Washington Governor Jay Inslee is drafting legislation that would make it illegal for elected officials to make “false statements” about elections that are likely to result in violence.
Of course, considering this is vague and can basically pertain to anything it is highly likely this would be used to shut down dissent regarding the integrity of an election.
The Democrat governor in Washington state says he wants to regulate lying.
Actually, the target of Gov. Jay Inslee is “false statements,” and the Daily Caller News Foundation explains he announced he is working on legislation that would regulate candidates and elected officials from “spreading lies about elections that are likely to result in violence.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation pointed out Inslee’s legislation still is being written but said it would be “narrowly tailored” to target those statements made for the “purpose of undermining the election process or results.”
“This legislation attempts to follow the relevant U.S. and state supreme court opinions on this issue. We’re talking about candidates and elected officers knowingly throwing bombs at democracy itself when doing so is likely to result in violence,” Inslee said.
