'Never expected I'd say this': Election expert delivers a terrifying warning
Speaking on CNN this Thursday, election law expert Richard Hasen said he worried about the future of elections in the United States of America.
"I never expected to say I'd be scared sh*tless on CNN, but that's how I feel," said Hasen on CNN's New Day. "I think that we dodged a bullet in 2020, but the way things are lining up, I'm very concerned about our elections going forward, especially 2024 and the possibility that we're not going to have an election where the official results reflect what voters actually want."
Hasen is a professor of law and political science at the University of California, Irvine. He is also the co-director of the Fair Elections and Free Speech Center.
He told CNN that he's not only worried about Donald Trump's election lies, but his calls for "state legislatures to override the will of the people. He added that Republicans are pushing out "those who had the courage to stand up to Trump" and replacing them with people "that are going to make it easier to subvert the will of the people if that's what the political pressure puts on them to make them do."
