Rabb announces election integrity legislation
HARRISBURG, Nov. 28 – State Rep. Chris Rabb, D-Phila., announced today that he intends to introduce legislation during the 2023 session that would establish an election integrity board to combat election disinformation.
This legislation would give the new board the ability to perform oversight and combat election disinformation, ensuring that candidates for public office accept election results. Election denialism and disinformation are destructive forces in the country.
“Nationwide, over 100 election-denying candidates won primaries this year. Such individuals continue to perpetuate unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud, despite evidence confirming that our elections are highly secure,” Rabb said. “This rhetoric falsely impugns the legitimacy of our elections for the sake of partisan politics, sowing doubt about the validity of results.
“Pennsylvanians deserve elections where legitimate issues are the focus and quality candidates present their positions in good faith. Baseless claims and conspiracy theories meant to disrupt elections have no place in the democratic process.”
