Trump warns of rigged elections as states continue to move towards voting by mail

American Wire

President Trump and other GOP officials are making it clear that they oppose enhanced vote-by-mail plans such as those proposed by California Gov. Gavin Newsom. Tuesday morning, the president repeated his warning that allowing voting by mail will result in a “Rigged Election.”

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed,” Trump tweeted.

“The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!”

California already allows vote-by-mail, but voters have to make a request for the ballot. Under Newsom’s new executive order, voters will automatically get a ballot without having to put in a request.

On Sunday, the Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit against Newsom, accusing him of an illegal power grab with his plan to send absentee ballots to all registered voters. The lawsuit alleges Newsom’s order is less about protecting the health of Californians and more about protecting the electoral prospects of the governor’s political party.

Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a statement saying, “Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Gov. Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections. Newsom’s illegal power grab is a recipe for disaster that would destroy the confidence Californians deserve to have in the security of their vote.”

Gov. Newson says the move is necessary to ensure that voters have safe and secure access to the polls during the pandemic.

“California will continue to defend Californians’ right to vote, including their right to vote by mail, and the right to hold an election that is safe, secure, and accessible. Voters shouldn’t have to choose between their health and their right to vote,” a spokesperson for Newsom said in a statement.

California isn’t the only state that is exploring mass voting by mail. Michigan and Nevada also have proposals to allow voting by mail because of the coronavirus.

    Californians “SHOULD” be able to vote by mail, under the following conditions. Give the voting establishment TWO legal (federal) forms proving “who you are” and WHY you want to vote by absentee ballot. THEN, after the person has been properly “vetted” he/she should be able to “vote by mail”.

    No mail voting! Get your ass down to the polls, Show your American ID and vote. Mail voting should be only for the REAL people disabled to come and those should be mailed certified!!

    The voting list should only have real citizens listed and those illegal immigrants that were issued driver licences should not be on that list. The only way the conservatives may deter this is by having scrutineers at every voting poll in the country. Also, check to insure no illegals are on voting list

    Mail in ballots = voter fraud! All elections should require voters to have IDs and completed paper ballots. Mail in ballots gurantee that democrats will ‘win’ 200% of all votes and that the presidency and congressional representatives will all be democrats. It is a system of voting which opens the door for endless cheating and fraud.

    NO vote by mail! The dems are not concerned with the health of Americans, but are doing everything they can to make sure President Trump won’t be re-elected. If you can go to the beach, have lunch at a cafe/restaurant, etc. you can most certainly get yourself to the polling location and vote in person.

    I am sick to death of this governor of California. Who doe’s he think he is, God. He and his Aunt, Nancy Pelosi are bringing this country down quicker than any war could. All people who vote should show ID that proves not only who they are, but that they are an American Citizen at a Secure Polling Place. This Pandemic that has killed less that 2 percent of the country is continually being dragged on by the Democrats. The Democrats have kept us locked up and so afraid for their own agenda. STOP THIS INSANITY NOW! Governor Gruesome needs to be recalled ASAP.
