Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “House Democrats and exiting impeachment Republicans pass Liz Cheney's bill, which allows voting 5 days after elections”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a bill to alter the 1887 Electoral Count Act. The so called "Presidential Election Reform Act" revises rules pertaining to the congressional certification of presidential elections, which some contend will benefit Democrats. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who lost her primary race in August and leaves office on January 3, along with Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren, both of whom are on the January 6 Committee.

Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) issued a release on September 21, stating the bill does little to address election integrity, but serves instead to help House Democrats "stack the democratic process in their favor" as well as a "partisan messaging bill intended to score cheap political points."

Tenney suggested that the bill "creates broad private rights of action in a backdoor effort to empower Democrat election lawyers and partisan operatives. "

Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) concurred with Tenney and indicated that the bill serves a partisan purpose and has little to do with safeguarding elections. He told Axios earlier this week, "It's clear that anything Liz Cheney touches is all about whacking Donald Trump and not about making meaningful changes."

While Cheney has touted the bill as bipartisan, Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) suggested that saying so because she supports it is "like me saying a bill is bipartisan because [Republican Rep.] Jeff Van Drew, who used to be a Democrat, is on it."
