Sinema Cosponsors Protecting Our Democracy Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema called for action to protect American elections from foreign attacks and cosponsored the Protecting Our Democracy Act, legislation to create an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate foreign interference in U.S. elections.
 
“I applaud Senator McCain’s leadership and work to investigate accusations of foreign interference in the 2016 election, and I support bipartisan action to protect the constitutional voting rights of Arizonans and the security of our country,” said Sinema. “This is not about politics or our President-elect. This is about securing the legitimacy of the American electoral process from foreign attacks. Open elections free from foreign interference are fundamental to our American democracy, and attacks must be taken extremely seriously and prevented.”
