LaHood, Bost Show No Respect for Democracy

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Following Illinois Congressional Representatives Darin LaHood and Mike Bost joining 104 of their House Republicans in filing an amicus brief to overturn election results in four other states, President Kristina Zahorik of the Illinois Democratic County Chairs Association (IDCCA) released the following statement:

“Darin LaHood and Mike Bost apparently do not believe that the votes and the will of the people matter this election. By signing their name to a legal argument that ignores the rights of a state to determine how to manage their own elections, they are not only showing their hypocrisy when it comes to states’ rights, they are also attempting to undermine votes legally cast by citizens of this country.”

“The IDCCA salutes Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul for standing up for the rights of Americans to vote safely and securely. Shame on Bost and LaHood for tarnishing Illinois’ reputation and for this baseless attack on our democracy.”
