Trump Threatens to Withhold Funding From Michigan Over Voter Cheat-By-Mail Plan

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan China, Democrats have been coming up with schemes to leverage the crisis for partisan benefit.  It’s almost as though the whole thing was planned…

Yesterday, Michigan’s Secretary of State announced that the state would be sending ballot applications — not actual absentee ballots — to 7.7 million voters in the state.

According to estimates, the plan will cost $4.5 million, which the secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, said would come from the CARES Act. That’s the act passed by Congress to provide funding for Election Security grants.

President Trump has been a vocal opponent of vote by mail because of the potential for massive voter fraud.

PresidentTrump: “So the problem with the mail-in ballots: It’s subject to tremendous corruption.  Tremendous corruption, cheating. And so I’m against it.”

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton warned of efforts by the left to steal elections by pushing a vote-by-mail “free for all” amid concerns over the coronavirus.

Fitton contended that fears in the wake of the global pandemic are leading to the left’s use of the virus as a “pretext” to increase absentee ballot voting…

(The Daily Signal) … the president said in a tweet, we do need absentee ballots for “many senior citizens, military, and others who can’t get to the polls on Election Day.” But the president is right to be worried about elections conducted entirely by mail.  

Absentee ballots are the tools of choice of election fraudsters because they are voted outside the supervision of election officials, making it easier to steal, forge, or alter them, as well as to intimidate voters. 

Going entirely to by-mail elections would unwisely endanger the security and integrity of the election process, particularly if officials automatically mail absentee ballots to all registered voters without a signed, authenticated request from each voter.  

Voter registration rolls are notoriously inaccurate and out of date, containing the names of voters who are deceased, have moved, or otherwise have become ineligible.  

Having thousands of ballots arriving in the mail for individuals who no longer reside at a registered address risks those ballots being stolen and voted. 

As an example, in just one California county…

Fitton announced that LA County has sent notices to as many as 1.5 million inactive voters that are still on the county’s voter rolls as the first step in removing their names from those rolls and eliminating that avenue of voter fraud.  

Judicial Watch found that in LA county there’re actually more names on the voters rolls than residents eligible to vote.

(Forbes.com) To be clear, campaigns do have a legitimate reason to turn out their voters. Hiring people or engaging volunteers to help and encourage people to vote, whether early and in person, by mail, or on Election Day, is a critical part of a winning strategy. 

But ballot harvesters can get aggressive, they can cut corners, and they can guarantee votes for the politician or group that hired them by taking physical possession of ballots and voting in place of the legal voter…

Instructively, as Texas tightened its mail-in ballot laws in 2017, California weakened them by the same measure. This unleashed a massive deployment of ballot harvesters on a statewide and partisan scale, resulting in the largest historical victories for California’s Democrats since the blowout Watergate aftermath elections in 1974.

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is on the short list under consideration to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate.  No one expects Biden to serve a full term… you do the math…

Michigan was a key swing state in 2016 and is likely to be one again.  The residents of 49 other states deserve to be protected from Whitmer’s fraudulent scheme… to become president…
