Tuesday’s HausGuest – Hans von Spakovsky of The Heritage Foundation

I’m VERY excited to announce that Hans von Spakovsky is going to be Tuesday’s HausGuest.

Here’s his bio:

Hans von Spakovsky is an authority on a wide range of issues – including civil rights, civil justice, the First Amendment, immigration, the rule of law and government reform — as a senior legal fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.

As manager of the think tank’s Election Law Reform Initiative, von Spakovsky also studies and writes about campaign finance restrictions, voter fraud and voter ID, enforcement of federal voting rights laws, administration of elections and voting equipment standards.

Heritage’s election reform project examines not only how to protect the integrity of campaigns and elections but to achieve greater fairness and security. “In an era of razor-thin election margins, these issues are vital to the preservation of our republican form of government and the rule of law,” von Spakovsky says.

Previously, as manager of the think tank’s Civil Justice Reform Initiative, von Spakovsky studied how plaintiffs’ attorneys and activists attempt to manipulate the courts for their own ends — at the expense of the public.

He is the co-author with John Fund of the book “Who’s Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk” (Encounter Books, 2012) and “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department” (HarperCollins/Broadside June 2014).

Before joining Heritage in 2008, von Spakovsky served two years as a member of the Federal Election Commission, the authority charged with enforcing campaign finance laws for congressional and presidential elections, including public funding.

Given that Tuesday is California’s primary election day, this article will be front and center for our conversation:Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 8.44.24 PM

This headline he wrote GRABBED my attention and we’ll definitely be talking about this too: Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 8.48.14 PM

If we have enough time, we’ll also get to this – which will be an extension of the conversation last week with Debra Saunders on the same topic:Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 8.51.24 PM
