Members of the progressive Democrat “squad” in Congress won their reelection bids in Tuesday’s House elections. In 2018 the group first made their debut, coming onto the scene after taking long-held incumbent Democrat seats in their districts. The group, now known as the ‘squad’ promised from from their inception to shift the Democratic party more to the left and change the political status quo. That’s exactly what they’ve done.
First, the group has had the support of the Democratic socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders, D-VT, and they’ve teamed up with him. One of their biggest issues is to push a sweeping climate change agenda, known as “The Green New Deal” to reduce to net-zero emissions by 2030.
Moreover, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-NY, Ilhan Omar, D-MN, Ayanna Pressley, D-MA, and Rashida Tlaib, D-MI have declared victories as results slowly rolled in Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.
These four women have also reportedly expanded this election, by adding three new progressive Democrats to their team. That group of new members includes Cori Bush, D-MO, Jamaal Bowman, D-NY, and Mondaire Jones, D-NY.
“This moment is brought to us by us, by our movement for social, racial, and economic justice. Now, our movement is going to Congress and we will beat the challenges of this moment and the movement side by side, arm in arm with our fists in the air, with our fists in the air ready to serve each other until every single one of us is free. Thank you for electing me as your first Black congresswoman here in the State of Missouri,” said Bush in her victory speech Tuesday night.

MI police memos confirm 2020 nationwide voter fraud; info was even given to FBI
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office has confirmed that there was in fact a state investigation into thousands of suspected fraudulent voter registrations during the 2020 election. Additionally, the information was referred to the FBI. According to police memos reviewed by Just The News, Michigan authorities suspected there was a possible voter registration fraud scheme occurring across multiple states during the 2020 election and were concerned enough to bring in the FBI.
Just The News writes “but what happened since remains mostly a mystery” adding:
Department and Michigan State Police, a firm called GBI Strategies was under scrutiny as an organization central to alleged voter registration fraud in the 2020 presidential election, which was first investigated by city and state authorities before the FBI took over.
Contacts between local law enforcement and the FBI continued into 2022 but there is no evidence of what happened after that in the memos obtained by Just the News through state Freedom of Information FOIA requests.
Police from Michigan interviewed GBI Strategies employees there and cited specific instances of registrations that appeared suspicious or fraudulent, the memos show. One State Police memo described the possible crime being investigated as “Election Fraud by Forgery.”
Specifics of what happened include the city clerk’s office saying that a woman dropped off fraudulent voter registrations on Oct. 8, 2020 and said she worked for GBI Strategies, the police report reads.
The police interviewed the woman, called “Suspect 1” in the police report, and she explained that she “receives $1150.00 a week, hotels services and a rental vehicle for her work.”
She also said she was “tasked with finding unregistered voters and provide them with a form so they can get registered and obtain their ballot,” according to the police report. “Suspect 1 initially stated that her ‘canvassers’ earn money for each person that completes the form. She later told us that they are paid $9.25 per hour with extra money for working weekends.”
Muskegon police interviewed yet another woman who worked for GBI Strategies from Atlanta, Ga. She worked with another man from Atlanta and had a supervisor from New York. The woman also mentioned a Philadelphia office.
Danny Wimmer, press secretary for the State Attorney General,told The Detroit News that GBI Strategies conducts voter registration drives and is headquartered in Tennessee.
Earlier this month, Wimmer, told Just the News that among 8,000 to 10,000 voter registration forms that were submitted to the Muskegon clerk before the 2020 general election, some were suspected to be fraudulent.
“An organization turned in some thousands of voter registrations throughout the fall of 2020, estimated on the high end to be cumulatively 8-10,000, and some within those batches were found to be suspicious or fraudulent,” Wimmer said. There were legitimate registrations within the batches. The city clerk receiving the batches alerted authorities when she began noticing irregularities.
“None of the fraudulent material was incorporated into the state’s qualified voter file, and this had no effect on any ballot requests or associated processes. This attempted fraud was detected because the system worked,” Wimmer added.
The Muskegon Police Department began investigating GBI Strategies after the Muskegon City Clerk’s Office reported suspected voter registration fraud, according to a police report first dated Oct. 16, 2020, which Just the News obtained from a FOIA request.
