Join Jewish Dems In Demanding Congress Protect Our Elections
We know unequivocally from the findings of the U.S intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, tipping the scale in favor of then-candidate Trump. Russian active measures to meddle in the U.S. presidential election included tactics such as the stealing and publication of emails, penetrating the electoral systems of several states, and launching a targeted misinformation campaign via social media.For the past two years, President Trump has blatantly ignored and even contradicted the assessments of his intelligence agencies, including while standing next to the perpetrator of these very attacks, Vladimir Putin.Republicans in Congress have been equally irresponsible in their response, refusing to take measures to counter ongoing Russian interference in our democratic institutions, including through the allocation of meaningful resources to secure our election systems. Such resources are needed to build and strengthen our cybersecurity defenses against future attacks, including in the November election.Join with JDCA today in signing the following letter to your Representative and Senators, urging them to hold Russia accountable for meddling in the 2016 election and allocate meaningful resources to counter Russian interference in our democratic institutions. The letter demands that Congress provide additional resources to strengthen election security in order to prevent future attacks, including in the 2018 midterm elections.The integrity of our democratic institutions is at stake. Join JDCA in imploring Congress to TAKE ACTION to protect our country from this ongoing threat.
