(Alexandria, VA) – August 18, 2021: Today, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) wrote a letter responding to Senator Whitehouse’s attacks on the organization, other individuals and groups, including claims that it was involved in January 6 attack on the United States Capitol and tried to reverse the outcome of the 2020 election.
“You have made a serious mistake,” writes PILF President J. Christian Adams in a letter to Senator Whitehouse. “In your letter of August 13, 2021, to Rep. Bennie Thompson, you make multiple factual misstatements, confuse who the Public Interest Legal Foundation is, and improperly ascribe involvement in the events of January 6, 2021. In short, your letter smears people and our organization falsely. Please correct and retract it.”
Senator Whitehouse seems only concerned with the funding of groups with whom he disagrees. Moreover, his constituents support the work the Public Interest Legal Foundation is doing to make it easy to vote and hard to corrupt the system.
PILF has documented thousands of problems in our election system —including deceased, duplicated, and voting twice at same addresses, ineligible addresses, foreigners voting and even those registered in multiple states casting simultaneous votes, he can call the Public Interest Legal Foundation to learn more.
