Secretary Merrill Statement on McConnell's Attempt to Tie COVID Relief Funding to Investigating Baseless Election Conspiracies

“This is a cynical ploy to prevent much-needed COVID relief by feeding into baseless conspiracy theories that have been dismissed by dozens of courts across the country. Senator McConnell is directly attacking the hard-working local election officials of both parties who administered an election that has been called ‘the most secure in history.’ It is time for Senator McConnell to put aside his partisan posturing, respect the will of the American people, and work across the aisle to put critical aid in the hands of people who are struggling throughout our country.” - Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill
