The Democrat National Committee sent out a fundraising email on Thursday attempting to raise money off of Republican events to strengthen election integrity. Thursday’s target was Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“Governor Ron DeSantis just signed an ugly anti-voter bill into law in my home state of Florida. S.B. 90 will make it more difficult to vote by mail and severely restrict the availability of ballot drop boxes — it’s voter suppression plain and simple,” the email said.

“But, this is just one example of an astonishing 360 anti-voter bills introduced at the state level this year. And the best way to stop them is by electing Democrats who will vote them down and having the resources to challenge them in court when they do become law.”

And, it just so happens, the DNC is “uniquely positioned to do just that,” the email continues. It called Republican efforts to ensure elections are fair “horrifying.”

“They know they can’t win at the ballot box on merit alone — so instead, they’re pushing legislation that makes it harder for folks to vote, especially in communities of color,” the email states.

The email came from Nikki Fried supposedly, the Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services in Florida.

If Democrats don’t cheat, why do they fight these voter integrity bills so hard? And why do they think that “communities of color” can’t understand changes to voter laws?
