Perkins: Dems Want To Exploit Crisis With Vote-By-Mail

Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:

With Democrats trying to use the coronavirus to push America toward its endgame of universal mail-in ballots, voters need to wake up to the gamble they’d be taking with democracy. Already, two liberal senators, Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Ron Wyden (Ore.), are trying to capitalize on people’s fears with what they call the Natural Disaster and Emergency Ballot Act of 2020. But frankly, Americans ought to be more afraid of the chance they’d be taking with their vote.

On “Washington Watch,” Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), who worked as an election official for two decades, said he has plenty of concerns about the idea — not the least of which is the incredibly short timetable to get a new process up and running.

Democrats, he goes on, are talking about a system with no witnesses, no voter ID, no certainty that your vote would even be delivered. “These are things that any rational person should be concerned about.” Now, obviously, the traditional absentee ballot is fine for people who are physically incapable of going to the polls because of illness or military service, etc.” But that’s not what we’re talking about here.

In 2018, there were stories of Democrats all across the state knocking on doors to either “help” people vote or pick up their ballots for supposed delivery. What’s to stop someone from trashing those ballots? Or, as officials in Texas discovered, vote for you? “The harvesters sit around and fill these out by the hundreds, often by the thousands,” said one political consultant. We cannot let anyone exploit this crisis to take away the integrity of our elections.
