In Nevada ex-Secretary of State and now Congressman Dean Heller likes to tell anyone who will listen why he dislikes HR-811 and all about the amendments he has added to the bill. He falsely claims to have “inserted” amendments that would exempt Nevada from the requirements of the bill and another that would require English-only instructions on the voting machines. Heller also falsely claims that Nevada is the only state that has established a paper-trail on its voting machines, avoiding lawsuits. He then goes on to claim that passage of HR-811 would erase all of the advances made by the state; advances that were taken when he was SoS, by the way. It appears that Congressman Heller has no problem at all misleading his constituents and the local media who report his false statements. Congressman Dean Heller, today’s “Enemy of Democracy.”
