Today’s read that should make you worry about voting shenanigans in this critical election year is from Liz Harrington, the national spokesperson for the Republican National Committee. Here’s an excerpt:
Obama used to argue how difficult it was to commit voter fraud in person. The New York Times agreed that the real threat was mail-in ballots, with the more absentee voting, the greater “potential for fraud.”
Now Democrats say, for our safety, we cannot go to the ballot box, where elections are most secure. But campaign operatives can go from nursing home to nursing home, collecting ballots from our most vulnerable citizens to COVID-19. California Gov. Gavin Newsom has declared ballot harvesting an ‘essential activity.” Ballots must also be sent to all registered voters, Democrats say, regardless if they are active or not. That means sending ballots to millions of people who remain on states’ rolls despite having died or long since moved away.
