(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – November 5, 2018: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today commended the U.S. Department of Justice’s plan to monitor and enforce federal election laws with personnel across 19 key states.
“Jeff Sessions is doing a wonderful job directing the Department to enforce all federal election laws in sensitive jurisdictions and at large,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “What a refreshing restoration of the rule of law. This DOJ leadership, unlike the last administration, are clearly setting a course for how to deter, detect, and confront violations of election law. The work will not end when the polls close tomorrow. The Public Interest Legal Foundation is committed to sharing its data and investigative leads gathered in the weeks to come.”
The federal press release struck a new tone not seen in a decade:
“Citizens of America control this country through their selection of their governmental officials at the ballot box. Likewise, fraud in the voting process will not be tolerated. Fraud also corrupts the integrity of the ballot.”
