House Democrats pass bill to prevent foreign interference in elections

House Democrats on Wednesday night approved a sweeping election security bill, known as the SHIELD Act, in an effort to combat foreign influence in American elections. The Stopping Harmful Interference in Elections for a Lasting Democracy, or SHIELD Act, would require that candidates and political committees notify the FBI and other authorities if a foreign power offers campaign help.

Hey, this should mean that the Dems cant hire Fusion GPS to hire a former British intelligence agent to make up nonsense and put it in a dossier and then use information laundering to get an investigation spanning years opened into a Presidential candidate. Wont prevent Glenn Simpson from making contributions to said dossier and helping with the info laundering though, I suppose.

The south will rise again my ass. I mean I’m down for the “Heritage not Hate” debate if my fellow southerners want to turn it into heritage thing and give it a new meaning. I just don’t fly the flag cause I don’t fancy it and has too much of a bad reputation, for very obvious reasons.

"Warner added that if a foreign government offers to interfere to help a campaign 'the appropriate response is not to say thank you. The appropriate response is to call the FBI.'" Well that sounds reasonable. As far as I know, offers to bribe politicians are also supposed to be reported. Is anyone arguing that that's an attack on free speech?
