Threats to Democracy in the States

Government corruption at the state level has flourished — and has often gone unchecked thanks to the decline in local journalism and the urgency of addressing federal misconduct. With one party controlling the governorship and both legislative houses in more than half of the states, feeble checks on power combined with underutilized state open records laws have allowed state and local governments to avoid the same scrutiny devoted to federal agencies. American Oversight’s State Accountability Project is filling the void, channeling its expertise in open records litigation to expose state-level corruption and threats to democracy.
En Español

Priority One: Voter Suppression

Corruption of all kinds is rampant in state governments, but the most systemic and insidious form of it is the corruption of our democracy itself. States, often considered “laboratories of democracy,” have over the past decade — and especially since the 2013 Supreme Court decision that severely weakened the Voting Rights Act — systematically been making it harder for people to exercise the right to vote. Multiple states have inappropriately purged hundreds of thousands of names from their voter rolls; others have enacted strict voter-ID laws; and others still have moved, closed, or underfunded voting locations. The pretext for these efforts is often the purported fear of voter fraud, though evidence of any real threat from such fraud remains nonexistent.

American Oversight is currently investigating voter-suppression efforts in Florida, Georgia and Texas. Each has one-party control of its government, and each has seen voter-suppression efforts. We’ve filed records requests for state officials’ and county officials’ communications with prominent voting-restriction advocates, such as former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and the Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky. Other records requests seek communications with certain state lawmakers or representatives of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative political organization that supplies state legislatures with draft model legislation.

 

What We’re Seeking: Georgia

  • Communications between voting-restriction advocates and elections officials in the following counties: Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Dougherty, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hancock, Jefferson, Macon-Bibb, Randolph, Rockdale
  • Communications between Georgia’s Office of the Secretary of State and county officials about changes to precinct or polling locations
  • Communications that the offices of the governor and the secretary of state had with voting-restriction advocates, with representatives of ALEC, or with certain state legislators

What We’re Seeking: Florida

  • Communications between voting-restriction advocates and elections officials in the following counties: Broward, Collier, Duval, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough, Leon, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach
  • Communications that the offices of the governor and the secretary of state had with voting-restriction advocates, with representatives of ALEC, or with certain state legislators
  • Communications that Florida State Legislature staff had with state elections officials or voting-restriction advocates about voter registration issues, Amendment 4, or H.B. 7089, which requires people with felony records to pay all court costs before their voting rights are fully restored
  • Communications that State Rep. James Grant, the author of H.B. 7089, and two staff members had with voting-restriction advocates and state elections officials

What We’re Seeking: Texas

  • Communications between voting-restriction advocates and elections officials in the following counties: Cameron, Dallas, Harris, Hidalgo, Starr, Tarrant, Travis, Zavala
  • Communications that the offices of the governor and the secretary of state had with voting-restriction advocates, with representatives of ALEC, or with certain state legislators

 

More to Come

State-level corruption takes many forms, not just voter suppression. American Oversight plans to target as much of it as possible, wherever we find it. It was Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis who referred to states as the laboratories of democracy, and first said that sunlight is the “best of disinfectants.” Using transparency tools backed by litigation, American Oversight takes that truth to heart.

 

Proyecto Estatal de Rendición de Cuentas

Corrupción en el gobierno al nivel estatal es una amenaza a la democracia. Con la disminución del periodismo local y la mala conducta al nivel federal, la corrupción en el gobierno estatal se extiende desenfrenada. Con solo un partido político quien controla por completo la gubernatura y las dos cámaras legislativas en más de la mitad de los estados, además de leyes de libertad de información y registros públicos poco utilizados, y un sistema débil de controles y equilibrios del poder, se les ha permitido a gobiernos estatales y locales evitar el escrutinio que se aplica a las agencias federales. 

El proyecto estatal de rendición de cuentas fue creado para llenar este vacío. Con nuestra experiencia con  leyes de libertad de información y registros públicos, queremos exponer la corrupción, mala conducta, y menosprecio por la democracia al nivel estatal. 

 

Primera Prioridad: Supresión del Voto

A menudo considerado “laboratorios de la democracia,” los estados tienen control sobre el sistema electoral – la ubicación de los centros de votación, las urnas, las papeletas y máquinas de votación. Desde la decisión de la Corte Suprema en 2013 que debilitó severamente la Ley de Derecho al Voto, estados han estado complicando el voto sistemáticamente. Muchos estados han purgado de forma inapropiada cientos de miles de votantes de las listas de votación; otros han promulgado leyes estrictas sobre los documentos de identificación del votante; otros todavía han reubicado, cerrado, o no tenido fondos suficientes para centros de votación. La excusa por estos esfuerzos es, muchas veces, supuesto miedo al fraude electoral, aunque evidencia de fraude es inexistente. 

En este momento, American Oversight está investigando esfuerzos para suprimir el voto en Florida, Georgia, y Texas. Cada estado tiene un partido político quien controla la gubernatura y las cámaras legislativas, y han visto esfuerzos y el uso de métodos para la supresión de votantes. Hemos presentado solicitudes pidiendo registros, comunicaciones entre oficiales del estado y de condados y destacados defensores por las restricciones al voto, como ex Secretario del Estado de Kansas, Kris Kobach, y Hans von Spakovsky de Heritage Foundation. También hemos pedido las comunicaciones entre legisladores del estado específicos y representantes de American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), una organización conservadora que suministra legislaturas estatales con modelos y proyectos de legislación. 

 

Lo Que Estamos Buscando: Florida

  • Comunicaciones entre defensores de que se limiten las leyes electorales y el derecho al voto y oficiales de elecciones en los siguientes condados: Broward, Collier, Duval, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough, Leon, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach. 
  • Comunicaciones entre las oficinas del gobernador y el secretario del estado con defensores de la restricción de voto, representantes de ALEC, y legisladores estatales específicos.
  • Comunicaciones que empleados de la legislatura del estado de Florida han tenido con oficiales de elecciones y defensores de la restricción de voto sobre problemas con el registro de votantes, Enmienda 4 o H.B. 7089, que requiere que personas con registros de delitos graves paguen todos sus aranceles judiciales antes de poder votar de nuevo. 
  • Comunicaciones que el Representante Estatal James Grant, el autor de H.B. 7089, y sus empleados han tenido con defensores de la restricción de voto y oficiales de elecciones.

Lo Que Estamos Buscando: Georgia

  • Comunicaciones entre defensores de que se limiten las leyes electorales y el derecho al voto y oficiales de elecciones en los siguientes condados: Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Dougherty, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hancock, Jefferson, Macon-Bibb, Randolph, Rockdale.
  • Comunicaciones entre la Oficina del Secretario del Estado de Georgia y oficiales de condados sobre cambios a distritos electorales o centros de votación. 
  • Comunicaciones entre las oficinas del gobernador y el secretario del estado con defensores de la restricción de voto, representantes de ALEC, y legisladores estatales específicos.
  • Comunicaciones sobre la tecnología de seguridad del voto.

Lo Que Estamos Buscando: Texas

  • Comunicaciones entre defensores de que se limiten las leyes electorales y el derecho al voto y oficiales de elecciones en los siguientes condados: Cameron, Dallas, Harris, Hidalgo, Starr, Tarrant, Travis, Zavala.
  • Comunicaciones entre las oficinas del gobernador y el secretario del estado con defensores de la restricción de voto, representantes de ALEC, y legisladores estatales específicos.
  • Comunicaciones sobre la tecnología de seguridad del voto.

 

Más por Venir 

Corrupción al nivel estatal ocurre en varias formas, no solo en cuanto el derecho al voto. American Oversight planea revelar los más tanto posible, donde sea que lo encontremos. Fue el juez de la Corte Suprema Louis Brandeis quien fue el primero en referirse a los estados como laboratorios de la democracia, y dijó que la luz del sol “es el mejor desinfectante.” Usando herramientas en favor a la transparencia, respaldados por la litigación, tomamos esta verdad a corazón.
