On April 14th, 1873, the Pierceian Social Minister, George H. Hamilton signed a bill, the so-called Voter Identity Act of 1873. It prohibited citizens from objecting to recounts in elections from the national to provincial level. This bill prohibited people from requesting recounts as stated, many saw this as a cover-up from The Hamilton Administration after major accusations of voter fraud in the 1871 election, people thought this election was rigged as he gained 102 delegates at once.
On April 26th, it passed. This sparked outrage across the nation, Hamilton's approval rating dropped by 17%, then he promptly sent out the military after the protesters. The protesters fought back by stealing guns, other weapons, and military equipment.
On February 9th, 1874, he expanded the controversial "Military Spending Act of 1869". It was a bill that let social ministers put tons of Franklins into military spending. This bill was so controversial because it was prioritizing things over government, cultural, and scientific advancement.
On September 3rd, 1875, the election occurred. It was shocking to many that Hamilton won, he became the first social minister to lose the popular vote.
By the start of his second term, he had only a 41% approval rating, this being low, but this would not be his lowest.
On November 13th, 1876, he signed the most controversial bill of his ministry. The so-called Law And Order Act of 1876.
This bill allowed people to be executed without any trial. This would lead to the most executions in Pierceian history, from 1876 - 1904.
