Media Roundtable: Heritage Action ED Boasts About Writing & Funding GOP Voter Suppression Bills
In the second half of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we're discussing a leaked video showing Jessica Anderson, executive director of Heritage Action for America, boasting about writing Republican voter suppression bills across the country during a private meeting with top Republican donors in Tucson, Arizona last month. The leaked video was obtained by the watchdog group Documented and shared with Mother Jones.
In the video, Anderson said Heritage Action crafted Georgia's voter suppression law and is writing similar bills for Republican state legislators across the country. "In some cases, we actually draft them for them, or we have a sentinel on our behalf give them the model legislation so it has that grassroots, from-the-bottom-up type of vibe," she said.
