to not even certify the results of the election. ”

The rising congresswoman pointed out that in states like Arizona and the widely criticized “audit” organized by Republican conspiracy theorists there, the Republicans are laying groundwork to overturn races.

Ocasio-Cortez called on her fellow members of Congress, along with President Biden, to ensure passage of legislation stalled in the Senate to ensure voting rights.

Republicans have been passing legislation at the state level designed to suppress the vote, particularly among Black, Latino and young voters, who are all key to Democratic success. In states like Georgia, where Biden won in 2020, Republicans are trying to wrest control of local voting boards away from elected officials with an eye towards skewing results in favor of the GOP.
