On Wednesday, embattled Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham who was accused and later settled $62,500 in campaign cash for sexual assault, went on CNN to announce that she had adopted the far-left Democrats’ radical and unconstitutional agenda trying to make the District of Columbia a state. She was joined on the interview with Democrat D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.
During the interview, the Governor announced she had invited Bowser to join the Democrat Governors Association (DGA), which she chairs. Bowser said, “What is missing is two senators to represent us in the Senate.”
When asked by CNN’s Alisyn Camerota why Bowser is allowed to join the DGA, Lujan Grisham responded, “Uh, well, she’s an executive leader, uh, working on all of the things that Democratic governors are responsible. From continuing to save lives, get folks vaccinated in our fight against COVID, to every other meaningful issue from voting rights protection, health care reform and access, educational investments for every single one of her constituent (sic) and families.” It should be noted all the things Lujan Grisham mentioned are in the scope of most mayors in the country, of which Bowser is–a mayor of a district, not a governor of a state.
The Republican Governor’s Association clapped back at Gov. Lujan Grisham’s latest stunt, writing that what she actually meant was “permanently changing the U.S. Senate’s partisan composition, securing a liberal majority for decades to come and devaluing the vote of New Mexicans on the federal level. Thanks for clearing that up, Mayor.”
In a press release, Lujan Grisham wrote, “Democratic governors are national leaders in expanding voting rights and on the frontlines of stopping Republican voter suppression, and we are honored to fight for D.C. statehood by welcoming Mayor Muriel Bowser to the Democratic Governors Association.”
She added, “We must especially take this important stand, as Republicans across the country continue their ongoing efforts to restrict our freedom to vote and suppress the voices of people of color at the ballot box. There’s no better way for a state to protect voting rights than to elect a Democratic governor – and that’s exactly what the people of D.C. deserve.”
However, Republicans are not working to hamper Americans’ voting freedoms. In states like Georgia, Republican legislators are expanding voting access that both ensures a fair process and makes it easier to vote.
Democrats allegedly stole the 2020 presidential election due to swaths of illegal absentee ballots mysteriously being counted in the dead of night and days after the election commenced. Despite Republicans winning in massive numbers across the country, including picking up legislative seats and local races up and down the ballot, Democrats “won” with statistical impossibilities in states like Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
“Governor Lujan Grisham knows there is no good reason for Washington, D.C. to be a state other than to cement far-left liberal policies into law,” said RGA spokesman Will Reinert. “Governor Lujan Grisham’s support of the Green New Deal, gun grabs and radically higher taxes are what today’s invitation to Mayor Muriel Bowser should mean to New Mexicans.”
