House GOP chairman accuses key government agency of acting as Biden 'campaign arm'
The chairman of the House Small Business Committee is demanding more information after a GOP investigation alleged links between SBA voter registration efforts and the Biden campaign's target demographics.

FIRST ON FOX: The top Republican on the House Small Business Committee is accusing the Biden administration of using a key government agency as its "campaign arm" in a critical swing state ahead of the 2024 election.

"Earlier this month, my colleagues and I sent a letter to the SBA inquiring into their Memorandum of Understanding with the Michigan Department of State. It appears that the SBA is diverting its resources away from assisting Main Street so it can register Democrat voters," Chairman Roger Williams, R-Texas, told Fox News Digital.

"Federal agencies should not act as campaign arms for their Administrations, period. Americans have a right to know the extent of the SBA's involvement, and based on further investigation, it appears even more concerning. I look forward to hearing from Administrator Guzman as to why her agency is engaging in election efforts on the taxpayer's dime."

It comes as President Biden's re-election campaign eyes Michigan as a must-win state in the 2024 race. Biden beat former President Trump by less than 3% there in 2020.

Williams' committee is investigating the Small Business Administration's collaboration with the Michigan Department of State on a program "to promote civic engagement and voter registration in Michigan," according to a press release announcing the partnership.

The press release said the Michigan Department of State would "create a unique URL for the SBA to use to drive online visitors to register to vote," and that the SBA's Michigan field office would allow state government officials to facilitate in-person voter registration at the federal agency's business outreach events. It is part of an overall effort by the Biden administration to expand access to voter registration, launched by a 2021 executive order.

An investigation by the House Small Business Committee found that 22 out of 25 of such outreach events have taken place in counties with the highest population of Democratic National Committee (DNC) target demographics.

Meanwhile, 11 of 15 Michigan counties that showed the largest voter registration increase over the last year have ranked highest in population of young voters and Black voters, according to the committee - two of the left's most-sought voting blocs.

Williams sent a letter last week to SBA Administrator Isabel Guzman demanding more information on whether her federal office is helping expand Biden's voter base.

"The Committee wrote to you on April 4, 2024, requesting further information about your involvement in voter registration in Michigan. You failed to provide a briefing, narrative response, or any documents by the deadline. The Committee is incredibly concerned that the Small Business Administration (SBA) improperly involved the federal government in America's electoral processes," Williams wrote.

Fox News Digital reached out to the Biden campaign and the SBA for comment.

Very similar to what Mark Zuckerberg got away with in the 2020 election. With all the money the DNC has and the 3-1 monetary advantage the Biden campaign has you would think they would use their own money to go find and register democrat voters. I guess they intend to do this until the people stop them.

Still no response from the Biden campaign or the SBA.

For a party that supposedly believes in "free, open, and fair" elections Democrats sure as hell use government and the legal system a lot to stack the deck in their favor.

Professor Alan Dershowitz just said that the antisemitic violence on campus is far worse than Jan 6th. You might want to check with your cousin to see if the *** has anyone assigned to it.

How would you feel if Republicans registered Republican voters with taxpayer funds?

Zuckerberg found a loophole in 2020, one that should have been made illegal before now.

Democrats sure as hell aren't trying to earn them.

First they tried lawfare- but when Trump actually exercised his right to appeals- it was going to take too long. So they tried to keep Trump off state ballots using Secretary of States. Until the Supreme Court threw that out. Now they are trying to keep independent candidates off of the ballot including Kennedy who is polling well among college students.

The party of "free, fair, and open elections", what a load of shit.

This has nothing to do with the GOP.  This is Democrats using taxpayer funds to promote Democrat voting.

If they are too lazy or dumb to do it on their own, then they are too lazy and dumb to go to the polls and vote.
