Trump Says Lawsuit Is Coming Over Dems Push For Voting By Mail
Several Democrats are pushing for an immediate transition away from traditional in-person voting to a vote-by-mail system in all 50 states ahead of the 2020 election amid the coronavirus.
By Trending Politics, June 22, 2020:
President Donald Trump is not happy about that and said this week that he plans to file a new lawsuit against voting by mail.
During a radio interview Monday, the president told conservative host Michael Savage that vote-by-mail could allow Democrats to cheat in the upcoming elections, the Washington Examiner reported.
“We’re suing, and we’re filing another big lawsuit, I think, on Friday, and I think we have a good case,” Trump said.
Trump suggested that Democrats may try to swing the election by failing to send conservatives vote-by-mail ballots.
Trump said: “[California Democratic] Gov. Newsom announced that he’s sending out millions and millions of mail-in ballots. You say, ‘Who are they sending these to?’ Maybe people who are, let’s say, in a Republican district, and maybe those ballots, don’t get sent there. This is the craziest thing. This will be a rigged election if they are allowed to do it.”
Trump continued: “I think that’s one of the biggest risks I have. And the biggest risk, frankly, that the Republican Party has is mail-in ballots. It’s a very big risk.”
One issue many have with nationwide vote-by-mail is that it could potentially allow millions of inactive and possibly illegal votes to occur, which could have a huge effect on the outcome of the election.
This could be a disaster, according to at least one expert.
Government Accountability Institute research director Eric Eggers says the Democrats’ plan for nationwide mail-in voting would send ballots to 24 million inaccurate and flawed voter registrations.
Eggers said nationwide mail-in voting would be wide open to fraud and abuse.
“The concern I have if we’re trying to mandate national mail-in elections — which by the way was part of the language that Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats inserted in the first version of the most recent stimulus package — would be that we have such massive problems with voter rolls in this country,” Eggers said. “So, now are we going to be mailing ballots to people that authentically don’t exist and or are ineligible voters?”
“If you have national mail-in ballots where the supervisor of elections are mailing ballots to everybody on the voter rolls and we know per Pew [Research] Center statistics that we’ve got at least 24 million flawed or inaccurate voter registrations in this country,” Eggers said. “That’s 24 million ballots that are potentially going to people with the wrong address or to people that are dead or to people that have double registered.”
Eggers said mail-in voting ensures voters associated with those flawed voter registrations would get the chance to vote in the 2020 presidential election.
