Biden’s SBA Subpoenaed For Improper Voter Action

( – A federal government agency has been subpoenaed by a House committee over potential election interference. Legislators are worried the Biden administration has used the Small Business Administration (SBA) to divert resources to a key swing state.

The Small Business Administration was set up in 1953 to help people set up and run small businesses. As well as giving advice and steering government contracts towards small businesses, it also provides loans. Overall it’s one of the federal government’s better ideas and has helped many people turn their business plans into reality.

However, on March 7, 2021, President Biden issued an executive order mandating government agencies “promote access to voting.” On March 19, 2024, SBA administrator Isabel Casillas Guzman announced that her agency had reached an agreement with the Michigan Department of State “to promote civic engagement and voter registration in Michigan.” Coincidentally, Michigan is a key swing state that backed Donald Trump in 2016 and Biden in 2020.

Who will Michigan vote for this time? That’s unclear, and election analysts say it’s closely contested — and now the SBA has suddenly launched a voter registration initiative, which has nothing to do with its core mission, in a state that could decide who sits in the White House for the next four years.

The House Small Business Committee, which has a 15-12 Republican majority, oversees the SBA’s operations. Now it wants to know why 22 of 25 voter outreach events have happened in districts with high percentages of demographics that are being targeted by the Democratic National Convention — and why resources the nation’s small businesses urgently need are being diverted to a political project.

It seems committee members aren’t happy with the answers they’ve been getting from SBA chief of staff Arthur Plews and his special advisor Tyler Robinson. On May 7, the committee subpoenaed the pair, alleging that they’ve failed to turn over documents or show up at scheduled interviews. Committee chair Roger Williams (R-TX) said he’d given Plews and Robinson the opportunity to talk, but the subpoena “appears to be the only way to get them to comply.”
