Election Manipulation Reaches Hospitals

With a combined asset value of almost $58 million, the Indiana Health Centers, Athens Neighborhood Health Center,  and Mariposa Community Health Center receive funding on a regular basis from the federal government.

These federally qualified health facilities, registered as tax-exempt nonprofit groups in Indiana, Georgia, and Arizona, respectively, serve low-income patients eligible for Medicaid and Medicare. The FQHCs and their equivalents will greatly benefit from President Joe Biden’s earlier this year decision to release $4.4 billion for them, the largest yearly budget boost in ten years.

But there is more that unites the government-funded health institutions. Similar to many individuals dispersed over the United States, they are associates of a little-known Boston organization named Vot-ER, which is responsible for an extensive “nonpartisan” endeavor to register susceptible sufferers to vote in advance of the 2024 contest between Biden and the previous President Donald Trump.

However, an investigation found that Vot-ER is everything from moderate. Vot-ER is a progressive hub that is well-positioned to play a significant role in voter mobilization leading up to November. It is funded by major dark money groups that support Democrats, staffed by liberal activists, and organized by a previous White House fellow who is currently seated on a Dept. of Health and Human Services panel centered on outreach to “vulnerable patient communities.”

This mobilization drive focuses on a 2021 Biden executive order that gives federal agencies previously unheard-of additional powers to register voters with the aid of “authorized, neutral third-party groups and state authorities.”

Furthermore, records uncovered by the Freedom of Information Act suggest a clear connection between Vot-ER and White House initiatives to implement Biden’s directive. According to the records, two senior staff members of the Boston-based organization attended a 2021 meeting to arrange the order’s implementation with representatives from the Department of Justice, the Executive Office of the President, and other groups, as well as other external left-wing NGOs.

The Washington Examiner has published many reports on Biden’s executive order from March 2021 about voter registration and the left-wing organizations associated with it. The order, according to Republican lawmakers and conservative legal experts, is unconstitutional and will serve as a political tool to secure Biden’s illegal reelection to a second term.

Stewart Whitson, an attorney with the right-leaning think tank Foundation for Government Accountability, asserted that the IRS Code legally prohibits all 501(c)(3) groups from engaging in political voter registration or get-out-the-vote campaigns. In 2023, the lobbying arm of FGA discovered a 30-point swing in favor of Democrats among low-income voters who have never got assistance, among those currently enrolled in benefits.

Whitson stated, “Yet, Biden’s executive order creates the framework for organizations like Vot-ER to do precisely that, a blatant disregard for federal law.” “Now that the president is in charge of the DOJ, Congress ought to take action and look into this conduct.”

Vot-ER Executive Director Aliya Bhatia emphasized in a message to the Washington Examiner that her organization complies with all IRS laws and runs impartially.

“Our attempts to engage voters are free from any political party, candidate endorsement, or opposition,” Bhatia stated. “Our goal is to establish a link between voter registration and health-related outcomes.”

In March of that year, Biden signed an executive order for 2021 mandating that each federal department submit a strategy outlining how it will boost voter registration and turnout to the president’s domestic policy adviser. Due to the possibility that the present administration may use the entire might of the government to further a partisan goal, conservative legal experts—such as fellow Hans von Spakovsky from the Heritage Foundation—say such organizations usually have no connection to registering voters.
