AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lawrence has some words to say to some "radical" Republicans. Claiming that they are "dismantling" America's rights to vote by working to pass stricter voting regulations, "The Hunger Games" actress accused them of "cheating."
The 30-year-old shared her message in a PSA for the non-profit RepresentUs on behalf of the For the People Act. "Whatever your personal politics are, whatever side of the aisle you find yourself on, you need to know that your vote matters and the outcome of our elections are not maneuvered and manipulated," she said in the clip shared on Thursday, June 10.
"In Texas, Georgia and Florida and 44 other states, there's a radical wing of the Republican Party that is actively dismantling America's right to vote because they don't have the numbers to win otherwise," she added. "Without Gerrymandering or shutting down hundreds of voting facilities within reach of minorities, and specifically targeting and carving out people of color, they can't win. But this is cheating and it is not democracy."
"There's a law in the Senate right now called the For the People Act and it can reverse these anti-voting laws and it can stop billionaires from being able to buy our elections," the Oscar winner continued. "It even says that all voting machines need to be made here in the U.S. But it's going to take a lot of pressure from us to get it to pass."
Jennifer went on to urge viewers to contact their respective senators with the help of RepresentUs. She then concluded her message by stating, "Let the politicians bicker and throw tantrums, let's just make sure they remember who they work for."
Jennifer's PSA came just a few days after West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin declared that he will vote against the "partisan bill." When speaking on "Fox News Sunday", Joe said, "It's the wrong piece of legislation to bring our country together and unite our country, and I'm not supporting that because I think it would divide us more. I don't want to be in a country that's divided any further."
