League of Women (LWV) Voters Doesn’t Represent Women

Voters need to know about the partisan nature of the LWV, how phony their stated focus on good governance is, and how little they represent the interests of women.

When I think of the League of Women Voters (LWV), I think of gray-haired old ladies organizing candidate forums. The candidates answer questions while an audience sits quietly and respectfully. Voters in Minnesota need to know about the partisan nature of the LWV, how phony their stated focus on good governance is, and how little they represent the interests of women.

Here is the truth which is easily verified by visiting the LWV website. The LWV is a lobbying organization.  LWV leaders prowl the halls of the Minnesota State Capitol promoting an agenda fully aligned with the Democratic party.

According to Open Secrets, the LWV spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on lobbying every year.

The LWV fashions a public image of being a neutral party in elections as a distraction and reputation enhancer for its advocacy activities. From abortion to immigration, the LWV is a special interest group pushing for Leftist ideas that have nothing to do with elections.

Responsible Republican candidates should refuse to participate in LWV forums!

The well coordinated operations of the LWV advance abortion, gun control, and illegal immigration, among a host of other far left objectives. The League certainly doesn’t represent fetuses who would grow up to be women; it doesn’t represent women who want to protect themselves with legal firearms; and it certainly doesn’t represent women who lose their jobs to persons in the country illegally.

I urge responsible Republican candidates for elective office to refuse to participate in the LWV candidate forums and to, instead, call out the LWV for the leftwing lobbying organization it is.
