GOP Sen. Marsha Blackburn Blocks Bill Requiring Campaigns To Report Foreign Offers Of Help
Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee blocked a bill by Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Vrginia that would require campaigns to report any offers of foreign assistance to the FBI.
President Donald Trump announced this week that he would gladly accept help from enemy nations in the 2020 election.
Blackburn — who has a history of lying — whined that campaigns already have too much to report, notes Axios:
We are all for free and fair and honest elections. These reporting requirements are overbroad. Presidential campaigns would have to worry about disclosure at a variety of levels. So many different levels.
